2020 Halloween Food & Boo-ze Guide
Halloween is coming soon! While COVID-19 is throwing more traditional celebrations out the window, we can all still get in the spooky spirit around San Diego with these treats (no tricks required).
Boo-zy Specials at Liberty Public Market
Liberty Public Market will be one of the best destinations for boo-zy drink specials. Starting Halloween week, from 12 PM to 8 PM, head to Mess Hall Bar. Or we’d highly recommend the Modern Times tap takeover at Bottlecraft to showcase their latest seasonal releases.
The Presley at Liberty Station will be serving a limited time cocktail for Halloween weekend, the “Presley Potion.” Featuring light rum, strawberry puree, and fresh lime juice.
Slater’s 50/50 is known for going a little over the top with their pork-to-beef ratios in their burgers. They’re also adding some great Halloween specials which are sure to be delicious. Try the “Ghoul Shake,” Vampire Dip and Vampire Flatbread for a scary good treat.

Mr. Trustee’s Ice Cream
