What's On: October 28-November 3

From gastronomic adventures to unmissable events, we’ve got your social life sorted for the next seven days.

Spooktacular Halloween Party
Parami Pizza, 56 Sayar San Road, Bahan township
October 31, 3-7pm

Enjoy the treats without the tricks this Halloween at Parami Pizza. While the kids play pumpkin skittles, pin the boo on the ghost and bob for apples, parents get free Halloween punch and canapés 6-7pm. Plus, there’s free ice cream for anyone in fancy dress (“I scream, you scream”, we guess is the thinking here) – and if free ice cream’s not worth scaring up a good costume for, we don’t know what is. Plus it’s either that or the “sexy monster” party. We know where we’d rather be.

One Night Stand Costume
Amazon (so basically just about everywhere except Myanmar)

Everyone’s favourite cat-lover’s forum the Yangon Expat Connection Google group has put its kitty-litter/plumbing concerns to one side this week in favour of a much more pressing concern: where to buy a Halloween costume. We get it – it’s going to be tough standing out this year among the horde of Donald Trump masks, so we’ve done the hard work for you and found this One Night Stand on Amazon. It’s both a singular nightstand and a one-night stand. Geddit? Of course you still have to figure out how to get it delivered to Myanmar – we can’t do everything.

JAM IT! Halloween party
Taw Win Centre, 45 Pyay Road, Dagon township
October 31, 6pm

JAM IT! rises from the crypt with music from Gabriel & Friends, The Myth, No U Turn, Si Phyo Min and special guests IDIOTS, as well as live graffiti by Wunna Aung Satan, MGK and Monsta.

Ouija: Origin of Evil (2016)
Nay Pyi Daw Cinema, Sule Pagoda Road
10am, 12:30pm, 3:30pm, 6:30pm and 9:30pm

Open wide!Open wide!

What better way to celebrate Halloween than with a good old-fashioned fright flick? This American supernatural horror is the second instalment in the Ouija franchise, but don’t let that put you off: According to film review website Rotten Tomatoes, which scored it 82 percent on its tomatometer, Ouija: Origin of Evil is a “surprisingly scary” follow-up to its lacklustre predecessor.
