Grand Time Warp Ball
11:00p - 1:00a
The sonic transducer allowed the Transylvanians to infiltrate our world, but what if they used it to project themselves not just through space, but TIME ITSELF!!! The possibilities are endless!!! Egyptian Pharaoh Frank? French aristocrat Columbia? Glistening Greek God Rocky? BUT WAIT... screwing with time can even create alternate time lines!!! Victorian steam biker Eddie? America where the Confederacy won the Civil War Riff Raff? (Hold on... that might not be the best idea... scratch that one.) No pressure, you can always show up dressed like yourself from the timeline where they are still properly called (and spelled!) the Berenstein Bears. The party will be DJ’ed by Keither of the RKO Army.
