The Dark Market
$5 | 9 p.m.
Similar to the night market in “What We Do In The Shadows,” this Dark Market is for all you creepy ghouls and ghosts out there. There will be music provided by a surprise “Dark Music Specialist,” vendors from The Dark Market, food by Tacos La Chaparrita, and drinks by Lany StarDust. The Facebook description says it best: “Come out and help keep the dancefloor barely alive as we celebrate the glum drudgery of our dreadful existence.”
