PULSE | The freaks come out this weekend
A Fang-tastic Friday
It’s one of those freaky kinds of weekends that everyone looks forward to once a year — and it kicks off with Fang-tastic Friday with Visage — because absolutely nobody knows how to do a party better.
And all the ghouls and goblins are expected to make an appearance at Fang-tastic Friday, the end-of-month party hosted by the British Colonial Hilton Hotel, The Pointe, Star 106.5 Hits, Visage, Bahamasair and BTC Business. Fang-tastic Friday takes place at the Hilton tonight, and it’s going to be an absolute treat for the person who walks away with a trip to Houston, Texas courtesy of the national airline.
With music by DJ CRX, the question is whether you will let your inner freak out and come dressed to impress in costume, and be able to handle the heat. It’s at Fang-tastic Fridays that you can dance to your favorite old school soca tunes and some of the most popular Bahamian hits while you release work tensions from the past month.
Doors open at 5:30 p.m.; admission is $20, inclusive of a free drink.
At the Atlantis resort
Are you afraid of the dark? If you’re not faint of heart, the Haunted Cave Experience on Saturday, October 28 is a must-do event. There will be scary sights, frequent frights and things that go bump in the night at The Cave, Beach Tower.
Warning: The experience is said to be terrifying and was intended to be. As such the experience is open to children ages nine and over, and all children under age 17 must be accompanied by an adult.
Entry is $15, VAT inclusive, so that you can be scared silly. The haunted cave experience can be had between 7 p.m. and 10:30 p.m.
For your little devils or angels (however you look at them on the day), the Spooktacular Carnival at the Atlantis Kids Adventures is the place to be where little ones between the ages of three and 12 can engage in tricks and treats, and lots of spooky fun with carnival games and prizes. Small children must be fully potty trained and pull-up/diaper free.
The cost is $64.50 VAT inclusive for the Saturday, October 28 event that takes place between 6:30 p.m. and 10:30 p.m.
The grown folks — those 18 and older — are encouraged to don the best costumes they can to party the night away at Toon Town Terror aka the Aura Nightclub for the opportunity to win over $1,000 in giveaways for the best costume.
The party takes place in the bewitching hours between 10 p.m. and 4 a.m. and is cashless. Credit/debit cards and Atlantis gift cards and room charge apply.
At the end of the night, or before evening gets started, take a minute to sink your fangs into Smokey OO7, the Halloween Ice Cream flavor at Sun & Ice, Coral Towers Lobby, because this ghoulish treat has an expiration date of October 31.
At Palm Cay
Looking for an old school kind of scary weekend? It will be a return to the classics with this Halloween “Monsta Funk” — a 70s and 80s themed old school party at Palm Cay Club, Yamacraw Road on Saturday, October 28. The Black Carpet Senior party featuring music by DJ CRX will be hosted by Tanya “The Countess” Cartwright, Hope “Bride of Chucky” Shelly Ann and Tony “Kruger” Williams.
You are encouraged to dress up or down to get funky.
Tickets can be purchased at Dash Designer Shoes, Crave Deli and Airbrush Junkies.
It’s a Bats on Bay Halloween party that is being presented by Bacardi and Lifestylez, for which you are asked to dress in your best, scariest or sexiest costume.
The “doors to the cave” open at 9 p.m. on Saturday, October 28 with patrons getting a free trick or treat shot. A private bar and secret party level will make for an exclusive experience to be had by some patrons.
