Whirlwind Weekend: See What You Missed

Halloween weekend was cause for much merriment and mischief making. Whether at Rich's or the Roxy, the House of Blues or the streets of Montrose, a cosplay convention or an erotic ball, fun was found all over the city this weekend. Check out our favorite photos below.

The huge Houston Press Halloween Bash at the House of Blues brought out guys and ghouls from all over the city. See more photos from the event here.

Westheimer saw more staggering hordes this weekend, but they weren't zombies this time. The 3rd annual Montrose Crawl hopped from bar to bar on Saturday night. See more photos and costumes here.

The costumes at the Montrose Crawl had nothing on the 2009 Oni-Con anime and cosplay contest attendees (there was a giant Pedobear, for God's sake). Check out more photos that put your costume to shame here.

For the most fabulous costumes, the fieriest performers and the fiercest drag queens, Rich's had the market cornered this weekend. See for yourself here.

But although Rich's had a Jack In The Box, they didn't have Tickle Me Elmo or Homer Simpson -- but Escobar did. Check out the other costumes you should have thought of here.

There were other activities going on this weekend besides Halloween, of course. The Latte Art Throwdown at Coffee Groundz pitted baristas against one another.

While the third annual Texas Big Beat brought hundreds of drummers together for charity. Drums as far as the eye can see are here.

But there was still Halloween a-plenty in the rest of the city, such as at the Erotic Halloween Ball at Temptations Lounge and the night-long party at the Roxy.
