Growing up isn't all it's cracked up to be. For one thing, you're probably too old to go trick-or-treating, but fear not because there are plenty of other thrilling ways to celebrate Halloween. Chicago businesses are getting in the spirit of the holiday by hosting haunted parties and offering food and drink specials. So while the luxury of free candy is gone, you'll get to enjoy spooky-themed cocktails and other fun scares instead.
With the Cubs also playing at home in the World Series this weekend, there's bound to be an electric atmosphere all over town. Put the finishing touches on that costume you've been working on for weeks or come up with a last minute idea (no Guy Fieri impersonators, please) and make some plans. Many places are awarding prizes for the best dressed, so give it your all and you might even be able to win a tenth of the money needed for a ticket to a Cubs game.
