I loved "gilligan's island"and a party with all the guests dressing up as their favorite character would be fun.(pool and hot tub optional).

another celebration was George Washington Carver Birthday~ godfather of the peanut

The Donner thing reminded me of a friend in college who wrote a fantastic song called "The Donner Dinner Party". Gives a whole new meaning to Donner Kabobs.

Try a Crayola party. It isn't too bizarre but it can be fun. Everybody gets a coloring book and a box of 64 or 96 crayons at the door. Then you just sit back and watch them all become kids again.

RUBIK'S CUBE PARTY
Everyone comes dressed in a single solid color. At designated intervals, everyone has to trade an article of clothing with someone of a different color. Before they can leave the party (or the party is over),they must get all their original colored clothes back.
When we did this we started the intervals at every 30 minutes, but decreased then to 20 then 15 as the party wound down. I also found that using a "sweatshirt/sweatpants/cap" combo worked best to account for the different sizes of the participants.

Some of the more creative parties I've been to in the past included:
Celebrity Airline Mishap Party:
Everybody came as someone famous who had died in an airplane accident. Guessing was half the fun. Luggage with famous people's names was strewn about the front lawn and hanging from the trees. Zombie stewardesses and cabin attendants handed out hors d'eouvres.
Gangsters In Paradise:
Everyone comes dressed as mafia hiding out in Hawaii. Hawaiian shirts, muu-muus and tommie-guns. Accents required. Must also come up with clever nicknames like Legs "Diamondhead" Luciani or "Jimmy the Poi" Vallachi.
Twisted Disney Party:
Everyone came dressed as a twisted Disney character. Each room of the house was decorated as a different Disney attraction, (I think the bathroom had "It's A Small World" playing over and over, which cut down on the wait). We had people dressed as "Captain Ego", "Bumbo The Elephant", "The Pirates of Mendocino", Peter Pan and a knocked-up Wendy, A gay Pirate Hook, characters from "It's a Third World After All", plenty of naughty Snow Whites, Cinderellas and Mousketeers in devil horns. One scantilly-dressed girlfriend came as "The Ultimate E-Ticket Ride".

My Dad (a art teacher, etc.)( not Eli, my "Grandfather") was dying of brain cancer in the VA in Long Beach,Ca., and everyone was trippen hard on it so I got an idea to have a "Art Party" at his house in respect for him. We cleared out the living room,put plastic on the floor and called all his friends and mine (which were his too). We had 100+ quarts and gallons of paint lined up with brushes all along the base boards. Plenty of beer,booze and food too. By the end of the day/night, all the walls and cieling were coverd with color. Everyone who was there painted what they dug about him or what they were feeling, etc. It was a good way to get together and get in a better mood. (Just found an old polaroid of part of a wall.)
The wake was a whole other story. We painted over everything with kiltz and gesso and turned his entire house into a gallery. Of course all pics where of him and we hung lots of paintings and sculptures he did. The "Gallery" was packed! Shoulder room only! Best "one man art show" I've ever seen! Jan. 1993.
