With Halloween falling on a weekend this year, everything is amped up around town. Which means you need to
start planning. Here's our list of the best events in the city.
True Beach Blood Party at the Catalina
This early-in-the-week vampire garden party includes a contest for the sexiest vampire (you'll win a
two-night stay), complimentary cocktails from 9 to 10pm and gratis food all night—think pumpkin
ravioli and the unfortunately named Hallo-weenies.
On this most debauched of holidays, why not enjoy the evening the same way Hef does: discussing current
events with bunny-eared Playboy models while sipping cocktails from an open bar (between 9 and 11).
The folks from Supermarket Creative are taking a page out of the Dirk Diggler playbook for this
'70s-porn-industry-themed event. What this means for you is an excuse to wear gold chains and polyester
suits while refueling at the open bar all night long.
Boozing at the Raleigh Penthouse
This Prohibition-themed soiree offers you the chance to mingle with sexy flappers and Coco Chanel
look-alikes on the deco hotel's top floor. Admission gets you one free cocktail…as for the rest of
the night, let's just say a silver flask would be a good prop.
Attack of the Full Moon
It seems almost too creepy that Halloween should fall on a full moon night, but there you have it. Check
into the Ritz's outdoor party wearing your werewolf best and enjoy a few $7 cocktails with your oceanfront
views of the moon. Howling encouraged.
