After two days cooped up in your apartment with no hope of subway service soon, you might want to re-watch The Shining as a cautionary tale about cabin fever. But not as an idea generator. Or, you could remember that it’s Halloween, after all! We’ve gone over what’s going on with the kids, now here are some fun adult events for that Hurricane Pecan Sandies costume that you’ve been feverishly working on. Now put down the ax.
Matt & Meghan’s “HaLOLoween Party” at Littlefield – A night of stand-up comedy with a post-show costume contest for cash prizes. Special guest Frank Conniff from MST3K will be there, too! That guy knows all about being trapped in a small space with only Netflix. $5 Tickets online/$8 at the door, 8pm, 622 Degraw St., Park Slope.
Halloween Night at Boo(!!) Co. – No, it’s not a brand new place, just Good Co. getting into the spirit of the season. Plan to party with a DJ, pumpkin ale, and apple cider. Free, 9pm, 10 Hope Street, Williamsburg
Halloween at The Way Station – The Way Station is still set to do the time warp with a Rocky Horror screening at midnight and some zydeco music before that. No word on whether everyone there is going as Dr. Who throughout the ages. Free, 8pm, 683 Washington Ave, Prospect Heights
Dionne Werewolf and Hall-Oween and Oats – Union Hall hosts a band dressed as werewolves singing the hits of Dionne Warwick and Hall and Oates. Sounds good as long as real werewolves aren’t mixed in with the band. $8, 8pm, 702 Union Street, Park Slope

Big Freedia The Queen Diva at Brooklyn Bowl – A polite way to talk about Big Freedia would be to say that she’s an interesting and unique performer.
