A Hearty Halloween

As you undoubtedly know, Halloween is tomorrow. Personally, we’re planning on staying in, watching Top Model, and handing out candy to trick or treaters, because is there anything in this world that’s more adorable than babies in pumpkin costumes? No there is not. Also, we suspect that our days of “I’m a mouse, duh” costumes might be behind us. If you’re feeling more social than we are, however, than put on that sexy chef costume (in case you missed it, the embroidery reads “Chef Boy am I Hot”) and head down to one of these MenuPages-approved parties.

•The reliably fun Brookline spot The Fireplace is hosting a “Nightmare on Beacon Street” from 8pm onward. Prizes will be given in categories ranging from most original costume to best makeup and beyond. There will also be cocktails and munchies, as there should be at any Halloween party worth its candy corn.
•Although The Living Room will be charging a $10 cover for their party, which runs from 7pm to 1am, the money will go to charity (the Ellie Fund, to be exact). Besides, you’ll have plenty of chances to recoup your funds, since the restaurant will be awarding $100 prizes for everything from most original costume to best couple/group costume.
•If we were going to stir ourself from our peanut butter cup induced torpor, we’d probably go over to UpStairs on the Square, which will be hosting a kickass Halloween night, including a $35 three course prix fixe menu, a DJ, and a costume contest, the prize for which is a seven course tasting dinner. What more could you want?
