Halloween Plans: It’s Never too Early to Choose Your Local Haunt

Halloween Plans: It’s Never too Early to Choose Your Local Haunt

by: Mac Chavez

Like a fine glass of aged Franzia, Halloween is one of those holidays that seems to get better with age. Sure, as a child you get to dress up as a cute goblin or a scary vampire and troll around the neighborhood for treats and all is right in the world when you follow the simple formula: Dress up in costume + ring doorbell to ask for treats = pure bliss.
Alas, after a certain age – that bloody adolescent period where if you dress up – it’s considered lame and you’re viewed as some miscreant trying to simply cause problems, Halloween starts to lose its luster that you craved as a child. I know, ages 13-18 were rough years for me as well.

But then, then there’s that glorious 21+ period when Halloween is majorly badass. Not only do you get to dress in whatever costume you choose (I normally go with the tasteful yet slutty route – just being honest), but you get to showcase your love and appreciation for Halloween with the added treats that are “adult only” (maybe…perhaps this includes alcohol) and for some of you lucky fellas, you’ll even snatch up a few tricks as well. Halloween is overall a win-win for everyone.

With less than two weeks before what is sure to be a whirlwind when it comes to Halloween weekend, it’s never too early to plan out what you and your band of misfits wish to plunge into. With that being written, here are some hot spots that may tickle your fancy:

Ghost Ship VII: Asylum
For the first time ever, Ghost Ship is being held on a two-day run which means you have double the opportunity to experience one of the Bay Area’s most notorious events. With more than 70 of the finest DJ’s of the Bay Area, Ghost Ship will also feature a large-scale production showcasing the art community, a daytime preview with a hay maze and trick-or-treating for the kiddos, and a night of fantastical decor that will make you feel like you’re in an ultimate universe. Ghost Ship VII is held in the Dogpatch neighborhood of the city at Pier 70.

Mr. Nobody’s Spookeasy Halloween Spooktacular
You have four evil nights to experience the spectacle that is Mr. Nobody’s Spookeasy – from October 30th to November 2nd. This particular event is the total package: A five-hour event made up of a comedy/vaudeville show as well as spookeasy themed costume ball and dance party. There is definitely a dress-code issued to partake in the spookeasy as is stated on www.spookeasysf.com, “20s-30s Era Attire, Bawdy Barbary Coast, Speakeasy Opulence, Glittery Flappers and Feathery Showgirls, Bootleggers, ‘Spooky’ Cartoon Cosplay, “ToonTown” characters, and Classic 30’s era Horror Film. Vintage, Retro, Formal Wear and cocktail dresses are all totally acceptable.” There are only 300 tickets available each night for this event held in Chinatown’s Great Star Theater, so it is best to purchase your ticket sooner than later.

cocktail party begins at 8pm
The Greek Star Theatre
636 Jackson Street, San Francisco CA



Dr. Jekyll & Mr. Hyde – film with organ
For those of you who are more drawn toward spending your evening watching the spine-tingling silent classic film, Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde, then go to the Davies Symphony Hall on Halloween night. The Ruffatti organ accompanies the restored classic that stars the legendary actor, John Barrymore, and this eerie screen adaptation of Robert Louis Stevenson’s classic is a solid way to spend your Halloween if you want something a bit more low-key. Tickets start out as low as $20.

Friday October 31, 2014 – 8pm
Davies Symphony Hall
Grove Street, between Van Ness and Franklin
San Francisco, CA
(415) 864- 6000



And last but certainly not least, if you find yourself stumbling around the Castro, stop on by Beaux (located at 2344 Market Street) because that is where I’ll be bartending in most likely a slutty superhero costume. It’ll be Halloween so I can get away with it. Our Andrew Christian sponsored Manimal Halloween party with have music provided by local DJ, Ms. Jackson, GoGo beasts, wickedly strong drinks, and I’m sure some hot tricks to choose from as well.

Friday October 31, 2014 – 9pm to 2am
2344 Market Street, San Francisco
