Huge Number Of Costume Private & Bar Parties Can Be Overwhelming
I don’t often get overwhelmed – especially when it comes to nightlife and parties – but enough already.
I am being bombarded from all corners of the Internet and e-mail about yet another Halloween party. By event promoters -who are relentless marketers, by the way – and PR people representing bars, about Halloween parties.
This is in addition to the free public parties and events I write about – such as the 500,000 person block party in Los Angeles called Carnaval and the Top Party Schools for Halloween – and the world’s top Halloween destinations.
Where I live in Los Angeles, there are something like 20 events happening that people want me to post on PubClub.com. In the small South Bay Beach Cities there are three major promoter events on Halloween weekend alone, and I keep learning of more.
And that’s not even including the various bars, which have bands and costume parties with contests for cash and prizes.
I understand, mind you. Halloween is one of the biggest cash cow events of the nightlife industry. And with Halloween falling during on a weekday, that means there’s opportunities for events on Friday night, Saturday night and Halloween itself.
And then the event is not even dead. Bars have Día de Muertos (Day of the Dead) parties the day after Halloween or, the Sunday after the Friday and Saturday Halloween parties.
With all this, by the time those Halloween parties actually roll around, I’m almost burned out on them.
But once I see hot girls in sexy outfits and have a few drinks, I somehow seem to rally and relish this time of the year. I especially like Halloween house parties. Big promoter events can be a blast, too, because they have so many people at them, from several hundred to a thousand or more people.
A house party can’t match those numbers.
I also appreciate really good and creative costumes. That’s something I’ve never been good at because I don’t really spend a lot of time or effort on a Halloween costume. My “go-to” costume now is an authentic race car driver suit an IndyCar driver friend of mine gave me when he retired.
It stands out because it’s not one of those store-bought suits. It looks like the real deal because it IS the real deal. And I’m always looking for a race queen to stand on the podium with me.
Ahh, Halloween. Despite the advance work it takes me to post on PubClub.com, it’s one of my favorite nightlife and party events of the year.
