For the majority of my high school years I was under the impression I was too cool for prom, but I broke down senior year and decided “what the heck? I’ll go and see what all the fuss is about.” Well as it turned out, for my school’s prom anyways, the fuss was completely unwarranted. I thought it was going to be a night of just me and my fellow students getting into a big room and dancing the night away to a at least decent DJ while sipping punch and chowing down on hors d’oeuvres. What I got was lame Vegas themed evening where the place where you played fake black jack and roulette was bigger than the room where the dance floor was, the DJ wasn’t even decent and everyone seemed like they were already ready to be somewhere else as soon as they got there, pretty underwhelming.
The fact that my prom was not near the magical night I expected it to be makes me extra excited for the second annual Prom Squared event. Seriously, even if you did have an awesome prom experience when you were in high school, this one will be awesome-er! How can I make such a claim? Well first of this prom is a party for a cause that will be helping support Promise House and their ongoing efforts to ”move teens in crisis to safety and success.” Plus you can ditch the old gymnasium decorated in streamers cliche, this prom will be taking place at the historic Kessler Theater. Bolsa Restaurant will be catering the event with their nom-worthy selections and this time no lame DJ! Actually no DJ at all at this prom, instead you get a live prom band in the form of Dallas’s own rising star and funky R&B front man Larry g(EE) and his band.
