When you leave the TITLE of your Halloween party as simply that…a Halloween party…you leave your guests racking their brains trying to come up with something original. Picking the theme of costume for the night…however…COOL IDEA! You set the theme, your guests must adhere…and the fun comes in when you’re aiming to be the best at said theme!
Here’s where I’m coming from, a bar just opened in New York City called Stay Classy New York, from The New York Post:
Stay Classy New York, the world’s first bar inspired by Will Ferrell characters and jokes, opened this month on the Lower East Side, with enough Ferrell ephemera to overwhelm even the most die-hard “Old School”-loving, “shake and bake” shouting fans.
“It’s all about the celebration of his work, his movies and the stuff we love about the guy,” says Zach Neil, who came up with the idea with his best friend, Brian Link. The 36-year-olds have been friends since 14 and have devoured most of Ferrell’s oeuvre since.
Ferrell fans have been packing the bar since its opening — a whole spectrum of them, from bros in business suits to punks in leather jackets. Compared with other Lower East Side nightclub spots, Stay Classy is more civil, even with drinkers shouting, “I definitely need a Whale’s Vagina!” (That’s an “Anchorman” reference, by the way, here made with vodka, triple sec, orange juice and sloe gin.)
Neil and Link expect the actor will find out soon enough about their spot, if he hasn’t already. What will they do if he pops by one day?
“He better make sure he has a reservation,” Neil says, “because we’re going to be pretty busy.”
Here’s their Halloween party theme…how many Ron Burgundy’s can fit in one room. Who’s going as the Channel 5 news team? Who’s going as Veronica Corningstone?
Here are some drinks you can expect to be available at their Halloween party:
If you could base ALL bar decor and menu items on a certain musician or celebrity, who’s inspiring you?
