It's Halloween weekend, and though the giant Halloween party in the Castro is a relic of the past, many bars throughout the Castro will be open for people looking for safe places to party.
Important note: Remember that the streets are not blocked off and there is no drinking permitted in public, so keep the booze in the bars and your feet on the sidewalks.

Also, as an added bonus to the Halloween fun, Berg Injury Lawyers wants to get you home safe through the "Safe and Sober Free Cab Ride Home" program, and will be paying for cab rides home for San Franciscans until 4am. So if Uber surge pricing has got you down tonight, call Luxor Cab at (415) 282-4141 and tell them Berg Injury Lawyers is picking up the tab (hailing a cab on the street won't work for the free ride). SF FunCheap has the details.


Canela Bistro and Wine Bar at 2272 Market Street is hosting a special dinner "Treats no Tricks" at 6:30pm. Celebrate your Halloween with a candy-inspired menu that will thrill your palate. Executive Chef Mat Schuster promises that all four courses are designed to be all treats and no tricks, and all guests dressed in costume will receive a special treat from the kitchen.

Go out to Churchill at Church and Market at 8pm for San Franphsyco & Mom DJs "Pick Your Poison Halloween Party." The upstairs office will be open offering a themed "nirvana" for the innocent and "infernal depths" hell house on the main level of the bar.

Head over to The Cafe for "Spooky Sugar All Hallows Eve" starting at 9pm and hosted by drag queen Mahlae Balenciaga. The event will come complete with creepy/sexy go-go boys and a cash money prize for the best Halloween costume. Get tickets here.


Mutha Chucka will be hosting "Drag of the Dead" at the Midnight Sun at 9pm. Come out and check out queens like Pristine Condition, Qween, and Florence Frightengale as they perform their "dead inside" numbers dressed in creepy Halloween drag.

Head to the Castro Theatre for the Scary Cow Film Festival from 2pm-8pm featuring scary shorts from local filmmakers looking to get funding for larger film projects. Audience members will choose the winning projects. Get tickets here.
