Halloween Party Treats to Drink and Eat

I love Halloween. Dressing up and pretending you are someone else is just so fun!

I used to work for an ad agency in Dallas where everyone dressed up at work on Halloween and we all went to a pizza place called Campisi's Egyptian Pizza on Mockingbird Lane for lunch. It was a big deal to dress up and then all drive to this crazy pizza place (that was rumored to have Mafia ties.) I don't think it really did. It was in Dallas after all. However, I just learned from checking their website, that Jack Ruby, who killed Lee Harvey Oswald, dined there on the eve of the Kennedy assassination. interesting....

Anyhow, one year (1995 I think) I dressed up like Dracula. I was really proud of my cape and outfit - but everyone thought I was Eddy Munster. NO! Oh well. I guess I did kind of look like little Eddy - but he didn't have a cape! See?

The funniest costume that year was worn by our copywriter, Eric. He dressed up like ME! He wore a pink suit, pantyhose, heels, a wig and a big band-aid on his forehead. (I had recently had a mole removed from the middle of my forehead and had to wear a band-aid for a few days.) IT WAS FRICKIN' HILARIOUS. I almost died laughing. People were worried I would be mad. NO WAY. It was awesome! I wish I could find a picture to show you. Just imagine a horrible suit from the 80's with huge shoulder pads, gross pantyhose, big Texas hair......too funny.

Elli and I recently found this old picture from about 1993 I think. Don and I went to Santa Barbara to visit my sister and her then boyfriend (now husband) Mike. We didn't have costumes. So we made up our faces and went to State Street to hit some bars and scare people. It was a blast.

Don, me, Kathy and Mike - woaaaahhhhh!

I don't have any halloween costume ideas for ya'. But I did find some yummy treats on some websites that I thought I would pass along. So here you go.
