Don't let the kiddies have all the fun this Halloween - adults know how to get down, too. This one's for the foodies. Luckily, Pounds & Ounces in Chelsea is hosting a 'Disturbingly Divine' Halloween party on October 31st. There will be plenty of tricks and treats at this fiesta. Not only will DJ Jimmy Prada be mixing spooky tunes all evening long, but there will be specialty Halloween cocktails and a tasting menu built around The Seven Deadly Sins created by Chef Cipollone. You can see the full menu below. But don't think the fun ends with sinfully delicious eats and drinks. There will also be a costume contest where winner takes all! And by all we mean open bar for two hours, along with three friends, plus a chef's selection of appetizers. Book your reservation before time runs out! Muahahaha

Folks who want to relax in Washington Square Park should order pizza picnic boxes from Pizza Roma on Bleecker Street in the West Village. These clever carryout containers, named after parks in Rome, are filled with the restaurant’s signature Roman-style pizza al taglio (square pizza by the cut), Paninis, fresh summer salads, and more.
To host a barbecue feast near the East River Esplanade or in your own backyard, turn to Neely’s Barbecue Parlor on the Upper East Side. The restaurant offers hefty picnic baskets to feed three ($89) and an even larger option to feed five ($149), both of which come with items like chopped beef brisket sandwiches, spicy pinto beans with burnt ends and warm peach crisp.
