Posted on: 2018-10-10
What: Sin Sisters Band Halloween Party and Coat Drive
Where: Owenego Inn & Beach Club, 40 Linden Ave., Branford, CT
When: 10/26/2018 (Friday), 7:30 p.m.
First it was the 25th anniversary Halloween bash to end all bashes. The year after was even better. We didn't think you could top it but last year you did. This October 26th, a Friday night, our aim is to outperform even your wildest expectations.
Word is that this coming winter will be a bitter one. What better way to bid adieu to fall and usher in the winter than by reaching into your closet not just for the perfect costume but for that coat that hasn't been worn since the 20th century so that our neighbors in need stay toasty warm?
So here's the deal. We'll provide the entertainment, the hors d'oeuvres, the Halloween treats, the stunning setting of the Owenego, and the guarantee that you will be dancing like there's no November 1st. You provide the great costumes and, if you have one that you no longer need, a gently used coat or two.
Prizes for best costume, best Sin-Sister lookalike, and most original costume.
Everyone wins!

Wethersfield - Witches & Tombstones Tours
Posted on: 2018-10-10
What: Witches & Tombstones Tours
Where: 211 Main St., Wethersfield, CT
When: 10/27/2018 - 10/28/2018, 10 a.m. - 4 p.m.
Bone-chilling, yet historically accurate, Webb-Deane-Stevens Museum's Witches and Tombstones Tours will be held Saturday and Sunday, October 27 and 28. $18 per person. These 90-minute, timed tours leave every 45 minutes starting at 10 a.m. Advance tickets go on sale September 25. *Please note - Witches and Tombstones Tours include walking on uneven ground and the use of stairs and are not appropriate for children under 12.
Witches and Tombstones Tours begin in the museum's Stevens House. Visitors step back in time and into the parlor set up for the wake of little Henry Stevens, who perished in 1828 at the age of three. The tiny coffin is surrounded by tansy and rosemary, herbs used to mask any "odors." The windows and mirrors are covered, and a small silhouette representing Henry is displayed. A silhouette would likely have been the only portrait the family would have to remember him by. A guide will detail 19th-century mourning practices, how illnesses were treated in the Stevens House, and how the living dealt with fears of being buried alive.
The second stop on the tour is the Wethersfield Ancient Burying Ground. Visitors will view Henry Stevens's tiny headstone and those of his father and mother, nearby. Among other gruesome particulars, visitors will view the grave of those who met their end during Connecticut's first mass murder and see how gravestones warn the living of their own impending peril.
The third stop is the circa 1714 Buttolph-Williams House, for tales from the notorious Wethersfield Witch Trials - which preceded the Salem Witch Trials by 30 years. The confession of witchcraft by Wethersfield resident Mary Johnson in 1648 was the first of 43 Connecticut cases, with 11 of them ending in execution. Katherine Harrison narrowly escaped the noose thanks to a technicality. Instead, she was banished and financially ruined.
Located in the heart of Connecticut's largest historic district, the Webb-Deane-Stevens Museum provides the quintessential New England experience - from the American Revolution to the early 20th century. Tours include the 1752 Joseph Webb House, where General George Washington met with French General Rochambeau and planned the military campaign leading to the end of the Revolutionary War; the 1770 Silas Deane House, built for America's first diplomat to France; and the 1788 Isaac Stevens House, which depicts Connecticut life in the 18th and 19th centuries.
