This year halloween fell on a weekend / Me and geto boyz are trick-or-treating / Robbing little kids for bags / Till an old man got behind our ass
Yes, like the lines rhymed by Bushwick Bill of the Geto Boys on the 1991 hit, "Mind Playing Tricks On Me," Halloween was on a weekend this year, meaning there were a bevy of nightlife options for anyone who wanted to go out.

Pop culture-inspired outfits and attitudes dominated at many St. Louis Halloween parties last night, and from some vantage points, it appeared that the backlash against slutty Halloween costumes had an effect on attire of female revelers, as nary a sexy nurse, sexy pirate or sexy schoolteacher could be spotted.

We have two slideshows up now, from two downtown parties at Lure nightclub and a few blocks up the street at Flamingo Bowl.
