We already demonstrated this weekend that Baltimore goes all out for Halloween. Now that the costume’s broken in, it’s time to give it one last spin for All Hallows’ Eve. Fright night is officially here. Though it falls in the middle of the week this year, there are plenty of Halloween treats in store for those who dare to venture out.

Event Pick: Celebrate 30 years of ‘Beetlejuice’ (Beetlejuice, Beetlejuice) at the Parkway

A little more than a week out from Halloween, we’re well into spooky movie season, and it just so happens that this year marks the 30th anniversary of an all-time great movie about the worlds of the living and the dead, “Beetlejuice.” To be clear, the Tim Burton-directed film isn’t scary in the slash-’em-up, crazy-creature sense; rather, it takes creative liberties with the ideas of life, the afterlife and ghosts.

Event Pick: Make your pick for governor with the help of a rap battle

Being a good voter is being an informed voter, but sometimes plowing through campaign flyers, newspaper questionnaires and policy pages on candidate websites can be a bit, well, draining. Here, you will get to absorb the policies of Gov. Larry Hogan and former NAACP executive Ben Jealous in nearly two-minute battle rap verses ahead of the Nov. 6 election.

Not from the candidates themselves, mind you, but from local MCs Ray Cobaine and J. Law.

Fall cleaning season is here with the autumnal shift, and while you’re cleaning house you may notice some items or areas that need a bit of TLC. Fortunately, you’re in an industrious city with knowledgeable folks who can teach you how to do a lot of that work on your own.
