The final Sunnydale High School Reunion was held at Galapagos in Brooklyn on Wednesday night (part 1 here) and I'm not exaggerating when I tell you this space was so much like the Bronze. The dark lighting, the balcony and the 90's music almost made me wonder if Angel was skulking in the shadows somewhere (I wish).
The night's great fun included "Bloody Mary" drink specials, trivia, the awesome Buffy Season 1-3 movie trailers, "Buffyoke", and the biggest surprise of the night - The Buffy "Once More with Feeling" Sing-along! That's right folks, the 200-plus in attendance were given the gift of the musical. Even cooler, our very own Bitsy graced the stage as Spike, blond hair and all. It was very surreal and ironic. There were the usual "Shut up, Dawn" moments, but the funniest part was when the actress playing Dawn came out towards the end of the episode wearing Michelle's "Buffy Loves Angel" t-shirt. That got a few in the crowd fired up.
There were some great prizes given out, too. One special guest recieved a real Class Protector award made by our lovely Tara (which was especially hilarious given it was a dude who now owns a pink and gold sparkly umbrella). Another group recieved a gift bag filled with Buffy books, comics and other goodies. All in all, a fun Buffy-filled night.
Here's a video showing some highlights of the night. They showed the fantastic fan-made Buffy trailers of the first 3 seasons, you know the ones. You'll also see below a clip of the "Buffyoke", Trivia winners, and of course, our very own Bits - doin' the Spuffy.
