It’s Halloween and since we are looking for a good time on the town we decided it was time for a special edition of Night on the Town; Halloween style.

Luckey’s will be the final destination on Halloween night, a place to let the rest of your Halloween spirits expose themselves. Photo courtesy of kval.com

Sure it’s a Wednesday and we all have to work tomorrow,  but when has that prevented a mid-week good time…the Bloody Mary exists for a reason.

Tonights soggy pre-show festivities will be found within the Barmuda Triangle, that special area of Eugene where things actually happen at night. Featuring more than five bars in just a small area of downtown, The Barmuda Triangle (BMT) will be lively tonight.  To select your flavor of pre-game festivity drop by EOTC (Eugene on the Cheap) and check out the options, then proceed to get your freak on.

Once the BMT has helped our collective insides match our re-decorated exteriors it’s off to Luckey’s, one of the live music clubs in the BMT for Eugene’s  Rare Monk…and plenty of affordable beverage options. Before Rare Monk takes the stage be sure to check out a $2 microwbrew or two, or so.  Note: after “so” comes “fah” which is the beginning of a word you may utter if you don’t arrange for a designated driver or cab if you venture beyond the “so” line.  We like Oregon Taxi (that’s a freebie OT –ed).

If you haven’t checked the micro-profile we linked to Rare Monk, here’s a rundown: think The Shins meets Modest Mouse with some original thought mixed in; deep and expansive melodies like The Shins, then abrupt and masculine like Modest Mouse.  Put your costume to use and consider an extensive photobombing campaign – be sure to post your Halloween pix on our FB page.

So, ignore the rain, get up, get out, oh and pre-mix your Bloody Mary before you head out.  You’ll thank us in the morning.
