The Justice League's next party will have a Halloween theme

Good news: the Justice League of Street Food is back with another bash. The crew, which includes the Little Orange Rocket, the Inventing Room, Sully's Slice Truck, the Cupcake Truck, Biker Jim's, Steuben's, the Biscuit Bus, Pinche Tacos, Steamin' Demon and the Gastro Cart, will be setting up on Thursday, October 28 from 5 to 10 p.m. in the regular lot on 29th Avenue and Huron Street.

Better news: this party will feature more liquor.

Two bars worth, to be exact. Leopold Bros has joined the party, and the Denver-based distillery will be pouring its apple whiskey (mixed with ginger ale), as well as gin and tonics with a splash of Leopold cranberry liqueur. The Justice League has also brought on a wine distributor, which will offer a selection of whites and reds. The libations will supplement the usual beer selections from the Great Divide Brewing Co.

All those drinks should lubricate socialization on the dance floor, where DJ Bobby C will provide Halloween-themed beats mixed with movie clips to get the crowd moving. And at 9 p.m., Ukelele Loki's Gadabout Orchestra will take the stage, playing a set with the added entertainment of sword walkers and fire breathers.

Since this party aligns with Halloween, the bash is a costume party, and there's plenty of incentive for you to dress up. We'll be announcing just what that incentive is next week here on Cafe Society, as well as details on another contest.
