Studio 200 on Island: Totally 80’s Birthday Bash

November 10, 2018 | 6-11pm

Called the best decade by some, not only did the 80s bring us MTV, big hair, legwarmers and over-the-top catch phrases, it was the decade our nonprofit children’s museum opened! We’re celebrating 35 years in San Diego and 10 years as The New Children’s Museum downtown – two totally epic milestones that deserve a rockin’ party.

Back for its second year, our Studio 200 gala will be the coolest club in town as we host our Totally 80s Birthday Bash! We’re taking our multi-level contemporary space back to the future with the best of the ‘80s music, dancing, fashion, icons and awesomeness.
