    I want to go and get spooky because Halloween is my favorite holiday and I haven’t had a really rockin’ one for a couple years.

  7. kim October 5, 2010 at 10:44 pm #

    Nothing beats Halloween -well, except maybe one that’s a little more Bent than the rest!!!

  8. Zee October 6, 2010 at 12:00 am #

    I would hate to miss Portland’s biggest Halloween party.

  9. CB October 6, 2010 at 12:41 am #

    I would bring the An amazing costume along with a woman who has done horror costuming makeup professionally

  10. Jackie October 6, 2010 at 6:09 am #

    This sounds amazing and I would love to attend. One of my best friends ls coming up and this would be a perfect Portland Halloween!

  11. Blake October 6, 2010 at 10:01 am #

    Costumes? Parties? I love anything Halloween related!

  12. DiAnna Conda October 6, 2010 at 10:48 am #

    I would love tickets! I’m bent myself, so it’s blatantly obvious that I should be at “Bent”.

  13. Miranda October 6, 2010 at 11:45 am #

    I would love tickets… Halloween is my favorite holiday. I love dressing up and becoming someone else for the night, it always makes this (me) high school English teacher feel a bit more scandalous and mysterious. I already have a costume and am prepared for some fun… not it’s just time for an event… :) Pick me, pick me.

  14. maren October 6, 2010 at 11:54 am #

    My boyfriend is going to be the love child of Gene & Richard Simmons. What could be more in the spirit of Bent and Halloween at the same time?

  15. Ariana October 6, 2010 at 7:18 pm #

    this would be an amazing event to attend !!!

    • Patrick Hyde October 8, 2010 at 9:28 am #

      I would love to surprise my fiancee with tickets to such a great sounding party!
      We both love Halloween and our first one together last year was a horrendous flop!
      This would be a fantastic opportunity to make up for it!!

      • Erika October 8, 2010 at 9:38 am #

        This is right by my house – within stumbling distance – I love love love Halloween and wish I could dress up EVERY daay and I think this is a FABulous cause!! What better reason to dress up! Kudos to you and your cause!

    Pick me…

    It’s astounding, time is fleeting
    Madness takes its toll
    But listen closely, not for very much longer
    I’ve got to keep control

    I remember doing the TIme Warp
    Drinking those moments when
    The blackness would hit me and the void would be calling
    Let’s do the time warp again…
    Let’s do the time warp again!

    It’s just a jump to the left
    And then a step to the right
    With your hands on your hips
    You bring your knees in tight
    But it’s the pelvic thrust that really drives you insane,
    Let’s do the Time Warp again!

    It’s so dreamy, oh fantasy free me
    So you can’t see me, no not at all
    In another dimension, with voyeuristic intention
    Well-secluded, I see all
    With a bit of a mind flip
    You’re there in the time slip
    And nothing can ever be the same
    You’re spaced out on sensation, like you’re under sedation
    Let’s do the Time Warp again!

    Well I was walking down the street just a-having a think
    When a snake of a guy gave me an evil wink
    He shook me up, he took me by surprise
    He had a pickup truck and the devil’s eyes.
    He stared at me and I felt a change
    Time meant nothing, never would again
    Let’s do the Time Warp again!

    Halloween is one of my favorite holidays, and the favorite of my partner. I haven’t been to a Halloween party in a decade, and we would both LOVE to be able to attend this. However, these college students are strapped for cash : (

  34. Literati October 11, 2010 at 10:18 am #

    I have 5 brilliant Halloween costume ideas this year, but nowhere to go. Save me from having to get all dressed up just to strut through Safeway. This event would be perfect!

  35. alison October 15, 2010 at 6:24 pm #

    I would love free tickets because my friends and I are being a murder of crows for halloween and we want to show off our awesome masks.

  36. Kathy October 18, 2010 at 1:42 pm #

  38. Hannah October 24, 2010 at 11:12 pm #

    After many years of looking for a place where I “fit”, I am so thrilled to be a part of Portland’s accepting community, and to have a partner who is completely okay with my bi-sexuality! Halloween is our favorite holiday, and I’d love to surprise him with tickets to a sexy, classy party!
