Happy Halloween From Al-boo-querque The Magazine!

Frida Kahlo was strutting around the ATM offices today. There were also severed, bloody fingers resting on what we like to call the “table of temptation.”

Don’t freak out. It wasn’t real. One was a costume—a very good handmade one at that (seriously, check it out on our Instagram)—and the other were cookies. Tomorrow’s Halloween. Hurry up and get your costume if you don’t have one, and stock up on candy if you don’t have any. Don’t be that lame person that has to tell the kids there’s no candy here.

If you don’t have plans yet, here are some ideas.

If you’re looking for a head start on Halloween, the Guild Cinema will screen Tales of Halloween, presented by Alibi’s Midnight Madness, tonight at 10:30 p.m. It’s the story of an American suburb on All Hallow’s Eve. Ten unique stories—involving ghouls, imps, axe murderers, and ordinary residents—will weave together.

The film was a collaboration between 11 directors known for their work in the horror genre, so it might not be for the faint of heart. If you don’t have the guts to sit through it tonight, it will screen tomorrow night, same time, same place.

You love Halloween so much you even bought the dog a costume, didn’t you? And it’s so cute you just have to show everyone, don’t you? In that case, you should probably check out BOOfy’s Halloween Bash.

Tomorrow, from 11 a.m.–2 p.m., take your costumed pet to Boofy’s Best for Pets. Wear your costume, too, since there will be contests for dogs of all sizes and breeds, and for humans, too. Not to mention, the Oscar Mayer Weinermobile is scheduled to drop by.

All ages are welcome and admission is free, though there is a $5 fee to enter the costume contests, which start at noon, and a $10 donation is suggested for Halloween pet photos. The money aid’s F.A.T. Katz and Paws to People.

Tomorrow, from 11 a.m.–4 p.m., the ABQ BioPark Zoo will host Zoo Boo, which is perfect if you’re looking for something family friendly. The event is included with regular zoo admission.

There will be a scream contest, costume contests for groups and individuals of all ages, games, Haunted Habitats, plus, businesses and organizations will have trick-or-treat booths set up throughout the zoo. Plus all of the animal exhibits will be open to the public.

It might be tough to find a parking spot, so check out these options before making you and your family head out to the ABQ BioPark Zoo.
