It’s that time of year again— when it’s fun to be afraid. There’s still time to make your house festively spooky with the help of Bath and Body Works, where celebs have been heading to freak out their kids and get clean doing it.

A 750 ml bottle’s $24.99 at Jensen’s Liquors No. 2 (1516 NW 27th Ave., Miami); find cocktails like the bellini Gabby favors at Grand Central Bar (697 N. Miami Ave.).
