Pumpkins and parties for a freaky Friday

The weekend’s almost here, which can only mean one thing: party! And here’s a bonus. It’s Halloween tomorrow, which means an extra-special (and hopefully spooky) Friday night out.

Mega CC, a bar in the Lotte Hotel in Jamsil, southern Seoul, is hosting a 2008 Halloween Party. If you’re in the mood for cold draft beer, events and live music, this is an interesting event to check out.

“Friend, a six-member rock band, will perform oldies and the latest hits. On top of everything else we had last year, we’re also going to hold a costume contest,” said Song Ji-young of Lotte Hotels and Resorts’ PR department.

The event costs 11,000 won ($7.25), which includes a free flow of house beer. There will also be a darts contest and a beer chugging competition to keep the party upbeat.

“We’re holding a lucky draw and prizes include hotel and buffet vouchers,” added Song.

The Sheraton Grande Walkerhill Hotel is hosting a Halloween party of its own on Nov. 1 called “Hello Hoegaarden, It’s Halloween!”

Organizers are promising a night of great music and performances from groups Above and Beyond and Stress.

The Hoegaarden Ritual Zone will give partygoers the chance to chase away bad luck by downing a beer from a pumpkin-shaped mug followed by ringing a bell.

The Sheraton Grande Walkerhill Hotel is located in Gwangjin District, eastern Seoul. For more information, call (02) 455-5000 or visit www.sheratonwalkerhill.com.

If you’re looking for a more family-oriented Halloween event, Everland amusement park has just the thing.

Organizers claim that their Halloween Candle Party is always a big hit with the kids. The Rose Garden will be lit with thousands of candles and chandeliers. Nocturnal animals will star in a Spooky Zoo. There will also be a range of other activities.

Everland is located in Yongin, Gyeonggi. For more information, call (031) 320-5000 or visit www.everland.com.
