Avengers assemble… your prom attire! Captain Marvel has arrived and Avengers: Endgame is upon us, so we’re celebrating with a BAM! POW! BANG! at the skint’s Superhero Prom!

On Friday, April 26, avenge the fallen with a Hulk-sized blowout featuring DJ Empanadamn spinning power anthems so good that you couldn’t even blame Thanos for snapping along.

Come dressed as your favorite super hero or villain (or invent your own) and strike a power pose on our red carpet, photo booth, and runway show. Alter-egos/secret identities welcome! Prizes will be awarded for best outfit, best duo, best hero/villain combo, and best origin story.

And so we can all be heroes, a portion of ticket sales will benefit Big Brothers Big Sisters of New York City.

So suit up, get ready to sip on our Stark-engineered drink specials, and we’ll see you on the 26th! Get your tickets now.
