A Spooktacular Halloween in Astoria

Happy almost Halloween Astorians!  As I usually do, I've prepared a menu of festive Halloween to-dos happening in and around Astoria.  It's great that the celebration falls on a Saturday this year, which means tons of fun parties, drinks specials and costume fun.  And just in case you're wondering, that's a picture of me in my friend Moses' Freddy mask.  Thought it made my Bond Girl outfit a little zestier.  Whatever you end up doing, hope it's spooktacular!

Cavo - The celebration starts early this year and you can either come by on Thursday, Friday or Saturday.  Each night promises a different style of music and costume fun - including Friday and Saturday night costume contests with some really great prizes including $1,000 in cash.  42-18 31st Ave, Astoria, NY 11103. 718.721.1001
