Techno-chic Costume Party

Halloween's mystique has always been the ability to create your own fantasy. Playing dress-up during the witching hour is both sexy and sinister, a chance to indulge in peculiarities by our own hand. Habitually teasing the twisted line of macabre and camp, costumes are the best extension of imagination when made on intimate accord, and these days we're more equipped than ever to do it ourselves. "Take an LED and a watch battery and you can bling any costume with it," says Robert McTrusty of Makers Alliance. "I've seen a guy put multi-color LEDs all over a lab coat to make himself into a walking television set." McTrusty will take his skills to the first Night Makers Ball hosted by Scene at the Lake Erie Building, brightening up costumes throughout the night. "You don't have to be an expert, you don't have to be an engineer," says McTrusty. "Technology has made it so easy for anyone to do this." The ball begins at 8 tonight at the Screw Factory in Lakewood. Tickets are $15 in advance, $20 at the door. (Nikki Delamotte) 13000 Athens Ave., Lakewood, 216-241-7550,

 Immigrant Son Brewing
18210 Sloane Ave., Lakewood 

If you land in the camp of critics who believe, without much empirical evidence, that Cleveland has too many breweries, know this: Immigrant Son is not your typical brewery (nor is it in Cleveland). Equal attention has been paid to the four main elements of the operation – beer, food, service and setting – so that even if you don’t happen to fancy a frosty pint of crisp, clean, straw-colored Kölsch, you needn’t sit there and squawk. Lakewood’s super popular first and only brewery is a full-on brewery and brewpub, with equal emphasis placed on both the food and beer.
