Halloween parties/costume contests?

great pumpkin charlie brown stillChristine emails:

My partner and I are wondering if you've gotten word of any hip, non 20-year-old slutty-version of Halloween costume contests and/or parties (charitable or otherwise) in the Albany area? Any help is greatly appreciated!

There's usually a Halloween party at the Washington Park Lakehouse, though we haven't seen any details about that this year (if you know what's up, please share).

Have a suggestion or idea for Christine? Please share!

Update: Details about this year's Washington Park Lakehouse Halloween party floated our way after we posted this question. The party is October 26 from 9 pm-1 am. Tickets are $25 ahead, $50 at the door -- advance tickets available at the Pearl Street Pub and the Barrel Saloon. The party is open bar (as well as 21+) and "costumes mandatory."

Last year I won some cash over at Footsie Magoos in downtown Troy... and no, I wasn't dressed up as a slut. They will most likely have live music again this year- that's where I'll be! Always a ton of fun there (and they have Skeeball and Pacman!)

There's a Halloween Bash at Vapor Night Club on Saturday the 26th. Vapor is usually a little older crowd so I expect the same for Halloween. I've also been looking for news on the lake house event with nothing found :(

Just found this, although there is a prize for "sexiest" so not sure if it fits in with your criteria.

If you feel like making the drive up to Saratoga, Javier's (Maple Ave) is having a costume party on October 26. I don't know if there is any charity affiliation, but it'll be a HECK of a party and definitely a more, um, astute crowd.

Although I think the city is best served by having the state decommission and demolish this section of highway, if it is to be, then a couple things to consider. First, a big challenge is integrating the trail with Broadway along the exit ramp that feeds B'way from 787.The second is covering the cost of maintenance, not only of the linear park, but of the framework holding it aloft. ...
