Oh, Halloween.

A night where blood-sucking vampires dressed in black and red pasties and fishnet stalkings fist pump alongside flesh-eating zombies, where half-naked camo girls grind up on shredded Top Gun pilots, where sexy superheroes down candy corn jello shots alongside evil villains.

Yeah, it's a pretty interesting time where it's socially acceptable for ladies to dress skanky anyone can be whoever they want for a night, no questions asked. And since we live in the Magic City, you know the freak is gonna be at an all-time high the 31st.

That's why we here at Crossfade are hooking you up with Miami's ten best Halloween bashes. No tricks, just treats.

Bardot Miami's Fifth Anniversary: "Still Fresh, Still Exciting, Still New"


It's tough to say what the greatest show at Bardot has been over the past five years, but that time Dwayne Wade rented out the Wynwood lounge in 2012 for Gabrielle Union's 40th-birthday pajama jam was one for the books.

"Doug E. Fresh played," recalls David Sinopoli, the guy responsible for booking all of Bardot's shows. "He's like, 'Yo, I've got a friend in the crowd, and he's gonna come spit a couple bars.' It was fuckin' Will Smith. He surprised Gabrielle Union. He had a mask on, took the mask off, and we're like, 'Wait, what?'"

But now, finally, the end has come.
