Super Spooky Date Night/s in and around Pasadena
It’s the perfect season to snuggle up with your sweetie as the ghouls, goblins and things that bump in the night abound. Pasadena has plenty of snuggle opps with some truly terrifying date night to-dos.
Walk Moonlit Ghostly Grounds (while being totally scared)
Desirous of some “Drama After Dark”? Head to the Huntington Gardens (10/27) for their Edgar Allan Poe and Edward Gorey readings, performed out and about on the garden’s grounds by professional thespians. Click here for info.
Play’s the Thing
More drama you say, but with a spectral twist? Get your ghost story on with “The Woman in Black” at the Pasadena Playhouse. “Witness Susan Hill’s acclaimed ghost story that has kept London’s West End on the edge of its seat for the past 28 years!”
But wait, there’s more. After you’re all spooked out by the staged ghost story, listen to more strange tales with a post-show, live recording of Hollyweird: Paranomal. Sip wine and “learn about Playhouse hauntings and ghost lore.” (Psyched and) Scared already! (See their Halloween ticket packages.)
For all you Sci-Fi fans, geeks and feminists
The Pasadena Museum of History is hosting Angels and Amazons & The First Women of Science Fiction (10/30). Honoring women science fictioneers who built on the trails laid by Margaret Cavendish (The Blazing World) and Mary Shelley (Frankenstein),” the evening’s presentation will pay homage to the significant contributions of women’s science fiction.
