Halloween may fall on a Wednesday this year, but there are still plenty of Halloween events happening on or around the holiday. Both clubs and other businesses are holding special Halloween-themed events, including parties, sales and more. Here are a few spooky highlights.
— The Bachelor Farmer, 50 2nd Ave. N., is holding a mysterious one-night-only event on the 31st. The Bachelor Farmer and Marvel Bar will combine into a single entity for the night, which will feature a complete redesign of the menu and the space itself. All Bachelor Farmer employees will be in costume, and diners are encouraged to dress up as well. The restaurant isn’t offering many clues about what to expect from the event, but interested diners are encouraged to make reservations right away.
— First Avenue, 701 1st Ave. N., will host its annual Halloween party on Oct. 31 at 8 p.m. The annual party takes over all three of the venue’s performance spaces: the Mainroom, 7th St. Entry and Record Room. The dance party features a costume contest with over $1,000 in cash prizes. Tickets are $5 in advance and $10 at the door.
— Custom jewelry store T Lee is throwing a multi-day sale that doubles as a Halloween celebration and the closing of its current location. On Thursday, Oct. 25, all jewelry will be 30 percent off, with the discount growing to 40 percent on the 26th. On Saturday, Oct. 27, all jewelry will be 50 percent off, or 60 percent off for anyone wearing a Halloween costume. From 6 to 9 p.m. on the 27th, the store will host a Halloween/closing party with a tarot card reader, crystal ball reader and other attractions. The shop will reopen at its new location on 1st Ave. NE in mid-November.
— The Pourhouse, 10 5th St. S., has several days of Halloween activities planned. On Sunday, Oct. 28, the club is hosting “Pour-a-Booza,” a full day of live music running from 1 p.m.–2 a.m. The event will feature 20 bands, a pig roast, Vikings cheerleaders and more. On Tuesday, Oct. 30, students from McNally Smith College of Music will perform “Rocky Horror Picture Show.” On Halloween, The Pourhouse will host a Halloween costume contest with prizes and music from local DJs.
