Goblins and Ghouls + Fun

DIY Peacock
It's that time of year again when you have an excuse to act like a kid, eat like a kid, and maybe even wear a kid-size shirt. Halloween falls on a Monday this year which just means it's become a four-day party. Having trouble filling in those days? It might be too late to visit Vegas or dance at Hard unless you're willing to spend an exorbitant amount, but no worries; there's never a shortage of things to do in LA.

So what do you do when you're too old for trick-or-treating? Remember that you're NEVER too old for candy.

Go for a night dive at the Aquarium of the Pacific which includes bands, DJs and tons of fish. It's on the 28th for $13. (via Aquarium of the Pacific)

The Egyptian Theater will be throwing its third annual King Tut's Tomb party on the 28th. Prices start at $20, but will increase tonight. (via Our Night Life)

If you want to party with Playmates (and Madame Tussaud’s wax figurines), there's two costume balls steps away from each other at Hollywood and Highlands. Medina will be performing. Event's on the 29th for $90 which includes open bar and buffet. (via Thrillist Rewards) General admission starts at $30 for just the Playboy party. (via Our Night Life)

Premiere Supperclub has their own Saints & Sinners Ball for $23 with open bar from 9-11PM. Also on the 29th. (via Clubzone)

On the 30th, Maxim is holding a Masquerade Ball at Supperclub Hollywood. Prices start at $50 (via Our Night Life)

Here's a fuller link of nightclubs and pub crawls.

For those who like to start celebrating during the day, Groupon is offering a $15 deal, which includes a bratwurst and beer, for an Ocktoberfest at Old World Village in Huntington Beach. Ticket is valid for the 28th-30th, but the deal ends tonight so hurry! (via Groupon)

A list of the area's best haunted houses is ready for those who like to scare themselves silly. (via The Rundown)

Here's something a bit different. There's a Boozy Scavenger Hunt with a small afterparty if you're interested. Happening on the 29th during the afternoon for $25. (via Thrillist Rewards)

The streets of West Hollywood at night are always fun on the 31st if you just want to walk around and gawk at costumes. A few years ago, I remembered being hugged by no less than 10 very friendly people. There's usually musical performances throughout the night.

Most theme parks, shopping centers, etc. will probably have something Halloween-related if none of this is working out or you could throw your own costume party, which is always exciting. Just make sure it doesn't feel like you live with party cat by Tuesday morning.
