Nostalgic memories of skinny eyebrows and tattoo choker necklaces will flood the McNay as the museum hosts its '90s Throwback Night: Grunge or Glam.

As part of the ongoing exhibit Fashion Nirvana: Runway to Everyday, the event will celebrate all the weird, wacky and posh looks of '90s fashion. With the recent return of the grungy-era fashion in department stores, the McNay encourages you to wear your best goth, glam or grunge clothing items to commemorate a decade full of funky sandals and long hair.

"As if" listening and dancing to '90s music isn't a throwback enough, there will also be movies on display, easy-to-learn video choreography, a trivia match and a runway walk-off. Maybe it's time to dust off the old flannel or plaid skirt hidden at the back of your closet.

$10-$20, 6:30 p.m. Thursday, February 27, McNay Art Museum, 6000 N. New Braunfels Ave., (210) 824-5368,
