Halloween party in Oakland!
Last year we hosted a Metafilter Halloween party, and we though, what the hell, we could do this again. We have tons of space, a patio, and are generally okay people. We're just under a mile from 2 different Bart stations, and have plenty of parking.

If you need an excuse to wear a costume, here you go! If you don't want to wear a costume, we won't judge! Bring something to drink or eat and we'll make it a party!

UPDATE- We are apt 404. To buzz in you need to press #15 on the intercom.

Costume party?! YES!

I'm planning my attire already.

Need a costume for a 1 year old and parents. We were thinking of doing Total Recall's Kuato, but Mrs. Dream wasn't so interested in being the three-breasted prostitute.

Sweet, yes!

Now to plan a costume...

radioamy : you're in the Bay area now? I thought you were NOLA.

If so, then welcome!

Oh, this looks good. Maybe I'll attend with the new haircut MostlyMartha and Rtha hooked me up with.

Sad Face! I will be out in Texas watching my close friend get married.

Remember to post the pictures so I can attend vicariously!

You should all know that I used this party as an excuse to buy the most ridiculous catsuit of all time, so now you have to come.

Oh yes AB we moved back earlier this summer! Turns out, conveniently, that radiofiance and chattongriffes have been good friends since hs!

I happen to be in town for work on the 27th so I thought what the hell...

I'm at least 10% tempted to throw together a simple costume. Where are good places in SF to pick up cheap costume bits and pieces (while jet lagged)?

We could all just bring Erberus one random costume item. You'd end up with a scarf and a tiara and an eyepatch and a pair of fairy wings and you'd be...a pirate princess? This actually sounds entertaining....

I would go for a crowd-sourced costume like that.

radioamy : that's great news! I'll have to try and make it to another meetup at some point.

Hi! I can't make it ot the party, sadly, but:

On that VERY SAME DAY, at 3 in the afternoon, I'm doing a reading at the Fireside Lounge in Alameda. I think I'm the second person in the lineup, and as far as I know I'll be the only one reading fiction rather than poetry.

Anyone who's thinking about showing up: choose a word, any word, and I promise to work it into my story.

Second to last person in the lineup, actually, so it's looking more like 5:30.

Thanks so much for hosting this, Nimmie Amee! What can we bring? I suspect wzcx and I will be bringing beverages of some kind. Do you still need nibbles?
posted by chatongriffes at 3:29 PM on October 23, 2012

Anything in particular we can bring? I feel lame already that we're not going to be in costume, but it just didn't happen this year.
posted by radioamy at 4:57 PM on October 23, 2012

Food and/or drinks are most welcome!
posted by Nimmie Amee at 10:11 AM on October 24, 2012

We will be providing a gin punch, because we hear a lot of Mefites like gin.

Updated with our apt # and the info on how to buzz in.
