var React = require(‘react’);
var ReactDOM = require(‘react-dom’);

var fiftyFifty = Math.random() < 0.5;

// React.createClass call begins here:
var TonightsPlan = React.createClass({
render: function() {
var target = {fiftyFifty ? ‘out’ : ‘to bed’ };

return <h1>Tonight I'm going {target} WOOO</h1>;

}
});

That’s not a valid expression.

Here’s a simpler version of what you did:

var x = { 5 };

That’s not valid javascript. Perhaps you meant to do:

var x = 5;
