Yes, it’s Friday. All you can think about is what you’re doing tonight, but we want you to focus for one minute on planning next weekend—and Halloween. There are still spook-tacular events going on!
Costumes galore: SocialWeen at Max’s Social House
There will be a best couples costume, best cocktail theme costume (may the big walking dirty martini win!) and best overall costume. We’re talking about Max’s Social House (116 NE 6th St., Delray Beach) on Oct. 30 from 8 p.m. to 1 a.m. The night includes a DJ, a signature SocialWeen cocktail, discount drinks and light appetizers before 10 p.m. Advance tickets cost $10, and tickets at the door are $15.
Howl-O-Ween: You and your pet in costume – need we say more?
There will be dog bumblebees. You can count on it—and probably a hotdog or two. See what you can come up with for your furry friend for Howl-O-Ween. Max’s Grille (404 Plaza Real, Boca Raton) and Tri-County Humane Society will join forces on Oct. 29 starting at 6 p.m. Admission is $10, and registration for each pet is $10 too. Call 561/368-0080, so you can enjoy a complimentary drink and appetizers too. Judging for humans and fur kids starts at 8 p.m.
Trick or treat at Nauti Hallow’s Eve: Hudson Delray
We want photos of the winners at the Nauti Hallow’s Eve mischievous costume contest on the edge of the Intracoastal in Delray Beach. The mind boggles at the possibilities, but it will be an evening to remember—we’re sure. It’s at Hudson Delray (900 E. Atlantic Ave., Suite 22, Delray Beach; 561/303-1343), and there will be dancing and drink specials (Jack O Lantern Shots, $3; Witches Brew, $5; and Pumpkin Smashed Martinis, $8).
Day of the Dead: Continue the fest at Cantina Laredo
Dia de los Muertos (Day of the Dead) may be Nov. 1, but Cantina Laredo (501 Silks Run, Hallandale Beach; 954/457-7662) is celebrating for three days, from Oct. 31 to Nov. 2. The special drink is The Blue Moon Pumpkin ‘Rita (pictured) for just $6, which features Lunazul Blanco Tequila, pumpkin puree, Blue Moon beer and fresh lime juice. We think it will help keep you alive during Dia de los Muertos.
