Halloween Costume Parties Abound

For adults who like to get dressed up, there will be plenty of chances over the next few days, with prizes for those who do it best. Carissa Katz

Halloween isn’t just for kids, and there are a number of costume parties this week at which adults can prove it, and possibly be rewarded for their efforts. 

Tomorrow, Indian Wells Tavern in Amagansett will offer a $100 gift card, redeemable either there or at Bostwick’s Chowder House in East Hampton, for the best costumes, and gift baskets for most revealing, best couple, scariest, funniest, and most original. The party gets going at 10 p.m. and will feature a D.J. and drink specials. There is a $10 cover.

The Springs Tavern on Fort Pond Boulevard in that hamlet has two Halloween parties planned, both with costume prizes. Tomorrow D.J. Chilly and D.J. Matty Nice will spin from 10 p.m. to 2 a.m. The Montauk Brewing Company will give out prizes for best couple, best group, scariest, funniest, most original, and most revealing costumes. On Saturday, Divas Karaoke will bring Scaryoke to the tavern from 9 p.m. to 1 a.m. There will be drink specials both nights. There’s a $10 cover on Friday, but no cover for Saturday’s party.

A Halloween party with no admission fee will be held at the Backyard restaurant at Solé East Beach in Montauk on Saturday, starting at 8 p.m. There will be free bar food, drink specials, and a D.J. Guests who arrive in costume will be entered into a raffle for a free weekend stay at the resort. This is the restaurant’s final weekend of the season.

The Clubhouse at East Hampton Indoor Tennis will throw a costume party on Saturday, starting at 8 p.m. A D.J. will provide the soundtrack, and the best costumes stand a chance of winning $500, $250, and $100 gift cards. Drink and food specials are promised. 

Costumes are a must for Rowdy Hall’s annual Rowdyween party on Wednesday beginning at 7 p.m., and because of that the get-ups are usually real show stoppers. The entry fee — $30 in advance and $35 at the door — includes one drink and free snacks. There will be $5 draft beers, $6 well drinks, and a D.J. The restaurant, in East Hampton Village, will award a whopping $500 in cash prizes for best costumes.
