Second Chance Prom

Even if you had a good time at your prom, you can still have a better time at the Second Chance Prom. You're older, you've got some cash in your pocket, you've had 10 years to work on your lines, and Mom and Dad (probably) won't be waiting up for you. In honor of Armed Forces Day, this year's prom committee has selected Red, White, and Blue as the theme. DJ Big Al will spin hits from the '80s and '90s, and on-the-spot photos will be available of you and your date in front of the balloon arch. Arrive early and vote for the king and queen. You're allowed to drink now too -- but it's still bad etiquette to make out in public, even if she's your wife.
