We had ours in one of the best spots… under the glow of the Space Needle at The Pacific Science Center’s Dinosaur Room. It was really neat to have the party and dance floor next to these big animatronic moving dinosaurs. Members really pulled out all the stops and went wild with their costumes. We had all sorts of ghosts and ghouls and creatures of all kinds, both sexy and scary costumes. Freddy Krueger won scariest costume. Funniest costume was this squirrel guy and another person won for her costume of a huge Hershey’s Kiss! I had on a Cop uniform and many members thought I was a real cop went they first walked in. “I’m just here to Serve & Protect” J
I’m shocked that the next morning we had 19 members signed up for a hike up by Hoodsport (the Cooper Creek Trail). I guess you just can’t stop our members. But I must admit it looks like it was a good hike.
We also did our Dark & Mysterious Wine tasting yesterday and that was a fun event. The owners of this great wine shop open up their shop for a private tasting just for E&A, they put out meats and cheeses and other delights for pairing with the wines. It’s informative but it’s also very social and the owners give us a discount on any bottles in the house when we are done ….I must admit I ended up buying a bottle to take home for the holidays.

One of our favorite events is themed Pub Crawls so we decided to dress up on Friday for a little fun before our big Halloween Party. About 40 of us hit Washington Avenue in full costume and we made a splash. We started with a free beer party at Blue Moose and end up doing the Monster Mash at Taps. Saturday night though was the main event! 90 of the single best people of Houston gathered at the E&A clubhouse for dancing, crystal ball reading, photobooth, food, drinks, blackjack & prizes. We had a dance off for Backstreet Boys tickets & the 8 foot tall Sasquatch won the big costume contest taking home 2 tickets to see Zedd & a ticket to our annual NYE bash!

Imagine walking into a room, full of dressed up fellow E&A members, whether it is your first event or your fiftieth… it has got to put a smile on your face! From super original to super heroes, from scary to humorous, and everything in between! Some had masks where you had to guess who it was, but eventually they would laugh or say something, and you’d have it figured out! If this is your first event, it might take you a little longer, but that is what’s great about these big parties that E&A has every year… it’s an ice breaker in itself! You all have something in common tonight… you’re all dressed up as someone other than yourself! Tonight… you can be anyone you want to be! This is a night where “nerds” get along with Gangsters, and flappers get along with ghosts, and a devil can sit on an angel’s lap… tonight… anything goes! So whether you met someone new (or will have to re-meet them again, when they are out of costume) or got to catch up with someone you already knew, then mission accomplished! All of you super heroes did your job and saved the night! Especially on the dance floor! Two words: DANCE-OFF! So until next year….

We had an AWESOME Halloween Party Saturday Night! It started with something unusual – a professional make-up artist zombie-izing people. In about 3 minutes Vivienne Vermuth changed each victim from whatever their costume was into a realistic looking zombie or an undead with wounds and dripping blood. It was amazing! Then, we all had a chance to step up to a green screen where one our members, David, took our pictures and printed them with a spooky house in the background so we had great souvenirs from the night. The food was a yummy taco/nacho bar and the DJ played anything we wanted to dance to. We danced until way after midnight. We had a blast!
