    Welcome to our latest edition of Fox Valley Magazine’s

    4 FOR THE WEEKEND

    where we’re perfectly safe a…

    So let’s get to it, starting with…..


    It’s Halloween, Y’all!

    Like we said last week, we love the Halloween season.

    Now at this point, you’re probably thinking that we’re going to give you alternatives to the Halloween scene in the Fox Valley.

    You would be wrong.

    We’re going all Halloween, all the time in this episode of 4FTW. So get with the program, beginning with….

    Murder, Food and Cosplay, All At Once

    Midnight at the Masquerade.

    What a great concept.

    A three-course dinner while trying to solve the mystery of a murder at the “Billionaires Club Annual Masquerade Ball,” the night before Halloween. Awesome.

    We can’t think of a better way to spend the holiday.

    The Headless Horseman….

    We’ll admit, when we were kids, the Headless Horseman was one of the regular Halloween stories that scared the bejebus out of us.

    There’s just something about a dude riding through the dark countryside without a head that freaks us out. (Wonder why?)

    Now, we seriously doubt the part about holding a pumpkin in the place of the head, but sometimes you’ve just got to let art flow over you without examining certain questions.

    Regardless, for those of you with kids, Abbey Farms is a wonderland. This is a can’t miss.

    And Finally…A Smorgasbord of Scare

    Seriously, the Fox Valley has some of the best (or worst, depending on your level of dementia) haunted houses in the state.

    Pretty much all the genres are represented – prison riot, haunted forests, insane asylum breakout, the works.

    So we put them all in one place for your masochistic convenience.

    We’ll just stick with the big blow-up Snoopy in the yard…

    Your weekly weekend weather looks exactly like it should for Halloween. Friday it’ll be a bit wet, with showers turning to cloudy or partly skies for the rest of the weekend. Highs in the mid-50s and lows in the low-40s. As ever, plan accordingly.

    If, for whatever reason, none of our fabulous four events doesn’t pop your cork, we’ll be very insulted. However, all hope is not lost. Simply go to www.foxvalleymagazine.com and check out our A+E and Events sections for other ideas.

    Finally, please do us a favor. We would be eternally grateful if you could share this with some of your unsuspecting family, friends and neighbors. We’d also appreciate some love on our Facebook page (see below). Ok, technically it’s a “LIKE,” but don’t be pedantic. Also, that’s actually two favors. We’ll owe you.

    Thanks for reading. Until next time…OH!  One more thing.  If you’re reading this via the website and would like to have this emailed to you bright and early every Friday morning, please SUBSCRIBE!
