Happy Halloween from JD Systems!
published onOctober 31, 2011

Where are you spending Halloween night? If you’re like many New Yorkers, you’ll be out having a few snacks and drinks with friends at a venue that uses audio video to create a spooky scene. (And those AV systems might just have been installed by us!)

Most of the hottest parties happened Halloween weekend — Friday, Saturday and maybe even Sunday.

Z Two Celebrates All Weekend

Crowds gathered, in costume, to win prizes at Staten Island’s Z-Two on Saturday and Sunday night, and were treated to a host of new audio video upgrades (we’ll share more details later, but check out this glowing flat screen… http://www.facebook.com/photo.php?fbid=286152818082587&set=pu.143794108985126&type=1&theater ).

Park East Invites the Kids

Park East gave away $1000 in cash and prizes with their costume content on Saturday night during a party sponsored by Stoli, with vodka drink and bottle specials. But they’re saving a little bit of the party for tonight, when they’re offering half-price sushi, letting kids in costume eat free and hosting another, more family-friendly costume party, too. Winners will take home $500 in cash and prizes. And don’t forget to stick around after dinner to watch the Chiefs and Chargers on more than 100 (we’re starting to lose count) hi-def screens.

Audio Video Makes It Happen

Whether you’re watching the game, going retro with a Thriller video, or just watching eerie lights cast shadows on the wall as people in vampire teeth deliver drinks, audio video plays a crucial role in transforming nightclubs, bars, restaurants and ultra-lounges for Halloween.

The usual Monday night football scene becomes a spooky fantasy-land tonight with the right music and lighting. It’s not just about serving gummy worm ice cubes in the drinks or dressing all in black… Halloween becomes another occasion to give people an experience at your venue better than they can get anywhere else. To get them thinking. To get them talking. To give them an escape.

Maybe people could do this at home (check out how this family transformed their garage into a haunted house), but most people don’t want to. They just want to live it, seamlessly. And we’re here to create that experience.

So, it’s officially October 31. Happy Halloween!

Now, are you ready for Christmas?
