Hella Good Time

4 Halloween parties and happenings to die for


Tomorrow's Halloween. But you knew that. Happens every year, so there's precedent.

What you may not know are the best places to mingle with every variation of the Naughty [Fill in the Blank] costume in town..

Here are quatro.

It wouldn't be Halloween without, well, Halloween. Catch the scariest movie to ever feature an inside-out William Shatner mask. If you start out the night at the Michael Jackson Sing-Along and Dance Party, you'll be ready for pizza, burgers and beer.
Thu 9p. $10
here. Michael Jackson Sing-Along 7p. $12 here. Alamo Drafthouse,100 S. Central Expwy. #14, Richardson (972-534-2120).

Get ready for Deep'oween, a spooky-themed brewery tour. Your treats include a commemorative pint glass, three pint beer tokens, live music by Loyal Sally, and food from Easy Sliders Food Truck. Thirsty Beer Lover sounds like such an easy costume.

Thu 6-9p. Deep Ellum Brewery, 2823 St. Louis St., Deep Ellum (214-888-3322). $12 here.

You don't even need a costume to be a winner at this party. Enjoy $4 drink specials all night and live music from The Roomsounds, playing Tom Petty tunes. With any luck, "
Zombie Zoo" will be one of those.
Thu 8p. 2548 Elm St., Deep Ellum (214-742-3667). No cover.

Thrill your date '50s style, as DJ Mr. Rid spins records for the Haunted Sock Hop. Then stick around for
The Tingler, a schlocky 1959 horror flick about a parasite that lives on the human spine.
Thu 7p Haunted Sock Hop (free). 9p The Tingler, $10 here. The Texas Theatre, 231 West Jefferson Blvd., Oak Cliff (214-948-1546).
