Halloween Costume Contest: Dress Like Rocco Mangel
This week, Clean Plate Charlie offered up a list of eight costumes inspired by Florida food and drink for all you Halloween costume procrastinators. The list included sartorial references to craft brews from the Sunshine State, as well as some of our more notable culinary inhabitants, like the spiny lobster and Rocco Mangel of Rocco's Tacos and Tequila Bar . (Easy costume, right? Throw on a bald cap, a button-up shirt, be generous with the tequila shots, and you're set.)
The folks over at Rocco's caught wind of the costume suggestion and have spun it into an impromptu Halloween costume contest hosted on their Facebook page. Take a photo of yourself dressed as Mangel, post it to Facebook, tag Rocco's Tacos and Tequila Bar in the image, and have a chance to win a $250 gift card. To quote the Rocco's Facebook page, "Can't wait to see the best mini-me out there."
As said, this is a super easy costume idea -- though, it does require
some finesse and personality if you want to execute it well; the tequila
Halloween is Monday, so get cracking with that costume and certainly
don't forget the tequila.
