If I can only come to one After Dark Event, why should I chose this one?
There are so many reasons to come to this party. If you're a sci-fi buff then I'll tell you that after tons of negotiation we were able to get the real DeLorean with all the time traveling equipment that you've seen on "Back to the Future" merchandising. And here's a run down of the entertainment for this event: We'll have shows by very talented After Dark dancers, great acrobatic feats from Cirque La Vie and we'll also be providing great food, great cocktails, hookah bar, karaoke lounge, etc. If all this sounds like something that you want to experience then come on in and let's make this the best party ever!
We'll see you ... After Dark
How should I dress for the Time Traveler's Ball & Burlesque Event?
As Always, dress in theme, in Renaissance garb or dress to impress. So, what does it mean to dress in theme for this party? Well you could be a person from any time period as though you just stepped out of a time machine. You could be a person from a past of present that never actually happened such as steampunk. You could also be a time traveler in the spirit of Dr. Who or other sci-fi shows and movies which could include aliens that we will encounter in the future. Let your imagination be your guide!
As always you may also dress in the park's theme or nice club wear.
