BJs Fun House serves double Halloween trouble

Add this share
“Boys on the bar” isn’t just a slogan at BJ Roosters. It’s a lifestyle. Add that to the Cheshire Bridge mainstay’s reputation for theme parties and special events, and Halloween’s “BJ’s Fun House” weekend was a big win.

Our camera caught costumes running the gamut from high concept to barely there, while the bartenders, entertainers and DJ served up a mood.

BJs also makes quite a name for itself with its full stocked downstairs party space as a rentable special event venue. For Halloween, the monthly Black gay Anubis party crew took over with a Good vs. Evil costume celebration. Those photos appear in the second half of our gallery below.
