Growing up, we were tricked. We were told that Halloween and trick-or-treating ends as you grow up. Well, here in Charleston we know differently. The trick-or-treating goods just change. The treats obviously turn into drinks, and the trick sadly turns into a hangover. Here’s a round-up of some of the Halloween festivities happening around town.

Over in Mt. P, you’ve got the Cirque du Shelter and a party at Red’s. We’re pretty sure you’ll be able to find other things going down on Shem Creek too.

Both Home Team locations have a naughty nurse themed party. The one on Sullivan‘s has a $5 cover, but it’s free in West Ash.

Out on Folly, Tides hotel and Blu hosts a Rocky Horror Picture Show-themed party.

The restaurants in Avondale have teamed up for Crawl with the Creeps. Top prize is a $500 gift card.

Now for the downtown mayhem. Pretty much anywhere you’ll go will have people dressed up.

The Cocktail Club wants you in your best 1950s attire. Rat Pack it up, but don’t expect to keep your fedora through the night. 

Republic Reign understands the jubilation that comes with Halloween and is having a three-day party. Start the trifecta at the Yelloween event tonight.

The Warehouse wants you to celebrate with them and their drink and food specials. First place in the costume contest gets a Hendrick’s Gin grab bag, that’s a definite treat.

Heading down Upper King? Hit up the Recovery Room’s Halloween night party. Or head to Tivoli‘s for live music and DJs. Plus they’ll have plenty of witches’ brew.

And of course there’s the Taco Boy party. Margaritas are a ghoul’s best friend.

Hanging out on the other side of Calhoun? Drink specials and a party named the Monster Bash takeover Mynt. New drinking game, every time you hear the Monster Mash drink up.

Down on the Market, win the best group costume title at Mad River. Move over Elm Street, Mac’s Place hosts Nightmare on East Bay Street.
