Halloween parties and events
Get your witch costume ready for this al fresco, magical BYOB screening. Don't forget about the pre-movie entertainment, like a cauldron photo booth, pumpkin smashing, Halloween candy walk and costume contest.
Shaun of the Dead, The Texas Chainsaw Massacre and Rocky Horror Picture Show make up this party's triple-feature, but you can always just stop by for the costume contest or drink specials like $3 cans of Uncle Billy.
Dry ice cocktails and $2 jello shots are the drink highlights of this Halloween party at Gisbon Street Bar if you need to sip something before hitting the dance floor.
A Grave Digger cocktail with dry eyes, haunted hay rides and candy are among the spooky specials at this brewery's Halloween party. Don't forget to dress up (kids and dogs, too) and vie for a prize.
Dress up your dog for a costume contest at this Barton Springs haunt, where you'll be able to sip on beer while your pup enjoys free treats.
This Halloween party at Caroline in it for the long haul with $2 tacos and "cauldron" drink specials from Tito's and Flora de Cana all day. Costume contests take place at 4pm and midnight if you're feeling competitive, and there are raffle prizes handed out throughout the day.
Raise a glass (or four) at the second annual fundraiser for We Are Blood, formally the Blood and Tissue Center of Central Texas. Try 4-ounce glasses from 10 breweries for $15, and a $10 pig roast plate if you're feeling peckish.
It's always Christmas at Lala's but on Friday the holiday has a decidedly Halloween flavor. Costumes encouraged when you sidle up to the bar for a spooky cocktail or Celis beer (and you'll get a free glass if you buy a pint).
Inject a little comedy into Halloween this year at Spider House Ballroom’s Comedy Séance, where Satan (aka comedian Norm Wilkinson) plays host to a gaggle of ghouls: dead celebrities and historical figures performing stand-up. It’s totally weird—and totally Austin.
Chef Gabe Erales of the forthcoming Dai Due Taqueria (yes, we're excited, too) is teaming up with Holy Roller for a six-course dinner with drink pairings for a pre-Halloween party. Costumes encouraged.
Holy Roller's Callie Speer is promising a wild, wicked and whimsical party with music by DJ Kid Guerilla and specialty cocktails included with admission. Costumes encouraged.
