What can I say – I’m a Coolio fan! Though I gotta be honest, I can’t believe there is such a thing as a 90s party. I must be getting old…

From a press release:

DC celebrity-favorite Eden will be throwing their monthly 90’s themed soiree on Saturday, March 31st with special host rap legend Artis Leon Ivey Jr. aka. Coolio. Most famous for his song “Gangsta’s Paradise” from the film Dangerous Minds, the 90’s headliner will be mingling with Eden partygoers decked out in flannels, jean jackets, Dr. Martens and other gear from the famous decade.

This March, Washingtonians will be taken on Coolio’s “fantastic voyage” to the magical last decade of the 20th century. Club-goers are encouraged to dress in 90’s apparel, so the usual dress code at Eden will be lifted for one magical night. Eden is located at 1716 I Street NW Washington, D.C. For table or reservation, visit www.edendc.com or call 202.403.4343. Doors open at 10pm and the event is ages 21+.

      Many a college memory attached to that song! Back when I used to be a party dj…

  • I think I always dress in 90s apparel. Pavement, Sebadoh, or Jets to Brazil tshirts and jeans.

    Wow, that’s… lame.

    FYI: There is indeed a 90s dance party in DC called “The Peach Pit” (90210 reference, of course) which features DJ Matt Bailer (of Mixtape DC). I’m pretty sure there are others too.

    What I would like to see is a 90s indie night, slanted towards the likes of Liz Phair, Poe, etc…that would be cool.
