Been zombie-drunk before? That feeling where you're nowhere and everywhere at once? It's not the spinning effect -- that means you're going to throw up. It's like your brain is dead -- in a good way. With shoulders hunched over, you might be drooling. All that's cool -- when you're zombie-drunk. Now, you get your chance to do sober what lushes have been doing since the creation of moonshine! But no one's asking you to be sober; this is a zombie walk, after all, housed in the drinking depot called downtown Fort Lauderdale. The Fort Lauderdale Zombie Walk
starts out at 8 p.m. Friday at the Green Room nightclub (109 SW Second Ave., Fort Lauderdale). Downtown Fort Lauderdale is no stranger to the zombie. Now, that sad, lone girl who normally stumbles that acute square along Second Street will be embraced with hundreds of zombies, all dressed in full zombie attire, including makeup. The colossal, costumed walk will have you raiding through Riverfront and "Himshire Village." Severed limbs will be hidden along the trail -- find those limbs and claim those prizes later that night at the Green Room. You'll be judged during the shuffle: best zombie, best walk, best groans, and best all around zombie will also be awarded prizes from the bar and Tate's Comics. There will be a shooting range. On a wall near the entrance, you'll shoot zombie targets with paintball guns -- yeah, you're a zombie killing other zombies; that's heavy.
Friday nights at the Green Room are a dark dance night called Black Fridays. Here, there will be drink specials as resident DJs LinderSMASH! and Kaos spin some ghostly tunes. The walk and dance night are free. A makeup artist -- Body Art by Keegan -- will be creating killer zombie looks from 10 to 11 p.m. at the Green Room -- and that cost depends on what you want.
