Case Study Image

Pumpkins aren’t simply eye candy. In fact, when prepared accordingly, this delightful squash can work its way seamlessly into many a delicious seasonal treat. And you don’t even have to feel bad about indulging on said treats.

Not only are pumpkins delicious, they’re nutritious. Pumpkin seeds have been attributed to promoting heart health and can boost levels of serotonin, keeping you jolly through the season. When it comes to the bright orange flesh of the pumpkin, this fibrous food is high in potassium and can even act as a substantial immune booster thanks to packing Vitamin C, iron and zinc. On top of that, pumpkins have carotenoids that are said to keep cancer at bay while keeping your skin healthy.

In the spirit of the mighty pumpkin, we’ve compiled a mix of local menu items and DIY recipes we encourage you to indulge upon this season.

Come Thursday, there's only one way to avoid hoards of trick or treaters banging down your door: go out. Hide your candy in the cupboard, turn off the lights, and abandon house and home for some adults-only entertainment.

Dinner out sounds so much nicer than dealing with bratty kids in costume, doesn't it? Check out some grown-up eating and drinking options for this year's Halloween festivities, after the jump.
