Fetish & Fantasy, Ghouls & Ghosts, Villains & Vixens and Skulls & Skeletons: It’s a wicked weekend with four days of Halloween horrors. The 21st Annual Fetish & Fantasy Halloween Ball on Saturday at The Hard Rock Hotel proudly screams Freaks & Fire Breathers with a Human Petting Zoo and Zombies and Grinders & Goblins.
My favorite, though, will be The Rocky Horror Block Party on Monday that ends the monthlong fright fest at Fremont Street Experience. The freaky fun starts tonight with former Motley Crue rocker Nikki Sixx at T-Mobile Arena with Five Finger Death Punch and Shinedown, then his after-party at Ashba in The Stratosphere.
Don’t stay home Sunday because The Squad Up villains of nightlife will hunt you down for their Halloween horrors at Hyde Bellagio. Add Steve Aoki on Friday and Monday and Puff Daddy on Saturday at Jewel in Aria for its first Halloween, plus porn princesses Joanna Angel and Asa Akira hosting Wicked Ball at Chateau at Paris Las Vegas, and it’s a star-studded party to rival New Year’s Eve.
Kanye West is here, so wife Kim Kardashian West might just be lurking in a creative costume to sweep us all off our feet with the wicked witch’s broom. Scott Disick hosts a $10,000 costume contest at his “American Psycho”-themed party at 1OAK in the Mirage. Lil Wayne spins at Foxtail in SLS Las Vegas and Tiesto and Calvin Harris are joined by The Chainsmokers at Hakkasan in MGM Grand.
The nightclubs at Wynn and Encore have joined forces to create an Alice-inspired Wynnderland with Mad Tea Party, Queen’s Garden and Rabbit Hole. Lavo at The Palazzo turns brunch Saturday into a Heaven and Hell party, and its parent, Tao, offers French Montana and DJ Eric D-Lux for its costume contests. Sister club Marquee in The Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas has the Vegas Horror Story bash in Marquee Dayclub Dome that opens this weekend for Season 4.
The temperature-regulating dome covers the dayclub, so partygoers can enjoy the expanded revelry of the pool all year long every Saturday and select holiday Sundays. 50 Cent, T.I and Fetty Wap are the star-studded trio at Drai’s atop The Cromwell. Omnia at Caesars Palace presents its Rise of the Phantom Party, and Scott Storch presides over the Vampires & Villains nightmare at LAX in The Luxor on Saturday.
Hidden in the haunted Halloween listings that follow, you also will find music gems with Lainie Kazan and Johnny Mathis singing at The Smith Center for the Performing Arts that round out the weekend, so let’s shake the skeletons and crawl through the spider’s web for this week’s Robin’s Royal Rundown:
