If you haven’t made plans yet for Halloween, be mindful that time is running short. Here are two more fright night possibilities that really capture the spirit of the holiday.
The aptly named The Cannibal, a sister restaurant to Resto, is featuring dinner along with screenings of three appetite-inducing horror films, The Shining, Texas Chainsaw Massacre, and Friday the 13th. The dishes du jour—blood-sausage pie, blood-and-bacon waffles and roasted sheep’s head—are the perfect complements to the blood-soaked goings-on on the big screen.
Showings are at 6, 8, and 10 p.m. The first screening is tonight, October 27, with the main event scheduled for the 31st. Call 212-686-5480 for prices and to reserve. The Cannibal, 113 E 29th Street, bet Lexington and Park Aves.
Luckily, neither of the events at The Cannibal fall on Sunday, October 30, which leaves the night open for “Midnight Mass” at The Meat Hook, in Brooklyn. The event, which is described as a “F***ed Up Family Function” suggests that maybe your best bet is to leave the kiddies at home. (Also, it’s a school night.) The menu, by Lee Tiernan, chef of Fergus Henderson’s St. John Bread & Wine, is yet tobe finalized but promises to feature “lots of blood.” You can also look forward to a “steamy cauldron” of specialty cocktails.
The cost per person is $120. Tickets are obtainable here. The Meat Hook, 100 Frost Street, Brooklyn, 718-349-5033.
