DMK Burger Bar
(2954 N. Sheffield Ave.) is serving "The Bloody Burger" from now until the end of the month. $12 gets you a steak tartare and a fried egg topped with garlic aioli, salt and vinegar chips and garlic bread.

Visit Ada Street (1664 N. Ada St.) on Wednesday to watch Halloween, the original 1978 film. Arrive in costume and get half off on cocktails! The best costume wins a $100 gift card. Movie starts at 10pm.

Prasino's Wicker Park location (1846 W. Division St.) is hosting at Trick-or-Treat Family Dinner at 6pm. Prasino is preparing a special cocktail, El Vuerto Viviente (the living dead), for adults, and serving nonalcoholic cocktails for children in goblets. The best thing: kids get to paint pumpkins. For reservations call 312-878-1212.
