Autumn, the season for apple cider, pumpkin spice lattes, corn mazes, and Halloween. We're getting into the holiday spirit with a fun night full of games and prizes!

  • Come show off your greatest Halloween look and take part in our costume contest, where the winning look gets to take home a prize! 
  • Get a glimpse into your future with tarot and horoscope readings!
  • Gather 'around for the National Murder Lovers Club as the ghost of Edgar Allan Poe calls upon famous horror writers and villains to try and find his killers. It's a literary-themed round of mafia! Work with (or against) your friends to figure out who did the crime before they strike again!
  • Spin the Wheel of Misfortune to see what fate lies in store for you! Will it be a delightful prize or an undesired curse?
  • We'll also have some spooky writing activities to help craft your perfect nightmare!

Delicious treats will be provided by Max Brenner and photobooth provided by OM Digital!
