Halloween week is officially here and for all the teachers out there, that means the sweetest combination words in the English language... mid-term break.
When those in the profession aren't busy educating our future leaders, they can actually enjoy a midweek night out without the guilt. Of course, given that it's spooky season, that privilege isn't just limited to teachers and we all should be able to enjoy a night out or two over Halloween. With that in mind, tonight seems like a great opportunity to do so.
Over on Wexford Street, Opium will be screening a cult horror classic in the form of The Craft. Upon its 1996 release, the movie captivated audiences with its supernatural tale of four teenage girls who dabble in a bit of witchcraft, leading to all kinds of negative repercussions that they frankly should have been more aware of.
The movie was very much a springboard for the career of horror queen Neve Campbell and has since gone on to achieve cult status. Tonight, it will be screened in Opium's Botanical Garden along with Halloween-themed cocktails and popcorn while those who are bit more on the hungry side will be able to avail of Pan-Asian cuisine and a glass of wine for just €20.
Not a bad little Bank Holiday Monday night in store. If it tickles your fancy, you can gather the coven and book your spot here.
