Monsterland Bar & Grill

Dig it!! For Monsterland, Friday the 13th was anything but unlucky. The horror-themed restaurant and nighttime hot spot had its grand opening last week, attracting nearly 1,400 people on Friday and Saturday. It was a strong opening, but the restaurant is still working on finding the silver bullet that will ensure success. Monsterland was originally a two-story haunted house that opened last October. After the Halloween season was over, owner Kevin Wynn conceived of starting a restaurant and nightclub as a way to use the property year-round. Part of the top floor was cleared for the tables and bar, but guests still need to pass a crumbling castle, graveyard and animated props such as a werewolf leering from atop a wall. The downstairs will remain a haunted house, and this October, patrons will be able to watch others being scared on monitors set up on the patio. Story in the link.

Jonathan Frid R.I.P.

I shared this sad news yesterday on Facebook, but was unable to post here until today. Sad news for fans of Dan Curtis' classic Dark Shadows. Jonathan Frid, the immortal Barnabas Collins, has passed away at the age of 87. I had the pleasure of meeting Mr. Frid when I was younger at one of his one man shows of dramatic readings, and he was gracious, entertaining and a true gentelman. R.I.P.
