At what other place on Earth can you toast to an albino alligator with local drag legend Peaches Christ? The Academy of Sciences is throwing a particularly spine-chilling NightLife this Halloween, featuring Christ and some real mad science. First, see some human-beast oddities inspired by the H.G. Wells classic The Island of Dr. Moreau, then check out a “haunted” tour of the night sky. Curious spirits can also learn about skeletons and skulls with a resident expert as DJ Omar of Popscene provides the “Monster Mash” for the dancefloor.
