Duke Mansion is hosting a Halloween Mystery Machine Party at 7 p.m. Oct. 26. It's the second year the historic site has turned into a haunted mansion. Based on last year's event, I highly recommend this party for adults who love to celebrate the holiday and want to have a spooky but upscale night out. (The photo above is a group who attend last year's party dressed as gangsters).
Tickets are $75 per person ($25 is tax-deductible) and includes gourmet food, brews and music by the Bad Daddies. The money raised goes to preserve the mansion.
A silent auction will include trips and jewelry. You can check out all the items in advance at www.biddingforgood.com/DukeMansion.
Organizers say to come in a scary costume or shag-adelic threads.
If you've been thinking about doing something special for some of your friends, it's a great way to have a supernaturally good Halloween party without all the work. You could either pay for your friends to go, or just organize a group and everyone pays their own way.
