We've got some updates on the Halloween Happenings around Las Vegas this weekend and want to share them with you so you have time to make plans, adjust plans or just plan to have a good time. Okay, enough with the plans.
John Waters and his One-Man Show at the Palms this weekend:
"Well, I think this year it should be called “This Horrible World,” since it’s a horror convention. It’s everything about my life. It’s sort of like a “feel good if you’re insane” lecture to inspire people who might feel left out of society ... I’ll talk about horror movies. My mother thinks all my movies are horror movies, even though none of them are technically horror movies." (excerpt from his interview with the Las Vegas Sun)
