“Tiki. Tacos. Terror.”

Trust my favorite bar The Passenger to come up with a terrifyingly terrific way to spend the night before All Hallow’s Eve. Saturday, October 30 from 7pm to close, the bar will toy with the occult by serving up the infamous El Zombie cocktail, a concoction so potent it’s rumoured to turn the living into the undead!

Regular Zombie cocktails are deadly enough – with their origins in the 1930’s Tiki craze, the deceptive fruit content of these rum-based drinks mask the alcohol, resulting in the inbiber’s doooooooooom. From a haunted laboratory within the bar, test your fortitude against the El Zombie’s “evil combination of Mezcal, overproof rum, and infierno” resurrected from a secret recipe. Shudder.

As if that isn’t spooky enough, the front bar will have El Bastardo Sufriente, Mezcalaritas and Flaming Escorpión Bowls to kick back while you rattle your bones to a Mariachi band. The lucky costume contest winner will get their bar tab gratis. A whole pig will be torturously roasted for a delicious taco sacrifice, and the $10 entrance fee at the door is well worth it. The party tagline is “Tiki. Tacos. Terror.” Love it. Time to figure out my costume…
