Halloween in SoBe - 2009

Greetings to Those in the Know…

I am so excited!!! Wifey and I just made travel arrangements that allow us to wear our Halloween Costumes this year in SoBe. We were in SoBe last year for Halloween and had a blast! The creativity and originality of the costumes last year was unmatched to any we’ve seen elsewhere and am sure will be true this year as well. Timing for both last year and this year is perfect as Halloween is on a weekend night!

Last year, we walked Lincoln Road which was packed! Being part of the display, as well as watching the other great costumes was a lot of fun.

I read that some clubs have a costume party the night before Halloween… which this year also falls on a weekend night!

My questions are:

1) Has anyone heard of any costume parties the night before Halloween someone can recommend?

2) What about Halloween night? Are there any noteworthy costume parties on Halloween in the event we choose to do something different from walking Lincoln Road Mall?

Thank you in advance!

SBF

Not sure your trip dates, but the parties start the weekend PRIOR to Halloween night (Saturday the 31 of October) with costume contests, big name DJs and so much to do you may need an entire wardrobe of costumes for your trip.

Checking online, there's a week's worth of info for you here:

Lincoln Road is just really crowded with people of all ages walking up and down in costume. There are 2 gay bars - Score and Halo where the tendency is toward drag queens and sexy attire. If you just want to watch, you can find a seat at Euclid circle. Some people reserve sidewalk tables at the cafes and/or descend on the cheaper pizza and ice cream shops. If you want to score a table - arrive EARLY.

Zeke's is great but gets crowded early. With $4 prices for over 200 beers, the locals seem to grab a spot and hold on tight! Definitely get there before dark...

There is a party at the Hard Rock Hotel and Casino being held on Friday October 30th by Y100. It is supposed to be great. It's a free party and the first drink is free. ENJOY!
