what's up the pike: early halloween

The Skater Mob, Ellsworth Drive
Not quite zombies, but close.

- It's Zombie Walk season again, which means the streets of Montgomery County's faux-downtowns will once again flow like rivers with the blood of the undead. This Saturday, of course, is the Silver Spring Zombie Walk, hosted by Thayer Avenue and Silver Spring, Singular. They're asking you to meet at the Quarry House, Georgia Avenue at Bonifant Street, at 7:30pm before staggering up Ellsworth Drive.

- And over on The Other Pike, Cindy from Rockville Central is holding a Zombie Walk of their own. That'll be next Friday, October 30. They're meeting 7:30pm (is this the half-hour of the undead?) outside the Apollo Bar at 12 N. Washington Street before stalking through Rockville Town Square.

- If that's not enough for you, the Rocky Horror Show - a theatrical version of the 1976 cult-film Rocky Horror Picture Show has its second local run this month with the Kensington Arts Theatre. There'll be performances Friday and Saturday both this week and next (which, of course, includes Halloween) and continuing well into November at the Kensington Town Hall, 3710 Mitchell Street. Check out KAT's website for more info.

- The East County Regional Services Center is hosting a collection drive for victims of domestic violence. Bring toiletries, books, or toys to the center at Briggs Chaney and Robey roads anytime through this Friday. They'll be compiled into kits for visitors to the Betty Ann Krahnke Center in Rockville, serving families affected by domestic violence. For more info, call 240/777-8400.
