Halloween's twin dilemmas -- what to wear/where to go -- are generally solved by repeating last year's itinerary: buy a ticket to a boring bar party, then glue a parrot to your shoulder. Up your holiday ante, with ABSOLUT 100's Prohibition Bash.
Showcasing ABSOLUT's new, darkly sophisticated super-premium vodka, this swinging pagan-fest'll resurrect the illicit frivolity of the Roaring '20s -- when gangsters were folk heroes, and yelling "applesauce!" and "horsefeathers!" was salacious enough to hush the bawdiest juice joint. The easy-speaking fete will feature all the era's staples, e.g., Big Band jazz, casino tables, and, most importantly, trays of ABSOLUT 100-fueled cocktails borne by tuxed-up waiters. Dress code dictates fedoras and pinstriped suits, the same outfit your great-grandfather would've worn, if he weren't busy cobbling shoes in the back of a Ludlow Street pickle factory.
The event's being held at Les Deux, making space extremely limited -- so RSVP immediately or risk skulking around some overcrowded snoozer, searching for bar pretzels to placate your squawking bird.
