Unlikely but true: At the Pirate's Cove's '80s night, after the clock strikes midnight, guess what really gets the dance floor going? No, not Madonna -- though plenty of girls dress up like she did during her Like a Virgin phase, all decked out in mesh and lace. Not "Thriller," though some enterprising scenesters take the time to dig up MJ-style jackets. We're not sure why it works, but even the mohawked punks go nuts for Journey's "Don't Stop Believin'" and Europe's "The Final Countdown." Seriously. Hold on to that feelin' every Tuesday.
