10/30: Freak Show

Tomorrow may be "real" Halloween, but tonight is the night to play dress up

1.21 GIGAWATTS! The Living Room at the W Fort Lauderdale will be transformed into a time warp, where, for $60, guests get an open bar and tunes by DJ Kevin Graham. 9 P.M.-midnight.

READY FREDDY? At Cafeina in Wynwood, it's a Nightmare on 23rd Street, complete with a costume contest (winner gets a trip to the Big Easy for Mardi Gras) and complimentary SoCo shots, which is sure to turn any Freddy Krueger into Marilyn Monroe by the end of the night. 8 P.M.-3 A.M.

WHAT THE HELL: You always looked good in red, so we think you'll love Save Dade's Hellrotika, which will feature a costume contest, tunes and performances by Rainbow Circus and Shameless Burlesque.

HIALEAH HALLOWEEN: As if Miami's Bermuda Triangle isn't scary enough, tonight there will be art, performances and music from some of Miami's most creative ghouls and goblins. $3 and a costume gets you in and free beer. The Annex, 9811 NW 80th Ave., #7-D. 9 P.M.

GOTH TALK: No one puts on a Halloween party like the Raleigh, and this year should be no different. Gatsby Gone Goth is the theme, and you'll be treated to live performances, DJs and complimentary cocktails from 9-10 P.M.

HALLOWEEN AT THE HERZOG: Lincoln Road is always a must-stop for the costume savvy and those who love them. This year, though, avoid the cluster-eff and head upward - to the rooftop of the Herzog & de Meuron Building at 1111 Lincoln Road. Open bar, costume contest, treats, fortune tellers and, of course, DJs, are all on tap. 9 P.M.-2 A.M. 

OH, THE HORROR: What would Halloween be without a screening of the Rocky Horror Picture Show? Gusman's doing the honors, so put on your best tranny attire and head downtown. Afterparty at Grand Central, where NYC's Eclectic Method performs. 8 P.M.

MASQUERADE MOTEL: That's the theme for this Halloween shindig, which will take place inside a 54,000-square-foot arena built just for this event. Live performances by Swedish House Mafia and Brazilian Girls make for a thriller night. 3 P.M.-Midnight.

WE WANT CANDY: Like your Halloween more sweet than scary? Head to the Mondrian Hotel for their Candyland-themed party, which will feature music by Brooklyn Dawn and complimentary caipirinhas from 10-11 P.M.
