Halloweek RVA

So we are nearly half way into it - but I wanted to remind everyone about Halloweek RVA! Taste the Local and RVA Magazine present this 10 day long event to celebrate the creative, the gory, and the silly. Can't decide on just one costume? You're in luck because there are plenty of days to get your party on Halloween-style.

Tonight from 7 pm to 10 pm, check out Hallobeer at Mekong for some live tunes and a special beer line up (including RVA's newest brewery Hardywood Park). Thursday night you can catch the Zombie Prom at Empire starting at 10 pm or get down with the Weird Villains Dance Party at Bellytimber! On Friday night, check out WRIR's Monster Mashquerade at The Camel featuring mask and costume contests with music from DJ Pari, Jesse Split & Joanna O, The 27 Club, Canary Oh Canary and DJ Glycenide.

On Saturday, head to Carytown for the annual Richmond Zombie Walk at 1 pm. Once you get your fill of brains, Strange Matter will be hosting the Return of the Living Dead Bands at 10 pm. On Sunday night, Balliceaux will be hosting a double event starting with Seceretly Y'all presenting Richmond Macabre Masquerade followed by PLF's Speakeasy: All Hallow's Eve edition. (I have a few friends who attended the last PLF's Speakeasy and raved about it's awesomeness).

And lastly, on the official Halloween evening, get your dancin' shoes over to The Camel for The Big Payback's Halloween Special. The Big Payback is described as, "a 10 piece musical powerhouse dedicated to recreating the music of James Brown as accurately and as passionately as possible." I am beyond excited about this event.

Halloween not your thing? Don't forget Richmond Restaurant Week doesn't end until Sunday! Hope to see you around this weekend!
