Tucked in the back of Scottsdale steakhouse Roaring Forks, the group mingled in the dim restaurant just minutes away from their prom's location.

Among the sounds of chiming glasses and the hustle of silverware by a nearby waiter, Cook and Quian sat at the end of the long table talking with friends about what time they want to arrive to their dance.

"I think they let people in at 8:30," said senior Sami Kassab, cutting his steak.

Naturally, the group wanted to be fashionably late, making plans to arrive after doors open.

With after-graduation plans and expectations for college looming, the guys started talking about the perrils of wearing multi-piece tuxedos

Cufflinks being one of them.

"They were too loose," said Quian, showing Kassob his sleeve. "That's why I just didn't wear them."
