Tired of the political attack ads on television? Step away from the tube and into the nation’s first and largest transit prom! In its fifth year, MetroLink Prom will pay homage to our greatest civic duty – participating in our great democracy during election year. Instead of electing a Prom King and Queen, we will elect a Prom President and Prom Vice-President (First Ladies and Gentlemen get recognized, too, of course). Accordingly, this year we encourage patriotic Promwear—something red, white, and blue, if possible—and we always love costumed attendees (looking forward to your best rendition of Abraham Lincoln—or Sarah Palin).
What: 5Th Annual MetroLink Prom
Who: All lovers of mass transit, formalwear, and democracy
Where: Meet at Grand MetroLink Station, 7pm
When: Saturday, October 20, 2012, 7:00pm
How Much: Just a two-hour pass (please buy one!)
Just like it sounds – a full-blown, high school-style prom aboard your favorite transit system. Dress in your finest attire—try to wear something patriotic and/or red, white, and blue—and meet us at the Grand MetroLink Station on Saturday, October 20th at 7 p.m. We’ll direct you from there. When we arrive at the Richmond Heights Station, we’ll march to the Boulevard development across from the Saint Louis Galleria and award the night’s finest dressed (America-themed formalwear or costumes) and most patriotic with the title of Prom President and Prom Vice President before riding back to the Grand Station. Along the way, live bands, including the Takedown, will keep us dancing and entertained.
We will then proceed to our after-party at Six Row Brewing Company (3690 Forest Park Avenue, 63108; less than a half mile from the Grand Station).
