Saturday, October 31

For over 10 years, the Film Society has shown The Rocky Horror Picture Show on Halloween along with a simultaneous live shadow cast (performed by Voyeuristic Intentions this year) acting the movie out on stage. What makes the event even more outrageous is the opportunity and encouragement to dress up as wildly as you desire. There will be two showings so put on your best "picture show" costume and get ready for the Time Warp. Time: 7 p.m. & 9 p.m. Cost: $3. Location: Strosacker Auditorium Info:

This year, CWRU won't be celebrating Halloween on The Farm, but will be bringing it back to campus with Halloween at Home. Free food and drinks, a costume contest, pumpkin carving, live music, and other festive activities will be available for the community to enjoy. Also, there will be an opportunity to donate items such as instant stuffing, instant mashed potatoes, and boxes of cornbread to local families for their Thanksgiving dinners. Time: 5 p.m. to 10 p.m. Cost: Free Location: Frieberger Field Info:

While there are countless places to go on Halloween, don't forget that the Grog Shop always knows how to party in style. Dress up and take pictures at the free photobooth, get your fortune read by a palm reader, and enjoy drink specials throughout the night while dancing to Maiden at Midnight playing favorites by Iron Maiden. Time: 10 p.m. to 2 a.m. Cost: $5 w/costume, $8 without costume. Location: The Grog Shop. Info:

Sunday, November 1

The annual Cleveland Restaurant Week will kick off this Sunday with three-course meal specials at some of the best local restaurants.
