Adam and Khelan are doing it again. The Breakfast Club Remix Dance Party is on again at The Duplex Diner, this Friday, November 30, from 9 pm to 2 am.  Travel back in time and enjoy all that ’80s music with this Dance Party.

“Being bad feels pretty good, huh?”

The boys say: “You don’t need to bring your mixtapes of recorded songs from the radio; we will be playing more new wave, synthpop, one-hit wonders and 80’s hits (and remixes) than your average John Hughes movie soundtrack.”

The Duplex Diner, will be serving outrageous drink specials, including $3 champagne drinks and $7 Orange Squeezes. All for NO COVER!

If you want to check if your friends are going look here. And unlike the film’s stars, you don’t have to sit through morning detention to experience the party.
