Nightlife: Halloween Weekend
Remember when you thought you’d outgrown Halloween? That first year you didn’t dress up. Why would you? Trick-or-treating is for babies. Then sometime between getting a driver’s license and moving out on your own you were introduced to this whole new side. It became one of your favorite holidays. Well, not really the holiday. It became one of your favorite weekends. So much to do, so little inhibitions. And maybe you’ve outgrown that as well. But for those of you who haven’t, or even those who are just looking for normal, costume-less weekend plans, I’m here to offer a few suggestions.
For starters, there’s two pretty big shows coming to Tampa. On Friday, the 27th, Santana is playing at the Amalie Arena downtown. The following Saturday, the 28th, Kings of Leon will be at the MidFlorida Credit Union Amphitheater at the Florida State Fairgrounds. I wonder if the next sponsor can make that name any longer.
But if you’re looking to dress up and get real weird, it seems all you need to do is pick a bar. There are countless Halloween parties and pub crawls all over the bay this weekend, from Howard Avenue to Ybor City to downtown St. Pete. I would compile them all for you right here, but I don’t think I’d finish until after Halloween had passed. And I’m only given so many words.
I’ll be back soon with more posts giving a closer look at specific events and staples of Tampa food and nightlife, but first I felt the need to tackle Halloween. And for those of you out of town this weekend, maybe visiting New York, check out this link for some ideas. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KBCUz0Ugdzc
