WHY 115 BOURBON STREET’S ANNUAL HALLOWEEN BASH IS “MUST SEE TWC”.
Saturday night. Be very afraid.
I’ve lost track of how many years we’ve played this party but I know a Bush was President. I’ve seen a metric ton of halloween parties and I can’t think of any annual Halloween party that holds a creepy candelabra to this one. The clocks also fall back an hour, so buckle up party people, cuz we have an extra hour to make sure every wheel comes off.
This blog is mostly for people who have either never been to 115 Bourbon Street on Halloween or never been to Bourbon at all. For starters, the place is plenty bigger than Nicki Minaj’s ass. I’m pretty sure back in the day it used to be a Handy Andy. There is so much shit going on it’s almost hard to get your bearings straight, especially if you’re mainlining liquor, like E V E R Y person there does.
And I’m not even talking about their halloween party yet. That’s just the average weekend night at Bourbon. So about the party…The most important thing you need to know is don’t show up at 10:00 thinking you’ll moonwalk right in. People down south take this shit seriously so get there early. If you get stuck in the line, just remind yourself there’s NOTHING else going on within black cat swinging distance. It’s worth it. Mix some distilled love into a Big Gulp cup to keep you busy. Because that’s what everyone else will be doing. Besides, the line is almost as entertaining as what’s going on inside…provided it’s not raining, snowing, sleeting or some other bullshit that tends to fall from the Chicago sky this time of year.
Bourbon goes all out for this party and so do the 2000+ people (check out the costumes!) hoping to win the trip for two to Mexico or one of the phat cash runner up prizes ($1000 for 2nd, $500 for 3rd, $100 gift cards for 4th & 5th and $50 gift cards for 6th-10th places). The costumes range from original to lame, hysterical to insensitive, smokin’ hot to “wow you really shouldn’t wear that”. You will see it all. Here’s a video preview.
Too White Crew will be in the big room, performing up until the costume contest starts, then DJ Shawn Edwards takes over. Dick Diamond and the Dusters will be on front stage and Suburban Cowboys will be in the Fireball Saloon. All other acts are hallucinations.
AND it’s on a SATURDAY this year? This one’s gonna leave a Marky Mark.
