It must be something about everybody being in costume that makes Halloween so much fun for people of all ages.  All the masks being worn must give people a sense anonymity and courage.  On November 1st you can always say, “Hey, it was Halloween and it wasn’t my fault, my '2006 Borat Sling Thong Swimsuit' costume inspired me to do it,” and your friends will generally agree (provided you kept your shenanigans to a misdemeanor).”

I decided to be a pal and take the heat off of you (literally in this case), by heading out to a local watering hole and finding out what their best Halloween drink is.  Adrian’s is a place with a great neighborhood atmosphere.  What’s fun about it is the different mix of people that make up its clientele.  If you're looking for someplace to spend your Halloween at, stop by and enjoy their party under the tent and enter the costume contest while you're at it.

I stopped by on a busy Thursday night when Adrian's has live music and the bartender, Spencer was nice enough to grant my special request by making a “Goblet of Fire” (I think she was hoping I’d burn my eyebrows off, but no such luck this time).  I’d suggest calling a cab for a ride home after having this spirit.
