Halloween is like a city holiday here it seems. Everyone decorates their yards the way other cities do for Christmas; there are more haunted houses and corn mazes in the metro area than perhaps any other in the country; and pumpkin patches are not just a thing seen on the outskirts of town. As such probably everyone you know is planning to do something fun this Saturday night, or is at least planning to be waiting with candy for the tiny terrors.
With such a fun holiday, why not plan to have fun with family or friends at a restaurant this holiday? Lots of bars will have fun parties no doubt, but if you're not in the mood for something quite as crazy as the Phoenix Hill costume party? There are probably a million and a half things going on, and unfortunately it is harder to find than one would think. However, here are a few that are being advertised and may seem perfect for your fright night fun! Comments on other fun activities are encouraged.
