Article excerpt


At long last, a Saturday night Halloween, and one that has a bonus hour of either revelry or recovery (depending on your needs) built into it, thanks to the time change. Yes, indeed, the moons are aligned in support of the howling.

Info: 3630 Park St.; 7:30 p.m. to midnight; $75; (904) 381-0909 for reservations.

Info: 1187 Edgewood Ave. S.; 10 p.m. to 2 a.m.; $5; 18 & up;

Info: 1528 Hendricks Ave. …
