  • An added (awesome) touch, type the names into the 80s food name plates (included with mystery) and display alongside your dishes!

• You serve your puch in a traditional punch bowl or choose to fancy it up and serve it in a juice fountain for your party!

• For an adult party, you can have "spike your own punch" bottles sitting beside the punch bowl in lieu of serving a mixed cocktail.

• To make it a little "eerie" fill a latext glove with water and freeze it. When it is time for the party, remove the latex glove and have the hand float as an ice cube in the bowl.

Here are a few of the different types of music poular in the eighties!

80's Pop Rock- From the first lyrics of "Video Killed the Radio Star", the advent of music videos on MTV in the 80's radically changed the music industry forever. Early eighties groups such as DEVO and Haircut 100 were early adopters of the medium, but pop stars such as Madonna and Michael Jackson later transformed the format into a huge business.

80's Heavy Metal- In the mid to late 80's Heavy Metal became the popular music genre. Artists such as Van Halen, Poison, Motley Crue, Cinderella, Quiet Riot and Guns and Roses got extensive 1980's radio airplay. "Hair Metal Bands", as they are affectionately called, scored top charting hits with the "power ballad" song formula. Nothing represents the decadence of the 80s more than the heavy metal bands signed from the LA Strip during that time. The song lyrics mostly embodied the "Sex, Drugs and Rock and Roll" mentality of the 80's.

House Roots In The 80's- The Hip Hop scene has it's roots in the 1980's and becomes a powerful musical and dance influence. Hip hop artists like Grandmaster Flash Kurtis Blow and N.W.A. bring Hip Hop to the forefront.

80's Hardcore Punk Movement- Out of opposition to the pop music of the 80's evolved the Hardcore Punk movement. This angry, politically charged genre included more social awareness in it's lyrics. The Dead Kennedys, Black Flag and Reagan Youth are popular bands of the 80s Harcore Punk scene.
