As we all know, Halloween is the holiday of fright, fun, and everything sweet. But even the spookiest of holidays won’t always satiate our artistic side.
If you’re looking for another creative outfit after pulling together your Halloween costume for next weekend, head over to Georgetown Program Board’s table in Red Square this Friday from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. GPB will have free, decorate your own Halloween cookies available—no costume required.
Good vs. evil in the battle for appetites
Feeling like channeling a dashing hero ready to save the day? Perhaps you’d rather let the evil take over you for the evening, like Jekyll and Hyde?
Either way, What’s After Dark and GPB will have you covered during Friday’s “Heroes vs. Villains” party from 10 p.m. to 1 a.m. in Copley Formal Lounge. Prizes for costumes will be awarded. (And of course, you’ll have the chance to enjoy free food.)
Return of the poetic provisions
Unlike a bad B-grade movie from the 1950s, this event doesn’t involve any kind of monster from any sort of lagoon—only the man behind The English Patient.
Tuesday at 8 p.m., the Lannan Center will host Michael Ondaatje in Riggs Library. Head on over for Ondaatje’s reading, but don’t forget to visit the reception that follows.
