It’s one week out from Halloween and you still haven’t picked out that group costume, figured out where to go, and stressed-binged on all that drugstore candy meant for Trick-Or-Treaters. Never fear! We have the ultimate hook-up for spooktacular parties, concerts, costume contests, so you can rest easy and party hard this Halloweekend thru the big day itself. 

Note: We handpicked the businesses we love to participate in this Halloween roundup. The businesses then paid a small fee to be included in the list. The proceeds go towards the operation of your beloved neighborhood website.

And since this year we’re feeling the seasonal creep, we’re going to keep things hot and sweaty for just a little longer with the skint’s Wet Haunt American Summer Halloween Party. Join us for a spooky dance party celebrating things that go bunk in the night. Featuring music spun by DJs Brendan & Bianca, a photo booth, spiked drink specials, a costume contest, and 100 pounds of free candy. And as for the dress code: It’s Halloween, so anything goes. Dress as a zombie lifeguard, a talking can of vegetables, Fleabag, a broken L train, 30-50 feral hogs. Best looks can win a prize in our costume contest!
