When: Sat., Oct. 30 2010
Halloween evolves as we mature through the years: Somewhere along the line, our innocent hunts for candy turn into two-day benders. But that makes Halloween's graceful landing on the weekend this year a very good thing for us mature folk. Following are the downtown spots we'll be hitting Saturday — a different party for every hour! • The fun at Liquid (1212 West Sixth St., 216-479-7717) starts at 7 p.m. with three DJs and best-costume giveaways — in addition to a "Wicked Forest" theme over at Ultra.
• 806 Wine and Martini Bar (806 Literary Rd., 216-862-2912) will feature Halloween-inspired drinks and a costume contest beginning at 8 p.m.
• The House of Blues (308 Euclid Ave.) is hosting Al Figer's Ninth Annual Costume Party, which kicks off at 9 p.m. with a $7 fee.
• Edison's Pub (2373 Professor Ave., 216-522-0006) gets rolling at 10 p.m. with a Great Pumpkin Party complete with live blues music and a "Seven Deadly Sins" costume contest — plus, if you dress up as Charlie Brown, you get $1 off drafts all night. — Reed Hazen
