Wicker Park Bucktown Insider Weekend Guide - Halloween Edition - 10/28/11

Thyra DeCicco - Saturday, October 29, 2011
October 27, 2011
 

Good morning and welcome to this week's edition of your  Insider Weekend Guide. This week our focus is on Halloween and the festive events happening throughout the neighborhood.


But a little bit of spooky trivia first: did you know a few of our businesses have claims of being haunted? Our neighbors at The Congress Theatre were featured in a Ghost Hunters episode in 2009 due to the paranormal activity being reported there. But that's not all. In the 1970's a man was shot and killed at Bucktown's Club Lucky. They still have the evidence of the gunshots in the bar. And at night, when the employees are getting ready to close, they occasionally hear footsteps walking in the bar. But of course... no one is there. Just a few stories to set the mood for the week.

 

As always, there are many fantastic events happening throughout the neighborhood and we're happy to be your Guide. Almost every bar is having a party but there's so much more. Our picks are included below. Have a terrific weekend and we'll see you in the neighborhood.

  Halloween Bar Events

Almost every bar is having a Halloween Party and/or costume contest so you really can't miss if you head to any bar in the neighborhood on Saturday night.

But there are other events planned as well including:  Lottie's Road Trip to the haunted house Screams in the Park tonight!

 

  Pumpkin Party - Small Bar

Looking for something a little different than the traditional Bar Halloween Party?  Head to Wicker Park's Small Bar. Small Bar is known for their soccer - and great beer. And this weekend Small Bar will be hosting their Pumpkin Party. You can try a variety of pumpkin beer, candies and cupcakes.
