Johnny's List of Quirky Boston Events: 10/27/05

If you still have your inner child, definitely get to
Salem's Haunted Happenings. Basically it all happens Friday and Saturday evenings. See previous posts also on local Haunted Houses.


For the best party in the area, check out the incredibly expensive
Official Salem Witches Halloween Ball, Oct 28th, which is run by actual Wiccans. A number of other events are happening such as the Dumb Dinner with the Dead on Oct 31st, at which you're not supposed to talk at all. At $100 a plate, it sounds expensive and boring, but that's probably just my ignorance.


As to what to do on Halloween evening itself, I have to admit I'm really lost on this one. Just about every bar on the planet seems to be having a costume party, but do you really want party small on Halloween? Personally I plan to check out the
Wiccan Samhain Magick Circle Ceremony, Oct 31st in Salem, which is open to the public.

For the non-Halloween oriented, catch
Gwen Stefani & Black Eyed Peas on October 31st, at the TD Banknorth Garden, which used to be the fleet center. Tell me if I'm wrong but there is no actual garden or possible reason to call the venue a garden.


Also, in lieu of the East Coast A Capella Summit which seems not to be happening this year, check out
Spookapella III: Five O'Clock Shadow / Duwende, Oct 28th, 8:00 PM @ The Center for Arts in Natick (TCAN), 14 Summer Street, Natick, MA
Contact: (508) 647-0097. The website www.bacs.org has regular a capella information.


Also catch
The Vagina Monologues, Oct 28-Nov 5th, in Holliston, by the Washington Street Players.
