You've already hit all your high fructose corn syrup levels with office candy corn, but you're still in the festive spirit, yeah? Well good news, you don't have to dress up as Guy Fieri or sexy Pizza Rat to be a foodist for this holiday. Let's see how many times we can use the word spooktacular, shall we?
If you enjoy a really good, professionally told ghost story, along with a creamy butternut squash soup, snap up some tickets to this dinner at Bad Manor on the Trail of Terror. There are only a few tickets left for each dinner, hosted by Jim Cunningham and peppered with stories of the real ghosts of the grounds.
Some people just want to dip their toe in the holiday, maybe snacking from candy in their pockets while sipping high-quality brews and answering spooktacular trivia. This is one for people who keep their brains inside their head, instead of dripping down their shirts.
If you're forcing your loved one to wear a Real Housewives costume or playing Kanye to your Kim, maybe you should consider a little bribery with this class. It is legit all about handsome hunks of gorgeous beef and stunning top-shelf Scotch whiskies. This will sell out fast, so prove your love.
Scotty Munster (I know!) is the artist in residence this month at Glam Doll, and his art is vivid and luscious, so why not throw a brouhaha. DJ music, art, donuts, and Bittercube drinks mix well with costumes, and proceeds go to feed hungry kids.
Brit's is celebrating 25 years of cheeky fun! With both Queen and Beatles tribute bands pumping the beats, it will be easy to down a few Newcastle beers for $4.50, swing through a gaggle of Harry Potters, and insert yourself with Patsy and Edina for an AbFab evening.
Want to skip the zombie gore and slutty Paul Bunyan kitsch, but still celebrate All Hallows' Eve? Hell's Kitchen is hosting dinner all weekend with twinkling candles and a more subtle nod to the dark arts in the form of beautiful drinks and food that ring of the season.
Those kooked out kids throw a show with dry ice and severed things every night! Do not underestimate the fun and chaos that might ensue at this all-you-can-eat party that rolls between Pig Ate My Pizza and Travail. Expect small plates, a buffet, karaoke, costume contests, beer chugging contests, interactive food stations (here, put your head in this box ...), and more. Dare you NOT to wear a costume.
Seriously you can't have cooler plans than this: Get on the bus, Gus, and head to Milwaukee for the Doomtree show with all the cool Surly kids. Surly beer and snacks will be served on the bus ride to Milwaukee, where you will eat and drink, partake in a Doomtree/LIZZO show with Halloween shenanigans, have a baller hang out with the band, party till you drop, have breakfast, and be driven back to the brewery, all for $199. Whut.
The downstairs Library Bar at Marin is PERFECT for a murder mystery dinner to kick off your Halloween night. Dine on suspicion and intrigue, as well as a three course dinner with bevvies, that might have you seated next to a suspect. After the crime is solved, the bar will erupt in a dance party and costume contest.
There is something a little dark and sultry about Foreign Legion to begin with, so adding a little mask and bubbly action should bring things right around. Your $20 entry includes a mask, but come on, you can do better than that.
