Though it's a bummer that Halloween doesn't take place on Friday the 13th this year, it will still fall on the next-best option—Saturday night. To celebrate the special occasion, more than 10,000 costumed carousers will gather to drink, dance, and mingle as part of the 17th annual Nightmare on M Street Bar Crawl. The hoard of zombies and ghouls will swarm more than 30 DC-area bars in Dupont, Gallery Place, and U Street, featuring costume contest and specials on food and popular beers such as Coors Light, Blue Moon, and Redd's Apple Ale. Crawlers can register as early as 3 p.m. for a full 9-hour tour that wraps up at midnight.
