Attention witches, here’s an adventure this Halloween that includes plenty of potions and riddles. The Witches of East Passyunk Bar Crawl is returning on Wednesday, October 25 from 5 pm – 8 pm with some new twists.
This year’s participants will now get to choose-their-own-adventure-style treasure hunt in which teams answer riddles to advance to the next venue on the map. Crawlers are encouraged to meet at 1904 East Passyunk Avenue where a Marauder’s Map will be distributed.
