Break out the leg warmers, Spandex and white-washed denim — school’s back in session. Bayside High School, that is.
On July 24, revisit the awesomely bad kids’ show, “Saved by the Bell,” when the seriously inspired party, “Saved by the Bell House,” comes to, yes, the Bell House.
“Since we opened, we’ve wanted to incorporate ‘Saved by the Bell,’ since our name is the Bell House,” said Heather D, director of events at the Gowanus space. “We also did an 1980s prom last year, and wanted to do another, but thought the generic ’80s prom theme was overplayed.”
So instead, come dressed as Zack, Kelly, Lisa, Jesse or Slater (but please, no Screeches), or how typical teens styled themselves during both the 1980s and ’90s — the bigger the hair, the better.
“I’m hoping to see some ’80s brick cellphones,” said Heather.
The Bell House is doing its part, too, as the venue will be decorated like a high school gymnasium decked out in the school’s colors, and a DJ will spin ’80s and ’90s dance music. There will even be a live set from The Bayside Tigers, a ’90s cover band.
If you’re lucky, they’ll even play “I’m So Excited.”
Saved by the Bell House at the Bell House [149 Seventh St. between Second and Third avenues in Gowanus, (718) 643-6510], July 24 at 8 pm. Tickets $15. For info, visit www.thebel
