Slay! ‘Buffy the Vampire Slayer’ Fan Prom Happening in Jersey City NJ This Weekend
It was 25 years ago this week that series 'Buffy the Vampire Slayer' premiered on the WB, instantly becoming must-see TV on Monday nights. Now, there's a whole event dedicated to the cult classic!
If you were a fan and always wished Sunnydale High was a real place, there's a 'Buffy'-themed prom happening this weekend in New Jersey.
'Buffy' fans can immerse themselves in a real-life Sunnydale High School prom experience Saturday, March 12th.
The party will feature 90s music from DJ Phillip Nasty and the band The Boyfriends, according to NJ.com, and a costume contest, so you can go as your favorite 'Buffy' character! Are you a Willow? An Angel? A Cordelia? A Spike? Or do you have the confidence to show up as the series' MAIN star?!
The 'Buffy' prom is going on at a restaurant and bar called Porta in Jersey City. But if you want to commemorate the show's 25th anniversary with other devotees, it may be worth the drive!
There will also be vampire-themed cocktails and prizes!
The prom is the brainchild of 'Buffy' fan Ariana Farfan, a makeup artist and bartender here in NJ. She reached out to a friend who works at Porta, hoping to give the show the Garden State tribute it deserves.
