The Gallo Center for the Arts houses two state-of-the-art theaters that showcase an abundance of theater, music, dance, and lectures throughout the year. Colorful spins and stiletto-sharp swirls seize the stage in a dizzying display of Argentinean culture with Tango Buenos Aires, and advice aficionados will revel in the clever contemplations of Ann Landers successor Amy Dickinson, whose column is published in more than 200 newspapers nationwide. Music mavens, meanwhile, will bask in the artistic prowess of the Philharmonic of Poland, a powerful acoustic experience helmed by the wand of sonic sorcerer Boguslaw Dawidow that massages eardrums with works by Strauss, Lehar, and Mozart. More hands-on classical connoisseurs will be privy to a fully educational musical experience with Jeffrey Siegel's informative keyboard conversations, which are half witty lecture, half virtuosic performance, and half lesson in remedial fractions.

Ghosts, ghouls, and every creature of the night haunt the downtown streets during The Summoning Halloween Street Party. Here, everything revolves around spooks and scares, from the 15 haunted rooms in the 11th Street parking garage to the women in black who party in Area 52(09). Admission even includes entrance to the renowned Deathworkz Haunted House and access to one of a kind spectacles such as monster wrestling?Frankenstein vs. the Vampire and Freddy vs. Jason. Costumes are encouraged with contests and add to the festive air in the The Pet Semetary dance club and Chuckie's playhouse of Halloween games.

So that guests don't face their fears on an empty stomach, Texas Chainsaw BBQ carves up burgers bathed in a suspiciously red sauce, fueling brave souls on their way to catch some local metal bands at the Hellraiser stage. And to earn their rightful crowns and prove to their parents that they were meant to be together even after death, couples can contend for king and queen of the Zombie Prom.

At Vito's Ristorante, guests must fight the urge to walk into the walls. The restaurant’s gorgeous murals depict the alluring Italian countryside, serving eyes a visual feast of verdant fields, glassy waters, and marshmallow clouds. The aroma of chicken parmigiana and housemade marina sauce serenades olfactory senses from the kitchen, where chefs use time-honored culinary traditions to conjure up the Old-World flavors found in the veal marsala and linguine fra diavolo—spicy marinara over pasta, shrimp, and mussels. A new type of ravioli graces the menu every week, and past daily specials have included lamb chops with polenta and swordfish dressed in mango salsa and a musketeer hat. For a more urban, downtown vibe, Vito Ristorante’s V-Lounge hosts special events where guests can get their fill of libations and entertainment.

The Taproom Pub and Grub keeps appetites at bay with a lineup of pub favorites, including burgers, sandwiches, and salads. But much like the Bill of Rights, the menu here is constantly updated. That certainly explains its diversity, which starts in the appetizer section with Thai tacos loaded with shredded chicken, cabbage slaw, and a spicy sweet-and-sour sauce. Southern influences are seen in the chicken and waffles, sweet-potato cakes served with bacon jam, and Cajun gumbo loaded with saut?ed chicken, sausage, and shrimp.

Whatever type of food patrons choose, they should be able to easily find a suitable beer pairing as The Taproom has both a variety of bottled beers and 21 different beers on tap.

Michael Calder began his pizza-making career in 1973, when he learned how to shape authentic crusts while working at an Italian family’s pizzeria. He put his pizza-crafting expertise to work at his own place when he opened Michael’s Pizza Bar and Grill, where the kitchen prepares specialty pies such as the meat-stacked Michael’s Masterpiece. The vegetarian Green Machine comes adorned with pesto sauce, artichoke hearts, and fresh garlic, while Heart Attack Dogs arrive at tables wrapped in bacon, crowned with cream cheese and honey, and accompanied by ominous organ music. Bartenders can mix dessertinis infused with espresso to follow hearty meals.
