The Starlite is a 1950s American Style Diner - is there really any other era the American Diner is styled in - It has the whole Arnold's thing going on. The diner has stainless steel plating throughout. The counter has malt shop stools - Pictures of Classic Cars, Elvis and other Icons adorn the walls. The Menu is big on Burgers, Sandwiches, and the Classic Milkshake - and of course they serve breakfast all day and they even have Bacon.
To properly celebrate the Halloween weekend the Starlite dressed itself up with Jack-O-Lanterns, Blood, Cobwebs and Caskets. The festive Staff was costumed as well - Waiters and Waitresses were dressed as Vampires, Cats, Nurses, and Nuns. There was a TV near our booth that had one of the Scream Movies playing - It had a bunch of the principals but we never figured out which one it was.
remains one of my favorite holidays and I was afraid that the occasion would not be marked while we were in - The Starlite was definitely a pleasant surprise.
I am not sure has an entire grasp of what Halloween is, but they do know how it is portrayed in Movies - and they also have a grasp of how adults celebrate Halloween. One of the Moscow Alt-Weekly's (yes Moscow has at least two Alt-Papers that are in English) had a full page of Club party listings for the big weekend. An article described Halloween as a Holiday designed for Women to dress up in outfits they would never wear in public...Unless they were a Muscovite.
