Halloween is a season for lovers - what better excuse to hold on tight than a little spirited fun? So we've created a spooktacular date night for you in the hauntingly hip Mile High.
Mary & Lydia: Begin your evening with a bloody Mary cocktail at historic Blake Street Vault, one of LoDo's oldest structures built for one of Denver's first saloons. Keep an eye out for resident spirit Lydia (also known as "brown ghost" and "lady in red"), a former saloon girl who still maintains a strong presence here.
1526 Blake St.; 303-825-9833
Ghost Plate & Tap: Do we even have to say it? We're sending you to this aptly named eatery for the ghost burger ($10.95), a charbroiled patty with a smoked cheddar cheese tortilla swimming in green chili. Thirsty? The tasty ghost cocktail ($7) is created with Wild Tea vodka, lime juice, muddled mint, simple and soda water.
800 18th St., Suite 100; 303-297-1738
Smooth Ride: For a devilishly fun - and safe - ride to your next destination, secure a reservation for a Haunted House Limo tour, which will get you to and from local haunted houses complete with a complimentary wet bar (for 21+ only). Call for pricing on specialty packages.
Asylum: A little insanity spices up a date, so we're suggesting Asylum as your first haunted stop. If you’re up for multiple thrills, you can create a combo of five Denver-area hell houses for a single discounted ticket price.
Through the end of October; $20/general admission, $25/VIP, $49.95/pick-5-combo
Asylum, 6100 E. 39th Ave.; 303-453-0359
Oxford Hotel: If you're not yet spooked to the bone, check in for the night at Oxford, Denver’s oldest historic - and haunted - hotel. Tip: Request room 320, which has a rep for the most supernatural occurrences.
