A smorgasbord of dastardly delights await revelers at the Dark Carnival at Villains Tavern this Halloween Weekend. Like something out of Lemony Snicket's feverish imagination, Villains will host a Dark Carnival including a "Red Tent" in the adjacent parking lot hosting a terrifying experience curated by Circus Insidious. Pregnant women and those with heart conditions should think twice before attending these debauched nights of revels, which will be held on Friday October 29 and Saturday October 30.
In keeping with the time of year, the Red Tent will also feature Oktoberfest beers and cocktails from Villains new fall cocktail list. In addition to the standard menu offerings of Villains, gourmet food trucks offering fiendishly delicious delicacies will be stationed out front to feed the hungry hordes.
There will literally be a Freak Show, in addition to Tarot Card readers, face painters, magic shows, stuff on fire and two stages with live music all evening long. In order to help you ease into the creepy environment, their infamous Mix and Match beer and shot combo will be available for $9. Admission is free and the macabre merriment begins at 7 pm both nights.
