It was a packed house at the Terminal City Club on Saturday, as Veuve Clicquot and JetSet Crew threw their annual Yelloween party. The sold-out event drew in hundreds of costumed partygoers who came out to see and be seen at one of the city’s busiest Halloween parties (in large part due to the PR work of The Promotion People).
The venue was decked out head-to-toe in all things Halloween, and accented with colorful lighting. A film production crew had been hired to handle all of the decorations and lights, which clearly paid off – the room had plenty of atmosphere. Music-wise, DJ Swete and DJ Leanne took to the tables playing a solid mix of house, electronic, top 40 and some classics. The dance floor area was packed for the better part of the night, as were the lineups for the two bars that were serving up Belvedere cocktails and glasses of Clicquot.
I love Halloween, and it’s always great to see so many people put so much effort (and creativity) into their costumes. There were actually very few duplicate costumes in the room this year, which made for some great people watching. Although there were literally dozens of amazing costumes, a few standouts (for me) included the Jamaican bobsled team, Karl Lagerfeld (cat and all), a Yeti, a scotch-sipping Ron Burgundy, a couple who came dressed as a fork and a knife and a snake-haired Medusa.
According to this year’s sales figures, the most popular costumes of 2013 included Walter White of ‘Breaking Bad’, the minions from ‘Despicable Me’, foxes in general (both men and women – in large part due to the Ylvis song), and, to nobody’s surprise, the Miley/Robin Thicke costume combo (I only recall seeing one Walter White, a couple of foxes and one Robin Thicke (he was sans Miley.. so maybe he was actually just dressed as a Foot Locker manager?))
