The Witch Craft Halloween pop-up party returns to Farmingdale this fall after a successful launch last year.
âWhat inspired me to bring him back is the incredible amount of support and popularity he gained over the past year,â says Mike Marra, president of Unique Social Events and creator of the event. .
Just like the original party, this pop-up will once again take place in a festively decorated room with a nod to the 1993 Disney movie “Hocus Pocus”. Entertainment will be provided by the singer sisters Sanderson, played by actresses Bette Midler, Kathy Najimy and Sarah Jessica Parker in the film about a trio of 17th century Salem witches who are accidentally resurrected in the 20th century.
Marra says that this time around there will be some changes: the singing performance will be extended and diners with reservation tickets will receive “Hocus Pocus” souvenir mugs.
The gathering’s âSalem Eatsâ harvest menu has also been expanded. On the menu, fresh dishes such as “Witches Hair Pescatore” (pasta with angel hair with squid ink), the “Silence of the Lambs” lamb lollipop holder and “Grilled Bat Wings” are really chicken). New signature cocktails will also be served on the “Pick Your Poison” menu, with items such as “Salem Pumpkin Spice”, “Binx Black Cat Cosmo” and “Witches Brew for Two”. Those who are not looking for the dinner show can come after the end of the catering service, enter for free and have a drink; a DJ will perform during these after hours sessions.
Marra notes that just as last year’s Halloween pop-up led to a series of seasonal pop-up events at her business, âafter Halloween we’re going to jump right into [a Christmas pop-up party] where we have some exciting additions. “
The event takes place from October 6 to 31, Wednesday to Sunday, with four sessions on Wednesdays and Thursdays (6 a.m., 6.15 p.m., 8 p.m., 8:15 p.m.), six on Fridays (additional shows at 10 p.m., 10:15 p.m.) and then 12 on Saturdays and Sundays (between 12 p.m. and 10:15 p.m., with brunch served from 12 p.m. to 4 p.m.). Tickets are $ 20 to $ 35, depending on the day and time, and tickets are available in advance through the website. Each session lasts 90 minutes and entrance fees do not apply to food and drink purchases. Walk-in visits are accepted based on table availability on a first come, first served basis.
