WHAT: Paradise By the Dashboard Lights: Americana’s One Year Anniversary Prom!’
WHEN: Saturday, May 19th, 10pm-2am.
WHERE: Americana and the back seat of your parents’ Mercury.
The One Year Anniversary Prom starts at 10 pm on Saturday the 19th, and will feature DJ 2-4-8 and Phase Two. Enjoy spiked punch, dancing, a prom photo booth & enter to be crowned Prom King & Queen. Best prom attire at the dance Saturday night will win.Prom King and Queen will receive a $100 Americana gift card!
“Paradise By the Dashboard Lights” is going to be represented in the photo booth decorations but can certainly be represented in dress as well. All prom attire is welcome and will be eligible for judging for king and queen, especially if you decide to dress up like Meat Loaf. For those that don’t know “paradise by the dashboard lights” is a song by rock legend Meat Loaf all about “backseat make outs.” People can make their own interpretation but shouldn’t worry about their dress…. the tackier the better!! We are going for fun here not formal. A “hot mess” if you will. We will have props for the photo booth like bottles of Boone’s Farm, Zima, Thunderbird, Mad Dog, etc.
Saturday Prom Dinner: Join us for dinner on Saturday night as the fine people from Des Moines Art Center’s Art Noir will be giving tours of the Pappajohn Sculpture Park at 5:30 and 8pm.
Sunday Prom Brunch: Sunday, May 20th, Americana will serve brunch from 10am – 2:30pm. 10% of the proceeds will be donated to the Des Moines Art Center to help its free admission policy. Guests can celebrate with Americana on Saturday night or Sunday morning by dressing in their best prom attire and showing off their style by getting your official prom photos taken under a balloon arch at the restaurant.
