You got your costume and gave out the best candy to trick-or-treaters, but do you have plans for the most spooktacular night of the year? If not, travel to the depths of Thalia Hall and celebrate the historic horror of Haunted Punch House. The normally warm and inviting basement bar will get a scary makeover, transforming into a Haunted House. Halloweenies can try special cauldrons of punch, look into their future with a tarot card reading by a live fortune teller, ask a Ouija board questions and participate in a scary story and costume contest for special treats. Contest winners will receive $100 gift card to Dusek’s and a pair of tickets to a Thalia Hall concert of their choosing.

To calm nerves, each $22 ticket includes a Lagunitas beer or Letherbee Gin Punch. Tickets are currently sold out for the late showing, but still available for 7p.m. as of this post. Punch House then opens up to public for all ghouls at midnight.

Punch House is located at 1227 W. 18th St.
