Quick Bites: Eat No Evil

You may have plans for Halloween—Mon., Oct. 31—and for the Friday or Saturday before Halloween (or even all three nights!). But what about the night before Halloween, traditionally known as a night for mischief and often called “Devils’ Night”?

Well, Hotel Congress’s hasn’t forgotten about this “holiday.” The folks at Cup Café have some mischief (the good kind) in store for anyone who wants to celebrate gastronomically: The Devil’s Night Dinner, a fancy four-course meal with a Halloween theme, entertainment and even a dress code—wear black!

The three dinner courses are all cleverly planned around the theme of the three wise (and creepy) monkeys. First, sit down to a “See No Evil” course featuring crudo of Spanish mackerel (we do think raw fish looks kinda gross) with a blood-orange-and-ginger glaze; then just try to “hear no evil” during the second course, including dishes with “sizzling mushrooms” and “crispy duck skin.” Of course the “Speak No Evil” course includes tongue. But after that diners are rewarded with the Devil’s Dessert: “pumpkin trifle and pumpkin ice cream with marshmallow sauce and shaved chocolate (plus “squid ink crumble,” whatever that is). And all four courses are paired with fancy Halloween-themed cocktails.

Despite all that talk of evil, we promise the food and drink will be good.

The dinner takes place outside in the dark, on the Hotel Congress Plaza, and the entertainment is dark, too—dark magic, that is, performed by Tucson’s own Magic Kenny Bang Bang.

The Devil’s Night Dinner starts at 7 p.m., Sun., Oct. 30, at the Cup Café, 311 E. Congress St., and costs $65. Get more information and make reservations at hotelcongress.com/devils-night-dinner.
