Halloween Party at Club Rep

Lydia found us a sweet Halloween party sponsored by Webster University's Repertory Theatre of St. Louis.

It was awesome for multiple reasons. First of all, every single part of it was free. I was a little hesitant to get excited about it because it was so cool that I figured that there must be some kind of catch.

Not only did they have a ton of complimentary snacks, but they had a theatre company's production values. Everything looked like a lot of care went into making it. I mean who among you has seen such a beautiful tray of cinnamon rolls with icing made to look like intestines?

I was also excited because it meant I could wear my hotdog costume again.

You see, "In economics, fixed costs, indirect costs or overheads are business expenses that are not dependent on the level of goods or services produced by the business. They tend to be time-related, such as interest or rents being paid per month, and are often referred to as overhead costs. This is in contrast to variable costs, which are volume-related (and are paid per quantity produced) and unknown at the beginning of the accounting year. For a simple example, such as a bakery, the monthly rent for the baking facilities, and the monthly payments for the security system and basic phone line are fixed costs, as they do not change according to how much bread the bakery produces and sells. On the other hand, the wage costs of the bakery are variable, as the bakery will have to hire more workers if the production of bread increases. Economists reckon fixed cost as an entry barrier for new entrepreneurs."

"In management accounting, fixed costs are defined as expenses that do not change as a function of the activity of a business, within the relevant period. For example, a retailer must pay rent and utility bills irrespective of sales. In marketing, it is necessary to know how costs divide between variable and fixed costs. This distinction is crucial in forecasting the earnings generated by various changes in unit sales and thus the financial impact of proposed marketing campaigns. In a survey of nearly 200 senior marketing managers, 60 percent responded that they found the "variable and fixed costs" metric very useful."

As we descended the stairs from the lobby there was a girl handing out free jello shots that came in syringes. This was my kind of place.

Someone went to the trouble of sticking googly eyes onto all of these cups!

The music was rad as well. There was a DJ but at times he would play the sax over it. Insane that this was free.

Pumpkin vomit veggie tray? Check.

There was a free tarot card reader!?
