The Red Party is now sold out, but that’s no reason to get your bloomers in a twist. Why not spot the awesome 1920s-inspired outfit you had planned — no, curated — to the Monster Bash at the Joe tonight?

And while the Red Party would have been a swell time, the Monster Bash has its own set of perks. First, the cost of the ticket is a bargain in comparison ringing in at $5 if you buy it in advance or $10 at the door. Plus, you’ll be some of the first people to sip on the new pumpkin beer shake. And DJ Natty Heavy will be spinning, so you know there’ll be a dance party at some point in the night. Oh, and not like you needed another reason, but there’s a costume contest with first prize taking home $1,000 — meaning one lucky (and creative) partier will actually make money for attending.

The Monster Bash kicks off at 7 p.m. tonight at Joe Riley Park, 360 Fishburne St. Get your tickets here. And there’s an after party at Sparians @ River Bowl in Mt. P with one free game of bowling and $1 brews.
