Halloween parties for sexy Big Bird

Let our Hit List guide your nighttime activities

Walgreens, Target and your neighborhood porn shop are all stocked with the elements for a Halloween costume that treads the line between kind-of-whorish and definitely-very-whorish. This year, sexy Big Bird is my favorite of the stupid sexy-costume ideas. I doubt even Big Bird’s Sesame Street pal, The Count, will be able to figure out the number of infections the poor girl who wears it will be susceptible to. No matter what sort of bird you choose to be, I can give you one, two, three places to preen this coming week.

Quality Social (789 Sixth Ave., Downtown) converts to a Haunted House of Fortune on Friday and Saturday, Oct. 26 and 27. The bar will be a cursed 19th-century manor and feature live art and circus performances by The Grand Artique. DJ Scotty Boy provides the tunes on Friday while Andy Darrigo and Junior the Disco Punk handle duties on Saturday. Tickets for each night are $40.

On Halloween night, the biggest Internet hit of the year comes to life at Bar Basic (410 10th Ave. in East Village) for the Gangnam Style Halloween Party. The no-cover party honors South Korean rapper Psy and his YouTube smash with a Gangnam Style costume contest that will probably incite a few calls of “Heeeeeey! Sexy lady!” Ride your invisible pony all the way to a cash prize.

No skanky-girl costume can ever beat the bare-chested audacity that the gay folks bring to Halloween. I’ve seen a gorgeous, chiseled man call himself Superman by simply wearing blue Speedos and a red cape. See this level of boldness at Rich’s (1051 University Ave. in Hillcrest), which will host festivities all weekend and on Halloween night. Of all the events planned, my money is on the Diva’s from the Dead drag party on Friday. No one wins at Halloween quite like a brassy drag queen.
