Halloween in Long Beach!!

Around town there are plenty of things you can do for Halloween, a couple of highlights:

Starting off Friday night, it is not too late to get in on the fun at the Annual Halloween BOO! thrown by yours truly. It is held down at Berth 55 - the old Queens Wharf Restaurant. It is 250+ people. 21+ please, and of course everyone will be in costume. Live band & DJ, food, tarot cards, etc. If your name is on the list at the door, it will still be $20 (otherwise $25 at door). If you'd like to come, email me your name. If you'd like to pay in advance, the link for that plus the address of the event and all other details can be found at: See some of you there.

On Saturday night is the 4th Sstreet Zombie Walk III. Get bloodied up and join the undead for a fun walk presented by and sponsored by GLOBAL Long Beach Arts Month and 4th Street Long Beach! 4th Street will be alive and kicking with zombie festivities all day - businesses from Junipero to Cherry are giving their monthly Last Saturdays event the Undead treatment with live performances, zombie-themed food and drinks, zombie make-up stations, and more.

Finally, watch Edgar Wright's 2004 classic SHAUN OF THE DEAD on a great 35mm print at the historic Art Theatre of Long Beach! Screening is at 9:30pm, giving zombies plenty of time to march down 4th and sneak a few glasses of wine at Art du Vin, or some shots at The Pike!
