We’re partied out, and technically Halloween just started. Darn you holidays that fall on weekdays, you always throw us off. At least if we stay in tonight, we can get up early to wait for the stores to open so we can buy up all the discount Halloween candy. And we’re not holding back, because our planned events this week are all completely free:
WE DON’T WANT TO MISS:
GHOST WALK AT CITY HALL
Monday, October 31, 6:30 p.m. to 8 p.m.
Politics can be scary. SF City Guides says Civic Center used to be the site of a cemetery, and that’s just one of the spooky tidbits you’ll learn about during this free tour. It only happens once a year on All Hallow’s Eve, and even though you might be scared out of your wits, leave your mace at home, you will be subject to a security search.

ALSO WORTH CHECKING OUT:
ONE CITY ONE BOOK: MARY ROACH IN CONVO WITH ADAM SAVAGE
Wednesday, November 2, 6 p.m.
Even if you haven’t read Roach’s Packing for Mars, you’ll still enjoy her talk with MythBuster’s Adam Savage. This is the best-selling, Oakland author’s 4th book, and the talk will start with a premiere of Rockets of Yesterday, a video tour of 50s and 60s rockets. Seating is limited, so we recommend getting there as early as possible.

ALTERED BARBIES AT SHOTWELL 50
Through November 20, Mon–Sat: 1 p.m. to 8 p.m., Sun: 1 p.m. to 5 p.m.
A little hair of the dog for you when it comes to spooky, ghoulish, gruesomeness. Barbie may be one of America’s most recognizable icons, but not after these artists get to her with some scissors, glue and other craft materials. It's the artistic form of plastic surgery.
