We still haven’t figured out what we’re wearing for Halloween (and we only have four more weeks).
1. Queen Victoria, perhaps? High tea at the Palmer House Hilton, 17 E. Monroe, from 2-4 p.m. might get us in the mood; $35, in the lobby bar. Info: (312) 726-7500.
2. Or this old standby: Aaargh, “Real Pirates” at the Field Museum, 1400 S. Lake Shore (312-922-9410), sets sail on Oct. 25. Better catch it this weekend. The $29 fee includes entry to the exhibit and general admission to the museum.
3. Or channel our inner Poe: The works of Edgar Allan Poe get a macabre twist thanks to the Neofuturists, 5153 N. Ashland, at 7:30 p.m.; $15. Reservations recommended (773-275-5255 or www.neofuturists.org).
