Halloween 2014

Halloween for adults is still all about the sugar. We've just traded in the mini Kit Kats for sweet shots and plenty of eye candy. And it just wouldn't be Vegas without the chance to win some money. All over the Las Vegas Strip, clubs and casinos hold costume contests doling out more money than you could stuff into a little plastic jack-o-lantern. We don’t care if your costume is tasteful or trashy, a cartoon character or kinky clubwear, as long as you’ve come to party. In this town, you’re sure to find a treat. We’ll just leave the tricks up to your imagination.
