Break out your Members Only jacket and valet the Delorean. The Stratosphere is taking Vegas back to the ’80s.
The hotel-casino announced it will host a “Totally ’80s Weekend Party” Sept. 13 and 14 in honor of the decade that brought you shoulder pads and phrases like “totally rad.”
Expect a resort-wide time warp, as employees and guests will be decked out in '80s apparel and the tunes of artists such as Cyndi Lauper and Tears for Fears will play throughout the property.
The inspiration behind the Stratosphere’s blast from the past? Nostalgia.
“Many of us have fond memories from the '80s,” said General Manager Paul Hobson. “The decade evokes great music, movies and celebrities...It’s the soundtrack from a fun and enjoyable time in our lives.”
Festivities will include free screenings of period movies such as “Ghostbusters” and “Back to the Future,” movie trivia with '80s memorabilia prizes and karaoke.
You can even recall classically cheesy drink commercials of the era with beverage specials such as Seagram’s wine coolers, Amaretto sours, fuzzy navels and Jagermeister shots — all for the '80s-friendly price of $3.
Other events include a Madonna concert ticket giveaway and gaming tournaments.
