MetroLink Prom This Friday Night

It started last year as a joke. Two devoted MetroLink fans -- Liz Kramer and Claire Nowak-Boyd -- wanted to do something special to show their support for Proposition M, the ballot measure that would provide the light-rail system with tens of million of dollars in additional funding.

Their idea? A party aboard MetroLink. But not just any party. A prom!

The soiree attracted some 80 folks clad in their best formal wear and ruffles. This year the prom committee (Kramer, Nowak-Boyd and co-conspirators) are banking on an even bigger turnout.

Yes, Prop. M may have suffered an ignoble death last November. But the prom? She lives on. Hell, they even have officials at Metro endorsing the party this year with the transit agency chipping in swag to award the prom king and queen.

That's right, the prom includes a coronation party, dancing, portraits and music. All the details after the jump.

Who: Anyone (formal wear strongly encouraged)
What: MetroLink Prom
When: Friday, October 23
Where: Arrive at Forest Park-DeBaliviere Station by 7:30 p.m
Why: Why not?
Cost: Bring a few bucks for MetroLink fare

The prom will head west on MetroLink around 7:30 p.m. and disembark briefly at the Clayton station for dancing and a king & queen vote. From there it's back on the train where the party heads east to the Laclede Station stop and portraits. Those who want to keep partying will then head to Morgan Street Brewery.
