Halloween falling on a Friday night means you can't step out your front door without being snagged into a raging party. Next thing you know, you wake up with smudges of face paint clogging your pores in an ill-fitting costume that really doesn't breathe well. Now that's a hell of an outfit for your walk of shame.

Maybe we didn't go that far last year, but we really hit it a little too hard and found ourselves stealing cheap Chardonnay from the refrigerator at a house party while our more plowed companions pathetically puked in the backyard. So this time around, we headed to Last Exit in Tempe with the intent to just slightly rip it up. Thankfully, the crowd was healthy but not overbearing. Not to mention, there were hardly any slutty witch/nurse/nun/anything costumes. What a relief.
