This weekend is all about channeling your inner demons. And scary clowns. And sexy kittens. And a Halloween Whopper.

It's Halloween weekend and that means dressing up and having a great time with friends. If you're still in need of a costume, might we suggest this amazing Halloween Whopper/sexy green poop combo? In any event, be safe and have fun. And, as I was once told by a bartender in New Orleans one night: How do you stop a vampire from following you home? Tip him.

Admission is free. Visit scratched360.com for details.

This is the place to see the most elaborate costumes in Miami.

This free block party invites you to hang out with your favorite ghouls and enjoy a DJ mixing live while classic horror films play on a giant 240-inch screen. At 10 p.m., do the Time Warp as HalloWyn showcases The Rocky Horror Picture Show. Dress in your finest, weirdest, or sexiest for a chance to win the $500 grand prize in the costume contest.
