1983 Love

Saturday night I helped a friend celebrate her 30th birthday with a 1983-themed bar crawl.  My friend really did her homework, and revealed these fun facts about 1983 to help us get into the spirit with our attire:
SPORTS: A great year for Washington-area sports teams, Orioles win the World Series, and Redskins win the Super Bowl
TOP MOVIES: Flash Dance, Star Wars: Return of the Jedi
U.S. PRESIDENT: Ronald Reagan
FOOD: Mc Donald's introduces the McNugget
TOP HITS: Every Breath You Take, The Police/Billie Jean, Michael Jackson/Let's Dance, David Bowie/All Night Long, Lionel Richie
POPULAR TV SHOWS: Dallas, The A-Team, Magnum P.I.
WOMEN: Sally Ride becomes the first American woman in space
TECHNOLOGY: The computer mouse is invented, Microsoft Word released
POPULAR TOYS: Nintendo, My Little Pony, Cabbage Patch Kids
MISC: Hooters opens first restaurant, "Just Say No" campaign debuts
I did my part by pulling out the most '80s looking clothes I could find (I tried at least - more than I can say for a lot of the other party goers) and donning the obligatory side ponytail, blue eyeshadow, and pink lipstick.  Definitely not my best look and I'm glad that decade is over!
