Halloween is always known for being a little freaky in SF, and this year is no exception. While you are making last-minute Costume Preparations, warm up for the holiday and get as nasty as you want to be with the notoriously kinky Exotic Erotic Ball and Expo. This year, the party is going down on the Richmond waterfront with a VIP vessel that will stay rocking all night. Before you go, get into the mood and show off your skills at the Air Sex Championship. Lace up for the costume edition of Roller Disco and pick up a few good lines during Aziz Ansari's run at The Fillmore. Put the debauchery on pause for another fantastic lineup at the Bridge School Benefit, and recharge as the countdown to Halloween continues. Looking for more party ideas? Check out our Halloween Guide.
