Tang’s to the 80’s Prom at Tang & Biscuit

Friday February 15th

7:00 p.m. - Midnight


Who would’ve thought that the city of Richmond is home to the world’s largest indoor shuffle board social club? Not me, but I’m glad it is. Tang & Biscuit is the best place to duel it out with your date on the court. They’re throwing it back to the era of perms and shoulder pads with an 80’s-inspired prom party this Friday. The best dressed at the dance will get cool prizes. There will be games, a photo booth, food and drink specials and delicious cupcakes catered by River City Sweets. Get your 80’s groove on and maybe even fall in love with shuffle boarding this Valentine’s weekend!


Cost: $9.06 for one ticket or $22.24 for two tickets
