Things to Do As An Adult for Halloween in Boston
Halloween is almost here and there’s no reason you, as an adult, shouldn’t get just as excited as you used to as a little kid when you’d dress up and go trick or treating. We still want to have fun and dress up and eat lots of candy. Now though, in our adult years, we can step it up even another notch and add some sophisticated bites and booze in the mix. Boston is a great place for some adult trick or treating to happen and we’ve made a list of great places where you can do just that on and leading up to Halloween. No one’s too old for the tricks and treats of Halloween so make sure you treat yourself this year!
Head to one of our favorite neighborhoods, the South End, this Halloween for a night of treats at Coppa. This cozy spot is known for their inventive Italian small plates. Join them for their Halloween Patio Party from 3pm – 6pm where they’ll serve drinks for kids and adults, Sicilian pizza by the slice, and arancini balls. Whether you’re fueling up to trick or treat with your kids or shamelessly enjoying Halloween (as you should) as an adult then Coppa’s doors are open to you!
