10 Spooktacular Ways to Spend Halloween in Chicago

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.

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.

...covering the Lemons (the early-90s Seattle band). Thursday at 10 p.m. The Owl, 2521 N. Milwaukee. Free...

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.

Yes, the city’s chicest cocktail bar is throwing the holiday’s most kitschiest bash, but there’s no doubt Danny Shapiro & co. probably make a mean jungle juice. Throw on a bed sheet and do a toga chant. 8 p.m. Scofflaw, 3201 W. Armitage. 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.

My cat is lost

My cat ran outside and has been missing for 3 days. I live next to the fire station on Prindivile and Stave. If you see him let me know please. He is a cream colored tabby cat with green eyes, he is tall with long legs. His name is Oliver. He is a little mean too!

  • Do you live next to the lot? Go over there and call him when it's quiet and go up and down the alley. Go over by Bang Bang, they have an outdoor area. If he's chipped and your info is correct, despite being mean, someone should get him back to to you.

  • Have you found him yet?? I think we saw him yesterday! He was further south on Stave, on the opposite side of the street from you - in the lot just north of 2076 North Stave. There's another orange cat that's an outdoor cat that lives near there so I...

    Have you found him yet?? I think we saw him yesterday! He was further south on Stave, on the opposite side of the street from you - in the lot just north of 2076 North Stave. There's another orange cat that's an outdoor cat that lives near there so I didn't think twice, but now that you point it out the one we saw was skinny and looked like Oliver, where the other one is a little bit bigger and longer-haired. GOOD LUCK! We will let you know if we see him again!!

Stroller stolen in Palmer Square Park

Hi all, I just had my stroller stolen this morning at Palmer Square Park, sometime between 9:30 and 10:15 this morning. I left it right next to a tree towards the Kedzie side of the park (in the big green space) while my son ran around and eventually headed towards the playground area. When we retuned to go home, it was gone.
It is a black bugaboo frog (older model) witha skip hop stroller organizer at the top with a red sippy cup, applesauce pouch and tissues in it. In the bottom undercarriage is a red patterned bag with 4 library books in it. If you have any information please contact me at kathryn.rodrigues@gmail.com or 773.727.1555. Thank you!!

  • David Altenburg

    Wow, it would take a real scumbag to do that. Sorry to hear about this =(

  • So sorry to hear this! Thanks for posting so all other parents using the park know to be careful. I was in the park around that time by the play area but didn't see anything odd that caught my attention or could be useful unfortunately.

  • Jerry Cargill Photographer, Teacher, Live on Milwaukee Ave.

    Wow. I don't have kids, but I googled that stroller. Expensive! Look at Craigslist. That puppy's as expensive as any nice bike.
