Halloween in NYC comes more than once a year. Last night, we lived enough Hallween's for five years, however, I suppose tonight is the REAL date to celebrate for many. But how to sift through the dozens of invites exploding in your inbox? I'll highlight some of the more important parties tonight:
Halloween at Rose Bar: STRICTLY INVITE ONLY! Last night was just a teaser of the fun that is to be had tonight at Rose Bar in the Gramercy Hotel. Presented by Nur Khan, Scott Lipps and Jessica Hart, Damien at the front is going to make sure that it's going to be one of the hardest doors of the night. You better be dressed the part.
Heidi Klum's Annual Party at 1Oak: STRICTLY INVITE ONLY! Heidi and her husband Seal have consistently wowed us with their Halloween parties, and costume picks. This will, as always, be one of the hottest costume parties.
Heroes and Villian's night by Milk Studios: STRICTLY INVITE ONLY! Hosted by Mazdack Rassi, Ben Pundole, and our favorite Ben Watts. You know when Mr. Watts is involved, the party will be rocking!
Amy Saaco's Halloween at Bungalow 8: STRICTLY INVITE ONLY! You can try getting passed Disco, but it will be tough, at the infamous party that Amy throws for her personal friends each year, the names in attendance are consistently big.
Halloween At Soho Grand: We have some GofG'ers attending this party and can't wait to hear about how it turns out. Along with the Bowery Hotel, it is one of the more laid back, under radar parties to attend.
Halloween at Southside: INVITE ONLY! Hosted by Nicole Trunfio and Alexandra Richards. Last year's Bella's hosted one heck of a Halloween party and this one is shaping up to be even grander in the newly opened Southside. If you wow Q at the door, you may have a chance getting in to dance the night away with Anthony, James and the rest of the Martignetti crew.
Halloween At Lucky Strike Lanes: Noah Tepperberg and Danny A are presenting the Halloween Night Masquerade at the newly opened bowling lounge on 42nd street. With music by Sky Nellor and Mr. Mauricio you better be dressed to impress if you plan on striking out with the Strategic Group.
