$25 registration for DC Bocce League, fall or winter season ($50 value)
Bocce is like a cross between croquet and Skee-ball—you throw balls toward a target and sabotage the other team’s efforts along the way. Register for the fall season (October 12 to December 15) or the winter (January to March), and prepare to nurse a drink and chat with your teammates at Tom Tom or Pour House while engaging in a little friendly competition.
Entry to the DC Haunted History Race & Costume Bash
If you combined trick-or-treating, the TV show the Amazing Race, and a costume party, you’d have the DC Haunted History Race & Costume Bash. Don a costume and dash around the city, solving clues to find ten of DC’s most haunted sites and earning candy for your smarts as you go. The first ten people back to the starting point win their share of more than $2,500. A dance party follows. Registration is $35 with this deal (normally $70).
$10 for one of two ghost tours from Pub Crawls of Annapolis
Pub Crawls of Annapolis invites visitors on a two-hour pub hop through some of the Maryland capital’s oldest drinking establishments. The Haunted Pub Tour gives you the gory details about the lingering souls that may be watching you while you have your drink, and the Historic Pub Tour offers more history and fewer spirits (of the supernatural kind—they won’t take your beer away). The $10 ticket doesn’t include drinks or gratuity, and you must be 21 or older for both tours.
