Paranormal Pub Crawl

No, you are not possessed. And no, that is not ectoplasm that you just threw up. Although on the Paranormal Pub Crawl you might be spooked enough (and wasted enough) to think that those upchucked margaritas are ghost leavings. Turns out the Pike Place Market isn’t just for tourists buying aprons embroidered with cats. There are ghosts, too, and many, many creepy stories that Mercedes Yaeger will relate as you tour various haunted restaurants and bars. Did you know First Avenue was once nicknamed “Flesh Avenue”? (Not the Aurora Avenue kind of flesh—the other, dripping-blood kind of flesh.) Yaeger will tell you about the murders, lonely deaths, and damnation that have historically plagued the area; then she’ll lead you back to the Market Theater for a special midnight Halloween show from Unexpected Productions. After that, say hello to the ghouls at the Alibi Room with more drinks and dancing. Because the undead like to dance too. Meet at the gum wall by the Market Theater, 1428 Post Alley, 322-1218, www.seattleghost.com. $25. 9 p.m. ERINN UNGER

Fri., Oct. 31, 9 p.m., 2008
