S.A.S.S. Presents: Real and Scary Historical Halloween
Pete’s Candy Store (709 Lorimer St., Brooklyn)

The Society for the Advancement of Social Studies (SASS!) is proud to present a series of lectures designed to both entertain and enlighten. One Monday, each month, we will discuss a different historical topic that you probably knew at one point but don’t remember anymore, plus THEMED DRINK SPECIALS.

October’s lecture is “Real and Scary Historical Halloween,” so get ready to be creeped out by things that aren’t just in your imagination. You’ll be introduced to a cornucopia of ancient corpses, figure out which islands/basements to avoid if you don’t want to be eaten by cannibals, and learn exactly what it is that makes serial killers so special.

Last month’s meeting was standing room only, so show up early to get a good spot and take advantage of Pete’s awesome happy hour.
