Pin-Ups and Hot Rods Save Prom

Get those liberty curls curling and those pompadours pomping. It’s time for the 3rd annual Pin-Ups and Prom Dresses car show, where the machines roar louder than lions, and the ladies roar louder than the machines. Join sponsor 66 Pin-Ups boutique this Saturday and enter the Best Dressed Pin-Up contest for your chance to win the coveted crown and sash. Dance your creepers off to the rockabilly sounds of The Shadow Men while enjoying the gourmet pickings of Conchita’s Creations food truck. And if anyone questions your need for pomade-and-motor-oil-soaked fun, you can remind them that it's all for charity.

Organizers are collecting formal wear for donation to local prom-goers, and you're just doing your social duty (you don't have to mention that giving is so much easier when it’s lodged between pretty ladies and hot rods). So bring your new or gently used prom dresses and suits to El Chante: Casa de Cultura (804 Park SW) on Saturday, March 28, from 4 to 6pm. Free admission, $5 donation to enter car show. For more info, go to the Pin-Ups and Prom Dresses Facebook page, or contact Sarah Florez: El Chante: Casa de Cultura • Sat Mar 28 • 4-6pm • FREE, $5 to enter car show • ALL-AGES! • View on Alibi calendar
