If you’re feeling festive (and competitive) this Halloween season, it time to put your pumpkin carving and creativity skills to the test. On Thursday, October 25, Helix Lounge (1430 Rhode Island Avenue NW)¬†will host its Eighth¬†Annual Pumpkin Carving Contest and Happy Hour from 6 until 9 pm.

There’s no need to make a trip to the pumpkin patch prior to the event. Helix Lounge will¬†have 30 pre-scooped pumpkins available, carving tools and drink specials including a Pumpkin Martini and Starr Hill Pumpkin Porter available for participants.¬†And of course, there will also be prizes for two categories: “Most Ghoulish Gourd‚ÄĚ and ‚ÄúMost Political Pumpkin‚ÄĚ (in honor of this year’s elections).¬†The winning pumpkins will be displayed at the lounge through Halloween night.

Pumpkins will be distributed on a first-come-first-serve basis, so get there early!

For more information, call¬†202-462-9001¬†or visit Helix Lounge’s website.
