Boys & Girls Club Haunted Museum
With kids between the ages 5–12 in mind, the Boys & Girls Club turns the McHenry Museum into a maze of favorite age-appropriate Halloween characters. Live actors portray witches and vampires, putting fun spooks into passersby while ghosts give recommendations on favorite brands of sheet bleach. After emerging onto the Midway, kids play games and decorate pumpkins. The rest of the McHenry Museum will also be open to visitors, putting the biggest scare of all into children: the prospect of learning.
St. Patrick's Day Lucky Fest
What do you call it when 25 pubs spontaneously appear in a city square? A very lucky day. The party runs from 12 p.m. to 2 a.m. at a gallery of custom-made, Ireland-themed bars and restaurants on 11th Street between K and L. But the canvas drinking holes are hardly the most eye-catching part of the party—that honor is a toss up between Grace O'Malley's Fantastic Voyage, a DJ stage shaped like a life-size pirate ship, and the EDM ball held at 51 Fifty Celtic Chaos Irish Castle, a fortress of funk built for one night only.
