Halloween for Adults


[Linking up with yeahwrite!]

Let’s talk about Halloween for adults. No, not sexy parties filled with zombie (and other) sluts.



But another kind of Halloween for adults. Like this:









See?



I’d be more than happy to buy mini wine bottles to give out to adults.
  
And there could be levels of awesome, just like trick or treating.

BEST:



ACCEPTABLE:


WORST:



Seriously, why is it socially acceptable for children to go people’s houses and demand candy, yet not acceptable for local bloggers to knock on people’s doors and demand booze?!  WHAT KIND OF MESSED UP WORLD IS THIS?!

Anyone?

  2. I'm very in favor of this! Creepy as this is, sometimes I think we'd get along IRL- popcorn, kitties, wine. The foundations to any friendship ;)

  3. Hmmm...I had a dressed up adult ask me for one of the fresh picked apples on our porch. I think her requesting wine would've seemed better.

  4. Actually, when I was little the parents of my friends would stop by my house for "Trick or Beer" while we were out getting candy. Perhaps my mom was ahead of her time? "_

  5. Make it a choice of wine or beer and you've got yourself a deal. And yes, wine coolers are lies. Tiny, koolaid flavored lies.

  6. I would happily accept those little airplane size mini bottles of liquor. Or even a whole bottle of vodka. Which would be awesome.

    Gia for President!!!

  7. This is a beautiful, inspired idea. Although can we also include those airplane bottles of liquor? And would handing out those mini wine bottles after putting them in the refrigerator qualify as a "trick"?

  8. Yes. this is everything the world needs. me pan handling for booze dressed like a slutty something.

  9. Why on earth has nobody thought of this yet? That's it . . . I'm gonna get this party started. I have a shit ton of kids come to my house every year. I'm gonna go buy some mini bottles of booze and hand them out to the neighbor parents who have to cart their kids around all night.

    Actually, a few houses in my neighborhood actually offer the hubs a beer when we come by. It's already a thing . . . sorta. But yes, wine it needs to be!! You are brilliant.

  10. I'll be dressing as a plain clothes detective this year...like every year...and bobbing for apples in bourbon. No...I'm kidding.

  11. Last year on Halloween, I wanted something sweet but didn't feel like going out to buy anything, so I went trick-or-treating at my neighbours house. He laughed the entire time, but also gave me a pretty good stash of candy. Booze would have been awesome too.

  12. Oh I LOVE this idea!!! Or maybe that's just the wine deprivation talking. One bottle of wine (even a mini one) is WAY better than candy that I'll feel guilty about eating later on. I somehow manage to never feel guilty about wine. We need to make this happen.

  13. APPARENTLY, in Washington D.C., it is not unusual for college kids to go trick or treating at the foreign embassies. They get things like cigars and booze.

    This is a real thing.

  14. Because no one in the world would ever jump on this idea (because they're all dumb), I am going to stay at home protesting that there is no adult halloween and drink my wine, toasting Gia for being a genius.

  15. When I was a kid, all the neighborhood dads would accompany their kids trick-or-treating. They'd "fill-up" at any house that was someone they knew and called it trick-or-drinking. :)

  16. I love this idea! Then maybe all the rich neighborhoods could start giving out hard liquor. Trick or Gin!

  17. I love you. Sharing this right now @Not Appropriate Angela on facebook.

  18. I'm down for this idea.

    Wine coolers = fig newtons or apples. No one wants them, but they will get eaten by someone. (They really still count as alcohol?!?)

    ReplyDelete
  19. As awesome as this is, keep in mind that some of your readers don't handle alcohol as well as everyone else and adult Halloween will come to an end much sooner.

    Damn my Asian genes.

  20. This is a great idea. It's not fair that kids get everything for free!

    Wait. I have an idea. Do you think it will work if we cry hysterically outside every house until they give us what they want? That's how kids do it, right? "I waaaant aaaaalcohol!!!"

    ReplyDelete
  21. I've always wanted to go to a sexy zombie party, but this would do. Plus I'm easy to please: wine coolers would be just fine for this trick or treater.

    ReplyDelete
  22. I want to go to there...

    Seriously, that is the best idea ever!

    ReplyDelete
  23. Haha I'm loving this. I want that Halloween :)

    ReplyDelete
  24. Love the slutty zombie costume. I mean, ironically, of course.

    ReplyDelete
  25. As always, you are adorable. I'd give you a bottle if you knocked on my door - a big bottle too!

    ReplyDelete
  26. I am SO with you on this one. Everything is all about the kids these days. WHY CAN'T WE HAVE ANY FUN??
    Oh, and wine coolers are such bull shit. Brightly colored, sparkly bull shit. In a bottle.
    The End.

  27. I LOVE the idea of a mini wine bottle for a Halloween treat. All year actually! I could just carry them around in my purse and open one up as I wait for my kids or wait at doctor's offices or really wherever...

    ReplyDelete
  28. I have to be honest with you here, I always thought Halloween was way too much work when I could just go buy candy. And it sounds like too much work for wine. But, the wine cooler part had me cracking up!

    ReplyDelete
  29. I am so on board with this idea!! :D

    ReplyDelete
  30. Best. Idea. Ever. Except I really hate sharing my wine with others.

    ReplyDelete
  31. Is this open to all adults or just bloggers? You may be on to something.

    ReplyDelete
  32. I think this post establishes you as the voice of your generation.

  33. I love your "Best-Acceptable-Worst" parallel with the candy. Of course, you left out the actual worst: a box of raisins/sparkling grape juice.
    Cheers!

    ReplyDelete
  34. Hysterical. Why don't you try it this year and see what happens?!

    ReplyDelete
  35. Oh, yeah! I'm with you! Loved the best-acceptable-worst cartoons!

    ReplyDelete
  36. I'm down with the wine, But I'd have to roll someone's house over a damn Bartle and James Wine Cooler. Blagh.

  37. Finally, something worth bringing up at the Home Owners Association Bitchfest. Ellen

  38. You could totally do this as a "trunk or treat" event! It's when you decorate the trunks of cars and do trick-or-treating in a parking lot.

    Although you'd probably need a liquor silence to keep things on the up-and-up...
