Kick off the holiday weekend with an eerie set by SKAM Artist Eric D-Lux. The Los Angeles-based DJ recently kicked it with celebrities including Kevin Hart, Trey Songz, Nas and Post Malone. See if he can craft a mix that’s as eclectic as his crew when he hits the decks at Drai’s. Maybe he’ll throw in a spooky surprise by either blending in some Halloween tunes or, even better, bringing one of his celebrity buddies with him. Locals are free, so there’s no excuse to miss out.

House veteran Laidback Luke brings his Super You & Me party to Surrender, and you should suit up for the evening. This edition of the superhero-themed party has got a stacked lineup; you can catch electro-house heavyweight Tujamo, trap producer 4B and local dance duo Shelco Garcia & Teenwolf. As with all Super You & Me parties, costumes are encouraged, so you can whip in your Spider Man getup or nae nae dressed as Storm from X-Men. Feel free to “Get Dumb,” but please abstain from creating conflicts with other clubgoers dressed in costumes. We don’t want another Infinity Gauntlet situation. Read our interview with Laidback Luke.

Happy Hard-oween! Yeah, that’s right: We misspelled Halloween on purpose because Dutch DJ/producer Hardwell is coming to Hakkasan. The 27-year-old dropped “Mad World,” his collaboration with singer Jake Reese, earlier this month. It pairs his signature progressive house-synths and driving drums with Reese’s infectiously catchy pop hook. We hope he plays it tonight. Also on the bill: fellow Dutch progressive house artist Kill the Buzz. Hopefully neither will kill the buzz in the main room. And in the Ling Ling Club, DJ Ruckus brings it. This is one poppin’ venue! (In MGM Grand, 10:30 p.m., Celebrate the 20th anniversary of the Fetish & Fantasy Halloween Ball. This year, the party takes place in three giant rooms and two levels with sounds by DJ Dan, DJ Skribble, Donald Glaude and more. See for yourself why the Los Angeles Times says it’s “the one party you don’t want to miss.” Costumes are encouraged, of course. (In Hard Rock Hotel, 10 p.m., Looking for an even darker way to spend your Halloween? Scarlet, Artifice’s “deepest red goth night,” hosts a costume contest with cash prizes. As always, DJs Style and Morpheus Blak keep it dark with the best goth, industrial, dark ’80s and death-rock tunes. Stay scary, my friends.

When temperatures go down, the dome goes up. At least that’s the case at Marquee Dayclub. It’s the only place where you’ll be able to experience a daytime winter pool party. And since it’s Dia de los Muertos (Day of the Dead), what better way to welcome the dayclub off-season than by having a $10,000 bikini contest? Since the stakes are high, professional poker player, actor and Internet personality Dan Bilzerian hosts the extravaganza. A bikini contest in the fall? Yeah, you read that right. Arrive in a jacket, but bring a swimsuit. (At the Cosmopolitan, 11 a.m.,

The results are in! DJ Mag’s highly anticipated Top 100 is out! Of course, the usual suspects rest easy at the top of the list; Hardwell, Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike, Armin van Buuren and Tiësto make the top five. However, it should be noted that the No. 1 DJ in the world, Martin Garrix, isn’t even legally allowed to be in a club. Well, in Las Vegas at least. The 19-year-old “Animals” hitmaker is heralded as a prodigy when it comes to crafting some of the hottest EDM. Hear a few of the top DJ’s hits when he makes his rounds at Omnia. Chicago’s muay thai fighter/DJ OB-One tackles Heart of Omnia. (In Caesars Palace, 10:30 p.m.,

Remember MTV’s Pimp My Ride? The show, hosted by rapper Xzibit, exhibited a car’s journey from hooptie to hot rod. Unfortunately, its run ended in 2011, but car owners are still tricking out their rides today. This is chronicled by Rides magazine, which is partying at Hyde for Infamous Wednesdays. DJ D-Miles provides the soundtrack. Drive down for the fun. (In Bellagio, 10:30 p.m.,
