This post is for the ladies that are over the crowded bars, long bathroom lines with “sexy <enter any profession here> girls” and drunk Ferris Buellers spilling their pumpkin beer on you.
Halloween is (and will always be) one of my favorite holidays – a close second to Thanksgiving. But when it falls on a Monday, it’s a bit of a buzz kill. So to save us all from a regretful, hungover-tainted Tuesday, I’m recommending a ghouls night in…
Entertainment – Break out the board games and Taboo to keep you busy between answering the door for trick-or-treaters. If board games aren’t really your thing, this G&J drinking game is just as entertaining. Note: instead of “shots” we’re taking “sips” because, 1. we’re old and 2. we don’t want to be hungover Tuesday, remember?
Snacks – Did I say snacks? I meant to say candy. Because October 31st is the only acceptable day to consume more candy than one grown woman should. Splurge, buy the good stuff and have a wide variety because if you can’t switch from chocolate to fruity to caramel to sour chews to chocolate then you’re doing it wrong! Don’t worry about your caloric intake, you’ll go to spin tomorrow and get back on track. 😉
Libations – The plus side of staying in is getting to be your own bartender. For your GNI, set up a “cocktail lab,” replacing carafes with beakers and have your guests mix up their own concoction. This blackberry sage margarita is dark, delicious and perfectly festive. Another option would be to host a beer + candy pairing, every kidult’s dream combination.
