Be an Event Wornette

We have thrown some truly great parties. Karaoke cry fests, decade dances, and gala fundraisers, not to mention balls where everyone comes dressed like a cat. We love to celebrate with our readership and community, but all this play isn’t without a little elbow grease behind the scenes. We do our best to cook up something special for every WORN event, and now we need another crafty event wornette to donate his or her own special spice to our upcoming launch parties and fundraisers.

Here is how you can become our new event wornette.

Dust off Your Dancing Flipflops

WORN Wants You To Sing Your Heart Out

Was it the son of a preacher man? A devil in a blue dress? You obviously didn’t listen—but now everyone else will.

On Tuesday, February 14th, 2012, WORN Fashion Journal will get your achey-breakey heart in front of a karaoke machine at SUPERMARKET (268 Augusta Avenue).

Don’t just feel the pain, spread it around.

We’ve got a karaoke machine, a microphone, sad, sad, sad songs, and enough bitter tears and sweet liquor to fill a swimming pool. What else could you possibly need to mourn your latest romantic folly?

All proceeds go to the production of WORN Fashion Journal. This year, Heartbreak Karaoke will fund the rent for our new office! We can’t make a magazine without a roof over our heads. Support independent publishing, and sing us a sad song!

$7 Admission
$5 Admission if you’re wearing red or pink
Each song is $1
Jump the line for $10
Celine Dion songs are $5

268 Augusta Avenue
Bring on the heartbreak: 9:00 PM
You don’t have to go home but you can’t stay here: 2 AM

Your heart on your sleeve: mandatory
