What's Up Downtown October!

Holidays here we come!  Can you believe we are into October?  But that means Halloween will be here before we know it and there is a lot going on in Downtown all month long.

As usual, there is something for everyone, however, the list below is what I am most excited for.

The opera that is said to be a must see, Don Giovanni at the Dorthy Chandler Pavilion is on my list shows for sure.  It is playing until October 14th.

Looking for fun and exercise?  CICLAVIA is this Sunday, October 7th!  Ride it or walk it, it will be fun either way and it is a dog friendly event!  As well, if you are feeling a little more competitive, join the City Race: Quest for the Keys scavenger hunt on October 27th.

Looking for a fright night or to be spooked?  Downtown has a lot to offer for Halloween celebrations on and before Halloween.  Here are a few:
The Blumhouse of Horrors - Get frightened in this hunted house created by the producer of Paranormal Activity and Insidious.  Open October 4th - November 4th, get your tickets today.
Friday Night Fright Flicks in Pershing Square - Each Friday of October catch a scarey movie in the park.  It all starts this Friday, October 5th.
Screamfest Horror Film Festival - Don't miss this 12th annual horror film festival showcasing new genre films from all around the world in competition.  You can check this out at the L.A. Live Regal Theater October 12 - 21.
Halloween Party for Downtown LA Kids - This is the Fifth Annual Halloween party for kids and this year it will be at the beautiful Grand Park on October 31st!  If you have a kid or are a kid, don't miss the fun.

Those are great activities for you, but what about the new places to eat, right?!   As you know, this is my favorite thing to research.  I am excited to check out the new Colori Kitchen at 800 Figueroa St. for Lunch, so excited they opened a second location, but be sure to note, it is for LUNCH ONLY.  I am also looking forward to trying Cafe Noa at 816 S Grand.  I think we have all seen that Le Ka is now open at 800 W 6th, it is good for Happy Hour as well as their great restaurant.

Whatever you do, I hope it includes Downtown!  There is a lot to do and a lot of fun to be had.

Happy October!
