New York City. Halloween. The possibilities are endless. This year, Sleep No More captured my attention. Following the Halloween performances of this year’s show, the hotel hosted an Egyptian-themed party called The Curse of the Mummy.
Equipped with an open bar operated by beautifully toned, golden clad bartenders, The Curse of the Mummy didn’t have much of a shot at failure. Other nuances only served to enhance the party’s exotic theme, including a sand-covered dance floor, giant hieroglyphic drawings and what can best be described as a psuedo-tight-rope mummy. Packed with guests shrouded in every imaginable donning of the “bizarre of the bazaar,” Sleep No More’s The Curse of the Mummy easily created an intoxicating atmosphere conducive to the already supernatural feeling of the holiday itself.
