A good scare can cure hiccups and stir a jolt of adrenaline useful for taking on hordes of mad donkeys. Prepare yourself for the equine eschaton with today's Groupon: for $12, you get admission for two to a haunted house, plus $15 worth of Halloween goodies at Piedmont Avenue Pumpkin Patch (a $25 value). This Groupon expires October 31, 2010, also known as National Slather Yourself in Treacle Day.
Piedmont Avenue Pumpkin Patch proffers haunted-house tours and wicked wares for a Halloween one-two punch. With admission for two ($5 per person) to the haunted house, you'll perambulate through a dark corridor filled with eerie echoes, a spider's lair, maze, and shrinking hallway. Take along a date for a terrifying trip that incites handholding, arm squeezing, and tentacle twisting. Afterwards, cheer yourself up with shopping for autumnal décor, such as gourds ($2–$4), corn ($3), carving kits ($3–$8), and pumpkins in a variety of sizes from miniature muskins ($1) to basketball-sized ($5–$7) to large Cinderellas ($7–$25) and more. You'll also find decorations such as wigs, masks, spider webs, and witches to take home and keep locked in the attic for all your spell-casting needs.
Seven Yelpers give the Piedmont Avenue Pumpkin Patch an average of four stars.
