After choosing a costume and deciding what kinds of sweets to hand out to trick-or-treaters (no raisins, please, or you’re asking for your house to get toilet-papered), adults have to decide where they’ll go to party during the witching hour. The number of options available for Halloween can be downright terrifying.
You can count on nearly every bar and club in metro Detroit to have walls covered in fake spiderwebs and dance floors filled with zombie brides and Johnny Depp look-alikes, but picking just one event is like asking kids to select just one kind of candy from their trick-or-treat stashes.
To help make this Halloweekend a little more spooktacular, we’ve broken down Halloween parties by category. Looking to win some cash or prizes for your Black Swan costume? We’ve got you covered. If it’s live music you’re into, we’ve got that, too. Here and on Pages 20-23, you’ll find our picks (plus an alternative choice) in eight categories.
There are lots of parties and options, so start planning now. Remember agonizing with your childhood friends over the best neighborhoods for trick-or-treaters? This will be just as tough.
