Donuts and art and cocktails oh my

Leave the Starbursts to the kiddos and indulge in some adult beverages and festive donuts at Glam Doll Donuts’ donut+art+cocktail. Bittercube will serve up cocktails, DJ Bits Bits will be spinning tunes, and artist Scotty Munster (no joke) will showcase his wonderfully weird work.

Costumes encouraged. Proceeds benefit No Kid Hungry

Brit’s Birthday Bash

Brit’s Pub is celebrating their 25th anniversary with Queen and Beatles tribute bands and beer specials. Briton inspired costumes are encouraged so feel free to show off your moves like Jagger or go old school in Shakespearean garb.

Creepy and crawl at Travail

Travail does Halloween like only Travail can, with an all-you-can-eat crawl that encompasses Pig Ate My Pizza, Travail and the Rookery. Tickets include small plates, a buffet, karaoke, photo booth, crazy contests, and of course, this being Travail, interactive food stations.

There will be no formal seating at any of the Travail restaurants that evening.

Northeast Halloween Crawl

Free shuttles will schelp costumed revelers between tap and cocktail rooms throughout Northeast on Halloween. Establishments like Dangerous Man, Fair State, 612 Brew, Bauhaus Brew Labs, Sociable Cider Werks, NorthGate Brewing and Wander North Distillery will feature scary movies, costume contests or dance parties. So throw on your best Hipster Brewer costume and party on.

Summit Halloween (pre) Party

Get the party started at Summit Brewery (which may or may not be haunted) with treats like Oatmeal Stout with Cold Press Coffee, Tollefson Family Pork, costume contests, live music and Saint Paul Kübb Society’s Fall League Kübb-O-Ween Championships.

Eat your veggies

Considering the World Health Organization’s declaration that meat in its many forms may be bad for you, Twin Cities Veg Fest could not be happening at a better time.  Everyone from omnivores to vegetarians to vegans are welcome to peruse exhibitors, snack on samples, listen to speakers, and take in cooking demonstrations featuring vegetarian options.
