Bar Roma, located in Andersonville, will celebrate Halloween with a party and costume contest on October 31. At 8 p.m., dressed guests will show off their attire, 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 participants will receive a complimentary dessert.
Start the spooky night right with happy hour. From 5-6:30 p.m. in the tavern, all appetizers and meatballs will be half-price and select glasses of wine will be $6 (eight ounces).
