Best Theme Bash
Halloween is amateur night. Everyone knows it, particularly Perish Dignam. He throws parties that put anything you've ever done on Oct. 31 to shame, and he does it almost every month. From "Illuminaughty" glow-in-the-dark gatherings to "hot, pink and wet" foam fetes, his Studio 69-branded bashes are always over the top and always encourage themed costumes. (When you RSVP on Facebook, you'll even get links to stores that carry the appropriate ensembles.) Sure, you don't have to dress up for his events, but if you don't, you're sure to feel left out among the scantily clad cosplay babes, pirates and ninjas. Also, there are also dubstep, electro and live fire performances, not to mention spanking (yes) and photo booths. The party moves around from clubs to warehouses; you'll receive the location upon your RSVP. Perish69Club.com.
