The Founding Fathers held their initial meetings in a neighborhood tavern, which explains why the Declaration of Independence’s first draft had a long, rambling subsection devoted to how powdered wigs are a natural icebreaker. Revolt against the tyranny of boredom with today’s Groupon to the New York City Halloween Pub Crawl on October 28, 29, and 31. Choose between the following options:

Up to 2,000 scarymakers haunt more than 100 Manhattan bars during PubCrawls.com’s Halloween Pub Crawl. Festivities kick off on Friday at 5 p.m. and Saturday at noon in bars such as Village Pourhouse on Third Avenue, giving revelers a preview of the season’s makeup trends and the latest in haute nurse couture. On the holiday proper, the creatively clothed can convene in the ghoulish elegance of Sidebar on 15th Street. The crawl’s cousins wend through the streets until 4 a.m. each night, feeding on $2 drafts and 2-for-1 drink specials. The wearer of the best costume in the event’s 14 cities collects a $10,000 prize, which is an essential component of next year’s ATM costume.
