If You Dare
It’s that time of year when it’s socially acceptable to pay someone to scare the pants off you. No one frightens like Freakling Bros. and the Trilogy of Terror haunts: Circus of Horrors, Castle Vampyre and Gates of Hell—the state’s only R-rated attraction. Cower over to 4245 S. Grand Canyon Dr. on select dates through Oct. 31. FreaklingBros.com.
What goes on at Burning Man? Will Roger Peterson knows. He’s a founding board member of the event and a photographer who’s been capturing life in Black Rock City for decades. A selection of his photos from la playa and beyond will be on display at Sin City Gallery through Oct. 24. SinCityGallery.com.
Here’s to a Dozen More

Art Free For Fall
The Bellagio Gallery of Fine Art celebrates Smithsonian’s annual Museum Day (Sept. 27) a little late, allowing you free admission on Oct. 4.
