In The Midst Of Chaos And Devastation, Hollywood Celebrities Party
Hurricane Sandy didn't stop Bette Midler's extravagant Halloween bash!
It was definitely a scary 48 hours for the inhabitants of New York.
But now that Hurricane Sandy has moved away from the East Coast, it's back to business for most New Yorkers, including Bette Midler.
The veteran actress and singer continued her life as usual and celebrated her yearly extravagant celebrity 'Hulaween' bash on Wednesday night in the storm-struck city.
Despite the fact that Lower Manhattan is still without power, Bette managed to find a venue uptown which did have electricity: The Waldorf Astoria hotel.
Al Gore was invited but couldn't make it. Global warming...
In Midler's defense, the party was a fundraiser for a greener New York. I guess they need it now more than ever. I just think it could have waited until the bodies of the hurricane victims got cold.
Pictures below the fold.
