One Mad Halloween Party

One of the questions we are often asked is “is there anything fun to do for 4th of July/Labor Day/Halloween/President’s Day in Pittsburgh?” Well, we may never have a good answer for how to celebrate President’s Day but we do have some answers for Halloween.  This year there are a TON of great ways to celebrate Halloween.

The fun loving folks from Mad Mex are putting together a big bad Halloween party for Monday, October 31st – at the new, super large and super great Mad Mex Location in Shadyside.  $20 gets you in the door and includes snacks a plenty.  Costume contests, DJ and drink specials.

Laser Gaga Costume Contest @ The Carnegie Science Center

Poker Face (Lady Gaga song)

Yes, its true the Carneige Science Center has a laser show set to Lady Gaga, appropriately named Laser Gaga.  In honor of Halloween and all things lady Gaga – the Science Center is hosting a Laser Gaga Costume Contest – put on your best poker face and head down to the science center – there will be prizes for the best costumes.

Please note the fine print on this one – sorry folks – don’t wear meat to the science center:

  • While we encourage your costumes to be creative, they must be appropriate for a family-friendly establishment.
  • Costumes must NOT feature organic materials such as raw meat, anything alive, expose skin in a provocative manner, or use offensive language or graphics.
  • Any masks worn should not cover the entire face.
  • Carnegie Science Center has the right to refuse any costume that it deems inappropriate.
