Halloween is right around the corner! Hopefully you have your costume and are ready for some good scares this week…as well as some good fun!
On Wednesday, hang out in Oakwood for The Nights of the Arts. Do all those political commercials have you confused on how to vote on election day? If so, make your way to the Updayton Candidate Forum. Or make your way to the Schuster Center for Tyler Perry’s ‘The Haves and the Have Nots’.
On Thursday, support a great cause by attending the Clothes That Work Fashioning Futures Modeling Success Luncheon at Sinclair’s Ponitz Center. Get out that Halloween costume and join some great young professionals for the Generation Dayton Costume Party at The Moraine Embassy. Enjoy Half-Price Wine Night at Coco’s Bistro…”wine not?” At the Dayton Racquet Club, enjoy their Dinner & Goose Island Beer Tasting with New Chef Jack Skilliter. And at the Victoria Theatre, you will be able to have An Evening with David Sedaris.
On Friday after work, participate in the Oregon Arts District Walking Tour. There are plenty of spooky/Halloween-themed activities on Friday including the Halloween Party Wine Tasting at Emporium Wines/Underdog Cafe; Horrorama 2011 at Englewood Cinema; Ghosts, Cemeteries and Murders Walk at Courthouse Square; the Haunted Butcher House; Mayhem & Mystery Dinner Theatre: ‘Costume Carousing’ at the Spaghetti Warehouse; the Land Of Illusion Haunted Scream Park; and Slasher: A Horrifying Comedy at UD…I think I would need the comedy to put up with the horror. And finally, in theater news, you will be able to see Lost in Yonkers (Dayton Theatre Guild) or Opera Theatre: Opera Scenes (Wright State).
On Saturday, if you’re a 5K runner with an extreme sense of adventure, then you will want to participate in the Swamp Stomp Mud Challenge Event. You may not be able to afford a trip to Italy so instead, make your way to Jay’s Restaurant for their Italian Wine Luncheon. Saturday is also all about Halloween, as it is the night for the famous Hauntfest in the Oregon District. In addition to Hauntfest, there are many other Halloween-themed events/activities for Saturday including the ‘PhilharMonster’ Halloween Concert at the Schuster Center; the 1st Annual Tailgate of Terror at the Yellow Cab Building; the 3rd Annual Boo & Bruise in the Oregon District; a Ghosts, Cemeteries and Murders Walk at Courthouse Square; Spooktacular at SideBar; the Dayton Philharmonic’s Bride of Frankenstein at the Schuster Center; and Howl-O-Ween at the Boonshoft Museum (a family friendly event).
On Sunday, make your back to the Oregon District (if you even left from Saturday night) for a Walking Tour. Get a group together and enjoy a Segway Tour of Downtown Dayton. (I was actually just talking to some people who went on one of these and said it was a fun experience!) And if you enjoy theater, then check out Lost in Yonkers (Dayton Theatre Guild) or Monty Python’s Spamalot (Schuster Center).
And now it’s time for the Dumb Joke of the Week. Drum roll please…
What do you call a witch at the beach? A sand-witch.
These are just a few best bets from the DMM Calendar. There are plenty more events listed there, so if you haven’t, I encourage you to check it out today! Also, if you have an event to share or promote, please submit it– it’s great marketing and better yet, it’s FREE! And finally, if you have a dumb joke to share, I’m all ears!
