I screamed so loud I could barely hear myself think! The Festival of Souls Demon Mansion Haunted House is sure to leave you just as terrified and in a daze as you tremble from room to room. Located in the Village at Gulfstream Park and running until Halloween night, the seasonal attraction features a 17 room, 8,000 sq ft labyrinth with several themed areas that include hell's kitchen, an exploding bathroom, the howling woman, and the spider room, among others. In addtion to the Haunted Manson, Gulfstream Park is offering something totally unique to Halloween attractions in South Florida this year. The zombie safari paintball hayride promises to be so realistically terrifying that one will feel convinced that the zombie apocolypse is upon us, and we must prepare for the invasion! Guests will take a trailer safari trip through 50,000 sq ft of "ruins" made to look like the aftermath of a post-apocalyptic city and shoot ultraviolet paintballs at the impending zombie ambush.
Park East is a hidden gem in the heart of Hazlet, New Jersey. Unlike many Jersey Shore hot spots, it's not near any beach front property. Rather, it is located on a desolate stretch of State Route 35. This slightly awkward position has not stopped people from flocking to the Jersey oasis.
Upon arrival, you'll be greeted by the valet. As you navigate through the maze of cars to the door, take out some cash and pay the always-dreadful door cover. This will usually set you back about $10. The drinks aren't cheap either. To be blunt, don't come to Park East without at least a small bank roll. Unless you're a woman of course: there'll be plenty of guys willing to buy you drinks all night. No secret there.
Grab your oversized Slurpee cup and head to the Draft House in Long Branch, New Jersey. On Tuesday nights, the Draft House will fill any container you bring with Miller Lite for only two dollars. With ten bucks, you'll be seeing double in no time! Just don't take your drunken stupor too far--the Draft House also provides an abundant amount of beautiful Monmouth University students to mingle with, and you won't impress them if you're lying on the floor in fetal position.
The crowd is certainly mixed. It ranges from rowdy college kids to business men strutting their stuff for the rambunctious sorority girls. Leave your skinny jeans, Chuck Taylors, and white tees at home -- the Draft House is a little more upscale than your average sports bar. Admittedly, if you bring your Ed Hardy shirt, you might fit in more than true Jersey Shore residents would like to admit.
A little snow can’t stop the show! On March 10 2011 the hot and the fabulous embraced the gloomy weather and came out to celebrate the opening of The Mondrian Soho. You know it's a party when celebrities such as Russell Simmons, EVE, Olivia Palermo, Brad Goreski and Charlotte Ronson attend. The cocktail party took over the hotel’s lobby, the gorgeous Garden Room and awe-inspiring penthouse.
The night was filled with great entertainment. The Kills rocked the room with an incredible performance and New York’s hottest DJs, Harley Viera-Newton and DJ Kiss spun and got the crowd dancing till 4 in the morning.
Usually, when people think of going out in the city, they immediately turn to neighborhoods like the Castro, SOMA or the Mission -- traditional nightlife hubs, with the highest concentrations of bars. While these neighborhoods do have a plethora of great places to grab a drink or five, sometimes one great bar is better than a handful of good ones. Take, for example, the Buckshot.
Located in the otherwise sleepy neighborhood of the Richmond District, the Buckshot is much more than just your average local bar. On the outside, it looks like any other dive, but once you enter, the scenery is completely different. Reminiscent of a cabin up in the High Sierras, the Buckshot's walls are lined with deer heads, skateboards, KISS dolls and other knick-knacks. This, and the woodsy decor, help give the bar a relaxed, comfortable feel that's lacking in many of the city's better-known haunts.
I spent the months between November and April hitting every hot spot in town. Booze, boys and partying was all I needed in my life. Listen to 50 Cent’s “I get It In” and you will understand my momentum, there wasn’t a night of the week that I didn’t know where the party was. I became addicted to not waiting in line, bottle service and had a blast discovering all the after-hour spots in the city, yes they do still exists. I had so many nights that ended when most people were heading to work and walking their children to school. I remember sleeping my days away and waking up just in time to do it all over again.

And, now we have found out that's not the reason for the breakup. And, they weren't even sitting in the seats they paid for. Apparently, the shady duo used the foul ball to end a series of disagreements with a breakup.
Surely, everyone has had at least one bad date in their lifetime. Whether you had a cheap date, a match made in confusion or a wardrobe malfunction; we all have stories to share. Unfortunately, one woman learned that chivalry is dead after her boyfriend’s comedic antics.
According to MLB Yahoo Sports, On Monday a woman named Sarah was struck with a foul ball at the Houston Astros game after her boyfriend, Bo, ducked out of the way. Apparently, men don’t know the simple rule of a baseball date; always catch the ball. Bo probably didn’t get the memo, which allowed him to earn the nickname "The Bailer."
New York in the summer is known for its unbearable humidity. Sometimes it’s difficult to breathe because the humidity is so thick you can cut through it with a knife. It can be a nuisance if you want to go out for the night; your skin is moist and even though every bar in NYC has air condition you still can’t feel a peep of cold air.
You may think it’s near impossible to escape the dreadful humidity, but there is hope New Yorkers.
