The Zombies

There are no rules on Halloween: If it's an event in October, you are allowed to dress up. Committing crimes that follow the protocol of what is expected at a zombie dance-off are totally allowed. See, for Halloween, our friendly tiki mecca on U.S. 1 is celebrating all things horror with one of its highly successful dance nights, turning it into a zombie soiree. At Zombie A-Go-Go, zombie is the theme, but remember, no rules. Wear your Wolverine, Sexy Pirate, or Charlie Brown costume -- and shimmy in it. If you've already partied and worn your Halloween costume this year -- twice -- you have three choices: You can (a) get ready for the third: Don't wash it, that's the zombie smell after all; (b) make a last-minute evil-dead costume: Tear your clothes, dismember a limb by taping your right arm to your side, and then put on some blood; or (c) buy a zombie prom queen outfit. DJ Sensitive Side, who creates a feel-right music night we never like to miss; DJ Mike Ramirez of Radio-Active Records, who supplies you with a cornucopia of tunes that only a manager and buyer for a record store could; and James Brown's Sweat (nuff said), will provide the score to the night. There will be horror films being projected on the dance floor, happy hour specials from 10 p.m. to midnight, and a costume contest (prizes from Radio-Active). The zombie twists start at 9 p.m. at Mai-Kai Restaurant and Polynesian Show. No cover.
