— Just because Halloween is in the middle of a work week doesn't mean you can't have a great time. Here are our picks for fun this Halloween. 

In downtown Raleigh, our friends at Carolina Nightlife Raleigh will be hosting a Halloween Howler Bar Crawl. The night starts at 9 p.m. at Murphy's Law. Wear a costume and hang out at a variety of different places – no cover or waiting in line! Tickets are $5 in advance and $10 the day of.
