Halloween might seem like soooo last Friday. But for young professional revelers at the Petroleum Club, this final spook fest in the club's venerable home will resonate for years. The club moves to news digs in January and the last ever party there will be on New Year's Eve.

Halloween Bash founder Magan M. Hunt orchestrated the fifth annual event for the Young Professionals Association of the Petroleum Club with a theme of " Voodoo Mystere."

The entertainment included voodoo skeleton divas dancing on light boxes, African voodoo dancers and  adult cookies and milk.

The club that has been the setting over the decades for high-powered energy industry maneuvers, wedding receptions, anniversaries and birthdays was transformed into a moss-draped, cobwebbed scene complete with swamp-like trees lighted in hazy green. Since its inception, this has been one of the most elaborately decorated Halloween parties.

So as not to let the deliciously creepy decor dampen the mood, a giant disco ball twirled overhead while DJ Joe spun the tunes and Jell-O martinis were served with vodka-soaked gummy worms. The entertainment included voodoo skeleton divas dancing on light boxes, African voodoo dancers, adult cookies and milk (actually macaroons paired with Marc Danielle Orange Liquor) and a costume contest.

And how about the candy bar for Trick or Treat take home goodies? Louisiana-flavored fare was provided by Chef Manuel.

Winning the various costume competitions were Amy and David Bahlo as Fitness Barbie and G.I. Joe, Bruce Brodie as a voodoo priest, Alice Edwards as a voodoo doll, Lyle Boudreaux as the vampire Lestat, Stephanie Sniscak as a flapper, Roaxana Tamijana and Michael Poskey as Wendy Davis and Greg Abbott, James Frankowski as a voodoo doll and Natalya Read as Maleficent.
