In a monster mashup of epic proportions, Buffalo’s scary-party-throwing veterans OLD FRIENDS, NEW FACES team up with our very own buffaBLOG for one of the city’s favorite Halloween parties.

The 21+ event promises an evening of fun, food, dance, and drink, and with free beer (included in the ticket price) flowing til 2am, the drink part is a definite yes. Held at the  haunted Hamlin House, the event is the perfect blend of house party and spooky scary atmosphere.

Playing two sets, Buffalo’s own “Tied to the 90s” cover band Soul Patch will be providing the soundtrack for the party, along with a DJ set from Spooky Stephen, one half of the appropriately named Spooky Business.

Pre-sale tickets are no longer available, so get yours at the door for $20. Doors are at 10, and while costumes aren’t required, there is a costume contest. Suggestion: don’t be that guy. Yes, your Ebola victim costume is super topical and probably waterproof in case you spill some of that free beer on yourself, but no one wants to see it. This also applies to ANYTHING Robin Williams related. Save your suspenders for next year, or pay homage to the man who named his daughter Zelda by going as the princess or her savior, Link.
