Halloween doesn't have to be just fun for the kids. Each of these events, and so many more offer something for adults to be a part of and enjoy just as much as trick-or-treating for kids. If you've ever need motivation or needed something to do for Halloween, we've got you covered.
Citizen Public Cocktail Pairing Dinner--Tues., Oct. 30
Aside from the popular, but common pumpkin patches that we are able to visit and pose next to, Citizen Public House intuitively is taking it to another level by basing a six-course dinner off this powerhouse of a crop--1.5 billion pound of pumpkin are produced each year.
The dinner includes curried pumpkin soup, pumpkin gnocchi with toasted molasses butter and Gorgonzola, and even a pumpkin waffle that sounds amazingly rich and delicious. With such a creative and tasteful menu, that's scary good, seats are sure to fill quickly.
Putting the food aside, just momentarily, guests will also be able to decorate miniature pumpkins in between courses and experiment with unique cocktail pairings with each course chosen by Citizen Public House.
