The Fine Print

Halloween celebrates nature's finest masters of disguise, such as the grasshopper, who can blend in with the leaves, and the chameleon, who can change its colors to look like a sexy nurse. Honor the art of shape shifting with today's Groupon: for $12, you get two tickets to the third annual masquerade party at Writers & Books on Saturday, October 29 at 8 p.m. (a $24 value).

The literature lovers at Writers & Books welcome readers to revel and mingle in costumes inspired by their favorite character at the store's annual masquerade. From 8 p.m. to midnight, partygoers of all ages can enjoy a ball with a literary twist that doesn't end in being turned back into a pumpkin carved in the likeness of Mr. Hyde. To prepare for the bash, party planners deck each room in the store—a historic former police precinct building—in the trappings of a genre such as horror, sci-fi, romance, fairytale, or mystery. In addition to macabre games and readings, the spooky soiree will feature raffles and a spirited costume contest. Attendees should bring cash for drinks, raffle tickets, and tipping the scurrying, disembodied hand that mixes the cocktails.
