Okay, it's now officially 2 days before Halloween and you don't even know what you're going to BE yet, let alone what you are going to do. You've been keeping your plans loose, right? Just in case something really amazing comes up? Some really cute boy proposes and you need to spend that night kayaking romantically in the moonlight? Well, sorry buddy, that's not happening. What IS happening is the night of the year in the city of your dreams. So put on your zombie make-up and hit up one of these parties. What better way to meet your true love than at a costume party when he is dressed as a sexy lampshade? There's always next year for a moonlight marriage proposal...
