On Saturday, Sunset Park chef Kar Yee is serving up Hong Kong-style dim sum at Court Tree Collective from 6-9pm, and tickets are just $12. Grab a seat and treat yourself to some delicious bites, like shrimp paste fried rice, pork dumplings, and spicy bok choy. Trying to get amped up for Halloween? Spend the evening at Rooftop Reds’ Pumpkin Carving Contest starting at 5pm. For $30, you get two glasses of wine and a pumpkin to carve–either as a solo effort or with teammates. Judges (aka people who go to Rooftop Reds’ special screening of The Shining on Halloween night) will pick the top entries, and prizes include a party for 30+ people at the rooftop facility. Finally, Gemini & Scorpio is hosting a giant, immersive Stranger Things-themed bash on Saturday night starting at 9pm in a yet-undisclosed Bushwick warehouse. Return to the Upside Down is this year’s edition of the ninth annual Masquerade Macabre, a huge party that requires legitimate costumes for entry. Expect to see some really creative stuff, to dance all night, and to drink tons of absinthe until the very wee hours. Tickets can currently be purchased online for $25.
