Choosing a Halloween costume is not a simple task. You can’t just choose one on a whim because there are a ton of implications that could come with that getup, and it’s up to you to live up to the expectations of your costume.
Better yet, it’s extremely important to know what you should be drinking while beautifully rocking your costume you spent ~so~ much time on. Don’t worry, that’s why we’re here.
1. WITCH – THE SASSY ONE
What To Expect: A true classic. There’s not a costume more iconic than a witch and those donned in this costume own this fact. They’re ready to stir the cauldron with their sassy silver tongues and aren’t afraid of the consequences because if anything goes awry they’ll jump on their broom and escape.
What They’re Drinking: White wine — probs Chardonnay tbh.
2. HARLEY QUINN – THE BASIC ONE
What To Expect: Admit it, Harley Quinn, while it may be the costume of 2016, you’re going to be a single fish swimming in an ocean of Harleys all claiming to be “Daddy’s Little Monster.” Make sure to take a good squad picture.
What They’re Drinking: A simple vodka cocktail of the cotton candy variety.
3. WONDER WOMAN – THE INTENSE ONE
What To Expect: The party don’t start ‘till Wonder Woman walks in and she’s there to bring justice with a splash of good times. Get ready for someone who’s going to get super-competitive at all of the games and lasso up all troublemakers.
What They’re Drinking: Spiked Cider with a shot of cinnamon whiskey.
4. BATMAN / SUPERMAN – THE BEER BROS
What To Expect: When Batman and Superman come together at the party they’re prepared to fight in a flip cup competition like no other and trust us, it’s gonna be ~lit~.
What They’re Drinking: Tons and tons of session beer.
5. PIRATE (MALE & FEMALE) – THE SUPER DRUNK ONE
What To Expect: Why is the rum always gone?? Oops, our bad. Bringing a bottle of rum with you all started as a costume accessory but then took a turn for the worse. Better plan to pass on captaining the ship home and call an Uber instead.
What They’re Drinking: A rum punch that could instantly turn them into a fire-breathing pirate.
6. DISNEY PRINCESS & PRINCE – THE DRUNK IN LOVE COUPLE
What To Expect: Once upon a time, there was a prince and a princess who happened to show up to the same Halloween party. Their eyes met across the dance floor. However, they teasingly looked away. As the night went on, glances were exchanged but neither had the courage to make the first move. It wasn’t until a group of “sexy animals” pushed them together that Cupid’s arrow finally struck.
What They’re Drinking: Pinot Noir
7. VAMPIRE & COUNTESS – THE SULTRY ONE
What To Expect: At the party, always be wary of vampires because they are just a bunch of thirsty bitches. They’re worse than a bunch of Tinder dates gone wrong and they only want you for your blood. Don’t trust them.
What They’re Drinking: A dark Cabernet Sauvignon to swirl as they laugh maniacally.
8. PUN COSTUME – THE OBNOXIOUS ONE
What To Expect: I’ll admit there are some really good pun costumes out there that deserve a gold medal, but a lot of them are overdone and a stretch. Cat burglar? Really? Hope you’re ready to spend the entire night explaining your costume.
What They’re Drinking: A super complex fall sangria you’ll also have to explain to people.

Things have turned around for a Louisiana flood victim.
James Lapeze, a 72-year-old man from the city of Central, recently won a $1 million Powerball Prize, according to a release from the Louisiana Lottery. The fortuitous win comes after Lapeze’s house was damaged in August’s floods that left at least 13 dead and damaged about 40,000 homes.
The winner, who claimed his prize last Friday, said he was in shock over his good fortune.
“I checked my numbers over and over again,” Lapeze, who lives in the city of Central, said in the release. “I even had my wife check them because I really couldn’t believe that I won!”
The 72-year-old, who plays the lottery every week, won from an Oct. 1 lottery drawing. He’ll end up with a total of $700,000 in winnings after taxes. He said he’d use the money to pay off his house and retire, Kimberly Chopin, director of communications for the Louisiana Lottery, said in an email to The Huffington Post.
Lapeze wasn’t the only one who took home a win. Romero’s Food Mart, the store that sold the ticket, also received $10,000.
The win proved particularly special for those close to people affected by the devastating floods, Chopin told HuffPost.
“Watching so many of our friends, family and neighbors in the greater Baton Rouge area struggle in the aftermath of the recent flooding, it is especially pleasing to see lottery winnings help a regular player face an adversity.”
It's pumpkin carving season! But it can sometimes be difficult to keep your pumpkins looking fresh.
So if you plan on carving a pumpkin to celebrate the season, you'll need to know these tips from Schnepf Farms to make them last longer so it doesn't shrivel up too quickly.
1. Put Vaseline petroleum jelly on all of the cut edges of the pumpkin. This will keep the pumpkin hydrated and moisture inside which will make the pumpkin last longer.
2. Another way to pro-long the pumpkin's life is to soak it in ice water over night and then every day for 15 minutes to keep it hydrated.
Of course, you can avoid a pumpkin shriveling up quickly if you choose not carve it. You can instead paint different designs on them which makes them last longer, especially if you keep them inside. Plus painting is probably easier than carving elaborate designs!
Food has earned its rightful place in numerous American museums — Julia Child’s kitchen is enshrined in the Smithsonian, for instance — but what about beer? That’s the idea behind Brew, a museum devoted entirely to the Western world’s favorite grain-based beverage that’s slated to open in Pittsburgh come 2018.
According to a press release, Brew will be designed in collaboration with beer and food experts and feature interactive exhibits and activities — including, yes, drinking.
"America has large-scale museums dedicated to so many important aspects of human culture but, surprisingly, no epic museum dedicated to beer — until now,” says Brew co-founder Matt Sherwin. He added that he wants the museum to be used “to understand all aspects of what it means to be human — our sociology, our anthropology, our history, our economics, our politics.”
In addition to beer artifacts and exhibits, the 50,000 square-foot complex will include a 300-seat brewpub, gift shop, a “Beer Hall of Fame,” and a Brewers Wall set to showcase information on all 4,800 breweries currently operating in the U.S. According to a museum spokesperson, the size and scope of Brew will be comparable to Cleveland's Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.
The founders anticipate a Spring 2018 opening, though they haven’t yet pinned down an exact location for the project.
Meanwhile, another beer museum is in the works further west: A museum-cum-brewpub aptly named the Brewseum is currently being planned for Chicago, though it’s still in the early funding stage
