There's no way I'll get all tarty and dress up as a "sexy" whatever (kitten/nurse/devil/bumblebee etc.). But we love Halloween and want to celebrate it with adults, as well as the trick-or-treaters. Last year we dropped in on a party at the coolest apartment on Main Street in Bethlehem.
I just heard about a WDIY fundraiser at Allentown Brew Works called "One Ale of a Night" on Halloween, and it sounds fun: Guests are encouraged to come dressed as their favorite forest deity or nature spirit (though costumes are optional). $70/person.
The American Lung Association is hosting a party called Thriller at Masquerade at the Holiday Inn Conference Center in Fogelsville on November 13. Since the costume stores will slash prices after October 31, they might be on to something. Tickets are $125 and there's only one hour of open bar (cash bar after), so go early.
* If you are thinking about taking your kids trick-or-treating in a neighborhood other than your own, prepare to get funny looks.
