This year won't be quite like last year, as mentioned by Silver Spring, Singular, most know by now, there will be no organized "Zombie Walk" like previous years. However, there will be so much else going on this weekend of 10/27 & 10/28! Check out Silver Spring Zombie Walk for a detailed list of events and more info on Zombie Night.
Don't forget McGinty's
On Saturday, October 27, in addition to the Zombie Assemblage at 8pm at Sidebar and the Dance-Off in the Back Room of Jackie's (ie the sideroom of SideBar) going on from 9pm - 12pm, Piratz Tavern is having Zombie Ball as mentioned on the Zombie Walk site. Or, at 9pm you can Zombie crawl to Quarry House Tavern, for drinks and then move onward to Halloween on Screen at AFI.
Also on October 27, McGinty's is having a costume party starting at 9pm. There will be prizes for best costume, creepy Halloween themed drink specials, and DJ Hawk will be throwin' down some dope boo beats. There is a $5 cover for this Halloween party.
Also going on Saturday, October 27, The Society Lounge on Georgia Avenue is having a Halloween Party with DJ Nica. They will have a Sexy Costume Contest and the winner gets a $50 bar tab. Party starts at 10pm. So, theoretically, you could compete in every costume party in the Downtown Silver Spring area on Saturday if you were a slutty Zombie...
Still Undecided on my Costume
I'm still undecided on what I will be for Halloween. Previous costume includes my all time cheapest and best costume idea I've come up with - the "Can you hear me now?" annoying people from the Verizon commercial. My sarcastic "The 1%" costume from last year wasn't nearly as popular as this group costume:
A few ideas that have crossed my path are: SunDrop girl from the commercial, a ghost (old school style), Vicki from Small Wonder - I'm wide open to suggestions on fun, creative, make at home costumes; there's still time. Creative minds, please send me your best suggestions!
The Great Pumpkin
There's still time to get your pumpkin from the Pumpkin Patch at the Woodside Methodist Church. They still have lots of pumpkins so get out there and support the Boy Scouts! Woodside United Methodist Church

Discovering How Tasty Silver Spring Is
Tuesday, November 13 from 5:30pm - 8pm is the 8th Annual "Discover the Taste of Silver Spring." This event will be held at the Discovery Communications building. It's ages 21 and over (cash bar). Tickets seem a little steep, although your ticket includes all the tastes you can eat from many restaurants in the area. They are $60 for Silver Spring Chamber of Commerce members and $70 for non-members. However, if you buy your tickets before October 26, tickets are $50 for members and $60 for non-members. Note that the deadline for this event is November 7 and you must pre-register. They will not accept walk-ins at the door. For more info, visit or contact the Silver Spring Chamber.
That's it for now! Have a happy and safe Halloween!
