Best Party That's Been Around For a While 

Honey Soundsystem

It's sometimes hard to believe that Honey Soundsystem is now 8 years old, but it is. In that span of time, a lot has changed — the queer DJ party outfit has switched venues, it's gone from weekly to irregular, and it's gained and lost some members — but one thing has remained the same: Honey's dedication to throwing a really good party. Paramount to that is its decorations, which are so elaborate that they transport the club experience to a higher level. Just this year, Honey has thrown parties themed after a gym (complete with a cartoonishly big pull-down bar and weights) and an apocalyptic street scene (police lights, trash cans, and caution tape). It's nightlife as installation art and vice versa. In the process, Honey Soundsystem has left just about everyone else in the dust.
