Get your haunt on

I think it’s safe to say that the girls of inanutshell have a slight obsession with dressing up. A brief scan on any of our given Facebook profiles and you’ll see love fests complete with homemade ensembles, painted faces, and recurring monkey costumes that were made appropriate for almost every occasion.

Needless to say that Halloween is obviously one of our collective favourite holidays and we usually celebrate it in style.

A weekend full of messy pirates, Lady Gaga’s, sailors and the like rolling through the bar I work at made it clear that we are not the only ones.

This year Halloween falls on a Monday, boo. But, the most die hard of Ottawa party animals are sure to be out in full force. Here are a few ideas for your night of mayhem.
Stay safe, nuts and Happy Halloween from all of us at Inanutshell!
