Halloween fun for those over 21

You may be too old to trick or treat but Halloween isn’t just for the kids. If you are looking for something to do that’s geared toward adults, there’s ghoulish fun to be had this month. Whether you want to be scared or are just looking for a fun time out, here are a few suggestions for your next date night.

Night at the Boozeum
Thursday, Oct. 25, 7-9 p.m. 
The Children’s Museum of New Hampshire in Dover opens its doors just for the grownups as part of its Throwback Thursday program. Leave the kids at home for a 21-plus night of BOOzy fun. Play with slime, take the Mummy Wrap challenge, eat donuts on a string and play in the exhibits. Be sure to wear your costume (encouraged but not required). Enjoy a cash bar and refreshments or play a tune on a wall-to-wall Music Matrix. 

Evil Dead the Musical
Friday-Sunday, Oct. 19-21, 26-28, and Oct. 31  

Evil Dead The Musical at the Rochester Opera House takes the elements of the cult classic films The Evil Dead, Evil Dead 2, and Army of Darkness, and combines them for a crazy, funny and bloody theatrical experience.  It’s more funny than scary, but it’s the only show with a “Splatter Zone” — a section of the audience that gets covered in fake blood. With this combination of blood, jokes, cheesy effects and musical numbers, Evil Dead The Musical is unlike any live show you’ve ever seen. Cash bar available.

Boos! & Brews
Friday, Oct. 12 and Saturday, Oct. 27 

When you mix spirits with ‘spirits,’ it can be a lot of fun.  Take a two-hour haunted pub-type crawl of Manchester’s Millyard. Hear the stories of murders and crimes of passion of Manchester while sampling adult beverages. This tour takes you off the beaten path and into the dark and hidden side of the Queen City. The stories come alive as presented by colorful guides. You’ll also enjoy up to six samples from two local breweries.
