Monday, October 27

HALLOWEEN MOVIES: Dodge City continues its Halloween Movie Mondays with screenings of Are You Afraid of the Dark?, The Witches, The Craft, and Suspiria. If you can sit through all of those, you either really like scary movies or you like homemade sloppy Joes, popcorn, candy, chili cheese dogs, and cheap High Life/whiskey shot combos. Free. 8 PM.

Tuesday, October 28

DRAG QUEENS: The annual Drag Queen High Heel Race down 17th Street is this week—you’re welcome to run in it, but watching is probably just as fun. Before the race, there will be a parade, and afterward you can bet on some drinking and dancing. Free. 7 PM.

HALLOWEEN: The Dignitary is hosting a Halloween happy hour to raise money for early childhood education support for at-risk children—each $15 entry buys a child a backpack filed with school supplies. There’ll be door prizes, special Halloween cocktails, lots of decorations, and people wearing either costumes or orange and black. Tickets ($15) are available online. 6:30 PM.

Wednesday, October 29

TRIVIA: Sixth & I Synagogue hosts Trick or Trivia, which is mostly about trivia rather than tricks (though you are encouraged to wear a costume). If you’re into ghosts and goblins and horror movies and candy, this is probably designed just for you. We, the Pizza will provide food for everyone who plays. Tickets ($15) are available online. 7 PM.

Thursday, October 30

COMEDY: Bier Baron hosts HA!lloween, a theme party/standup comedy show in which everyone should get dressed up and get absolutely slayed by the comedians, in the safest possible way. Tickets ($10) are available online. 6:30 PM.
