I know what she’s thinking about. She’s asking herself, “Should I add a headband to this ensemble before heading out to Polyester Wesdnesdays at Tattoo??”  Tomorrow marks the first night of 80s night glory, starting at 10 p.m. Check out these ace perks: Open bar for the ladies 10-11 p.m., comp admission on the RSVP until 11, some boss 80s themed party favors and, of course, video DJ-ing.

My only question is, what’s the over-under on how long it takes for this party to get Rick-Rolled? I give it 37 minutes. 

FYI: Tattoo “does not discriminate against Spandex, braided headbands, bustiers, popped collars, banana hair clips, jelly shoes, Jordache Jeans, jelly bracelets, big hairclip bows, boyfriend blazers or leg warmers!” That’s good, because I’m planning to wear all of those at once. I’m totally amped.

Acacia has lived in DC since graduating from Vassar College with degrees in English and Italian. She cries daily at the thought of her imminent departure from this beloved city, as she will begin a Fulbright teaching grant in the Campania region, Italy come October. She’ll be blogging that experience too. Get at her: acaciaO@welovedc.com or follow her on twitter.
