Plans for Halloween night? Hmm...
Still undecided about where toss back drinks and gorge on candy? The Brooklyn Bitches recommend celebrating anywhere except your living room couch- you get one day a year to go out, dressed crazy, and act a fool. Why waste the evening staying in? Plus, if you park your ass at home, you're obligated to provide for the stampedes of trick-or-treaters who are sure to be banging down your door. And that just means you'll have to buy candy that you don't even get to consume... so go out!
If you're not sure what your evening's agenda is looking like, don't throw in the towel just yet. Due to an overwhelming response, we've decided to share some of the stops we'll be making on All Hallows Eve.
Here's where you'll find us:
Halloween Dirt-Deth Rally
Where: 261 Moore St, Brooklyn
How Much: Free with RSVP
Why: It's a tiny dirt bike race, where participants throw little pumpkins at each other. Live music, jerk chicken, strippers, and it's free. Duh.
Haunted Forest and House at Inwood Park
Where: Inwood Hill Park, 218th St and Indian Rd
How Much: FREE!
Why: Although we might not make it to Inwood, we wish we could be enjoying free pizza, drinks, and candy in the only natural forest left in Manhattan. If you happen to be in the area (last stop on the A train), check it out- we hear Dracula, Frankenstein, and the Mummy will all be stopping by to say hello.
Village Halloween Party
Starting at 7p, this legendary parade welcomes all those in costume to march with puppets, superheros, monsters, musicians, and dancers from all over. All those wishing to participate must show up at 6th Ave, South of Spring St between 6:30p and 8:30p. Get a good spot for the action anywhere between Spring St and 23rd St, along 6th Ave.
True Blood Halloween Party and Costume Contest
Where: Hope Lounge (110 Hope St, Williamsburg)
How Much: No cover!
Why: Our bestie, Sean, will be spinning all night so the vampires and ghosts can work it out on the dance floor. Not a fan of the show? Doesn't matter. Here's to making new friends of the night.
Tribeca Grand Halloween
Where: Tribeca Grand (2 6th Ave)
How Much: Free!
Why: If we were fancy ladies, we would celebrate holidays at hotels all the time. With a Svedka open bar and two levels or live performances, it'll certainly be a night to remember.
Holla Ween 3!
Where: Le Poisson Rouge (158 Bleecker St)
How Much: Free!
Why: We have a load of friends who will be causing all sorts of tricks at this Village bar, with free admission and live performances and DJ sets from The Crooked Disco DJs, DJ Morsy and DJ Kestar.
And even though it's not exactly a dance party, we have full intentions to stop by at Taco Bell and Chipotle locations throughout the city. A special Halloween promotion allows free "boo-ritos" at any Chipotle if you come dressed as any of their menu options (aluminum foil, anyone?), and Taco Bells in New York City are distributing free Black Jack tacos after 6p.
Stop by and say hello! And if you happen to have a few extra Reese's PB cups, you might gain yourself two new blondie best friends.
Love, The Brooklyn Bitches
