Dancing and drinking with today’s congressmen doesn’t sound so fun. They’re a pretty unpopular bunch.
But what about living it up with some long-dead lawmakers? Capitol Hill’s Congressional Cemetery, where bold-facers of yore repose, is throwing a Halloween bash, which they expect a few of their creepier residents to attend.
The fourth annual “Ghosts and Goblets Soiree” on Oct. 26 promises candle-lit tours of the historic grounds, plus cocktails and snacks in the vault originally built to hold the bodies of deceased members of Congress. Which sounds far livelier than your typical congressional reception.
You can buy tickets here.
It’s a Loop-recommended event, as we can personally vouch for the bountiful hors d’oeuvres and generally spooky vibe.
