Social Snaps: General Pants Halloween Party

Inspired by Mexico's Day of the Dead.

You know that when General Pants throws a party, there is going to be much fun to be had. Add into the mix a bar tab, hip hop and a whole lot of face paint, and it's guaranteed to be a wild one. Last night, The Standard on Taylor Square (which is an unexpected warehouse space above Kinselas), was overtaken with ghouls, Hunter S. Thompson's, Michael Jackson's, zombie brides, convicts and pirates. While there was certainly no grieving, the Halloween party was inspired by the Mexican Day of the Dead festival, which was best seen through the excellent decor including fake floral wreaths, papermache skulls, burning candles and installation art like large-scale sombrero-wearing skeletons painted on the walls. Thanks to Guzman Y Gomez, guests were also treated to delicious burritos, of which I ate two. Nay, three.

Best costume of the night goes to the dude dressed a giant hot dog, who still managed to hit the d-floor (see, getting down with the kids) despite some very constricting buns binding his arms to his torso. Sexy sailors were thankfully kept to a minimum.
