What We Did Halloween Weekend and What YOU Should Do Tonight
As you can tell from our photos, we’re still pretty wiped from this past weekend’s frightful festivities. But if we didn’t go out on All Hallow’s Eve proper, we’d be some real ’weenies. That’s why you’ll find us at tonight’s Color Me BOO-shwick concert and at the always-packed That’s So 90’s dance party at the The Woods. The I Remember Halloween party is also a safe bet: the light-up floor at JJ’s Hideaway has seen a lot of dancing shoes since it opened a few months ago.
Over in Manhattan, Con Artist Collective is screening horror movies like Bride of Frankenstein, Suspiria, and the cult Ice-T classic Leprechaun In Da Hood. Just a block away, swank new restaurant Canary Club is throwing an Eyes Wide Shut party with live jazz in its basement venue (we’re assuming the password is Fidelio). At the Arlene’s Grocery Halloween ball, bands will be paying terrifying tribute to Iggy and the Stooges, Roxy Music, and Alice Cooper; to top it all off, legendary nightlife host Michael T will celebrate the season of the bitch by performing David Bowie’s Diamond Dogs in its entirety. Finally, those braving possible rain for the Village parade might want to head over to SPiN, on 23rd Street, for the WYLD THINGS afterparty, a blacklit basement affair hosted by marching squads House of Yes and Kostume Kult.
If you’re still throwing together a last-minute costume, find some inspiration in our photo recap of the 12 parties we went to last weekend, starting Saturday evening and ending Sunday with Night of 1,000 Annas, a satirical soirée honoring Anne Nicole Smith.
