8pm – Another event at the Maryland Science Center is one of the city’s biggest parties. From the rooftop dance party, to a Talking Heads tribute set, your ticket gets you access to tons of frightfully fun activities. A VIP pass even lets you skip the drink line!
10pm – Looking for a slightly smaller party? Check out Barcocina’s Halloween event. A $40 ticket gets you access to an open bar with music by DJ Mic_L. It’s a great place to party with your ghouls.
