Stop scratching your head with a chainsaw over what to do this All Hallow's Eve; today's side deal has an otherworldly suggestion. With this deal, $17 gets you in to the Times Square alien-invasion-turned-blow-out-party, Halloween on Mars, a $34 value. Dance, mingle, dine, and down Martian liquors with mobs of happy haunters.
Halloween on Mars takes place at Mars 2112, the 15,000-square-foot bar from outer space that glows with warm light and has lots of human-friendly plush seating. DJ Martial (who will be in costume as a charming colonial lighthouse) will throw down danceable beats and host surprise performances and guest DJs throughout the six hours of interplanetary partying. Between 9 p.m. and 10 p.m., sip on complimentary red planet shots (usually priced upwards of $2.1 billion, due to the inclusion of actual soil from the red planet) and Martian-tinis, both served at the six bars spread across two levels of rugged party terrain.
Mars 2112 is located in Midtown, not far from Times Square. Get this deal and have a Halloween that's more fun than draping your eighth grade geometry teacher's condo in quilted Charmin, which, incidentally, you should still do.
Reviewers on Insider Pages give Mars 2112 three stars:

- This enormous...restaurant / entertainment complex is something to see. There is something for everyine [sic] in the family and you find your sense challenged as you explore a different world. – Vincent P.
Is There Nightlife on Mars?
The only problem with attending a hip Halloween affair is that many of the celebrities sure to attend will be thoroughly disguised by their costumes, allowing them to walk among us in comfort and privacy. Since this is clearly unacceptable, we've secured this secret guest list of celebrities and their costumes:
That Creature From The Black Lagoon is actually Romanian Silver-Medalist Pietro Kogalniceaunu, master of the blindfolded high-dive.
That Captain Jack Sparrow is actually Elizabethtown's Orlando Bloom. Hi, Orlando!
That Fairy Princess is actually Barv Madigan, host of Barv's Inferno of Choppers and BBQ on NGTV: Nail Gun Television "For Man Dudes!"
That Sexy Pizza Delivery Caveman is actually Cherish Coquette, reality TV heiress and multiple felon.
That pair of Aliens excitedly discussing the mutual impact of the work of Brian Eno on their own musical styles is actually Moby and Michael Stipe in street clothes. Don't worry, they know.
