From dog costume parties to thousands of glowing pumpkin orbs at the Minnesota Zoo and haunted houses galore, Halloween is a holiday full of events. No matter what festivities are undertaken, one thing is for sure: food and drinks will be required to fuel the fun. There is no shortage of establishments across the Twin Cities that are taking things to the next level.

Voodoo on the Bayou Halloween Soiree at 4Bells

On Halloween night, 4Bells is hosting a soiree from 7 p.m. to 11 p.m. on their picturesque rooftop. Guests get a punch cocktail on the house and can enjoy New Orleans-themed spooky cocktails. Two dollars of each drink sold will be donated to the Suicide Awareness Foundation.

Halloween at Marv’s by Marvel Bar

With a cryptic description that offers little beyond nothing that event is back, prepared to offer brandy, and “more Wisconsin than ever” with a mention of Buck Hunter to follow, bring a healthy amount of curiosity to the Halloween day celebration that kicks off at 5 p.m.

Fright Night at Loring Pasta Bar

While Loring is bringing in music options galore this Halloween, it’s taking the spook to another level. At midnight The Satanic Temple MN will perform an “unbaptism”. Ticket holders can also expect a photobooth and a spooky prize raffle to boot.

Halloween Party at Lakes Tavern and Grill

The best part? There’s a canine costume contest in which the best dressed pups will walk away with gift cards for their effort. This October 29th event kicks off at 5 p.m. and concludes at 9 p.m. with food and drink specials throughout the night.

The Minnesota Zoo’s Jack o’ Lantern Spectacular

Out in Apple Valley, the massive zoo has gone all out with thousands of intricately carved pumpkins. Buy tickets ahead of time to go wandering around the grounds and take in the flickering lights.
