Culture of Fear

Although Halloween is all about being something you’re not, a little authenticity is always appreciated. For example, would you rather spend the evening in a creepy yet chic clock tower, or a bar decorated with fake spiderwebs? “Looking at the other parties going on downtown, this is the coolest,” says media contact Jim Guttau. “It’s not just at another bar. It’s an exclusive look at a naturally creepy landmark in Denver.”

Tonight starting at 8 p.m., A Dark Night takes over the top five floors of the Daniels & Fisher clock tower at 1601 Arapahoe Avenue. With a haunting view of the inner workings of the clock, an open bar, a costume contest and hors d’oeuvre, all VIP attendees will get a head start before heading downstairs to the general-admission Informants show at 10 p.m. at Lannie’s Clocktower Cabaret.

Tickets, $50 for general admission and $75 for VIP, are limited; to purchase yours, or for more information, go to
Fri., Oct. 31, 9 p.m.-1 a.m., 2008
