Ah, Halloween, the last big party party before we head into the nesting season. I've had some really fun times out at big Halloween parties, most notably Tantra's SoMarts party about two years ago, but this year I've got a wedding at 5PM, and will probably be headed for a house party thereafter. I'm sure that there will be huge to-dos at Ruby Skye, 1015, and all the other usual locales, but here's a select list of things I might check out if I wasn't already occupied.
