Start your Wicker Park Halloween adventure at Big Star (1531 N Damen Ave.), fuel your body for the day with Tacos al Pastor or Tacos de Chorizo Verde. On Friday’s they offer $3 whiskey shots, a good way to get stay warm.  If you’re not really into tacos, head to Blue Line Lounge & Grill (1548 N Damen Ave). They have over 32 specialty martinis on their drink menu and a special Halloween Martini, a must try. While at Blue Line, try the mini burgers and sweet potato fries, great finger food to share with friends.

After enjoying great food, you can head over to Tavern (1958 W. North Ave) for a few brews or just to dance. Tavern is the ‘it’ spot of Wicker Park, because the party at Tavern never ends.
