You could go to the meet up with some friends, fight the crowds at the annual East Village Halloween Parade and drink in a bar while re-wearing the same questionable mermaid costume you accidentally flashed your co-worker in last year, OR you could switch it up by attending any number of all night ragers that fabulous New York City has to offer.
