G-String Runway Show, Obscura Prom, and First Friday Over The Weekend

Obscura Prom at Rips Ales & Cocktails The cats behind venerated monthly dance party Obscura offered the chance to relive one of high school's biggest rites of passage on Saturday, June 8, at Rips Ales & Cocktails with annual their prom. It had all the trappings of a John Hughesian experience (minus all the adolescent melodrama and an appearance by Ducky Dale), including DJs like Adrian Flanagan and JonnY Rogers providing a soundtrack of '80s dance pop and New Wave hits, tuxes, corsages, a photo booth, and maybe even a smidge of gleeful awkwardness.
