All The Best Haunts
Medieval Times (2021 N. Stemmons Freeway) doth dare you to adorn yourself in your most triumphant garb and take part in an evening of horse-based revelry. Arrive in a properly foolish outfit and receive “an upgrade to royalty,” which we assume means first dibs at the community bathtub. Tickets are cheap for the night, slashed down to $29.95 if booked online (use the code 29HWEB) and come with all of that festive stuff, like face painting and candy. The show starts at 7:30. Get tickets at medievaltimes.com. Hightail your sweet little Hall and Oates-loving self to the Double Wide (3510 Commerce St.) for East Dallas’ biggest Halloween party. Headliners and Darryl and John tribute artists The Rich Girls will leave you swaying to “Sara’s Smile,” shaking a tail feather to “You Make My Dreams” and generally ignoring “Adult Education.” They’ve got company with Party Static and ’cause Halloween’s on Thursday, you’ll get an extra special (read: drunk) installment of Good Luck Karaoke, plus the big costume contest. The karaoke’s free and the show’s $7. Visit double-wide.com. Deep Ellum Brewing Co.’s (2823 St. Louis St.) weekly tour gets a little something extra Thursday, thanks to those helpful dark forces behind Deepo’Ween. Ten bucks gets you three pint tokens, a collectable glass, live music, a tour and a costume competition, making this the cheapest way to get drunk in Dallas on Halloween. It runs from 6 to 9 p.m. Visit deepellumbrewing.com. Over at Sissy’s Southern Kitchen (2929 Henderson Ave.), you get poultry AND a promenade at the Halloween Hoedown. It’s hillbilly-themed, so if you’re trying to win first prize in the costume contest (200 bucks), you’ll want to convert that griffin outfit into a chicken or some other barnyard resident. If you want to stay for dinner, reservations are encouraged. Otherwise, just freeball it. Visit sissyssouthernkitchen.com. The Dallas Comedy House Film Society has been jostling the horror genre through improv. Thursday is your last chance to see the crew move through a brand-new, completely weird, audience-inspired sketch, based on those cliche elements we align with horror movies. (You know, don’t be a slut and all of that junk.) Watch the DCH kids flip those tropes around and pants ’em. Tickets cost $5 to $7 for this 8 p.m. show. Bonus: DCH comics have built a haunted house, and you can roam the sucker before the show. Stick around afterward for a costume contest. Visit dallascomedyhouse.com.
