This year Halloween falls on a Wednesday, but that’s not stopping people from getting into the holiday spirit early. We’ve already spotted some costume-clad people around the neighborhood.
If you’re looking for Halloween events to check out this weekend, here are some suggestions.
Fresh Like Cadaver! A horror-themed live movie and comedy show in the spirit of Mystery Science Theater 3000, at the Cinecave “micro-theater” in the basement of Lost Weekend Video, 1034 Valencia St. Tickets are $10. The next show is tonight at 8 p.m. and features comedians O.J. Patterson and David Gborie. It’s followed by a live riffing of the movie “Warlock” by the comedy music duo Moore Devine. The bar will be serving up $2 Tecates and $3 glasses of wine all night long, with popcorn and candy.
- Horrible costumes and scary balls hit the Mission for a Halloween Dodgeball Spooktacular at the Mission Recreation Center, 2450 Harrison St. The lights will be dimmed and glow sticks and glow tape will be handed out. One clothing item has to be white or neon. Tickets are $7.
- Party with Supervisor David Campos at the Hallow-Queen event at Esta Noche, 3079 16th St., from 6 to 8 p.m. There will be a costume contest, a drag show, DJs and more!
- The Knockout (3223 Mission St.) presents SmithFits+ and a costume contest, starting at 9 p.m. For more information, click here.
If none of those events work for you, you can always treat yourself to watching the Giants play.
