It may just be the nostalgia talking, but the ’90s were quite a time. And with the new Barbie and Super Mario Bros. movies hitting the big screen, there’s no better moment to take a trip down memory lane and experience the golden age of the decade once again.
This weekend, from April 20 to April 23, The Wharf is bringing its Wharf ‘R’ Us – 90’s Museum of Fun to the riverfront.
The four-day event is the ultimate time capsule and will transport you back to the days of flip phones, Gameboys and N-SYNC. You’ll find seven specialty bars that pay homage to all things 90s, including Nickelodeon, Barbie, Super Mario, MTV, Jumanji, LEGO and Candyland.
And the fun doesn’t stop there! Surround yourself in nostalgic bliss while sipping on ’90s-inspired cocktails such as a red cocktail named Mario Sunshine, a yellow one named Koopa Troopa Beach, green with Luigi Smash and pink with — you guessed it — Barbie’s Party Punch.
In true Wharf fashion, there will be Instagrammable photo op moments to capture all the cherished memories from the era, of course!
In addition to the party, the following food and drink specials will take place during the four days:
- Thursday, 4/20 — Beat The Clock Happy Hour from 4 p.m. to 7 p.m. featuring mules, mojitos and margaritas starting at $4 increasing $1 every hour. Buy a Mojito pitcher and get a basket of fries at Knotty Burgers all night long.
- Friday, 4/21 — Riverside Happy Hour from 4 p.m. to 7 p.m. featuring $2 select beer by the bottles + $3 wine by the glass.
- Saturday, 4/22 — Rosé All Day Special featuring $35 bottles of Cotes de Provence Rosé noon to 4 p.m.
- Sunday, 4/23 — Sundays on the River Special featuring $75 bottles of Veuve Clicquot Yellow Label from noon to 4 p.m.
If you’re up in Fort Lauderdale and can’t make it to Miami, don’t fret! The Wharf’s Fort Lauderdale location will be home to the same ’90s celebration, but it will run from April 27 to April 30.
Their specials for the four-day festivities include a Thursday Happy Hour with $5 Tito’s cocktails from 4 to 7 p.m., Beat The Clock Happy Hour from 4 to 7 p.m. on Friday, Rosé All Day featuring $35 bottles of Cotes de Provence Rosé noon to 4 p.m. on Saturday, and Sundays on the River featuring $75 bottles of Perrier- Jouët Brut from noon to 4 p.m.
