Looking for a way to spend your weekend? Here’s a list of things CoMo Collective writers are doing with their days off…
Thursday, October 27th:
- Drive by Truckers at the Missouri Theater, walk up tickets are just $10
- Head to the District for Halloweenie, the not so spooky trick or treating event for teenies. Over 50 stores and restaurants will be handing out treats from 4 – 6 p.m. New this year is The Great Mini Pumpkin Hunt. Stop by a participating business and pick up a “treatsure” map directing you to the “Live United” pumpkins for a chance to win great prizes. The start location is up to you, but the end location is Orr Street Studios at 6:00pm. Bring your full game pieces to Orr Street Studios in the North Village Arts District for fun and prizes.
- Even if you are without any trick or treaters, head to The District to check out the Fall Harvest Festival at The Root Cellar (1023 E. Walnut) for free local food, tasty beverages, crafts, and pumpkin carving from 4-8pm.
- You can ride your bike in costume anytime but only once a year do you have company on the Katy Trail. Join Off Track Events Monster Bash. Race starts at 9am and includes various fun stops. Check out the site for more info.
- Ragtag is screening The Big Lebowski all weekend but only tonight’s screening features a CCR band. Band plays at 6:30, film starts at 7:00pm. No word on if White Russians will be on special at the Uprise Bar.
- Marine Outreach Dinner: This annual dinner showcases the MarineParents Purple Heart Family Support initiative. The featured speaker will be Marine Gunnery Sergeant Nick Popaditch. Come hear how Marine Corps mentality of “improvise, adapt and overcome” enabled this Silver Star recipient to prosper despite the handicaps resultant of brutal head injuries. He will also be signing copies of his book, Once A Marine. Donations accepted at the door, cash bar.
- Bring the whole family to the Energy Expo at the Boone County Fairgrounds from 11am-3pm. And then I want you to relish the fact that this is a free event with free food and door prizes, kiddo activities and DIY seminars, as you mill around and learn a thing or two about energy efficiency.
- Take a break from the candy fest and attend Kent’s on Broadway’s annual Holiday open house from 12-5.
