Eleven was a popular costume at The Bends' "Stranger Things" party.



St. Petersburg's beloved (self-described) "dive" bar The Bends hosted a Stranger Things party on Friday. You could call it a success; it seemed like there were more people hanging out outside the place than could have fit into the entire bar.

If you were one of the (seemingly very few) people who weren't there, here's what you missed. 

It was super crowded.


There were a whole lot of Christmas lights (in the Upside Down).


Even costumes made of Christmas lights.


Note the pudding.


And wigs!


Eleven was a popular costume, such as bartender Eleven.


Who served Stranger Things-themed drinks (mmm, Demogorgon).


And institutional Eleven (complete with bloody nose).


Who we need to see again.


Did we mention the DJ was a gender-bending Winona Ryder?


Barb was in the house, too. #JusticeForBarb


As we said, it was super crowded.


Hope you got there early enough to get a Steve mask.
