  • It’s about to get scary… Warehouse of Horrors: Gowanus ’73

    One of the best things about October (besides the beer) is getting your scare on. There is really nothing like having something go boo! at you to get your heart racing. It’s invigorating… almost like a workout! And boy do the kids over at Ugly Rhino have a workout for you. They are setting up a new spooky unique haunted house at the Brooklyn Lyceum filled with tragedy and terror called Warehouse of Horrors: Gowanus ’73The back story behind the haunted house goes like this…

    it’s 1970s Brooklyn (most likely super sketchy night time 1970s Brooklyn)….

    After a string of mysterious and grotesque murders at an underground rave party, a complex web of mafia relations, crooked cops, and dangerous drug dealers is revealed.

    The show uses non-traditional storytelling of “social atmosphere” to engage the audience in a very unique way. This means the audience gets to encounters characters and hear each of their stories. Plus, to help everyone feel social the audience will be armed with cocktails, which come free with the purchase of tickets (21+ of course).

    This sounds all spooky and fantastic!

    UglyRhino’s Warehouse of Horrors: Gowanus ‘73 will run October 11-November at The Brooklyn Lyceum (227 4th Avenue at Union Street, Brooklyn), Wednesday through Saturday at 8pm. Tickets ($20) are available at the door, 30 minutes prior to the show. All ticket purchases will include 3 free curated cocktails.
