Gemini & Scorpio, the outrageous theme-party promoters behind the Lost Circus and the Titanic-themed Drowned Ball, are experts of Halloween. Tonight, they return with the fourth annual Masquerade Macabre Halloween Ball, a night of skeleton dancers, burlesque, aerialists, fortune telling, live music, and dancing on two floors. Gemini & Scorpio suggest your look be “dark and creepy,” so for inspiration, think Brothers Quay films, Tim Burton characters, and steampunk. For $30, get access to the VIP absinthe den, which opens an hour early, at 9:30.
