It’s Halloweekend and we’re delving deep into visions of surreality. Nothing is what it seems and everything is real. : : : COSTUMES ARE MANDATORY FOR ENTRY : : : Come as your own neurotic nightmare, psychedelic seduction, club kid candy flipped clown, magical monster or best bad trip.

A Costume Dinner Party with Salt Cathedral
Le Fanfare – 1103 Manhattan Ave – Greenpoint
Summer has come and gone, but luckily enough The Wild Honey Pie has just the event that is sure to relinquish your post-September sadness. Celebrate the season of spooky movies, yummy candy and sweater weather with the eclectic, jazz-influenced pop duo, Salt Cathedral. This Halloween night, put on a costume and join us at Le Fanfare where we will be drinking delicious, spine-tingling cider and beer and feasting on three courses of tasty Italian food. We all hope to see you on Halloween night in your best costume!
