From CH Listserv:

I just got an update on the Halloween event at Trolley Turnaround Park (11th and Monroe).

I heard from the organizer who said:
“It’s going to be Saturday the 31st at 4:30 in the park. If you’re free and would like to join us, please come in costume. We’ll do a parade around the block and then a costume contest.”

Night of the Living Derby Ghouls…Roller Derby HALLOWEEN Afternoon!


What? You don’t already know about the fastest, baddest and absolutely BEST fastest growing sport in the nation? But surely you’ve seen Whip It, the first movie out about the modern day roller derby revival?

Who cares what you know or what you’ve seen: you’ve GOTTA check out all women’s flat track ROLLER DERBY at the DC Armory THIS SATURDAY on Halloween afternoon!

Scary zombies on wheels racing around the track is only part of the fun. Come watch the freaky Fright Attendants of Scare Force One take on the Cherry Blossom Bombshells in some good ole knock down drag out derby. Bring the kids before trick or treating, it’s fun and games for the whole family on Halloween afternoon.

We’ve got a costume contest for fans, beer for the grownups, treats for tots and kids under 6 get in free!

Halloween Afternoon!
DC Armory

Doors at 3pm, bout at 4

I’ll be judging costumes at midnight for this party at Social (14th and Meridian).

“Specials on Jagermeister and Rogue “Dead Guy” Ale, all night!! Costume Contest with spectacular prizes at Midnight. You have an extra hour to party, because you can always sleep when you’re dead!”


“Just wanted to let you know what’s up with Nouveau Riche this Saturday at DC9… should be a great time!

– We did a “Halloween Rave” two years ago and that was the first Nouveau Riche party that was really packed and insane, so we’re excited to do it again

– This party is a great deal for people on a budget — no cover from 9-10pm and there’s free (original!) Sparks and free 42 Below Vodka drinks

– We’re going to be playing classic rave music all night… jungle, acid, happy hardcore, etc etc etc

– Baltimore’s video artist Mark Brown (of Wham City) is coming down to do live VJing all night, plus he’s going to drop a DJ set. Check his website, he’s awesome

– It’s a costume party”


The Looking Glass Lounge’s (3634 Georgia Avenue, NW) Halloween Costume Contest hosted by Magic Mushroom Alice! $50 bar tab to the best male and female costume to be announced at 11:30pm.

Drink the night away with $5 Jim Beam and Natti-Boh combos….
