Exclusive: Drunken Devil Celebrates Halloween in LA With BACCHANALIA
The Halloween season is thrilling for many not just because of all the spooky decorations they get to hang or the 31-Days-Of-Halloween movie challenges they set for themselves. It also affords opportunities to go to events that aren’t normally available during the rest of the year. Places like Universal Studios offer Halloween Horror Nights. Haunted Houses appear for a month of startling experiences. Even local farms get in on the action with haunted hayrides, corn mazes, and more. Personally, I’m all about going to my local cider mill for a hot cup of spiced apple cider and a warm donut (plain, not sugared).
For those in the Los Angeles area, the experiences are seemingly endless, which makes sense considering the size of the city as well as population. If you’ve got enough people, you’re gonna have enough events to go around. So how do you know what to choose versus what to pass on? Well, we may not have the definitive answer for you BUT we certainly are here to help suggest an event or two. Which is why we today are breaking the news of a rather fantastic sounding event called Bacchanalia, which is hosted by Drunken Devil.
The description for the event promises, “…a wild evening inspired by both the sadistic rule of Caligula and the hedonistic Roman festivals of Bacchus. Drunken Devil’s current party series explores the seven deadly sins, with characters based off each, and Bacchanalia will focus on Caligula as the embodiment of “Gluttony,” with attendees immersing themselves in an interactive storyline and indulging in a feast for the senses.”
There will also be burlesque acts from Erin Bridges, Olivia Bellafontaine, Miss Marquez, Brynn Route, and international burlesque performer, Miss Miranda. In addition, the event will feature strolling magic from Academy of Magical Arts Member Jackson Ridd and mystic Zac Young, and dance to the dark disco stylings of DJ Kerry and DJ James Jordan.
“With Drunken Devil, we strive to create the ideal horror nightlife atmosphere and Bacchanalia aims to be our most indulgent and haunting event to date as we bring the audience into the center of drama and intrigue of Caligula’s court,” stated Matt Dorado, Founder and Executive Producer of Drunken Devil. “The festivals of Bacchus were some of the first recorded wild parties in history, and we welcome everyone to indulge in sin, and celebrate Halloween with this dark spin on the original sinful soiree!”
The event will take place on Saturday, October 13 at an undisclosed location that will be revealed to ticket holders on October 12. Very mysterious indeed!
Guests are encouraged to dress to impress with formalwear fit for Roman gods, but please note Bacchanalia is not a toga party. Welp, John Belushi is officially disappointed in everyone associated.
Tickets for the event run $85 and can be purchased right here.
