As it neared the end of October, the approach of All Hallows Eve was looming over Hutchesons; it was once again time to ‘Meet The Widow’!
Described as “One of the hottest Halloween parties in the UK” by Marie Claire, the second instalment of this ghoulishly glamorous event did not disappoint. Transforming Hutchesons City Grill into a decadent yet eerie haunted mansion, Rusk & Rusk teamed up with Veuve Clicquot once again to present Glasgow with the most outrageous Halloween party of the year.
Giving the guests a real scary welcome, James Rusk kicked off the night with amazing energy and in true Rusk & Rusk fashion. With a ‘Day of the Dead Masquerade’ themed makeover, staff and guests truly embraced the theme and went all out to look stylishly spooky. Starting off the night with an amazing 3 course dinner, guests were treated to some amazing dishes, including deliciously smooth Curried Cauliflower and succulent Slow Cooked Crispy Ox Tongue, all topped with a crisp glass of Veuve Clicquot.
As the night progressed, visitors were treated to some first class entertainment, including creepy actors, a Thriller flash mob and a tarot reader. There was also a pause in amongst all of the excitement for a Day of the Dead procession, where everyone honoured the dead and rose a glass to the first lady of champagne, Widow Clicquot. This was then rounded off with an incredible performance from an authentic Mariachi band!
Our resident DJ Elisha then played us into the rest of the night with a mix of haunted hits, disco, house and funk, where the glasses of veuve continued to flow. Rusk & Rusk smashed this event once again, by going even scarier and bolder than last year, and it’s safe to say, everyone left tantalizingly spooked and filled to the brim with the finest quality food and champagne.
