Haunted High Tea

@ The Whitney

The Whitney’s annual Halloween Celebration may already be sold out, but their Haunted High Tea is not. This is a treat that you can bring the kiddos along for (adult tickets are $50, and children 10 and under are $30). The Whitney’s special guest, Dracula, will be in attendance, and guests will receive a special “spooky gift.”

Monster’s Ball

@ The Fillmore

Monster’s Ball is back at the Fillmore once more with stilt-walkers, illusionists, acrobats, and more. Local DJs like Al Neon and Tommy Holiday keep the party going with sick tunes until 2 a.m. Also, if you’re a student at Wayne State, bring your student idea and you can take a free shuttle from the Dunkin Donuts on campus.

Nightmare on Woodward: Returns…

@ Bleu

In the words of Destiny’s Child, “The club is jumpin’ jumpin’.” This is exactly why you need to be at Bleu on Oct. 29. In addition to the many DJs who will be spinning until 4 a.m., there will be live performances by LuveLovesYou and the Native. To add to the fun, there will be a costume contest. Don’t forget Bleu’s dress code, though — you’ve got to look your best to get in. General admission is $10.
