It's almost that time of the year again: A time where it's appropriate for adults to play dress-up and scare kids.
Halloween is in our midst and you don't to be the one person with nothing to do on the scariest day of the year—or worse, be the only person out without a costume. If you're still trying to figure out what you're up to on Oct. 31 and the days leading up, fear not (actually, be very afraid), because Hotel Congress, 311 E. Congress St., has got your back with a Hallo-weekend of things to do.
This weekend of spooks starts on Saturday, Oct. 29 at the historic hotel with Nightmare on Congress St. This 21 and over event will feature music from seven bands, a DJ and, of course, a costume contest with the chance to win some serious swag. The cover charge is $6 in advance or $8 the day of.
On Oct. 29, get groovy with Yeasayer at Club Congress starting at 7 p.m. Anyone 16 and over is welcome to rock out with this Brooklyn-based band. This event will cost you $26 but if you want to go to free a CD release, Belinda Esquer will be doing just that in the Congress plaza at 7 p.m.
Congress will still be going strong on the Sunday before Halloween. Celebrate Hallow's Eve at Congress's Devil's Night Concert with the Supersuckers, Reverend Peyton's Big Damn Band and Jesse Dayton to get you spooked up for Monday night's frights. The doors will open at 7:30 p.m. for this 21+ event and tickets range from $8 to $10.
On the night that everyone has been waiting for, Congress has got a rad dance party planned for your night out. Come in costume on Halloween night to be entered into a drawing to win $500 among other rad swag. This spooky evening is 21 and up and will kick off at 8 p.m. Make sure to register for $8 or pay $10 at the door.
