Whether you think it’s a phony, Hallmark holiday or see it as a genuine opportunity to show that special someone how you feel about them, we got an event for you. There’s lots of burlesque, some great music, comedy, theater, roller derby, a pub crawl, a ghost tour of Grand Central Station and even a dance party in a Russian bath house! We even threw in a couple anti-Valentine’s Day events in there for good measure. Whether you’re in Anchorage or Brooklyn, I’m betting we got something in your neck of the woods.

There are still tickets available for all these events, so hurry up and pick some up before they’re all gone!

Halloween In Your ‘Hood This Weekend!

Halloween is upon us! It’s on a Monday this year so there’s a bunch of events going on this weekend. Although, if you’re a true lover of Halloween, you’ll be out on Halloween proper.

Halloween has its roots in the Celtic festival of Samhain which means roughly, the end of summer. It’s also the name of Glenn Danzig‘s band after The Misfits, for all you lovers of horror-rock out there (see video below). Samhain usually lasted several days and had elements of other festivals’ for the dead. People and their livestock would walk between two bonfires as a cleansing ritual and cast the bones of slaughtered livestock into the flames. The first day of Samhain was October 31st and many of the traditions associated with Halloween come from both the secular Gaelic celebration of Samhain and the Catholic holiday All Saints Day. For example, trick-or-treating bears similarities to the medieval practice of souling, where peasants would go door to door on Hallowmas (November 1), receiving food in return for prayers for the dead on All Souls’ Day (November 2). Similar practices for the souls of the dead were found as far south as Italy. In Mexican tradition, the Day of the Dead or Dia De Los Muertos (November 1) also shares similarities to Samhain and All Saints Day. Read the rest of this entry »
