As you all know today is Halloween - the fun-filled silly holiday where we try to look scary cool (and only some succeed).
Since most of the big Halloween parties have now passed (this Saturday and Sunday), tonight is a little more low key and devoted to the kiddies. But...there's still plenty of fun stuff to get involved in and here's a very short list of some quick things you can do to ring in the Halloween spirit.
1. Get a spooky looking cupcake or cake from Martha's bakery - they have a new variety with shaved chocolate on top, which is fantastic - 36-21 Ditmars Blvd, Astoria. 718.545.9737
2. Enjoy specialty drinks at Mojave and some free candy to boot - while their big Day of the Dead party was this Saturday, they're still ringing in Halloween, so pop in, have a bit of their delish food and soak in the festive atmosphere - 22-36 31st Street, Astoria. 718.545.4100
3. Party it up at Hell Gate Social's Halloween bash, which starts at 9 p.m. with live music, $3 drafts and no cover - costumes are a must of course. Thanks for the tip, Meg. 12-21 Astoria Blvd, Astoria. 718.204.8313
Whatever you do have a safe and wonderful time!
