It’s hard to believe that Halloween isn’t even officially here yet, what with all the people putting up their Christmas trees already. So dress up yourself, dress up your dogs, pour Granny out of her urn and take her along in a Ziploc. It’s time for some ghoulish fun around the city and the more the scarier.
NYLO-WEEN Party: Moulin Rouge
Friday, October 31, 10:00 p.m. Costume Contest

Fuse And Far Between
Friday, October 31, 8:00 – 10:00 p.m.
Don’t feel like driving to Plano? Head downtown for a scary soiree on the rooftop deck at Fuse, featuring the biggest draw in town: 400 pounds of dry ice. Well, we guess that’s a big draw. It was featured on the press release ahead of eight-foot monsters. First place cash prize for best costume is a very cold, very hard $100 cash.

Jamie Lee Curtis at Dallas Women’s Foundation Luncheon
Wednesday, November 5, 12:00 – 1:30 p.m.
