For those of you who live near or in Roslindale, head to Cafe Rialto to bid goodbye to this Italian restaurant. Drink specials will be available until Friday, and Saturday a big bash will be thrown. Stay tuned to its Facebook page for more information.
For more Halloween fun, Ducali Pizzeria & Bar in the North End is putting on its annual costume party. Dress the part to win a $50 gift certificate to the pizzeria, awarded to one guy and one girl, and hobnob with other ghoulish guests. Because there's no cover charge, it's an off-the-menu bites and cash bar evening, so bring your moola (9 PM-1 AM; 617-742-4144).
On Sunday, relax with a Spook-tacular Tea at Upstairs on the Square in Harvard Square. Marshmallow ghosts, black cat cookies and more are part of the scary yet sweet delectables. Costumes encouraged (1-3:30 PM; $30 per adult; $16 per child 12 and under; 617-864-1933).
