Here are a few Halloween alerts for thirsty trick-or-treaters who are just a wee-bit old for candy-begging door to door…

In New York:
Restaurateur Richard Sandoval celebrates Day of the Dead at two of his restaurants. Maya presents
Santa Muerte consisting of Don Julio Reposado tequila, roasted pumpkin puree with a champagne float. Pampano offers tequila flights.

In DC:
Urbana features a six-course pumpkin tasting menu - along with a Cider Pumpkintini featuring apple cider, 10 Cane Rum, and Captain Morgan’s Spiced Rum, topped of with a pumpkin foam.
Notti Bianche offers a spooky libation called Green Goblin.
Bar Rouge’s mistress of the bar, Shannon Bridget, created Black Tuesday.

In LA:
Hocus Pocus a new Syrah from Santa Barbara County complements your meal at Angeleno hot-spots: AOC, Campanile, Cafe Stella, Providence, La Terza, Patina and Cafe Pinot.
(Sipster tip: a full profile of the lovely Amy Christine, a LA sommelier who happens to be co-creator of this wine is coming soon on The Liquid Muse…)

Dogfish Head Punkin’ Ale gets good reviews as one of the few good tasting pumpkin beers on the market.
