Monday Night Movies: Hocus Pocus
Glam Doll Donuts
This Monday, Glam Doll in northeast Minneapolis is turning into a movie theater and hosting a free Halloween movie screening. The 1993 cult classic Hocus Pocus stars Sarah Jessica Parker, Kathy Nijimy, and Bette Midler as three evil witches, resurrected in Salem after spending hundreds of years under a curse. Only one tween can stop them from sucking the youth out of children. Doughnuts, popcorn, nachos, and wine and beer will be available for purchase. Monday, 7-9 p.m. 519 Central Ave. NE, Minneapolis; 612-223-8071. --Jessica Armbruster

Dark Fatha Halloween Party
Bent Brewstillery
Bent Brewstillery remains one of the most unique breweries in the state, and not just because they make gin, rum, whiskey, and beer. One of the brewstillery’s most notable creations is Dark Fatha, a bold emperial stout with layers of goodness hidden beneath that gloomy exterior. This year’s release comes on Halloween, which means the beer will be paired with a costume contest. Wednesday also marks the debut of Dark Fatha Brewer’s Reserve, aged in whiskey barrels and kicked up a notch with toasted coconut and roasted chili peppers. Even non-beer fans should find something to enjoy this evening, however, as Bent will also be serving cocktails for one-night only. 4 p.m. to midnight Wednesday. Free. 1744 Terrace Dr., Roseville; 844-879-2368. --Loren Green

"Grace" L-R: Work by Walter Griffin, Beverly Tipton Hammond

Minnesota African American Heritage Museum and Gallery
After celebrating its grand opening in September, the Minnesota African American Heritage Museum and Gallery presents its latest exhibition. “Grace” features photography by Walter Griffin and paintings by Beverly Tipton Hammond. Hats worn by African American women, often to church, is the central theme of their work for this show. Items from Kevin Henderson of Mr. H’s hats will also be displayed. The group showcase provides an opportunity to celebrate the long-held tradition of hat-wearing in the black community through photographs and colorful paintings offering a more abstract homage to black womanhood and style. There will be an opening reception on Thursday, November 1, from 5 to 7 p.m. 1256 Penn Ave. N., Minneapolis. Through January 31, 2019 --Sheila Regan
