This year, the usual suspects go to bat with some of the biggest Halloween parties of the year.
Tonight, West Hollywood’s Santa Monica Boulevard is hosting the largest street party in the world. Half a million (yes, you heard that right!) of gays will descend onto the block for the most insane costume party we’ve scene. Check out the official site for a listing of bars hosting events.
In San Francisco, the seventh annual GhostShip Asylum party will erupt tonight and November 1, from 9pm-4am, a small-slice of Burning Man-esque costumes, installations, dancing, and craziness for one of the biggest parties of the year. Located at Pier 70, Building 12 at 22nd Street and Illinois, the event is not yet sold out and tickets run from $50 to $120.
In New York, Whoopi Goldberg will be the host of tonight’s 41st annual Village Halloween party. Expect the village to shut down while thousands of ghouls and ghosts (and probably a few slutty nurses!) take over. The theme this year, “The Garden of Earthly Deaths,” will run along Sixth Avenue beginning at 7pm.
For you southern boys, NOLA may just be the granddaddy of all Halloween parties, with Voodoo parades, boozefests along Frenchmen Street and even a cool “Boo at the Zoo” exhibit inside Audobon Zoo.
