6 things you need to do in Dallas for Halloween weekend

Event of the Week
It may not be a costumed affair (though you could make it one!), but you shouldn't miss the Untapped Music Festival (Nov 1st) with 80 breweries with more than 300 beers ready for the sampling. Said music will be headlined by Cake, and there'll be plenty of tasty food (also cake?!) along with the aforementioned SO MUCH BEER!

Thursday, October 30th: If you want to do a bit of pre-gaming for All Hallows Eve then do so at The People’s Last Stand's Halloween party. They will have complimentary food, a cauldron of custom crafted cocktails, music by DJ Blake Ward, and they will be showing classic slasher movies. On top of all that, the first 200 guests will receive two free drinks, and prizes will be given for best costume.

Friday, October 31st: All the things you love about Meddlesome Moth will be in full effect this Friday at their Halloween Spectacle. The usual suspects will be there: incredible food, quality craft lineup -- but this week will be even more special with Jester King and Prairie Breweries co-hosting a special event. Josh Cockrell (who does the art for the Jester King bottles) and Colin Healey (co-founder and artist for Prairie Artisan Ales) will have their art on display, and there will be 18 different brews (six from Jester King, six from Prairie, and six special guest taps). Accompanying all that awesomeness will be live music by Garrett Crowell and DJ Cee Pee.

Friday, October 31st - Saturday, November 1st: Wild Salsa is hosting a Dia De Los Muertos party on Friday AND Saturday night. The restaurant is decorated and ready to go, and if you show up in a costume you can enjoy $2 margaritas both days. They'll also be giving away prizes if you make with the Instagrams.

Saturday, November 1st: Dallas is one of only four cities that was selected for the inaugural Chive Festival. Eight acts on two different stages await you, and here will be a lot of beer, a lot of food, a lot of music, and plenty of good times. There are VIP tickets available, which grant you access to free food, free beer/cocktails, and air conditioned bathrooms... which is probably worth the price on its own.

Sunday, November 2nd: What happens when you combine a pork dish made from "The King of Barbecue", Pete Jones’ grandson, Samuel Jones; sides made by Jack Perkins of Slow Bone; desserts from The Swiss Pastry Shop; and beer from Four Corners? We’re not 100% sure, but it's all happening at Dia De Los Puercos, and it’s definitely something you shouldn't miss.
