Whenever I hear the term "masquerade ball," I immediately picture that scene in Eyes Wide Shut where Tom Cruise goes to that Gatsby-esque Skull & Bones party and everyone wears a mask and gets their orgy on.

I can't guarantee Miami.com's Halloween Masquerade Ball on Thursday, October 30, at Casa Casuarina is going to turn into a swinger's club, but I can guarantee Tom Cruise won't be there. So that's a plus. I can also guarantee there will be complimentary cocktails, and you don't even have to wear a costume, as we'll provide you with a snazzy mask. And since it's at the mansion formerly known as Versace, you'll feel tres classy.

So, how do you get into such an exclusive partay? Easy: Start reviewing stuff. The users who leave the most reviews from now until Friday get themselves and a guest on the oh-so exclusive list. And I'm not just saying "exclusive" because I want you to feel special (not that you aren't). We can really only invite a certain number of people. So get on Miami.com, leave some reviews - you eat, party, leave your house every few days or so, right? - and in a few days you could get an invitation to our ball. That's right, it's a straight-up BALL.

Sure beats hanging out with Tom Cruise.
