Over the Weekend: HARD Haunted Mansion, Dia De Los Muertos, Children of the Candy Corn, West Hollywood Carnaval, LACMA Costume Ball
Lucky for us, Halloween fell on Friday this year so we could fully indulge without having to worry about crawling into work the next day dressed in the tattered remains of a sexy bee costume. There were too many events and parties this weekend to count and keeping up required more stamina than Red Bull could provide. Regardless, L.A. Weekly did a damn good job at hitting up the hot spots. Consider us exhausted.
