1. Washington DC – Pub Dread – A Halloween Themed Pop-Up Bar

From the folks behind the Game of Thrones and Stranger Things Pop-Up Bars, comes PUB DREAD!

Horror fans are cautiously welcome to sip drinks in The Haunted Forest, which features blinking eyes, creepy creatures, and soundtracks that call back to classic horror moments. The Dollhouse features the most disturbing tribute to grandma’s vintage toy collection with dolls that seem to have minds of their own. The Crypt features coffins, tombstones, and room for more to join the dead.

Horror films rule the drink menu, with inspiration taken from childhood favorites and true chillers that still spook adults. A Zombie variation called BRAINS! pays homage to Night of the Living Dead, and is served in a skull tiki mug and topped with a candy brain. The coffee concoction that signifies the start of fall brought forward David S. Pumpkins, a mix of rums, sherry, pumpkin, spice, and coconut.

Geek Night Out is having a meetup at Pub Dread October 8th, 2017 at 1pm.

3. London, UK – The Addams Family in Concert

Film Concerts Live! proudly presents the delightfully twisted comedy fantasy The Addams Family, with composer Marc Shaiman’s charming and imaginative orchestral score performed live to picture!  The all-star cast features Golden Globe nominee Angelica Huston as the alluring Morticia Addams, Raúl Juliá as the suave and devilish Gomez Addams, Christina Ricci in her breakthrough role as daughter Wednesday, and the inimitable Christopher Lloyd as Uncle Fester.

It’s 25 years since wealthy Gomez Addams’ older brother Fester disappeared.  When the family’s lawyer (Dan Hedaya) discovers that the son of a local loan shark bears a striking resemblance to Fester, he hatches a plan to bring Gomez’ long-lost brother back to life in order to take control of the family’s vast fortune.  But the Addams clan soon proves more than the unscrupulous lawyer bargained for.  As the imposter Fester grows closer to the family, the line between impersonation and reality blurs, and he begins to recall memories that he never knew existed.  Could he truly be an Addams after all…?
