Halloween isn't just for kids!

Local haunts know how to throw a Halloween bash

Everybody knows Halloween is fun for kids, but it can be a blast for adults too--especially here on Cape Cod. All across the Cape, clubs, pubs, bars and restaurants are offering a frightening good time for the over 21 crowd.

Halloween is the perfect night (or there abouts) to don a costume and be someone or something else for the evening. Go scary, go funny, try tongue in cheek or just plain randy, but dress up and head out to one of the Cape's many haunts. Just be safe--no drinking and driving and big love and kudos to the designated drivers out there!

Here's a few grown-up events to consider...

October 25-31

  • In Provincetown, where costumes are the craze any time of the year, one night is NOT enough to celebrate Halloween.  Between October 25 and November 3, almost every bar and club on Commercial will glow with gloulish delight. Check out the Provincetown Business Guild's website for a complete schedule of events.
  • The British Beer Company has locations in Hyannis, Sandwich and Falmouth (not to mention several off-Cape spots).  Leading up to the Halloween Howl at each location, the company is hosting Wicked Trivia and other events. Check out the British Beer Company website and choose your favorite spot for more details.
