All Hallow’s Eve is nigh and spirits will soon be roaming everywhere. You’ll even find them at Bayside’s friendly pubs, where booze — and spirits — will be flowing non-stop during the scariest weekend of the year.

Bayside residents are getting ready for a potentially massive pub crawl that will be hitting neighborhood streets Saturday, Oct. 28, when zombies, mummies, ghouls, and other frightful creatures crawl into town and scare the bejesus out of everyone.

When the annual Halloween Pub Crawl gets underway, you and your friends can join the fun, along with other costumed and masked partygoers, and enjoy a variety of cocktails served up Halloween-style, at the many venues that are part of the crawl. It’s a soiree that you won’t want to miss, according to organizers “of the world’s biggest pub crawl,”

What respectable crawler could say no to sampling the best drink specials all day long at the top-rated bars in Bayside?

This time of year, you can really get creative. So, if you don’t already have a disguise, get one or make one quick for this special occasion, but don’t forget to get your tickets soon.

“We produce many events throughout the year, all across the country,” crawl organizer Dmitry Strok said. “Bayside is an area that is truly developing as a hotspot in Queens for nightlife and hospitality.”

In case you haven’t noticed, the mostly quiet, residential neighborhood has indeed re-emerged as a vibrant community known for its sophisticated, but fun-loving party crowd, as well as its great shopping options, and diverse restaurants and eateries, especially along popular and bustling Bell Boulevard.

Whoever or whatever you’re going to be on Halloween, come out with hundreds of creepy crawlers and you’ll get a pub crawl map that will outline the best route, drink specials, and offers.

Since All Hallows’ Eve is supposed to be one of those creepy nights when there’s a thin veil between this world and the other, those roaming spirits should be more accessible to humans. But, if for some reason you can’t connect with any, why not find a nice earthly soul — or several — to hang out with, and paint the town red, as they say?

Whether you’ll be able to remember it all the next day is up to you.

If you’re participating in the pub crawl, you can register at The Crown Room, located at 39-17 Bell Blvd. Event staff will provide you with a wrist band, and you can enjoy a few cocktails or draft beers before you join other costumed revelers and discover some of the best-known bars in the area, each with a different ambiance.

This is a freestyle crawl and crawlers can visit any bar at their own pace. No free drinks or food are provided.

Halloween Pub Crawl tickets, which cost $10, are available at

You can also call 888-998-6609 to get your tickets.

These bars and restaurants are ruining the "Mostly Quiet - remerged neighborhood" with trash dumping drunks..... The only people benefiting are the business owners who live elsewhere, away from all the noise and filth they create.
