As we approach the end of January, like most people, your New Year’s Resolutions have fallen by the way side. January 20th is the day most people tend to cave and give into temptation, resorting back to their old behavioral patterns.

We have good intentions; however, the idea of designating a specific date and time to go cold turkey on an emotional crutch is preposterous. This is an equation for failure if you ask me. So instead of sulking and showering yourself with disappointment, let’s try another approach.

Call up some vampire-loving friends, dust off the martini glasses, get out the candles and open bar! If you have to justify it with a holiday, Valentine’s Day is rearing its ugly head around the corner and not everyone is keen on the idea of spending it gushing over a current or potential love interest.

To make the evening more fun make sure to say vampire attire is a mandatory. The vampire theme is entertaining, distinctive and will be just what the doctor ordered for a fun filled night of bloody bedlam. To make your party a hit try our top recommended Vampire Drinks!
