Businesses to host Halloween-themed events this weekend

Get in the Halloween spirit at a masquerade ball in the spooky Adelphi Hotel.
 SARATOGA SPRINGS — You couldn't ask for a better Halloween bash venue than the historic (and rumored to be haunted) Adelphi Hotel at 365 Broadway.

This Saturday, Oct. 15, local not-for-profit group ASPIRe N.Y., will host its third annual masquerade ball from 6:30 to 10 p.m.

ASPIRe stands for Autism Spectrum Peer Integration and Recreation and the organization is founded on a community-based approach, which provides recreation and activity groups for teens and young adults with Asperger's syndrome and a range of other Autism spectrum social disorders.

A major fundraiser for the organization, the masquerade ball will feature a dinner buffet provided by Augie's restaurant in Ballston Spa, live music by Big Medicine, dancing and a cash bar.

Guests can also bid online for a variety of silent auction items provided by local businesses and artisans before the event by clicking here

Tickets for the event are just $50 and if you bring guests, it's $45 for each additional person.

Guests are encouraged to get in the Halloween spirit and enjoy the Victorian atmosphere of the Adelphi by wearing costumes or dressing in evening wear with masks. 

A fun night for a good cause is bound to make this an enjoyable evening for all who attend.

 
Find out your destiny at Chic Underneath's tarot party
SARATOGA SPRINGS — It might be a lingerie and waxing boutique, but Chic Underneath will draw all sorts of customers to its doors at 7 Spring Street this weekend for a special tarot party from 6 to 9 p.m. on Friday, Oct. 14.

Chic Underneath owners Lauren Plasencia and Kailyn McLaughlin have Mary Shimp scheduled to give free tarot readings during the event. 

While you're waiting to find out your fortune, guests can sip champagne, taste some snacks and shop plenty of special deals on lingerie and undergarments.

I had the privilege to attend Chic Underneath's opening party and I give this boutique a special nod because the event was above and beyond. Both Plasencia and McLaughlin's family members provided a spread of gourmet treats, champagne with strawberries and a selection of beer stocked at the door ready to be thrust into the hand of any uncomfortable male customer. 

While I can't guarantee this event will have all the bells and whistles of the last one, knowing the owners and their families I feel confident in saying this should be a great event to start your weekend.
