Halloween weekend is only a few days away and while you all scramble for last minute costume ideas for the countless parties you’ll be attending from Friday to Wednesday, we’ve taken our time to compile a list of the best events that the US has to offer. For those in the New York area looking to leave the city for their ghoulish weekend, Atlantic City’s HQ nightclub has a handful of events at New Jersey’s own slice of Vegas, including a sexiest outfit contest presented by Zen Freeman. If you choose to stay in the city that never sleeps, make sure to check out what Girls & Boys are cooking up at Webster Hall and Slake or ditch the orange and black for Sensation’s Ocean of White. As always, Las Vegas is bursting at the seams with events, including the stand out late night performance by none other than Richie Hawtin at Marquee Nightclub — but don’t miss DJMag’s #1 DJ in the World, Hardwell, at Hakkasan. Los Angeles boasts its fair share of events as well serving up a sex-fueled Halloween night with Art Department at Sound Nightclub while San Francisco’s Ruby Skye has four nights of the Freak Circus party brand. Choosing an event in Miami is easier said than done with Cedric Gervais’s Halloween Sh!t Show at LIV and Dimiri Vegas and Like Mike at Mansion throughout the weekend but that’s why you need more than one Halloween costume.
