SANGRIA SATANIQUE
-1 cup freshly squeezed OJ
-1/4 cup lime juice
-1/2 chopped onions
-1 jalapeno pepper
-1.5 litres of tomato juice
-500 ml TEQUILA
More booze to come but first let's get to the parties. Get the five-day-hangover started on Thursday with those kids from Automatic Vaudeville Studios. They're hosting a High-Class Cinematic Evening tonight at la Sala Rossa. When they say classy, they mean local band the Donkeys, and BIG GOLD HOOPS and KOSHER DILL SPEARS.

Let's skip the entire weekend now and jump to Monday. If you have not bought a ticket for British uber-pop superstars The GO! TEAM, not only are you missing the social event of the season, you are destined to have another shitty Halloween. As if like a geeky eager beaver I ran out to get a ticket for the Halloween show. Now I'm afraid I'll be too weak to make it after the weekend's exertions on Monday back at the office.
TIME FOR WITCHES BREW
-45 ml Vodka
-1 cup Grand Marnier
-Lime Juice
-Bloody Cranberry Juice to top it off
FRIDAY NIGHT you can't go wrong with Plastic Patrik's popular night. It's already Halloween every Friday night at Saphir. Also on Friday, the Chinese Stars, Ex Models, Duchess Says and Mahi Mahi play El Salon ($12) and there will be diabolical DJ's and costume prizes too. I can't wait to see what kind of get up Vancouver ex-pats Dandi Wind put together when costumes are actually mandatory -- they're at Zoobizarre 10PM $5. And NEON are at the SAT for Let's Get Physical with DJ's T, Plastique de Reve and Jordon Dare. Apparently Jordon Dare will also bust into a synthpop set with band mates Sean Kosa, Mateo Murphy and Pat Wreck.

SATURDAY: You can HOWL and SCREAM in Park EX with DJ's Ever and Superultramega. This party is brought to you by the nice people at CKUT, 450 Beaumont. Just take the #80 and get off right after Beaubien. If you are looking for FREE head up to the Green Room for Midnight Poutine's own DJ Matt Silver. NOT FREE but pretty damn close at $3 is the Divan Orange Dance Party with Royal Air Togo.

ON SUNDAY, PICNIC ElectroniK is throwing a freaky outdoor costume dance party out on Ile Jean Drapeau. I am a big fan of late summer, but I fear Oct. 30th may be pushing the limits.

wow, picnic electronik on Oct 30 - this is when you need to make a costume made entirely of sweaters and afgans. I'm gold! In fact, that's my halloween tip: crazy sweaters and wacked-out afgans, re-organized. Stop. Go.
