Some times all a person needs is to hire a babysitter, grab a date and set out for a little adult entertainment. And what’s wrong with that, especially at this most spooky of times – Halloween weekend?
Here are some ideas for you 21-and-over folks on how to get the most bang for your babysitter buck – or, if you’re single or sans offspring, how to avoid all the kids and their Toy Story and Yo Gabba Gabba costumes and candy-stealing antics.

Where: 15157 E. 106th Street North in Sperry

Your blood suddenly runs cold – you’ve realized there’s no turning back. The Psycho Path may be your only way home. Yikes! When there’s a haunted path, a spooky ride-through and a haunted house, there’s sure to be scares and screams for all. Tickets range $8-40; visit the Psycho Path site for details and ticket sales.
