Tricks or Treats: A list of Something Good to do This Halloween

October 6, 2012

A chill is finally in the air, well at least for a couple of days.  With the chill of fall comes the thrill of Halloween for many.  You may be asking yourself, what should I do? 

Well, if you hadn’t heard, TJSL is throwing a major bash on October 26 at one of San Diego’s newest and hottest places, the Pussycat Doll’s Playhouse Nightclub.  According to SBA sources, students get exclusive access to a VIP area that includes a private entrance.  Everything starts at 9pm, and non-TJSL students are welcome.  Talk to your section reps for tickets, which are priced at $25 and include two drink tickets, but get them before they sell out.

If you love fall and Halloween, and one fun night just isn’t enough, the city offers other experiences too.  Haunted San Diego offers year round tours Wednesday through Sunday.  You’ll be driven from scary site to scary site.  If you enjoy story telling by guides who are completely decked out, this may be your thing. Some of the sites include the Horton Grand Hotel, Old Town’s oldest cemetery, and one of the most haunted houses in America according to the Travel Channel, Whaley House. Check for details.

If you’d rather skip the tour and go right for the goods, you can go directly to Whaley House for an extended tour.  Events include ghost tours, ghost hunting and the house is open until midnight several nights in October.  Check for more details.

For all the moms and dads, aunts and uncles, or people with friends who have kids, it can be tough to find Halloween events for everyone.  But Balboa Park Halloween Family Day could be the answer.  On Oct. 29 not only will the park host a Family Day, but many of the museums located there will open their doors to children under 12 for free.  Balboa Park is home to so many amazing attractions, it’s hard to list only a few.  However, here are some offering the free-under-12 tickets (some stipulations may apply): The San Diego Zoo, Hall of Champions, Mingle International Museum, and many more.  Visit for a complete list.

And finally, for anyone who can’t live without being scared to death . . .

Check out The Haunted Hotel or The Scream Zone

Whatever you decide to do this Halloween have a ghoulishly good time, and don’t forget to stay safe out there.
