Saturday, October 27, The City Reliquary will be hosting its “Haunted Halloween Backyard Bash” from 6:00 – 10:00 p.m. Per their press release:

There will be a pumpkin carving contest!

There will be fun games with sugary prizes!

There will be homemade Halloween treats!

There will be IMPENDING DOOM in the Haunted Forest!

I think I’ll skip the “impending doom” part in favor of savoring the flavor of the aforementioned “homemade Halloween treats”. Those who are interested in entering the pumpkin carving contest need to their bring your own pumpkins and it should be noted the donning of costumes is encouraged.

  2. There is also a Halloween event this coming Sunday 10/28 on Java Street, I’ve been seeing flyers for it all over the place. I think a parade too (?), but my memory may be faulty.

  4. Finally made it in to Lokal tonight, and the getting was good. The menu is still in “preview” mode, but the food was yummy and the space is positively interesting. Go.
