Halloween is upon us and to celebrate the occasion, The Raw Deal will be playing corny, old, black and white B-grade monster movies on Oct. 25 between 5 p.m. and 9 p.m.
Located in downtown Menomonie, The Raw Deal has continually proven itself to be a vital part of the town’s culture, and this community event will only perpetuate their local standing.
“Basically, we want to sit around on cozy couches on a chilly October night, watch old movies and eat popcorn,” said Manager Amber Georgakopoulos. “We could do that in our apartments, but why not do it somewhere with an awesome draft list?”
It’s hard to think of a better place for such an event. The lovely, historic brick building boasts wonderfully high ceilings, spacious seating and a quaint loft area.
“The building itself has had some spooky sightings,” added Georgakopoulos, “so we’re aiming for a creepy-in-a-good-way vibe, with beer.”
Laughter is welcome, and screaming is more than encouraged (but don’t be annoying about it, come on guys). So stop by The Raw Deal on 603 South Broadway St. between 5 p.m. and 9 p.m. on Oct. 25 for popcorn, camaraderie, love, smiles, hugs, high fives and terror to reign in the holiday.
