Halloween Parties for over-21 Halloween revelers in Minneapolis, St. Paul and the Twin Cities.
- Thousands of zombies are expected at this year's Zombie Pub Crawl on October 8. (Somewhere around 20,000 came last year.) Contrary to popular belief, zombies don't just feast on brains, they also enjoy the drink specials at several pubs and bars on the annual Zombie Pub Crawl in West Bank Minneapolis, and downtown St. Paul. This year features live music, entertainment, and a brain eating contest. It's free to dress and a zombie and stumble around with the crowds, but you have to pay for a wristband before you can get into any of the bars or see any of the bands.
