Stop by the green tent on Bethesda Lane near bluemercury first, to get your free trick-or-treat bag.
How about Roosters Men's Grooming Center on Arlington Road? During Trick-or-Treating, adults can receive a $10 gift card to use on any service for a first time visit, and a hot lather add-on for a shave (you don't need to get the shave tonight, though!). Kids will get candy and light refreshments.
Speaking of bluemercury, ladies, you will want to stop by during the event to try their M-61 Glow Express treatment for free.
For families in costume, Le Creuset will have free candy (even if you're not in costume), and a free cookie cutter for the first 30 costumed clans.
You can get free candy too at Jaleo, but adults might want to try a free sample of gazpacho.
Creative types can create their own Lilly print with crayons at the Pink Palm's drawing competition.
Equinox will have guest passes and temporary tattoos for kids.
And those are just a few of the treats in store tonight.
Be sure to enjoy a free live performance by local violinist Daisy Castro.
Not quite ready for Halloween yet?
Stop by Bruce Variety at 8011 Woodmont Avenue for costumes and decorations that will make you, and your house or apartment, stand out this Friday night.
Tako Grill's menu will remain the same at the new location, they confirmed last evening.

Flanagan's Harp & Fiddle is promising a High Score Halloween, with a live (as opposed to undead) DJ, light show, and an ominously vague-sounding "Special Visual Presentation." Admission is free, and you can win cash prizes in their costume contest. There will also be drink specials, as you can see in the photo at top.

Meanwhile, the annual Nightmare on St. Elmo Street (actually Avenue, for GPS purposes) Halloween bash returns to Union Jack's Bethesda. The costume contest there has a travel grand prize, with a winner's choice of destinations: Las Vegas, New Orleans or New York City. There will also be other cash and prizes at stake for costume-sporting patrons. Halloween is this Friday, so start making plans now.

The second rendering gives an idea of how such a new building would back up to the single-family-home residential neighborhood directly behind it. Fire Department officials have not yet proposed a specific plan for the site, but are evaluating options to fund a full renovation or replacement of the aging firehouse.

The developer also announced its first lease, after many months of struggling in Montgomery County's abysmal office market. It's not quite the prize that Intelsat would have been, as small business-financing firm RapidAdvance is simply moving from its existing Bethesda office to the new building. It will occupy a full floor at 4500, according to the Washington Business Journal.
After county officials fumbled Intelsat's interest in being the anchor tenant at 4500, the firm instead became the latest to choose Northern Virginia, with its friendlier business climate and Tysons' direct access to highways and Dulles International Airport.
Grand opening attendees will also get special deals, including a Toshiba Encore 8-inch 32GB tablet for just $99, or an Xbox 360 for only $99.
Microsoft will present technology grants to community organizations during the 10:30 AM ribbon-cutting ceremony. In addition to products, the store will also feature an Answer Desk where customers can receive expert advice on their Microsoft gadgets and software.
