Looking for a Way to Celebrate Halloween in Uptown?

Posted by    |    October 31st, 2012 at 4:15 pm

You’ve got some options…

The Nodding Donkey 

Ditch the candy corn and head to The Nodding Donkey in your most creative duds for a Halloween party complete with costume contest. Fishr Pryce will DJ your drink special-filled evening in one of the best bars in Uptown.

Cru Wine Bar

Here’s another excuse to bring out that cat costume for the 10th year in a row. Wear all black and receive %50 off of Cru Wine Bar’s new fall menu. They even brought out some especially spooky named wines like “The Velvet Devil”, “Poizon” Armida and Poggio Anima Asmodeus. If it’s in a wine glass, I’ll drink it.


The Londoner

If you get bored at The Nodding Donkey, just walk a few steps to The Londener for a live DJ, $3 Jameson and a costume party starting at 10 p.m. sharp.

Trophy Room

Uptown’s first bar with a mechanical bull is also the starting point for an epic pubcrawl starting at 5 p.m. More information here.



If you prefer bottle service over a bar crawl, House of Horror at Avenu featuring DJ Scooter is for you. The party starts at 10 p.m. with a $10 cover charge for VIP.

The Old Monk

The Old Monk’s annual pumpkin carving contest is back in action. For $10 you get a pumpkin, a carving kit and a free pint of Guinness, Smithwicks or Black & Tan. The Old Monk will match that $10 and send the proceeds to the North Texas Food Bank.

Let your creative juices flow because they’re going on Facebook. The Old Monk will post the picture of your pumpkin on their page where you and your friends can vote for the best. First place gets $75, second gets $50 and third gets $25.


Trade In Your Ball Gown for Biker Chic at the Second Annual ‘Bad to the Bone’ Event

On Saturday, November 10, trade in the ball gown or tux you normally reserve for swanky occasions for leather jackets, designer jeans and skullcap rings at the second annual Bad to the Bone event benefitting Operation Kindness and the Texas Humane Legislative Network. Most animal lovers take the opportunity to show off their four-legged friend any chance they get. Celebrate your friend and all four-legged friends in need while donning your best attempt at biker chic at the beautiful home turned upscale ‘biker bar’ of Scott and Kelly Hershman, 14918 Lake Forest Drive in Dallas.


See ya there!
