People here love their theme parties. You can’t go on any form of public transportation on a Friday or Saturday night without seeing groups of girls all dressed up in some theme or a bunch of guys with crazy tshirts and wigs. Many times it is bachelor/bachelorette parties (the call them hen parties and stag dos here). There are also several 80s bars/clubs in London. I think you see where I am going with this. My friends and I have talked about doing an 80s night forever but just hadn’t done it, until a few weeks ago. It was Tamara’s birthday so we all decided to put on our best leg warmers and stretchy pants and party it up 80 style! One thing that I did not consider was that because none of us live really close to each other we were just going to meet at the club. That, of course, means that I would have to ride public transportation dressed in my 80 get up. Awesome. The actual club was interesting. It has posters of 80 bands and Top Gun was playing on a loop at random tvs scattered out around the bar area. The dj played 80s music and we danced and danced and danced. Let me take you through some of the better pictures.
The awesome dance floor. It lit up and changed colors. Rad.
Who knows what I was doing? Don’t you love the crimped hair!
Clockwise from top: Katie, Bridgette, Taiya and Tamara and Andrea.
Awesome dance moves.
Jeanne bought me these rocking leggings and I had no idea where I would ever wear them. Now I know. And they were rockin’.
Giving our feet a break and playing with the 80s paraphernalia that we bought.
Goofing with Taiya, who is Tamara’s friend who came to see her from Seattle!
I love this picture. I think it is hilarious. Embarrassing but hilarious.
Fun night. Fun girls. Fun pictures. I hope we have more fun girls nights like this soon!!
