Got a thing for carrottops? You'll find plenty of them at this monthly soiree for gingers and their friends. DJ Sean McMahill (guess what color his hair is) presides while you knock back $2 pints and $3 whiskey gingers.

Mexico's Day of the Dead meets New Orleans' All Saints' Day celebration for an interactive hoedown within the church formerly known as the Limelight, with blacklights and skeletons galore, a jazz funeral (an enactment, we hope, rather than the real deal), body painting and a "human voodoo doll."
Roberta’s hosts a two-day ghoulish gathering with Might Get Weird, transforming its outdoor space into an interactive haunted garden. Get into the spirit with shots of "blood" (a SoCo-and-sloe-gin Red Racer) and spiced cider, and vote for the most wow-worthy jack-o'-lantern via Instagram.
