Vaucluse Lounge owners Brad and Claire Cox believe their Sunset Boulevard lounge might be haunted. The two claim paintings have flown off the walls, unexplained light orbs have appeared and there's a creepy feeling of being watched. And they want you to experience it. The restaurant is hosting a special dinner with a ghost event on Oct. 22, just in time for Halloween. At 9 p.m. a five-course dinner will be served and guests will be part of a paranormal investigation. Tickets are $295 per person and include drinks. Space is limited. For reservations call (323) 656-6196. 8420 W. Sunset Blvd., Los Angeles, www.vauclusecalifornia.com.
