Okay, this post is mostly going to be a bunch more photos, but first, a little bit of background. Our friend Rick lines up some super fun things for our group of friends to do and this year for Halloween weekend, he got us the absolute best seats in the house for a Halloween show at the Triple Door in Seattle. We all love this venue. It’s a small showroom, very popular, that features well known and up and coming acts alike. This time around we were booked for a burlesque type show built around Tim Burton’s “Nightmare Before Christmas.” Turns out none of us really know that story well enough to fully appreciate last night’s show but what the heck, when you’re with good friends, who cares what’s playing! The show was definitely on the funky side with a little gratuitous naked ta-tas thrown in to keep things interesting but we had fun just the same.
And we had a super blast before the show at dinner at a mafioso feeling place aptly named “Vito’s”. What a kick that place was! It’s kind of a low lights, red walls, old booths, mirrors on the wall, kind of place. It has some great Italian food though and last night we might have hit it at its absolute best since our table was by the front door and people kept pouring in with every kind of costume you can imagine. Loved it! We got to see them all. I especially loved how you could look over at the bar and see people lined up on the bar stools drinking and chatting like being dressed as a banana or vampire or 80′s rock star with real big hair was perfectly normal. Actually, it sort of suited the place and felt, well, kind of normal. : ) On top of that, Vito’s had live piano music going and this is a group that loves a place where the music is live.
The topper might have been though how well our own Tamy was dressed! She was a total siren last night and, in a different time, definitely would have been Vito, the mob bosses, lady luck. : ) She spared no detail and besides her cut to there, body hugging, gorgeous navy dress, she had her hair done in a classic 40s style and added bright red nails, red lipstick and a faux fur stole. She was the beautiful scene stealer.
Friday night plus Saturday night = another Halloween to remember! A whole bunch of spooktacular fun!
