Break out Your Best Costume for These DC Halloween Events

There is certainly a lot to be spooked by this Halloween season—and we’re not just talking about your typical ghouls and goblins. Between a high stakes presidential election and an ongoing global pandemic, getting into the holiday spirit on October 31 is certain to look and feel pretty different this year.

Social distancing is still of the utmost importance, and the DC Department of Health even released official guidance on how to have fun while staying mindful during Halloween and Día de los Muertos.

No need to fear, though—as plenty of socially distanced activities are still on for October 31 and beyond. From catching classic horror flicks outdoors to a mansion Halloween hunt right in the middle of the city, here are the best ways to spend the spookiest weekend of this year.

Celebrating National Pizza Month with the best of the DC Pizza spots.

Sure, DC may not have a style of pizza to call its own, perse, but that just means it gets the best of everywhere else. And isn’t that the most democratic way to enjoy pizza anyway? What that also means is pizza lovers can afford to be picky when it comes to their preferred pie.

Beloved NYC Bakery Levain Brings Cookie Empire to DC

This is no ordinary cookie. It weighs a whopping six ounces and is a splurge-worthy $4 treat that comes in several flavors, indulging chocolate chip walnut, dark chocolate peanut butter chip, and oatmeal raisin.

After establishing a New York empire, this week co-founders Pam Weekes and Connie McDonald added their eighth storefront in Washington DC’s Georgetown neighborhood -- a place known as a cupcake capital, made famous by Georgetown Cupcakes and Baked and Wired. That’s part of the reason why Levain opened up shop here -- its first location outside New York.

Besides one-off collaborations at the DC location, expect the full roster of Levain Bakery’s legendary cookies, plus pastries, loaf cakes, bread and rolls, and decadent sticky buns, as well as tea, coffee and espresso beverages.

Where to See the Most Beautiful Fall Foliage in the Mid-Atlantic
