The Snow Ball // Cafe // 5-9pm – The BMA brings you its own version of the highly anticipated annual Holiday dance at Hawkins Middle School with the one and only DJ Dolly throwing an assortment of 80’s classics into the mix. Be sure to preserve your holiday memories through a polaroid! 

Hellfire Club // Member’s Room // 5-9pm – Step foot in the Dungeons and Dragons-oriented society of Hawkins High led by Birmingham’s own Mark Owens in lieu of Eddie Munson’s unfortunate absence. Embark on a journey alongside fellow dungeon masters to gather the skills you’ll need in case you encounter Vecna. 

E.T. The Extra-Terrestrial // Auditorium // 5-9pm – Much like how Mike found Eleven in Season 1 and his subsequent attempts to disguise her, we pay homage to this reference. Grab a seat in the auditorium and watch this classic beloved tale of a lost alien.

Palace Arcade // Cafe // 5-9pm – Even though Dustin’s high scores were eventually topped by Mad Max, it shouldn’t discourage you from giving your best shot! Join the fun with the BMA’s own version of the Hawkins local arcade by playing your choice of Pac-Man, Galaga or Mad Max’s personal favorite, Dig Dug

Mindflayer & Hellfire Club Cocktails // Bar // 5-9pm *While Supplies Last* – Local mixologist Allie Phifer made it back from the upside down with some complimentary cocktails to keep you from going code red for the evening. While available, visit the bar to try a signature Mindflayer (coffee and raspberry old fashioned) or Hellfire Club (spiced cranberry margarita). 

Stranger Things-Inspired Holiday Ornaments // Main Lobby // 5-9pm – Get ready for some holiday Hawkins fun by making your own ornaments! Whether you are channeling your inner Joyce attempting to communicate with Will or planning to give the gift of Demorgorgan this Holiday season, we’ve got you covered.360 Upside Down Photo-Booth Experience // Main Lobby // 5-9pm – Place your feet on the platform to take a trip into the upside down with your most daring group of friends. Capture the action with a Stranger Things-inspired slow motion video that immediately shares to your smartphone for all of your social-sharing needs.
