Halloween weekend is coming up soon and promises to be better than ever. This year, we’ve all decided not to leave the hotel to get our fill of tricks, and creeps, and hauntings. Our own David Flower, chief imaginer at David Flower Productions and one of the producers of Dead Silence, to put his event-making magic to work at Brass Key. What he’s come up with will not disappoint. If you like your Halloween full of chills and thrills, search no more, book the room, and be sure to stay through Tuesday, October 31. On that night, the Brass Key will be no more, overtaken by the Haunted Hotel, a once-esteemed establishment that became the scene of deviant acts and unspeakable terror. What evil horrors await you in this forsaken place? I’m not saying any more and you’re just going to have to come and experience it for yourself!
Shipwreck Lounge will be hopping, serving a forgotten cocktail from a bygone age. Please make sure to leave the kids at home. This adult-only attraction contains graphic violence, and sexual content. You must be 21 or older to attend (strictly enforced).
Oh, and I was just kidding about the never having to leave the hotel. There’s just too much going on Halloween weekend to stay in one place! The 3rd Annual Provincetown Halloween Gala! Parades! Tea dances! Costume balls at the Crown & Anchor! Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein at Provincetown Theater! Yup, looks like we’ve got a full dance card. Bring in on!
Yes, it’s officially fall now. The solstice came and went. Apparently no one told the tourists though, because visitors have still been pouring into town in droves. But not in bad way. It is much quieter. And let’s not talk about our crazy weather. It went from 80s and humid to 60s and, well, not in 24 hours. Makes clothing decisions challenging. I’m thankful for the switch to cooler climes. Makes sleeping with the windows open a delightful treat – as long as you’ve got someone to snuggle with!
As summer slips away, we grab at whatever we can to hold on. Plenty still to do before the “hunkering down” starts, right! Here’s what I’m doing the next couple months before I’m cooped up and too bored, wet, and cold to even go outside for coffee.
ONE LAST BOAT RIDE
Be it a whale watch, a schooner, a yacht, a charter fishing boat—I don’t care. Just get me out on the water one more time! I love it when it’s cool and we have to bundle up with sweaters and blankets on deck…again, great snuggling opportunities here, people!
ONE LAST ICE CREAM
I could eat ice cream all year long, I don’t care if it’s too cold for it to actually melt. But Columbus Day is closing time for a lot of the seasonal ice cream shops in town and let’s face it, they are way more fun than a pint of Ben & Jerry’s from Stop & Shop. Gotta get me one last scoop!
ONE LAST SWIM
This time of year, every dip in the ocean starts to feel more and more like a polar bear plunge. It’s invigorating, that’s for sure! Gotta get a full taste of that salty water, in my hair, on my lips, and on my skin cause the memory has to hold me over all winter.
ONE LAST SUNSET?
NO, no need to worry about the sunsets—they are just as glorious in winter as they are in summer! But let’s face it, we can never get enough of them!
