Creepy Halloween Date Nights to Spook Your Boo!
We lurv this time of year! Leaves (are sort of) changing color and that yummy crispness is in the air. And then there’s Halloween!
If you and your boo love Halloween mischief and all things spooky as much as we do, here are some fun and frightening date night ideas!
We all have heard of Halloween Horror Nights at Universal Studios, The Haunted Hayride and the Dark Harbor at the Queen Mary. But have you heard of the annual haunted experience Creep L.A. puts on? This year’s production ‘Haus of Creep’ is a riff on the grammable pop-up art shows that have been populating L.A. in the past couple of years. Think Museum of Ice Cream but with nightmarish, interactive art that leaps out at you (plus blood and gore versus cheery sprinkles and waffle cones). It’s an intimate affair with about 50 tickets sold per scare, and couples enter one at a time (together). And as mom always told you, don’t touch the art because it just might bite!
(Be-) heading downtown? Check out the Ace Hotel’s operatic mashup of Alfred Hitchcock’s Psycho in partnership with L.A. Opera. This classic scary mother-son relationship and non mommy-related horror film is accompanied by live music played performed by the LA Opera Orchestra. Tickets are available from October 25-31st. Might want to shower before you go. Just saying.
And head back to the Ace Hotel in costume on October 26 for their “Hitchcock Halloween” after-party in the theater’s grand lobby. They’ll have ghoulish music and serve wicked potions until the witching hours. Watch out for that weird guy with all the fingers because he gets rather pokey after midnight.
If ghosts and grisly tales are your jam, Echo Park’s Book of the Dead Tour will take you on a tour of its haunted homes and infamous crime scenes, including locations in Angeleno Heights, Silverlake, and Elysian Park.
And for a little Halloween romance, how about a date surrounded by candlelight? Even if it is inside hundreds of hand-carved jack-o’-lanterns. Calabasas’ Nights of the Jack: Halloween Jack O’Lantern Experience is a self-guided, half-mile trail filled with carved pumpkins both spooky and boo-tiful.
