A Nightmare on Water Street
@ The Black Sheep
Spend Halloween Eve at a scary reading & scary costume contest. All the reading slots have been filled, but it’s more fun to be a reading spectator than a reader anyway. Winners will be chosen by audience ballot. Costumes will be judged by host and horror expert Mike Hickey of Fright Hype. Bonus points if you come dressed as a spooky literary character. Reading prizes are really great, and the best costume winner gets a 2019 Sci-Fi on the Rock weekend pass.

Men of Misfortune
Thursday Through Sunday
8PM (with 2pm matinee on Sunday)
An original thriller with dark comic elements, Men of Misfortune stars Andy Jones and Greg malone. The play “chronicles the uncomfortable and unexpected reunion of two elderly brothers inside their childhood home on Craigmillar Avenue in St. John’s. A home (like the brothers themselves) that seems permanently stuck in time. As certain truths and transgressions emerge from the shadows, and territorial lines are drawn, Henry and Lester MacPherson soon realize that one of them may not be getting out of the house alive. And that’s just goddamn fine with them.”
Open Saison Pig Roast With QV Brewery & Mallard Cottage
@ Mallard Cottage
Quidi Vidi will be launching their new saison series at Mallard — a rhubard saison, raspberry saison, crab apple saison, and blueberry saison. That’s plenty of delicious, locally inspired saison beers to wash down a good old fashioned pig roast with. The spit roasted pig will be served with a buffet of side dishes, live music, and a tasting flight of all the saisons, for $65. These beers were brewed in very limited quantities, and you’d be the first to try 3 of the 4 new beers (the Rhubarb saison is currently in NLCs).
