Now that Halloween Part I is over, it is time to plan for Part II. Since there are so many great events going on Halloween night, this will be your guide for this Thursday, October 31.
Although Halloween falls on a Thursday, there are five great events to choose from. That is a lot! Chronologically, the first event of the evening is A Nightmare on Highland Ave. The pub crawl, produced by Markster Con and hosted by Diesel Filling Station, will start at 7 p.m. and end at 3 a.m. Next, The Shelter will open its doors at 9 p.m. for a special Halloween edition of their Thursday weekly ’80s and ’90s party. At the same time in East Atlanta, Pandemonium will be taking over Mary’s for a Glam and Glitter Rock Dance Party. For a change of scenery, you can visit The Shelter’s resident DJ Silk Wolf at MJQ for Party Monster, starting at 10 p.m. Last but certainly not least, Secretroom is hosting Costume Club at Jungle, featuring Blazed Beauty of Miami.
