Five things to do Sunday 31:
GAY & LESBIAN - Northalsted Halloween Parade
This annual event brings thousands to Boystown for ghoulish revelry before the misery of winter arrives. Lakeview neighborhood from Addison St to Diversey Pkwy. El: Brown, Purple (rush hrs), Red to Belmont. Bus: 11, 22, 76, 152. 6pm, FREE.
NIGHTLIFE - Playboy’s Mansion Madness
There are two schools of thought when it comes to Halloween: go scary or go sexy. Crimson Lounge’s Friday and Saturday night swirl the two together nicely, but on Halloween proper, it’s all sexy, all the way. Hosted by Playmate beauties Christina Santiago and Jordan Monroe, don’t be surprised if there are multiple Hugh Hefners in attendance at the party. Crimson Lounge. 10pm, $25.
DANCE - Salsa Open Dance Contest
Five weekly preliminaries lead up to a final showdown Dec 5 for five grand in prize money at Latin Street Dancing’s second annual contest. Registration can be done in advance or at the Cubby Bear before 9pm. Routines are limited to 90 seconds and, while props are allowed and costumes encouraged, there is a strict “no fire” policy, so leave the pyrotechnics at home, kids. Good luck! Cubby Bear (1059 W Addison St, 773-327-1662, cubbybear.com. 9pm, FREE.
