Cafeina's "A Nightmare on 23rd Street" along with Hostess & Guest DJ, Elaine Lancaster

Last night, I attended an amazing Halloween bash at Cafeina Wynwood Lounge in Miami's Art District. Cafeina is a really cool hot spot my friends. It is a multi-room lounge and art gallery. Did I mention it also has an outdoor garden area with beautiful sofas and bars. Their Halloween event was called "A Nightmare on 23rd Street" and it was hosted by Miami's hottest Drag Queen, Elaine Lancaster (pictured above). This ultra fabulous "Miami Housewife" is also a DJ! It was one of the funnest night's ever! Throughout the evening, guests were treated to complimentary SOCO shots every time Freddy Kreuger's theme song would play. Talk about a TREAT! If you want to check out Cafeina, check out their Facebook Page for upcoming events or log onto their website.
