OHH Presents: Haunted Hotel Dance Party

  • Oct 26, 2013 · 8:00 PM
  • This location is shown only to members


SORRY: THE HAUNTED HOTEL DANCE PARTY IS SOLD OUT.

Have a wonderful Halloween weekend. I Hope to see you next year. Please do not come to the door if you are not already paid. You will not be on the guest list. Please do not send money we are at capacity.



                                 OHH Presents:

                    The Haunted Hotel Dance Party

Calling all you creatures of the night. It is with terrifying excitement that I announce Oakland Happy Hour's 2013 Halloween party. As the few survivors from previous years might tell you, our Halloween parties have always been horrifyingly epic! If you are brave enough to attend and lucky enough to survive the night you will experience:

·  Befriending wondrously strange new people,

·  Dancing to a professional DJ,

·  Sampling the horrifying h'orderves,

·  Seeing creative and creepy costumes,

·  Ingesting cocktail concoctions at the no-host bar,

·  Posing for photos against your will, and

·  Seeing unnatural, zombie-like, freakish dance moves.

Come and join us as we drink and dance beyond the witching hour and into the evil part of the night. There will again be a best costume contest and a few other scary surprises during the night if it pleases the resident ghosts.

The Haunted Washington Inn is a refurbished boutique hotel located in eerie Oldtown Oakland and in its walls dwell unsettled spirits who seek entertainment from the living. It is said that the only way to keep these specters from getting angry is to dance for them and show them a good time, so that is exactly what we’re going to do. This haunted hotel is scarey conveniently located one block from the 12th street BART station on 10th street and is also on the Free B line. In addition, it is also very close to several of my favorite neighborhood haunts if you need pre-party restaurant suggestions.

    It was so great to see all you fine folks in costumes last night. I had an absolute blast especially hiding behind that mask. Halloween should be a week long of partying.

    Did anyone find a black glove after or during the party? I lost one. It is part of a vintage pair that belonged to my grandmother. :(

    Great! Great 80's music dancing and fantastic costumes. You should have seen the looks on the faces of the people checking into the hotel as they walked through the lobby.

    2 · October 27, 2013

    • Dan

      I think that "chick magnet" costume takes the humor prize :)

      October 27, 2013

    • Nico

      Ahsan's chick magnet and Fred as that Chris Farley SNL "I live in a van down by the river" costume!

      October 27, 2013

    I had a great night. Thank you to everyone for coming out. As our very first paid event this was very much a learning experience for me. FYI: OHH will continue to remain free to join for another year.

  • Sanjay

    I'm super excited about tonight. Rick and I have been working really hard to make this one of the best Halloween events in the Bay Area. I can't wait to see all your ghouls coming out and dancing the night away with OHH. There will be a lot of treats and maybe some tricks thrown in (wink). See you all tonight.

    4 · October 26, 2013

  • Matt

    How do we get our tickets for the haunted house event?

    October 25, 2013

    • Rick

      email me the name that you used to register and I will double check.

  • Nico

    I'm so excited!!!

    1 · October 25, 2013

  • Cathy

    I thought we could pay at the door. Is that not an option anymore? Is it a possibility that some people won't show up?

    October 25, 2013

    • Rick

      i am sorry Cathy i have tried to be very explicit there will be no paying at the door. Even if there was room left, there is no paying at the door. Please do not try this it will only cause trouble for the group with the hotel.

      3 · October 25, 2013

  • Matt

    How is payment for the haunted house done?

    October 24, 2013

    • Rick

      Hit the "pay now" button next to the price up above the description and it will walk you through it.

      October 24, 2013

  • Johnny B

    Hey Ricardo,

    A friend wants to come with, how do I add a guest after I already paid for me?

    1 · October 24, 2013

  • Lew

    Hi Rick, Is this a private event just for OOH?

    October 23, 2013

    • Rick

      Yes this is a private event for OHH members and our guests. It is not open to the public and people will not be able to come in from off the street and join us. Also there is limited space so at some point (100 people paid) this event will be closed. Great question! Thanks.

      October 23, 2013

  • Sonja

    Evilly Delicious Bakery will be providing some treats for the tricksters.

    October 23, 2013

  • Rick

    For you Cash people, I will be accepting cash at Merchants on 10/23 (Fire Dance and a Happy Hour) if anyone wants to pay for the Haunted Hotel party in cash or even check...just an option. I would rather people pay thru PayPal but if this works for you, OK. THERE WILL BE NO MONEY TAKEN AT THE DOOR THE NIGHT OF THE EVENT everyone must pay in advance....rules if the hotel.

  • Natalie M

    Where is the link to pay????

    October 22, 2013

    • Alyssa

      There should be a little box that says "pay now" toward the top of the page.

      1 · October 22, 2013

      What Alyssa just said.

    uh oh, if BART is still not running it could be a really spooky problem. Rick, can you please talk to the union and negotiate a solution? You're pretty good at making things work out for our group.

    1 · October 20, 2013

    • Rick

      Done.

    2 · October 20, 2013

    • Rick

      Saying costumes optional is like saying having a good time is optional. I am wearing a costume too.

      October 21, 2013

    • Rick

      It's easy! The first time you have to set up an account. but basically you just send money to an email address. your bank may have a similar program.

      October 21, 2013

  • Monique B.

    Hi, I am trying to get my own ticket. A friend is coming to town so I need to see if he wants to go as well or not. It's almost there!

  • James

    Rick...
    Hit the Halloween store...tons of ideas you can work with even if you don't use the costumes there as originally intended. Even zombie outfits! lol

    1 · October 18, 2013

  • Rick

    I need costume ideas. Any ideas?

    1 · October 16, 2013

  • Monique B.

    That sounds like a lot of fun :)

    October 12, 2013

    • Rick

      Will you be a zombie again? You did such a good job with the make-up on Saturday night.

      October 14, 2013

    • Monique B.

      Haha! Yes! I like being a Zombie. It's fast and easy! Everyone did a great job! It really looked like someone was hitting you with a baseball bat. It was a great job!
