Travel and Paranormal: Las Vegas's Spooky Kabooki on
(Las Vegas, Nevada) - This Halloween, SUSHISAMBA strip
at The Palazzo Las Vegas takes inspiration from the
highly stylized, mask-like makeup and outrageously colorful
costume of traditional Japanese Kabuki theater with
Spooky KaBOOki. From its bizarre stylizations and outlandish
characters, to its unique stage techniques and keren
(visual tricks) - the concept of Kabuki will be brilliantly
transformed and shockingly brought to life at SUSHISAMBA's
Halloween celebration on Friday, Oct. 31.
Since it was first created in 1603, Kabuki
theater has captured the minds and hearts of audiences
across Japan and the world. Kabuku, which means "to
be out of the ordinary," is the basis of Kabuki,
which means "avant-garde."
SUSHISAMBA's signature colors and décor
of orange and black lends itself well to this ghoulish
holiday, which will only further heighten the senses
during this special Halloween night. Bold diners who
dare arrive in head to toe costumes can compete as well.
This year's frighteningly fun festivities will include:
A killer costume contest
1st place $200 SUSHISAMBA gift certificate
Runners-up will each receive a $100 gift certificate*
Terror-ific tunes by DJ Dracula
SAMBAkids will enjoy free Japanese candy,
as well as Spooky KaBOOki's Dracula dessert special
which consists of Coca Cola gelee, vanilla bean ice
cream, and raspberry foam, topped with berry blood drops
and pop rock explosions.
SUSHISAMBA will also offer the Spooky
KaBOOki cocktail special with one oz. pearl pomegranate
vodka, one oz. blood orange puree and one oz. mango
juice shaken with ice and poured into wine glass, drizzled
with grenadine then garnished with a blood orange ring
floating on top, with a green straw through the middle
to finish the look of a pumpkin.
On Halloween, SUSHISAMBA will be open
during its regular hours. Open for lunch at 11:30 a.m.
and serving until 3 a.m., however, showcasing costumes
and cultures at SUSHISAMBA does not conclude with Halloween
and Spooky KaBOOki either.
Early next year, SUSHISAMBA strip will
debut its popular Cosplay, a conjunction for "costume
play." Already a popular nightlife staple in locations
including Miami, the concept originated in Japan where
like-minded friends would gather in places such as Tokyo's
Harajuku or Akihabara district, decked out costumes
inspired by anime (animation), tokusatsu (special effects),
manga (comic books) or video games. During Cosplay,
staff members will be dressed in costumes, making it
appear as though it is Halloween all year long. While
wearing costumes will not be mandatory for guests, those
who do will be eligible for a cash prize. Cosplay will
take place every week.
