So Many Parties, So Little Time
Halloween is quickly approaching, which means one thing: where’s the party? Whether you are a couple who wants to win best matching costumes or a single who wants to find a fun hook up using a cheesy pick up line, no one wants to stay at home for Halloween if they have the choice.
So if you are in a relationship, drag your, partner to a party and they will not be sorry as people aw at your costume craft. If you are single, call up your friends and have the best night of hilarious flirting. When else can you ask someone to rub your magic lamp and not be totally judged?
Although Halloween isn’t for another week, tickets to parties are already on sale and you don’t want to risk them selling out. Why worry so much about your costume if you aren’t going to show it off. Strut your stuff whether its with your boo thing or besties. Every adult should know that Halloween isn’t just for kids. Halloween is better than ever before because we still like candy, but now we also like candy-flavored cocktails. Can you say UV Candy Corn Cocktail? Yumm!
