Halloween Party and Costume Contest

TICKETS STILL AVAILABLE AT NERD FUN's Meetup SITE!

 

Since last year's Halloween party was such a huge success, the Sci-fi/Fantasy Meetup is throwing another big bash this year! We'll have food, music, dancing, games, decorations and a costume contest with cash prizes. Admission is $25 per person to cover the cost of the event. We sold out last year, so don't wait to the last minute to RSVP!

 

Costume contest: First place is $100, second place is $75, third place is $50, so come in costume and be prepared to compete! There is no "theme" for the party or the contest, so let your imagination run wild.

Food: Food is being catered by Putterham Grille & Catering from Chestnut Hill. We'll have a spread of appetizers including Cheese, Fruit, Veggies and Dip, and Chips and Salsa. The dinner menu will consist of a choice of four hot Italian entrees (Cheese Lasagna w/Meat Sauce, Vegetarian Lasagna, and Chicken with Mushroom and Alfredo Sauce (Gluten-Free)), served buffet style with Garden Salad and Hot Rolls. Oh, of course, we'll have desserts and Halloween Candy.

Drinks: A full cash bar will be on site, and their drinks are cheap! Pricing last year was $2.00 for water/soda/juice, $3.75 for most domestic beers and wine, $4.25 to $4.75 for single liquor drinks and imported beers, $5.50 for two liquor drinks.

Location: The Dilboy VFW is located a short walking distance from the Davis Square T stop, but it also has a private parking lot that we will be able to use (it is surrounded by a chain-link fence, is well lit, and there are clear signs to lead you to it). Please note that the front entrance to the VFW will not be accessible for this event, so you must enter at the back (where the parking lot is). We'll have signs outside in case you get lost.

Last but not least, while we have to charge a cost for this party, we've tried very hard to keep costs as low as possible. No one is making any money off this event, all of the money we collect is going into making this party a fantastic night to remember and meetup costs. (Since I know people will ask if it is possible to not pre-pay and pay in person on the night of the party, the answer is no, unless we have not sold out, and we'll announce that change if it happens before the event.)

I hope to see you there!

      Thanks! afraid I can't make it after all though.

    Slight update to the menu - there will be vegetarian eggplant parmesean instead of vegetarian lasagna. We got catering through the same restaurant at work a few weeks ago and the eggplant parmesean was literally* one of the best things I have ever eaten, and the guests at our event agreed. Hopefully the party-goers will appreciate it just as much!

    *I am normally against the overuse of the word "literally" but in all seriousness, I can't stop thinking about how delicious it was, and can't think of anything I have eaten that compares. So, it is not lightly that I choose to use this word! And, if you don't like the food, you can blame me for the eggplant parmesean being on the menu.

    • Josh

      Hi Emily, I talked to the caterers and got a vegan entree added to our order :-)

      See you Saturday!

      Fantastic! Thank you! Looking forward to it.

    This could be me this year. It has that sci-fi twist to it, after all.

      That could be me the morning after, if the party's really that good :-)

    If we signed up for set up/decorations, what time should we be there? 5? 6?

    October 20, 2012

    • Robyn

      Hi Caitlin, I plan to be there by 3:30. You can come whenever you can after that :)

      October 22, 2012

  • Robyn

    The food has been ordered, decorations are being made, music list being perfected... things are all lines up for an awesome party next week :)

    Ok is it the Cutter Ave. side we have to enter? I would like to enter it correctly on my GPS because it's a very busy area and it's not too easy to make u-turns there. I wanted to go by train again but there are redline advisories ALL of October, including that nigh:(

    October 14, 2012

    • Robyn

      The entrance to the parking lot and the entrance to the building is on Summer Street :)

    I know, I have to figure out my costume, too. Nerd Fun is always welcome! There is a lot of cross-over between our two groups; I'm sure they will be represented :)

  • Caitlin Marie Rose W.

    Last year was so fun! I should start planning my costume soon. As much as I love my traditional Bavarian dress, I've worn it for two Halloweens in a row already. Time for a change.
