Kids arenít the only ones who have fun on Halloween. This is the only time of year youíre allowed to dress as scaryóor as sexyóas you want. Itís also a fun way to enjoy a night out together by transforming yourselves into completely different people, just for one night.

Picking the perfect Halloween party to show off your costumes isnít easyóthese days it seems everyone throws a spooky bash. Whether youíre hitting a house party or visiting your favorite downtown haunt, here are some tips for choosing the best place to party on Halloween night.

Halloween House Party
Not all parties are created equal. Some hosts like to throw outrageous get-togethers, complete with DJs, dancing and fully stocked bars, while others like to take a simpler approach. Pick the party youíll both feel most comfortable.

* If getting crazy is on your agenda, go for the all-night rager. Plan ahead by taking a taxi or assigning a designated driver; your his-and-hers plug and socket costume wonít be as amusing when youíre sitting in jail.

* If you prefer sipping your beverage from real glassware rather than plastic cups, go with the more mellow party. Visiting with friends is always more fun when glitter and wigs are involved.

* If you each want to attend different parties, compromise by spending half the night at one friendís house, and the other half at a different party. And thereís always next yearópromise to spend next Halloween at the party you didnít attend this year.

Halloween Bar Celebration
Adults love dressing up just as much as the little guys, and business owners know that. Lots of bars and clubs throw Halloween-themed events to attract trick-or-drinkers.

* Some establishments celebrate early (like the weekend before) and some celebrate on Halloween night. Call ahead so youíre not the only couple in the bar sporting wigs and face makeup.

* Pick a costume thatís not too bulky. You wonít make many friends by hitting them in the face with your wings or knocking their drink over with one of your eight spider legs.

* Avoid masks or heavy costumes in super crowded bars. Youíll quickly become too hot and sweaty to have any fun.

Whatever you choose to do, make the most of the night and have fun. Remember: The couple that plays together, stays together.
