Halloween-Inspired Date Ideas for this Weekend

halloween-coupleUndoubtedly, tonight will be the busiest night to celebrate Halloween in Chicago. So then, if there’s a restaurant you’ve been wanting to try or a new movie you’re dying to see and you’d rather avoid the crowds, seeking out the former or the latter would be a smart move this evening.

However, if you’re like me and you’re thrilled by the idea of dressing up with your s/o and showing off each other’s temporary new looks around the city, here are a few ideas that sound like a blast.

Lula Cafe is holding its last Halloween party at its Logan Square restaurant, but it’ll be different than past years. Unlike its former attempts at imitating other popular restaurants, including Taco Hell and the Violent Hour, the owners are celebrating 15 years in business with a Halloween quinceañera party. Festivities begin at 7 p.m., with free appetizers. Plan on getting there early. 7 p.m. Friday; no cover.

Public Hotel’s Library Bar is hosting an Andy Warhol-themed Halloween bash, complete with artist-inspired cocktails and a prize for best costume. Psst: Being a giant soup can is overdone. 8 p.m.; no cover. $28 per person; 10:30 p.m. Friday.

Catch a Halloween-themed burlesque show at the Wicker Park venue known for making sexy funny, Gorilla Tango. The title of the production is too silly for me to name here.

Stephanie Izard’s hosting her own ghoulish party at Little Goat on Sunday, titled Little Goat of Horrors. Purchase $25 tickets in advance here. $25 per person; 6:30 p.m.

An incredibly brave, unwise man named Nik Wallenda will perform two tight-rope walks downtown Sunday evening, starting between 6:30 and 7 p.m. Watch on Wacker Street from Clark to Dearborn, or on Wacker Street from Wabash to State. Or, watch from the comfort and warmth of your couch here.
