Looking for some fun this Halloween weekend? Head over to the bar this Saturday October 27 for dress ups, cocktails, food and prize draws. The party starts at 4 when the bar doors open and will be running all night until the witching hour (which in Newtown is midnight). Those who come in a costume and who purchase a drink or food item will be placed into draws for food and beverage vouchers as well as T shirts from the Midnight Special and Lulu’s. Prize draws will happen throughout the night, at seven, nine and eleven PM, and the bar will be setting up a spooky backdrop for all your Instagram needs.

We’ll be creating some spooky cocktail specials for the night, including the Vampire’s Kiss: lemon myrtle gin, Crème de Cassis, vanilla rose syrup and Young Henry’s Natural Lager ($12), the Frankenstein Fizz: Apple Jack, jasmine and hibiscus syrup with dry vermouth and lemon ($12), and the Freddy’s Dream: Hennessy VS, Creme de Cacao, spiced pumpkin, coconut and almond foam ($15).

All through the week leading up to the party, Lulu’s will be serving a special “Scared Shnitless” sandwich: a panko fried free range pork cutlet with bloody red romesco sauce and Vannella feta cheese spread on a black as night charcoal bun ($17).
