Halloween Magical Happenings Around Chicago

I wanted to let you know about a couple of Halloween magic shows that are happening this week by two very good friends of ours.

First up Eugene Burger making an appearance at Magic Chicago on October 30 and 31 in Fear and Fate: A Special Halloween Celebration with Eugene Burger. Eugene promises it will be scary, and I said that’s fine as long as people don’t jump out and yell at me. He promised me there would be no yelling. (Haunted Houses take note: people jumping out at you and yelling isn’t scary; it’s just annoying, especially after 30 minutes of it.) Tickets are $25.

Next up is David Parr. David will be at The Dawes House in Evanston Thursday, Friday, and Saturday doing three shows a night in Haunting History. The magic takes place throughout the house with vignettes being performed in each room. Again should be scary with nothing jumping out and yelling at you. Tickets are $20.

Tracy and I will be at Eugene’s performance on Friday night and at David’s on Saturday. Come join us for some magical, scary Halloween fun.

Witches, Skeltons, and Witch Doctors, Oh My!

Our building had it’s Halloween party this last Saturday. Here are some of the pics:

It’s the Voodoo Witch Doctor and his Mrs. Witch.

For some odd reason we attracted a skeleton.

Then the skeleton ran into a street walker.

The Hippie is here! Now we can get the party started!

Because it’s not Halloween without The Great Pumpkin.

My familiar, Victoria aka The Diva

What is a witch without her Familiar?

Some (wickedly) enchanted evening, you may see a stranger

Oh my! Who is that sexy Voodoo Witch Man? I might just follow him home… (Actually he followed me because he’s a Gentleman Voodoo Witch Man.)

Halloweens Past: Last year we were Mr. Evil Clown, and Mrs. Sexy Harlequin. And I don’t seem to have pictures on the site of the year we went as Mr. and Mrs. Beelzebulb. I might have to remedy that:
