It was a dark and scary night for Spencer Hoyt’s Halloween bash held at Debbey Ryan’s Lafayette party pad. MG Designs spooked out the house for the festive event, while Party Central converted the indoor pool into a clear plexiglass dance floor. Some 250 friends danced the night away to tunes spun by DJ Coury Moss and Super Dave. Libations included a special blend of Halloween creep and witches brew served via ice luge. Contest winners included Mindy Gromer for sexiest costume, Anna Goodson, Ashley Cutrera, Kate Wynne and Dylan Cutrera as evangelical Mormons for best costume, and Seth Gilmore as Swamp “Shoot em” People for funniest costume.
