Bar Roma, located in Andersonville, will welcome Halloween revelers for a festive celebration on Saturday, October 30. A costume contest will take place at 8 p.m., with dressed guests competing for three top prizes. The person (or duo) with the best duds will win dinner for two ($100 gift card); the second top costume will win a $50 gift card; and the third place winner will receive a bottle of Italian wine. All dining guests that arrive in costume throughout the evening will receive a complimentary dessert.
Start the spooky night right with happy hour. From 4:30-6 p.m., Bar Roma offers $7 glasses of house wine and $7 select small plates in the tavern area and on the patio. In addition to the regular dinner menu, Chef Fred Ramos will feature an array of Halloween specials from 5-11 p.m., including caramelized onion soup, roasted squash salad, baked oxtail lasagna, skate wing with roasted root vegetables, and pumpkin pie (outlined below).
