Do you prefer ghouls to cupids? Blood to chocolate? Dead flowers to red roses? The 16th annual Anti-Valentine’s Day Masque: Endless Night Vampire Ball of New York is for all you creatures of the night (goths, steampunks, fetishists, latex lovers—anything goes). The traveling Endless Night masquerade happens throughout the year all over the world and was ranked No. 1 in the world by TripAdvisor in 2010 for their party at the House of Blues in New Orleans. Come with an open mind and a bad-ass costume and enjoy the show—from burlesque and belly dancers to opera singers and live bands. No casual street wear, regular club wear, or cotton T-shirts—Endless Night wants pagan horned gods, satanic sluts, zombies, evil clowns, and, of course, vampires. After all, what better time than Valentine’s to bring the freak out of your lover?
