The Halloween Séance Date
Foolproof spooky evening, no costume required
Halloween tends to be a young man’s game.
But the spooky date — done well, with minimal cheese — has a lifelong appeal.
And this is about as spooky as a date gets.
Next week, rustic chic Williamsburg B&B Urban Cowboy is hosting a series of Victorian séances. Tickets are extremely limited. We suggest you grab two now.
The evening begins with an hour of cocktails and bites – and presumably a chat about your dead relatives – in UC’s gorgeous main house (where we shot our Fall Style Issue).
Afterwards, you’ll adjourn to their back cabin for the séance proper.
The séance is presided over by mentalist/magician Jason Suran.
He does mind readin’ and card flippin’ so well that celebs are often reduced to “Whoa … f*ck.”
The ceremony’s divided into two halves: light (“connecting with energy in the room”) and dark (“getting that energy to speak back to you”).
Suran isn’t messing around — this stuff is seriously eerie. It’s pregnant-women-and-those-with-heart-conditions-not-allowed type of stuff.
Post-show, stroll to nearby watering hole St. Mazie for a nightcap in their cellar — ask the staff about chairs moving and glassware mysteriously flying off the shelves down there.
Great place to enjoy some spirits.
Nota bene: Fans of St. Mazie’s haunted subterranean den should be aware they’re also doing a special dinner screening of The Cabinet of Dr. Caligari with a live score next Wednesday. Creep on creepin’ on.
