Halloween Along Morganford

Boo! Has anyone else noticed that the strip of Morganford from Arsenal down to Utah has become a lot less scary of late? I mean, decent restaurants, bars, and now even cute shops are really filling in. You can celebrate on this Friday night, October 27, when Grove Furnishings and the Vintage Haberdashery throw themselves a lil' Halloween bash, complete with tarot card readings, refreshments, trick-or-treating and a sweet 15% discount if you arrive in costume. That's worth throwing an eyes-cut-out sheet over your head, don't you think?

Dining Deal the Fourth: 609

So many places that try to do both "restaurant" and "nightclub" at the same time end up doing only one, at best, very well. 609 (and its sister, U Lounge) in the Delmar Loop are a happy exception, with a cool bar side and a foodie-respected restaurant, too. Sample their wares with these dining deals: three-course lunch (soup/salad, entrée and dessert) for $10 M-F from 11-2:30 and Sa noon-2:30; or, try the three course dinner, $25, served daily from 5 p.m.

And don't forget to sample some of the tasty drinks from the bar side!

Dining Deal #3: Niche

That's Niche, the cute little Benton Park storefront restaurant, not Niche, the swank furniture/accessory Downtown storefront.

So, now that we've got that cleared up...at Niche, eatery, they have in their enlightenment brought diners the all-hours, all-days prix fixe menu, wherein you can mix and match three courses (that's starter, entrée and dessert) for $35 flat. Where to begin? More important, with choices like dulce de leche semifreddo and vanilla-peach buckle with lemon ricotta ice cream — where to end??
