A Costume Boogie

This Friday night, don’t be surprised if you spot Spider-Man grinding a sexy anime character at Fort Lauderdale indie club Green Room. Why, you ask? Because it is the last Friday of the month, when the downtown haunt hosts its Cos-Play Fridays. On any other given Friday, Green Room reserves its cozy confines for Black Fridays, a night dedicated to darker new-wave rave-ups. During Cos-Play Fridays, however, the tunes stay the same, but the garb is entirely different, as the crowd comes dressed as their favorite characters from comic books, videogames, films, and Japanese animation. This week, there is even a theme. Coinciding with the premiere of the revamped British science fiction series, frisky cos-players are encouraged to come outfitted in Doctor Who-themed gear. Get two-for-one drinks for all before midnight, as the Time Lords and humanoid aliens gather about. The kinky costume fun starts at 10 p.m. at the Green Room, located at 109 SW Second Ave. in Fort Lauderdale. Free to attend. Visit facebook.com/GreenRoomFTL, or call 954-449-1030.
