iving room look like The Max by drawing zigzags on the wall and stacking empty Arrowhead bottles to look like glass bricks. Sumptuous food must be placed around, but by no means must anyone actually eat it, just like on the show. Make a drink called a Squeaky Clean Sanchez in honor of Slater’s original last name, which was revealed in an episode after the producers realized that it was okay to admit that they had a Latino in the cast.

Provide a heaping bowl of white crosses (speed) in a nod to Jessie’s brief addiction to caffeine pills (I'm so excited!). Decorate your hall closet to look like a locker and stuff dweebs or out-of-hand jocks into it if they get out of hand. 
Now for entertainment. Dustin Diamond, aka Screech, was gracious enough to make a sex tape called Saved By The Smell, so pop that baby in and drink to forget. From there you can move on to the homoerotic “Screech’s Woman,” where Zach goes in drag to try and trick Screech into thinking a woman is actually interested in him. Screech gets his revenge on “Aloha Slater” when he dresses up like a pineapple princess with pineapple boobs. “No Hope With Dope” shines a light on the horrors of marijuana, so pass the bong. If Molly is more your thing, skip to The College Years and play “The Rave.”

The night wouldn’t be complete without the ultimate cautionary tale for the partying set, “Drinking and Driving” from Season 4. Hey hey hey hey! What is going on here?!

But really, we'll be watching, check back here on Tuesday for our review of this (likely) Emmy-worthy TV movie.

    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
