What had started out as a pleasant opportunity for AP Islanders to relive memories of their younger years turned into a scene right out of a teen comedy last Friday night.
The Zen Den and Newton Construction 'Second-Chance Prom' began with a fair showing of AP's most well dressed citizens; women in their fanciest ball gowns and the men in their tuxes and suits. DJ Smooth Love kept the music flowing as both couples and 'stag' attendees alike danced, mingled and drank.
But there was something possibly wrong with some of the refreshments that were served that evening, or so reports multiple sources who wish to remain anonymous due to embarrassment over any possible dishonorable actions.
"I felt kind of dizzy after a couple of glasses of champagne. Usually, I'm not that susceptible to bubbly, but either the alcohol content was really high, or there was something off about it," states one prom-goer, who went on to admit that - at one point - she had considered punching a friend in the throat because she was flirting with her date. Luckily, another friend intervened and violence was avoided.
And just like days of old, when pranks during the prom were a sure sign of a successful event, there were even streakers.
This reporter, who had attended the event but did not partake in any refreshments, caught sight of two local business owners in the buff - Miller Time, manager of Greasy's Diner, and Joji Bluebird, Owner of the Junk Drawer on 2nd Avenue.
Unable to reach them for questioning, it is difficult to say whether or not they were also under the influence or if they simply took the reenactment of their fearless teenage years too far.
