Halloween at Roo Nightclub

1 Nov

This weekend was pretty awesome! I have so much to write about… not sure where to begin!

I guess in the spirit of Halloween, I’ll start with the Halloween-y things.

Saturday night we went to Roo nightclub in the Hotel Zone. We didn’t dress up, but almost everybody else was in costume. Jorge, our friends and I sat near  the entrance most of the night, which was a great choice because we got to see all the costumes walking in and out of the place. Later we moved to a table by the dance floor.

Overall, a pretty entertaining night. We were among the oldest people there. In Cancun, the minimum drinking age is 18, but clubs will often let you in if you’re at least 14 or 15… so at 24 years old, I felt ancient. That’s just not right!

Anyway, the people-watching was interesting to say the least. I saw 2 ladybugs making out (boy and girl), Wilma Flintstone crying in a corner and being consoled by Fred, a cavewoman whose mom came to pick her up (she hid from her mom in the bathroom), and some underage girls with their butt cheeks hanging out.

At the end of the night, we all agreed this just might not be our scene anymore. Since we’re older than most people there, 2 of us don’t drink (I had 3 glasses of water) and we’re all married/engaged, there just doesn’t seem to be much to do at a nightclub anymore.

Plus, nightclub music seems to have changed. They used to play awesome music for dancing, like hip hop, reggaeton and salsa. Saturday night, all I heard was pop and techno. Not my favorite.

I felt kinda sad to realize this since I used to be the nightclub queen 5 years ago, but I guess we all have to grow up sometime.

I did get hit on by a mummy, though… so that made me feel a little better 🙂

    Girl, you better stop thinking of yourself as old. You are far far far from it. I love all of the pictures, specially the one of the guy taking a shower. Hope you have a good week.

    They probably wouldn’t even let me in to the nightclub, I’m so old. Oh well! 🙂 And nice work on the mummy – it’s always nice to know you still got it!

    I know how you feel about feeling ancient down there. I live in a college town so the typical age of anyone down at the bars is 21 or 22. At 27 I feel way too old to be there sometimes!

    That guy taking a shower costume is absolutely the best. Ha. And i Know how you feel about being too old fr the nightclubs anymore. Still looks like it was fun night, with good company.

    This is a really nice post. I love how you explain the characters in the club. I agree, it’s a bit of a sad realization when you discover that the things you used to do or think was the bomb in clubbing all of a sudden feel a bit empty or young. That’s generally when you start appreciating those intimate dinners with family and friends.
