Pumpkin Carving Still On
Despite the truly miserable weather, Helix Lounge's Pumpkin Carving Contest and Happy Hour is still on tonight -- it will just take place inside the hotel rather than on the patio.
If you've never been to the annual event -- my favorite excuse to stand around with a carving knife in one hand and a cocktail in the other -- it's worth heading over to Logan Circle. Everyone is invited to be creative and decorate one of the pre-scooped pumpkins, and there are great prizes: The overall winner receives a weekend night's stay at the Hotel Helix, while the "scariest" pumpkin gets a $50 gift certificate.
Just try to get there early: The competition starts at 6 and ends at 8, and there are only 25 pumpkins, claimed on a first-come, first-served basis. Need another incentive? Happy hour, which includes half-price burgers and beers, is extended to 8 p.m.
