Halloween Spook-tacular and Cinematic Costume Contest

It's never too early to start planning for one of the best times of the year . . . Halloween! You don't have to be a small child to enjoy this spooky, fun, and festive holiday. Like a fine wine, Halloween gets better with age.

We will be in the John Wayne room of Vintage Brewing for our 2013 Halloween Spook-tacular. We will enjoy a private room with cash bar and appetizers. Costumes are encouraged but not required, and of course, we will have a costume contest with fabulous prizes!

If you plan to come in costume, please choose whatever you like. However, if you'd like to participate in the contest, we are paying homage to the silver screen by awarding a prize for:

"Best Costume for a Character from the Movies"

Choose ANY character you want from ANY movie. If you think about it, most Halloween costumes are based on characters found in movies (historical, fact, or fiction). Have fun with it and be as creative as you like. We can hardly wait to see what you all come up with. As per usual, though, please keep all personal anatomy covered--nothing X-rated.

We will post more details as the event draws nearer, but in the meantime, start thinking about your most memorable movies and characters as inspiration for your costumes. Hope to see you at the party on October 31!

This meet-up is also cross posted with Madison Area Single Professionals and Energize Activities meetup groups. Please RSVP only once through one of those groups.

    A special thanks goes to Dan and Nicole for carefully counting the ballots to determine our costume contest winners. You rock! Also, some stellar photos have been posted on Energizers and Single Professionals meetups if you'd like to check them out.

    What a fantastic turnout! Wonderful time, everyone, and thank you again for your enthusiastic participation. Your costumes were excellent and really captured the spirit of the occasion. Congratulations to Terry and Kim for winning the costume contest as the shower scene from "Psycho" and to Sushi Guy for his second place finish.

    It was great to see so many original costumes. This may be my last for awhile - new job is at night and Saturdays .

    I will not be wearing a costume. I may not
    Stay late. If this other thing does not work out
    Drone earlier, I may not be able to come.

    Only one more day to our meetup Halloween Spook-tacular! Can you feel the excitement?!? When you arrive at the Vintage, please head directly to the back area. The hostess can direct you if you need. Also, in order to help pay the event's expenses, a suggested donation of $5 to $10 would be greatly appreciated. Thank you, in advance, for anything you would care to contribute. And as always, thank you for your enthusiastic participation--it will be a wonderful party. Happy Halloween to you all, and see you tomorrow night!

    I thought I'd signed up a while back for this event. I'm planning to make it but will be running at least an hour late because of a farrier appointment.

    I won't be available until much later so I stepped down to open a spot. I will stop later to see everyone's handiwork (and their imagination).

    Hi, folks! Thank you all so much for your interest in the Halloween Spook-tacular at the Vintage. My co-host Lori S. and I are both ecstatic about the turnout and are excited to see your costumes if you choose to dress up. Also, since we have this meetup posted on three sites, we request that you need only RSVP on one site to make room for those popping up on Wait Lists. We want to give as many people as possible a chance to participate. Thanks again for your enthusiasm, and we'll see you at the Vintage on October 31!

      Sorry, I meant to say please dress up in whatever you like! iPhone keypads are touchy. :)

    It would help those on wait lists if those who are in multiple groups only RSVP to ONE group.

    I am sorry to not have the chance to attend an event. I must from the group withdraw due to some family problems at this time.

    Halloween is my absolute favorite holiday. In my younger days I hosted a lot of Halloween parties. I look forward to this get together. Boo!
