Things get more thrilling as the nights lengthen and the air chills. Maybe it’s the veil between worlds thinning, but once fall hits, I crave a little magic, mystery, and several reasons to dress up in a costume. Usually, it’s hard to find a way to hit on all these desires at once—Dear reader, not this year. 

House of Spirits, an immersive cocktail party-slash-haunted house-slash-interactive mystery-slash-vaudeville show, comes to Seattle this fall. For over a month, the Rainier Chapter House on Capitol Hill transforms into Casa Vega, the haunted home of Francisco and Molly Vega (a story inspired by Spanish painter Francisco Goya and other Spanish folklore). 

Guests to Casa Vega can spend their time sipping spooky cocktails (the $79 ticket includes four drinks) and watching the various talent acts (magicians, tarot readers, maybe even a puppeteer). Or guests can solve the mystery of what exactly is haunting Casa Vega by chatting with some resident spirits and solving puzzles. It’s an engage-as-you-want kind of event. 

The only loose requirement for attendance is that you dress in costume. This can be something from the period (somewhere between the Victorian era and the 1920s), dressy cocktail wear, or a full-fledged Halloween costume.
