KCRW'S Halloween Masquerade
Last year's bash may have been unprecedented, but KCRW is about to out-do themselves by throwing another costume party at the Park Plaza. There will, of course, be all the KCRW house DJ's and totally decked-out Halloween-themed rooms, but what we are looking forward to the most are the performances by The Duke Spirit (they're hauntingly good) and Cut Chemist. And if you want to mellow out, walk down to the basement-turned-underground 1930's jazz club for some sweet crooning.
Fangtasia: A True Blood Weekend
True Blood fans, gather over to Rush Street in Culver City for an all-night blood fest. The entire restaurant will be transformed into all things Fangtasia—beer pong tables with a True Blood twist and 2-for-1 drinks; but sorry, the only Sookie and Bill who will be there are the Fangbagers who will come dressed as them.
Teach Me How to Chucky @ the Standard Downtown LA
If you're looking for a chill place to dress up, listen to good music, (avoid the L.A. traffic) and dance the night away, walk up to the rooftop at the Standard in downtown L.A. A revolving door of DJs, sweeping views of the city, and dropdead gorgeous people will make for one freaky night.
WeHo Carnival Parade
The West Hollywood Carnival is as much of a holiday tradition as the Tournament of Roses, with just as many queens in sequins and wigs riding the floats. Santa Monica Boulevard will be shut down as usual for the biggest march of the most innovative, creative, and always fabulous Halloween costumes ever. Go bar hopping and get some treats.
