If you still haven’t decided what you’re doing for Halloween, here’s a few ways you can celebrate Capitol Hill’s Official Holiday with the rest of your neighbors: visit the trick-or-treat hot spots, enter a costume contest, or check out the carved pumpkins at the Conservatory Open House. If you don’t have a costume, be a zombie extra in a music video – makeup provided. Thursday is also one of the few days you can shuffle to the closest bar in your slippers, bathrobe, wifebeater and whitey tighties, call it your costume, and get served.

Weekend highlights:

artacheShow your support at The Comet Employees Benefit Concert at Chop Suey on Friday. Music performances by Hounds of the Wild Hunt, Daemon Lovers, Black Nite Crash, and more. Read more about what may or may not be happening with The Comet space and name.

To market, market, market: the Nuthole Flea Market on Saturday, and on Sunday the Broadway Farmers Market (11 am – 3 pm)  and ArtAche Market (1 pm – 6 pm).

doyleNbenShort Stories Live is a regular feature at Town Hall, and Sunday’s readings by professional actors are just right for the season: two horror stories and a mystery, all written by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle. Benedict Cumberbatch is not expected, but a popular Seattle-based professional actor is. Doors at 1 pm, readings starts at 2 pm. Come, Watson, come!

Also on Sunday, Seattle Playwrights Collective’s performs a staged reading of Another Shore, a new play inspired by Shakespeare’s The Tempest. The Collective’s First Look Reading Series is held at Elliott Bay Book Company and starts at 6 pm.
