Raleigh bars to be invaded by the undead

Posted October 2, 2012

Now that October is here, it's time to start thinking about all things spooky and creepy for Halloween. To kick it off, there will be a Zombie Bar Raid this Saturday, Oct. 6, from 3 p.m. to 2 a.m. in downtown Raleigh.

If you need help coming up with a killer costume, stylists from Head 2 Toe Boutique will be at Tir na nOg from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. For "basic" zombie makeup they charge $25, but $50 gets you prosthetic add-ons as well. Come dressed in your zombie best!

Participating bars – Tir na nOg, The Pour House, Rum Runners and The London Bridge Pub – will have drink specials and live entertainment. 

While this bar raid is a fun and unique event, it also is a fundraiser for 6-year-old Cuyler Buchanan, who is fighting a form of childhood cancer. Part of the proceeds will go to Cuyler and his family to help pay for medical bills. Tir na nOg is hosting a concert for Cuyler that night as well.

Tickets for the Zombie Bar Raid are $30.
