Halloween House Party

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.

There was a solid stretch of years where our kids were very, very into Halloween. At any given moment, no matter the time of year – March, August; hell, even November – if you asked them what they were going to dress up as next time, they’d have an answer for you. As soon as the last Butterfinger was down the hatch, they’d start plotting whether to be Hermione or Vampire Cheerleader or Little Orphan Annie next year.

Halloween is still pretty huge for them, even though it ain’t like it used to be. Kids grow up, but that doesn’t mean their parents move on. We still hang the old ghost by the front door and plant the flashing eyeballs in the bushes, and on the actual day itself, we take the afternoon off to help apply fake blood and green hairspray – and to prep for our annual Halloween Launch Party.

For the rest of the story (and for the kick-ass Halloween Party Chicken Chorizo Chili you are looking at above), head over to Bon Appetit, who has excerpted the HTCE Launch Party chapter for our October Providers column.
