Attention New Yorkers!
On October 27, for the first time ever, The Takeaway's Movie Date podcast is hosting a very special (and spooky) night of bar trivia. In honor of Halloween, questions will focus on scary movies, skin-crawling history, and some top-secret subjects that we won't divulge here. Rafer and Kristen will be there, reading off clues, offering moral support, and handing out prizes. We're expecting it to be very full, so if you want prime space come early!

Pacific Standard Bar
82 4th Avenue
Park Slope, Brooklyn
Trains: 2/3/4/5/B/D/N/R/Q at Atlantic/Barclays
