Forget about reclaiming that “kid again” feeling this Halloween, after all, those torturous teen years have kept you penciled in and warming the couch of NYC’s top psychologist long enough. This pumpkin day, tap into one of those psych session personalities and become booty shaking Beyonce, disheveled Ms. Spears (minus the MTV performance…no one can stomach that again) or a sexy Victoria Secret vixen. Then, strut down to the hottest Halloween parties and drink, dance and masquerade all night long.
If you decide to go as B, then find your Jay-Z during the 6th Annual Halloween Masquerade Ball at Capitale (You may actually find the real Jay because this party is known for celebrity sightings). Spend some time at the open vodka bar from 9pm -10pm (suggestion: don’t spend an hour at the bar…tipsy is o.k., hammered is not pretty at all), show off that costume and dance to the DJ’s mix of Hip-Hop, Rock, Top 40, Dance and 80’s music on the main floor. If you’re a Diva that can’t mingle with non-VIP’s, then head upstairs to the Esquire Lounge in the VIP Room presented by Esquire Magazine. Here you will find the same music selection with a crowd more your status.
General admission is $25, VIP is $45, because they roll like that. For tickets and more info, call 212.255.4233 or visit www.capitaleny.com

Would you rather spend the night in heaven or hell? This Halloween, how about a little bit of both. Find that sexy angel or devil costume and head over to the Heaven and Hell party, where it’s two parties in one. Room Service and Ten’s are opening their doors this Saturday to celebrate Halloween by giving you the best of both worlds. Angels head to Room Service for luxury hotel-like surroundings with 5 star services to match. If you want some serious pampering, book a VIP suite and have a waitress serve up fine crafted cocktails for the evening. After basking in this Angelic setting, embrace your sultry side and experience Ten’s. This cabaret joint is hot! All you devils will wreck some havoc in the spirit of Halloween (as if you need a real reason).
General admission is $25. For VIP Tables, reservations and more info, call 212.255.4233.
