Post-Halloween breather

Let our Hit List guide your nighttime activities

Halloween seems to have lasted a whole week this year. Bars, clubs, co-workers and friends conspired to make this just about the drinkiest week in history, thanks to night after night of parties. For those officially burned out by All Hollow’s Eve ragers—or will be on Thursday morning— here are some mellow nights to help you wind down:

On Friday, Nov. 2, the Lafayette Hotel (2223 El Cajon Blvd. in North Park) holds an evening pool party with Trio Gadjo. The gypsy jazz band will perform poolside from 6 to 8 p.m., setting the mood for a cozy night. Sip on a cocktail on a lounger or even take a dip. No wigs, face paint or fishnet stockings are necessary.

Nothing recharges a tired body quite like an island vacation. A gentle breeze, ukulele music and a cocktail with a tiny umbrella can do wonders. Instead of going to some crappy resort, head to Bar Pink (3829 30th St. in North Park) for Tiki Tuesday on Nov. 6. Enjoy a Sneaky Tiki, the greatest tropical cocktail ever invented, while Adrian Demain makes mellow sounds with his Exoticatronica, an instrument on which he loops lap-steel guitar and ukulele music. All you need is a hammock to make this night even more relaxing.

Also happening on Tuesday, Nov. 6, is Whistle Stop Bar’s (2236 Fern St. in South Park) Friends Chill, during which you and your friends can, indeed, just chill. DJs play tunes that are easy on the ears (think Miles Davis, Bjork and Mogwai) while you enjoy a few rounds of Candyland, Connect 4, Operation or any of the other board games laid out for you. There’s even Nintendo and Atari games on the big screen. It’s everything you had at a slumber party as a kid, plus alcohol. Though, by this point, chocolate milk may sound like heaven.
