A Night in West Egg

WHO: EVERYBODY OF ALL AGES
WHERE: The Xavier Institute
WHEN: The night of June 16th, all night!
WARNINGS: Who can really tell anymore? Probable language. Possible violence. Copious dancing.
SUMMARY: PROM PROM PROM PROM PROM PROM PROM
FORMAT: OPEN

The guests into an auditorium transformed. Through the magic of papier mache, the room has been decked out like a speakeasy, the refreshments laid out on a very makeshift bar that will not stock alcohol as long as they can prevent it. The whole room is cast with a cool blue light, and a jazz band's been hired to take the stage for an hour before leaving the rest of the evening to the DJ.

It was time to get this party started.

[HANK PLS GO]

McCoy, my prime partying years happened to fall during the Great Depression.

I'm understandably rusty.

Can't, I'm afraid. Far too preoccupied with killjoy duties.

[yep still standing within eyesight of the punch bowl and the dance floor tbh]

Though you'll be happy to know I cut loose every now and again and hassle some dancers.

I doubt the Charleston would turn heads in the age of... that.

[GESTURES AT SOMEBODY DOING THE BERNIE...]

No matter how impressive my Charleston is.

[Peter's had three or four cups of "non-alcoholic" punch by now, so he's a wee bit more outgoing than usual.]

Hey, nice threads! Looks like you stepped right out of The Untouchables.

A man needs to have an image, after all. Something to set him apart from the endless throngs of superheroic wannabes.

And I was never a fan of spandex.

[a beat.]

Nemesis. And you are?

Peter Parker. And boy, after an introduction like that, I've never felt boringer. [He doesn't really seem to mind.]

So, what, are you saying you dress like this all the time? Or is it a period variant of your usual style?
