'80s Yuppie Prom at Rue 13, Zombie Rock 'n' Roll Prom at Way Out Club, 5/23/08 

What does one do at that awkward age between high school prom attendance and seeing one's own kids to prom? Go to an adult prom, of course! Those booze-happy, theme-heavy events are popular this time of year and two were held Saturday night in St. Louis. The "Zombie Prom" at the Way Out Club in south St. Louis and the "'80s Yuppie Prom" at Rue 13 downtown drew out dancers looking for spiked punch.

About a dozen people actually wore face-whitening corpse paint, while the rest were content to just act like zombies if not look like them.

Cheers! The least this zombie on the left could do is pretend he wants to eat the brains of his two friends here.

No Zombie makeup whatsoever.

These two lived up the "Zombie Prom" title of the night, complete with the suit coats and corpse paint.

And now we're off to Rue 13 on shiny Washington Avenue. That 80's Club, a weekly theme night, was in full swing about midnight.

This trio was very much into the theme of '80s prom night. Posh.

An '80s-looking couple, though the gentleman insisted he did not dress up for the event. He had just come from a wedding. And this woman to his left? His wife.
