Even though the fall weather just landed in Seattle, October is almost over! Halloween is right around the corner, and I don’t know about you, but I haven’t even bought a pumpkin, let alone carved one. The good news is that the Pine Box, a Capitol Hill beer hall, has the solution for procrastinators and seasonal revelers alike: a pumpkin carving scary movie watch party.
ICYMI: The Pine Box used to be a funeral home. (I asked a ghost hunter about it here.) The place is deeply creepy in a cool way and likely very haunted. When you order a beer at the bar, you’re leaning your elbows on the old mortuary’s basement cabinets. Then, when you sit back at your table to sip and carve your pumpkins, you’re likely also sitting on top of what used to be the mortuary’s church pews.
For Tuesday’s event, the bar will supply the pumpkins for $5 with any food or drink purchase. They’ll also provide any carving tools you’ll need and some scary movie thrills while you work. (The Pine Box hasn’t yet announced which scary movie they’ll be showing during the pumpkin carving event). It will take place in the bar’s tented beer hall.
