The Wildest Parties for Halloween 2010

While kids tend to go out trick-or-treating, adults tend to go out and party on Halloween, whether it’s just to the local bar or club, a house party and gathering of friends, or a large nightclub or hotel party in the city.  If you’re not headed out trick or treating and you live in a major city, but haunted houses aren’t your thing, consider going to a Halloween party.

We scanned the social web and checked out the best parties in major US cities, from New York City to Los Angeles, and everywhere in between.  While we aren’t officially endorsing these particular events, and tickets might no longer be available, the hype is all about these wild Halloween parties.
