1. Bette Midler’s Hulaween 2008

Every year, the renowned actress hosts an over-the-top Halloween party where the dress is “costumes or else” to raise much-needed funding for her New York Restoration Project, but the dancing diva outdid herself in 2008. During cocktails, guests like Martha Stewart, John McEnroe, Pink, and Jimmy Buffet were treated to an assortment of appetizers prepared on-site by chefs like April Bloomfield, David Chang, Tom Colicchio, Fergus Henderson, and Jonathan Waxman. Michael Kors, as always, judged costumes; Alice Waters of Chez Panisse fame was awarded the “Wind Beneath My Wings” award, and Gloria Estefan and the Miami Sound Machine finished off the night with an unforgettable concert. This year, you too can attend and rub elbows with guests like Carmelo Anthony, enjoy a menu crafted by the one and only Rick Bayless, and dance along to music icon Stevie Wonder.
