The retro-tiki haven Five Points Lounge is gearing up for Halloween by welcoming all Fort Lauderdale ghastly ghouls and sideshow freaks to the "Kreepy Circus." On hand will be the live music of Lonewolf and erotic burlesque enchantresses the Reckless Dames. Entertainment continues with fire dancers, snake charmers, and tattooed ladies roaming about. Outdoors will be transformed into a carny wonderland, complete with a plethora of carnival games. Gourmet hot dogs by Frankie Dogs will be available alongside the devilish sweets of the Cake Stand and Five Points' own 50-plus craft beers. Costumed circusgoers are welcomed but not required, but keep faux (and real) blood to a minimum to avoid attracting vampires.
Five Points Lounge's "Kreepy Circus" opens at 9 p.m. Thursday. Admission costs $6 for those 18 and up and includes free parking. Five Points Lounge is located at 2608 S. Federal Highway, just north of the Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport. Call 305-803-9014, or visit their Facebook page.
