Dance of the Dead @ The Pine Box

Tulle and taffeta and BLOOD 🩸

📸: Pine Box

Saturday, October 29th  • Til 2 am

The Pine Box is known for a few things: beer, ghosts, and one heckuva Halloween ball. Last year, the “Dance of the Dead” was seance-themed. This year, Pine Box is mixing it up, tapping into nostalgia, and throwing a Halloween prom. Specifically, a Carrie-themed prom. Come dressed in your high school best, and don’t be shy to add a healthy serving of blood to all that prom dress tulle and taffeta. (Though I’m sure everyone would appreciate your commitment to accuracy, please don’t use real lamb’s blood).  

The dance goes on all night (well, all night for Seattle, so, 2 am), and so do the drink specials. The Pine Box’s DJ will start their set at 8 pm and keep the (probably not high school prom-appropriate) tunes bumping. There will be a free “bloody high school dance-inspired photo booth” and a costume contest. Best costume will win a cash prize and the honor of being the hallowed prom king and queen. So go live out your perturbed high school fantasies for one night only inside a 1920s mortuary-turned-beer hall!!!! Slow dance with a ghost! Make out with the quarterback who sort of looks like a zombie! It’ll be just like high school.
