Haunted Victorian Party in Madison, WI – Hosted by MA101!
Friends and readers of the Madison area, this is for you! Everyone else, my apologies. We would love to have you too some day. If you’re determined enough to drive in from out of town we can almost certainly make a bed for you. But in the meantime, would you like to write a scary story for our contest instead? That can be done from anywhere!
As for the Madison-and-southern-Wisconsin people, you’re invited…
HAUNTED VICTORIAN HALLOWEEN PARTY
Saturday, Oct. 27 9:00 PM
Just this fall, your humble narrator and a pair of his friends moved into a third-floor apartment in an old, redone Victorian mansion. Little did they know that the ghosts of the original inhabitants still stalked the halls, turning the locks on doors unseen and clawing eerily within the walls!
Will the ghosts lock the party-goers in? Will spirits trapped behind the wainscoting come bursting free? (or are they just mice, and we should lay some damn traps?) No one can say! But there’ll be a keg, so, y’know, come take your chances anyway.
If you’re in the Madison area and you read the blog, you’re welcome to stop on by. We’d love to have you. It’s a big place and we’ll have it done up proper and haunted. Costumes aren’t required, but they’re always more fun, and come on — it’s Halloween! You don’t want to be that one dude that didn’t wear a costume (unless you’re “that one lame dude who didn’t wear a costume” and then in the middle of the party an alien chestburster comes erupting out of your street clothes, or something like that — surprise costumes are awesome).
I haven’t posted the address for fairly obvious reasons, but you can drop me an e-mail and let me know that yes, you’re actually a MA101-reader who would like to attend, and not just a creepy robot stalker program bent on harvesting my personal data and/or organs (that would be kind of cool and creepy, but definitely not in the “Victorian” theme we’re going for). Drop me a line and I will give you the address and phone number:
You can also send your scary stories to that address if you’re taking part in our contest! Why not do both? Get the full Halloween treatment this weekend.
And again, if you don’t live within striking distance of Madison, my apologies. Maybe send me your name and I can try to get one of the ghosts curse your family, ye unto a thousand thousand generations, long-distance.
Best I can do.
