Think your costume can win a $5,000 cash prize or a stay at a four-star hotel in Paris? Want to dress like a "Twilight" extra? Just want to enjoy a really good cocktail or some funky tunes? We've got plenty of options. But then there's also plenty of live music this week, including Future of the Left, Saul Williams and Living Colour, the Vivian Girls and a local hair metal cover band.
