Totally Random Things You Know Because You Lived Through the '80's

Would you totally trade in your Gen X status for that of a 30-year-old hipster who wears black-rimmed glasses for statement, not vision? Or would you rather admit that you spent most Saturday nights of your childhood hoping beyond hope that Charo would be the surprise guest on The Love Boat or that somehow, Shari and Lambchop would find themselves in an eerie episode of Fantasy Island where Shari was the puppet? (What? I'm the only one who wished for that story line? I think not!)

You wouldn't know a ton of things about pop culture, big hair or bad TV had you not been a poster child for growing up in the 1980s.

You wouldn't know how incredibly ridiculous and large, I mean gorgeous, your hair could look by spraying your bangs to the ceiling and simply adding an over-sized scrunchie on the top of your head.

Frankly many of you wouldn't have made it through adolescence without "One to Grow On" or "After School Specials." Frankly, without the likes of Mr. T, David Hasselhoff, Kim Fields or Punky Brewster telling you not to steal or cheat or throw up after meals, we're not sure how you would have turned out.

If not growing up in the 80's you'd never have annoyingly used the phrases and terms: "Where's the beef," "Barf me out," "Tubular," "Faced" (as in, "You got faced") or like the word "like" every like other word in like a sentence. (All to your mother's dismay.)

Relive the 80s at Downtown Raleigh's hottest summer event. PNC Downtown Raleigh Movie Series returns this summer on Fridays, May 22, 29, June 5,12,19, & 26. Festivities begin at 6:00 pm and end around 10:30 pm. (Movies begin at dusk, around 8:15 or 8:30 pm) All at Downtown Raleigh's City Plaza, 400 Block of Fayetteville Street.


This summer's theme is a retro #FlashbackFriday, transporting you back to the 80s! For six consecutive Fridays City Plaza will transform into an outdoor cinema center featuring classic films from the 80s on a huge 40 foot by 60 foot screen.

Grab your blanket or lawn chair with your friends and head downtown for a unique outdoor movie experience with DJ music, food trucks, and a beer tent. The event is open to the public and admission is Free.

Dance - (6 PM-8 PM): Before movie showtime, dance and jam out to your favorite 80s tunes from DJ Alex (formerly known as DJ Choice), owner and founder of Vox DJ Company. He'll bring an entertaining style and liveliness to the party, and guarantees a fun and memorable night for all.

Indulge - in the best in-street eats. Select from a variety of local food truck fare between or during the attractions. Food Trucks and Vendors include: American Meltdown, Carolina Popcorn Shoppe, D'Burritos, Dump Pho King Truck, The Freezing Pointe, LaFarm Bread Truck, Manna Concessions, Not Just Icing Cupcakes...And more throughout the season!


Refresh - (6 PM-10 PM): Sip on refreshing beer before and during the movie. 


Relax - Sponsored by Red Hat, chairs will be provided to accommodate movie goers. Due to limited seating, they highly encourage you to bring your own lawn chair. The Movie Series premieres Friday, May 22 with the 1984 sci-fi-fantasy comedy film, Ghostbusters, starring Bill Murray and Dan Aykroyd.

Outdoor Movies, Music & More Summer Events @NCMA

From Fourth of July fireworks shows to outdoor concerts and movies, your summer calendar is swelling with social engagements. Herewith, your go-to guide for what to do during the warm-weather months at NCMA.

North Carolina Museum of Art Announces 2015 Summer Performing Arts Lineup Outdoor concert and movie series beginning May 23. The summer performing arts series currently includes nine concerts, 22 movies, and several family-friendly performances.
Outdoor Concert Series - The concert series begins on May 23 with a performance by Brooklyn-based quartet Lake Street Dive, presented with Cat's Cradle. The band draws on classic soul and R&B, jazz, and British invasion to create an exhilarating brand of pop. The unstoppable joy of their live shows is propelled by knock-your-socks-off vocals (courtesy of Rachael Price) and virtuosic instrumentals.
Seattle-based alt-country singer-songwriter Brandi Carlile makes her first NCMA appearance June 12. In anticipation of Carlile's new album, The Firewatcher's Daughter, a Boston Globe music critic called Carlile "the most arresting female voice in pop this side of Adele." This performance is presented with Cat's Cradle.
On June 17 the NCMA welcomes Grammy-winning guitarist-singer-songwriter Gary Clark Jr. to the stage. Such is Clark's talent that Rolling Stone magazine called him "the Chosen One," and the New York Times suggested that he might be "the next Hendrix." He opened for the Rolling Stones' 50th-anniversary tour at Hyde Park, performed at the White House, and has played all of the major pop-music festivals and popular late-night talk shows. Click Here for complete concert schedule.
Outdoor Movies - The NCMA's outdoor movie season kicks off with a screening of Star Trek Into Darkness on May 30. This year's summer movies include drama and comedy classics, such as Dazed and Confused, 2001: A Space Odyssey, The Sound of Music, Jaws, To Kill a Mockingbird, and The Big Lebowski (part of our Dude Abides Movie Party); 2015 award nominees and winners, such as Selma, The Imitation Game, Birdman, Boyhood, The Theory of Everything, Interstellar, and Pride; and family-friendly movies including Frozen, How to Train Your Dragon 2, and Big Hero 6. Click Here for movie schedules.

The concert and movie schedule is available on NCMA Website. Concerts and movies take place at the Joseph M. Bryan, Jr., Theater in the Museum Park. Doors open 90 minutes before concert and movie start time. Parking is free.

The Beltline Buzz items are selected by our editors.  No one can pay to be featured on
The Beltline Buzz..  That's what advertising is for, and it's always labeled as such.  Selling ourselves (literally) would destroy the legitimacy, integrity, and fun of 
The Beltline Buzz.  Plus, we'd never earn your trust that way.  So we'll never make a dime off your meal at a restaurant nor a penny from the sale of the latest accessory we told you about. 


That said, on occasion, we will send out "Dedicated" e-mails on behalf of sponsors.  You'll recognize them from the subject line: "The Beltline Buzz Dedicated E-mail."  Yes, these are paid for.  And, no, we would never sell our subscriber list to anyone.  Not for any amount of money. 


We hope that you continue to enjoy your Beltline Buzz.  We look forward to delivering it.
