Soon, it will be Halloween - that time of the year when spirits prowl the streets and witches take to their brooms, cackling away into the dark sky overhead. So, pull out your vampire fangs and zombie mask, because disguising yourself as one of them is the only way you can even hope to make it through the night. And yes, don't forget to prop a teething jack-o-lantern at the doorstep for good measure; the evil ones can always do with some extra appeasement.
Or, you could just show up at Vivanta by Taj-Gurgaon on October 31 for an evening of laughter and unbridled fun at the expense of "the forces of evil" and the creepy-crawlies that be. To be held at the Tease Terrace, revamped into a ghostly venue populated by bats, coffins, skeletons and black cats, the Halloween party promises to bring back memories of every monster that may have resided under your childhood bed - and bestow upon you the power to bully them, instead of the other way round.
Complementing the spookiness is a food menu that will send a shiver down your spine. But then, don't let your cowardly side keep you from devouring the mummy dogs, vampire's hunted seafood stew and the ever-spooky zombie chocolate mousse, to the accompaniment of blood-red beverages.
And yes, there shall be music too... the kind that makes your bones shudder and your jaws rattle, and send every strand of hair on your head reaching for the ceiling. Brought to you by Daftar Zild, a bunch of working professionals brought together by their desire to jam on, the tunes would be a medley of fusion, folk and classic rock - customised to suit the occasion.
So, pick up your trick-n-treatin' basket and head to the Vivanta by Taj-Gurgaon for a rip-roaring time from 8.30 pm to half-past midnight. And may the spirits be with you!
