Embrace your nerdiness
When you arrive, you’ll get a packet about your character’s identity. But be sure to bone up on Buffy facts and witty banter beforehand, so you can dominate the trivia smackdown: Winners will score Sunnydale-related prizes (along with the requisite admiration and envy), and one lucky alum will also be presented with the “Class Protector” award.
Party like it’s 1999
Expect to shake it to classic Britney Spears, the Spice Girls as well as the various Bronze-friendly artists who soundtracked various episodes (like Cibo Matto and Fatboy Slim). Character-based costumes and end-of-the-century attire aren’t required, but they’ll certainly come in handy during the Buffy-oke contest.
Remember the dearly departed
Event organizer Clinton McClung compiled an Oscars-style video that pays tribute to Sunnydalers who met their demise at the hands/jaws/pincers of the Hellmouth’s various demons and dangers. But don’t lob too many insults—you never know who might be ready to rise again and invite you to join their killer after-party.
WELCOME BACK TO THE HELLMOUTH!: The Sunnydale High School Class of 1999 Ten Year Reunion: Galapagos Art Space, 16 Main St at Water St, Dumbo, Brooklyn (718-222-8500, buffysings.com). Wednesday 3 at 8pm, $10.
