Default Skip the Halloween Parade in NYC....

Worst halloween ever. Subways were packed. Took about 10 minutes to get topside because there was such a mob. Streets were packed, couldn't see **** of the parade. If you're ever planning on going get there about 2 hours early. Ended up going to a japanese desert bar that was showing japanese horror movies and got some crazy asian cocktails. Picked up my car (OTM) from the garage only to have the attendent rev the **** out of it pulling it out of the spot. I don't think he could really drive a stick. Needless to say I yelled at him and gave no tip. Took 1/2 an hour to get from 18th street to 42nd street and had some ******* ******* bump my rear bumper and drive away. Nice long scrape in the paint, and we were going to put this car up for sale next week... Anyone do anything fun?

I had no idea Japan has deserts, learn something new every day.

Sucks to hear though, NYC is crowded enough day-to-day so I couldn't imagine during something like that.. count me out. What is your OTM?

subaru forester. Doesn't get driven much and we don't need such a big car so we (GF and I) are going to get a Yaris or a Fit for the gas mileage. And about NYC being crowded...I have never seen it like this. I wish I took a picture of the subway platform. A sea of people as far as the eye could see. Japanese have good deserts, and cocktails. Soshu is an interesting alternative to Sake.

That is why I have always preferred house parties instead.

Dressed up as an insane person and tied up would have made NYC a living hell.

I did the halloween parade in the village about 10 years ago. Holy ******* ****. What a freak show. I took the train in and made it right into the thick of it but never found my friends. Afterward I ended up getting wasted spending way too much money at some random bar with some random people and then ended up on a couch in some random bitche's appt. Good times.

You'd have to be standing on top of Mt. Everest to not have that one go over your head. Jeez. I didn't know supernanny drove a Miata!


I thought the whole point of big events in NY were the ridiculous crowds and fighting traffic! Sounds like the dezzerte bar was the perfect place to be on a halloween night. What could have been better than that?

the hustle and bustle of new york can be fun when it's actually moving. When your in a crowd of thousands of people, pushing you, packed like sardines it looses its charm. The bar was much much nicer. My inner child is an 80 year old man though I think.
