It’s a good thing that Raleigh has some amazing options for you, whether it is a first date or a night out away from the kids. Check out these following ideas here in the Raleigh area and get ready to take your significant other out for some fun on the town!
Halloween is NOT just for kids. We may be too old to go trick or treating but sometimes it can be even more fun with age. Halloween stems all the way back to a pagan festival and it can be celebrated in many ways. It is also the one time of year that you can dress up as anything or anyone you want and not be entirely judged or criticized for it. It is a great excuse to get together with friends and celebrate. Listed here are just a handful of ways you can celebrate this Halloween with friends, whether you have people over or you all decide to go out for some fun.
1. Do you dare to try these dishes?
A Halloween food cook-off is entertaining and surprisingly deliciously. Invite your friends over and have everyone make a spooky themed food, whether it is meatballs that look like eyeballs or cupcakes that resemble spiders. Pinterest has some of the best ideas and recipes for this activity. This is always a fun time from the preparation all the way through the end of the party.
2. Scary Movie Night
Do you usually enjoy scary movies or avoid them altogether? Challenge yourselves to pick out some of the scariest films, turn the lights out, make popcorn, and be on the edge of your seats for hours! Those that are really daring might choose the films that are based on a true story (even creepier).
3. Murder Mystery Party
This takes a little more planning than the others but results in one of the best nights ever. You need a murder plot and friends to invite over that want to take part in the fun. There are even options to hire a company that comes and performs the murder mystery so even you can be in on the game.
Good thing for the internet these days too, which can help you get all the details together if you do decide to plan it yourself.
4. Haunted Houses
These are easy to find this time of year and you can usually try multiple in the area. If scary movies are not enough then go be in one yourself by walking through a haunted house. Just when you think you made it through, be listening for any extra spooks coming from behind the bushes (chainsaws are the worst)! This is a good option when you want to all meet up somewhere or get out of the house for the evening.
5. Pub Crawl with the Trolley Pub Raleigh
Show off your Halloween costume by pedaling around downtown Raleigh on our Trolley Pub. This is similar to a pub crawl, but you get to your destinations quicker AND you get to continue drinking and partying along the way. The best part is that you can purchase individual seats on a mixer tour, which makes this great for singles, couples, or smaller parties of friends as well. We enjoy getting a good laugh out of everyone’s costumes also so don’t forget to dress up for this occasion! Check out our website to secure your spot today!
