What to say when you've had Hocus Pocus on repeat since Sept. 1st:

Same...We're diving headfirst on a broomstick wearing a sweater and sipping a pumpkin beverage into October. We'll be celebrating our favorite month with 4 fall Halloween parties + a Halloween book club, so don't ghost, RSVP to these awesome events: Halloween Taco TuesdayHalloween Tacos & MargsScary Stories Book Club + Halloween PartyHaunted Lobby Party and our 3rd Annual Day of the Dead Taco Party. On top of all the Halloween fun, enjoy 2 spookily fun fitness things - Lift n' Learn and 3 day Equinox experience - and 1 ghostly giveaway of Free Wednesday Tix to Laugh Factory.

What to say when your coworker says Happy Taco Tuesday:

One upping you with a HALLOWEEN Taco Tuesday...When Halloween and Taco Tuesday meet, it's such a treat. Come celebrate in the lobby at 2850 N. Sheridan on Tuesday, October 22nd from 5:30 - 7pm ish (or until the tacos run out) for a taco bar from Flaco's Tacos with all the fixins, along with a bartender serving up custom Berry Scary cocktails. Don't disappear, RSVP here!

What to say when your mom sends you a new fall sweater:

Score, def wearing this to the taco party...Pumpkins, boos, and sweaters. October is unashamedly our favorite month, and we're celebrating in our favorite way: with a taco and margarita party, BOO-yay! Head to the lobby at 18 E. Elm on Wednesday, October 23rd from 5:30 - 7pm ish (or till the tacos run out). If you don't want the tacos and margs to ghost you, then RSVP here and get in line early. 

What to say when you accidentally watch a scary movie alone:

Eek...How about reading a scary book and coming to book club instead? If you're into candy corn and haunted hallways, you definitely don't wanna ghost on October's book club. We'll be reading The Shining and meeting to chat about Stephen King's classic on Monday, October 28th at 1036 N. Dearborn. We'll have all the Halloween party musts: including blood red sips, candy candy candy and Frankensandwiches (just made those up, but they're gonna be good). RSVP here to let us know you're interested, and get more info!

What to say when your friends wanna go to a haunted house:

How about a haunted lobby... The lobby at 443 W. Wrightwood is a vintage beaut...and also possibly haunted with a sordid mob past?  We can't know for sure, but we can take advantage of celebrating the spookiest season with a Halloween party in this mysterious lobby. Join us in costume on Wednesday, October 30th from 5:30 - 7pm ish (or till the tacos run out) for a Halloween taco bar with all the boos and Berry Scary sips for the spooky booze. Apparate on over to this haunted evening of fun!

What to say when you're ready to start Halloween:

Start it with us! It's our 3rd Annual Day of the Dead Halloween Taco Party, and if that isn't a mouthful then *casual ghost shrug.* This is always a good time to celebrate Halloween + Day of the Dead while eating tacos, sipping margs and Instagramming the Halloween decked out lobby. Ride your Uber broomsticks on over to 25 E. Delaware on October 31st (Halloween, duh) from 5:30 - 7pm ish (or the tacos run out). Costumes strongly encouraged (so strongly that we already cast a spell). 

What to say when you've got energy to burn from all the fun:

Work it out...Take advantage of a free 3 day trial pass to Equinox exclusively for BJB residents this month. Sign-up to activate yours using this form! Continuing with the fitness fun, head to Crossfit Defined on Saturday, October 5th to learn about functional fitness during a free 1-hour class
