Bette Midler knows how to rock.

We expect the unexpected on Halloween in NYC, right (especially if you attend the Christopher Street parade)! - But we all know it will probably involve cross-dressing, nudity, drunkenness, and cops... whether real or just in costume (like the creepy old man who hit on me last night). Well, I at least hope he was not a real cop. 

But I don't think anyone ever expects Bette Midler, stain removal kits, organic cookbooks, and the Waldorf=Astoria. This is what happens when you have friends in high places (interning at Walt Disney, that is). 

So as it turns out, Bette Midler knows how to rock. And I hear Gloria Estefan is not too shabby either. After the ritzy Halloween dinner party for the super VIPs (they forgot to put my name on the list), we had free passes to a chic after party in the grand ballroom at the Waldorf. Lots of costumes... but maybe a few too many Hank Paulsons. Open bar all night, live DJ and gambling. 

An overall great night with great friends, free booze, and fun costumes. And the gift bag? A stain removal kit and an organic cookbook: Come to the Table: The Slow Food Way of Living. 

... because it's normal to hand out cookbooks on Halloween. Not bad, Bette, not bad.
