Burlesque Haunted House Halloween
The Brixton, 901 U St., NW
A sprinkle of burlesque makes everything better — kinda like Bacon Bits. Here, one can join DJ Beast, Derick Atkins, Synz, Team Zapata and Joe L on the rocking rooftop, or inside, where the ladies of Glam Gamz and Dainty will be gettin' their burlesque on. Meanwhile, the second floor will be transformed into a haunted house, er, floor. Whichever party you choose, be sure to come costumed and ready.
