Time travel tips

Oh, the '80s.

Madonna. Mix tapes. Top Gun. Shoulder pads. Big hair. Ferris Bueller. Prince and The Revolution (pre-weird symbol). The DeLorean. Smurfs.

If you were too young or too dweeby to take it to the max back then, some small part of you wishes you could turn back time and find a way to relive that decadent decade. This is your ticket.

From food and clothes to cartoons and concerts, this is the recipe for an everything-'80s weekend. Take these tips straight-up or put your own spin on them -- just don't get too wrapped up.

"We can't actually become the '80s," said TV personality Mo Rocca, who appeared on VH1's I Love the 80s and I Love the 80s Strikes Back. "We have to maintain some sort of distance so that we can actually believe that we live in a better world."
