Halloween for Grownups: Pop-Up Bars, Spooky Soirées and More Philly Haunts
You’re never too old for Halloween. Dressing up? Check. Eating candy? Absolutely. Watching Hocus Pocus for the 25th time? No problems there. But if you’re a grownup who wants some extra Halloween festiveness, you’ve got options beyond tagging along with your kids (or your friend’s kids who you’ve suddenly befriended in hopes of fun-size Snickers leftovers) for trick-or-treating. In fact, there are more options than ever, with brand-new pop-up bars, haunted houses, spooky soirées and so much more.
