Halloween is just one week away, so if you haven’t planned your costume yet, get to it! There are a lot of great events happening throughout the island and a bunch of trips, cash prizes and more up for grabs. Let’s get right to it…
The Mongoose Monster Ball
Mongoose Junction is getting into the action this year with its first ever The Mongoose Monster Ball. Here’s what they had to say about it:
“Come by our party first and let us know that you would like to be considered for the Best Costume Prize. We’ll take your picture, get your cell phone number and text you 20 minutes prior to the contest if you are a finalist. We hope you’ll enjoy yourself with us all night, but if you have made a great effort on the costume and want go go bar hopping Cruz Bay, we get it.”
Judges will choose the finalists. Winners will be chosen by crowd participation. You must be present to win.
So what exactly is up for grabs? How about a weekend trip to Miami for two including airfare and hotel plus more than $600 in gift certifications to a variety of Mongoose Junction retailers. And to make the party even better – Inner Visions will be playing from 9 p.m. to midnight. Sounds like it will be a blast!
Skinny Legs Annual Halloween Bash
Skinny Legs will once again hold its legendary Halloween bash over in Coral Bay. For those of you planning on stopping by, the costumes here can be pretty amazing so make sure to up your game.
The costume contest happens at 10 p.m. and the winning costume gets a weekend trip to Old San Juan.
There will be $2 Coors Lights all night and The Ish will be performing. Always a great time over at Skinnys…
Motu’s Heroes vs Villains Halloween Party
If we know anything about the ladies at Motu, it’s that they know how to throw one heck of a party!
They’re at it again with their Heroes vs Villains Halloween party. Dress as your favorite hero, villain or anything else that suits your fancy, but definitely dress to impress.
They expect competition to be steep and some pretty good prizes will be awarded. Motu will also be debuting the new Patron Incendio.
And a delicious little side note: Motu’s monthly seasonal special is a pumpkin Bushwacker. It’s like a pumpkin pie jumped into your frozen drink .. topped with a bit of cinnamon of course. Yum!
The Parrot Club’s Halloween 2014
The Parrot Club holds one of the biggest Halloween parties on St. John. It’s so big, it typically spills outside into Wharfside. They’ve got some pretty great prizes too -$500 each is awarded for the sexiest, funnies, group and overall best costume. More than $2,000 in cash prizes … Sounds good to us!
X on St. John – Costume Contest
We love the costume contest over at X on St. John because it lets everyone get in on the action. Stop by X from 7 p.m. until close. They’ll take your pic and will post it on their Facebook page at www.Facebook.com/XonStJohn Their Facebook fans get to pick the winner, which means all of you! Winners will receive gift certificates to X on St. John, one of the only bars on island that has air conditioning I’d like to add.
So if you haven’t already, go over to their Facebook page and give them a “like”.
Halloween at The Beach Bar
Our friends at The Beach Bar are stepping it up this Halloween and are bringing in Don Dilego and Bree Sharp from New York City to perform. They’re holding a costume contest too. The winner will get a free charter on The Beach Bar boat. Sweet!
