Restaurant Eve celebrates Hallow's Eve with a bang, spreading the haunt to sister restaurants in Old Town. After all, it's historic Old Town for a reason... and on one night of the year the ghosts come out to play.
The round-up this year goes a little something like this:
Virtue Feed & Grain is bringing out the haunt in historic Wales Alley. The over two- hundred year-old alley will host the Halloween Bash, a night of frightening revelry with live DJ and cauldron brewing mixologist Todd Thrasher’s signature potion. $10 entry includes a Cauldron Cocktail and sweet treats—proceeds will go to Chefs as Parents, an organization dedicated to improving the culture and nutrition of Alexandria public school children. A trick or treating station for the little ones will be setup from 5-7pm—but you might want to hide the kids afterwards, once the darkness creeps on and the fun begins. Specials for the occasion include Red Velvet Spider Cakes, Bloody Pirate Jelly Donuts, Pumpkin Torte, and a Pumpkin Spice Soup with Bat Wing Croutons.
And over on King Street, The Majestic is dropping the "casual" and going all "swank".... gangsters and flappers style. While PX may be the ‘speakeasy’ of the group, the Majestic is stealing the thunder, prohibition style. In honor of the roaring 20’s, The Majestic will be offering classic prohibition cocktails, including the Mary Pickford, Classic Martini, and French 75. Chef Shannon Overmiller will be stirring up desserts with her Spooky Cookies, Chocolate Bloody Bundt Cake—a double chocolate cake with black cherry port wine sauce—and a Pumpkin Crème Brûlée with ginger snaps.
Come in to get your Gatsby on!
For Hallow’s Eve, Restaurant Eve is treating without the tricking. Along with cat shaped shortbread to go with post dinner coffee or tea and sinful dessert options on the menu, diners of the tasting room will be given a take home Pick Your Poison box of petit fours, to do as they will with. We recommend eating them before someone else does!
