Halloween-themed food events this weekend?

AmblerGirl Oct 25, 2007 02:34 PM

Does anyone know of any fun events going on this weekend that link halloween and food? Philly or the burbs. Since it has been so warm lately, I'm really looking to do something fun and seasonal. There is a ghost tour in Ambler on Sunday where you get a "spooky" drink or dessert afterwards at a local restaurant and we are thinking of doing that (went last year and it was fun) but are looking to see if there is anything else going on to have a whole Halloween themed weekend!
