Update 6/19/15: Congrats to Carrie on being the randomly selected winner of two tickets to Somerville Local First’s Back to the Future Prom! Thanks to all who entered, and remember, there’s still time to buy tickets before next Friday’s event.
After time traveling to the 1980s and ’90s the last two years, Somerville Local First is throwing it WAY back to the 1950s for its Third Annual Prom this summer. And I’ve got your chance to win two tickets to go Back to the Future on Friday, June 26 at Cuisine en Locale!
Have you ever wanted a prom do-over? This is your chance to have it your way. Dress in your finest (or funniest) 1950s outfit, bring who you really want to slow dance with and best of all? You can drink without getting in trouble.
Cuisine en Locale (156 Highland Ave.) is creating a special Somerville Local First-themed cocktail as part of the cash bar that will be open during the prom. And you can get the after-party going when you enter a raffle for booze donated by Somerville-based beverage distributor M.S. Walker.
You’ll want to don your best ’50s threads because Somerville Local First will be giving out killer prizes to the most creative costumes and crowning the winners the Most Spirited Somervillians. Whether you’re more of a greaser or a poodle-skirt-wearing sock hopper, come dressed to impress because the competition is going to be fierce!
Remember those heinous prom pictures you promptly hid in your closet? Well, you’ll have a chance to snap some better shots at Somerville Local First’s prom. Step into the amazing photo booth complete with ’50s-themed props to capture all of your favorite memories from Back to the Future.
One of Boston’s best DJs, Nathanael Bluhm AKA Begbick, will be spinning both ’50s classics and modern-day tunes for you to boogie down to all night long at the prom, which is also a fundraiser for Somerville Local First, a nonprofit that encourages a diverse economy that is local, sustainable and fair.
Tickets are only $25 in advance for a night you’ll never forget–but we’ve got a chance for one lucky reader to win two tickets to prom.
Win two tickets to Somerville Local First’s Back to the Future ’50s prom. Leave a comment on this post telling us your favorite thing about summer in Somerville.
