When Prince told us he'd be partying like it was 1999, he probably figured he'd get a few good years out of the song. And yet, 36 years after his single was first released back in 1982 — and nearing two decades since the year in question passed — we're all still following in his footsteps.
At The Elephant's second annual All '90s All Nighter on Saturday, July 22, the venue will be doing the purple one proud; however, that's not all it's doing.

Wear something made out of flannelette. Stick some butterfly clips in your hair. Sure, it's winter, but a slip dress would definitely fit in here. There'll be prizes for best '90s wardrobe, and you'll be wanting to give the DJs prizes for cranking out some retro hits. The drinks will also be '90s-themed, and entry is free.
