10 Spooktacular Ways to Spend Halloween in Chicago

Expect some over-the-top spectacle at Redmoon’s thousand-person, hundred-dollar shebang (they’ve already promised a fire garden, celestial swing, UFO carousel, and mechanical pastry dispenser). Friday at 9 p.m. 2120 S. Jefferson. $100.

This article has 9 other Chicago locations (Show)

Start Halloween a night early with Evil Twin beers and a horror flick marathon at Bar on Buena. Remember to dress up—best costume wins a pair of Bulls tickets. Thursday at 7 p.m. Bar on Buena, 910 W. Buena. Free.

Now that Scofflaw’s larger, dancier sister-bar has risen, it will inherit Ghost of Bonny’s—Scofflaw’s big, annual dance party. Costumes highly recommended. Bottled cocktails highly available. 8 p.m. Slippery Slope, 2357 N. Milwaukee. Free.

Get this: If you give the Dawson $15 between 7 and 10 p.m. on Friday, they will give you a drink called the Corpse Reviver and take you into a back room (“the Devil’s Den") for a haunted palm reading. It’s unclear whether you’ll ever return. 7-10 p.m. The Dawson, 730 W. Grand. $15.

...10, which is huge, since Skilling’s calling for snow. Friday at 8. Headquarters Beercade, 2833 N. Sheffield (Lakeview) and 213 W. Institute (River North). Free...
