Something wicked awesome this way comes: FX just revealed that its American Horror Story pop-up, Night Bites Bakery, will be coming to Provincetown this September.
As AHS fans know all too well, this Cape Cod town was actually the site of much filming for the celebrated TV series’ latest season, entitled "American Horror Story: Double Feature," which premiered earlier this week. Following sold-out runs in New York City and Los Angeles, it only makes sense that this immersive bakery will now be setting up shop at Provincetown’s Pat’s Happy Park, where it’ll serve up late-night treats and can’t-miss, nightmarish moments from September 1 to 4.
At the Night Bites Bakery, folks can satisfy their sweet tooths and indulge in their dark sides with a slew of confections inspired by the new storyline. Also expected from this experience (which is 18+ and requires reservations beforehand): characters and motifs that call back to past AHS plots, as well as sneak peeks of its new spin-off, American Horror Stories, which brings us a totally different terrifying tale with each weekly episode.
As the name of the latest anthology implies, “American Horror Story: Double Feature” is broken down into two parts—a seaside story called “Red Tide” and a desert-based narrative dubbed “Death Valley.” The first part, which centers on a struggling writer who moves his family to a gloomy beach town in the Bay State, was filmed throughout Provincetown, with set locations including local landmarks like Pilgrim Monument and Winthrop Street Cemetery.
It’s no secret that Provincetown itself boasts some morbid history. During the 1960s, it was home to the infamous serial killer, Tony Costa. It’s also the site of the Lady of the Dunes, an unsolved, 1974 murder where a still-unidentified woman was found dead on the beach. In fact, some American Horror Story fans theorize that allusions to the latter case may make an appearance in the show’s “Red Tide” portion of this season.
