Fiesta Friday (On A Monday) - Love At First Bite

Ok, I'm not a Twihard or a Twilighter (apparently there is a difference!), I only watched the movies through sheer peer pressure, and they aren't that bad. However, I've always thought vampires were cool, looooonnnngggg before the appearance of Twilight. Hello, Buffy? Interview With A Vampire? Love At First Bite? Come on, George Hamilton as a tanned vampire?

Vampires are (again) the new black with shows like True Blood (love it!), The Vampire Diaries (love it more!) and the latest, ABC's The Gates, a cross between the aforementioned and Desperate Housewives...eh.

I thought it was about time I shared some amazing ideas that are perfect for those of you breathlessly awaiting the release of Eclipse, already planning for Halloween, or having friends over for a vampire movie night they can sink their teeth into. Badum-bum.

Devil's Food Cake. Deviled Eggs. Bloody Marys. You get the picture.
