Halloween Party Guide

Artvoice Halloween Issue

At Artvoice, we miss trick-or-treating just as much as any nostalgic adult (Reese’s cups, please). Yet we can’t help but revel in the thought of a dangerously delicious Halloween night party where the treats come on the rocks and the tricks involve a different kind of bite. Navigating your way through the many party options may be daunting, but this list should shed some light on your best bets for dancing in the dark, picking your poison, and howling at the moon.
