In Good Spirits
Your Last-Minute Guide to Halloween
This past weekend, you saw a few sexy tigers and zombie Brian Wilsons. And that was just your Game 4 watch party. Tonight, however, it’s on for real: Halloween. Herewith, five places to do it right.
Tarot. Fortune-Tellers. Pumpkin Beer.
We’ve seen your future, and you’re at RN74, in costume, drinking pumpkin beer and cocktails, eating $1 oysters and commiserating with a tarot-card reader and fortune-teller. It’s almost like we have a crystal ball or something...
Titanic-Related Goodness at Heirloom
Dust off (or, you know, acquire) a vintage tailcoat for Heirloom’s Vintage Ball, replete with a five-course dinner inspired loosely by the Titanic. There’ll be oysters Rockefeller, beef Wellington and a fair amount of champagne. Better yet, you’ll be on dry land.
Bad Movie Night at the Aquarium
Piranha 3D: a cinematic treasure that came this close to winning an Oscar. (And by this close, we mean not close at all.) Anyway, the Aquarium’s showing the movie with an MST3K-style running commentary from Dark Room Theater. And it’s probably the only party where a bikini counts as an appropriate costume.
Watching Halloween on Halloween
A psychotic murderer. A kitchen knife. Jamie Lee Curtis circa 1978. But enough about that really weird dream you had last night, let’s talk Halloween. They’re showing it at the historic Balboa, built in 1926. No jokes about that being Jamie Lee’s birth year, please.
