Halloween 2017 Plans

What is everyone doing this year? Are you dressing up? Are your kids?

Halloween weekend was probably the best weekend for parties/bars in college, but it has been a very long time since I've dressed up and went out drinking. The last time was probably at Crckrjack's board-game costume party, and I don't even remember if we went to the bars with him. I assume Wags/Erin and Corey/Megatron will do something exciting since they are more hip than all of us.

We did pumpkin patch a couple days ago. I'm guessing Indianola has their Halloween thing over the next weekend. We will do "Beggars' Night" on Monday in our neighborhood and at grandparents'. I think the local college also does a night of indoor trick-or-treating in the dorms. Evie will be dressed as a flying unicorn princess.

Since Halloween is a Tuesday, we are kind of being party poopers this year. I work at the brewery Tuesday nights and Erin works late on Tuesdays so we probably won't hand out candy unless Fran can figure it out in a week. I assume this Saturday is the big "party" night for Halloween, but we haven't really made any plans to go out. I don't think we've dressed up the last 2 years, for sure not last year.

It was always funny in college when Halloween wasnt on a weekend and people didn't know when to dress up. What if Halloween is a Thursday? You can't dress up that Friday because it's too late.

There is the parade thing like we did last year. Janelle will be gone, but I'm still going if you have nothing better to do.

We have the option to dress up at work and also there is supposed to be office trick or treating. Not sure if I will or not.

We have that option as well for work, but I won't be dressing up.

Wilkins, is the stuff on Saturday? What time? We might be in Ames, but I heard the weather might be bad this weekend regardless

I'm teaching a "Barre and Brews" class at Excelsior Brewing this Sat morning! I still need to finalize a costume that's not too challenging to teach and move around in. I may do "baller-ina" (basketball jersey + tutu) since I won't have to buy anything.

Erin actually lives at a yoga studio but it's down the street from a brewery so sometimes they have class there.

Because beer and yoga are such a classic pairing.

We have a neighborhood "Halloween parade" on Saturday. Not sure exactly what that is. We we're supposed to go to a party later Saturday night but Sarah's brother cancelled on babysitting since he forgot it was Halloween

Austin Powers Masks a Hot Halloween Item, Thanks to 'Baby Driver'
Apparently, the idea of going to parties as one of confused robbers is a hot ticket item as the Austin Powers masks have sold out on costume sites and are not available on Amazon or eBay.

"I'm very proud. I feel like through my career, I have given people some very easy Halloween costumes, like Shaun in Shaun of the Dead," Wright tells THR. "I even mentioned to Warner Bros. [which released Austin Powers under New Line Cinema] that they may ship a lot of masks at Halloween, and I think that's exactly what's happened."
