More DC Halloween Bites

Shake Shack offers two extra ways to make your Halloween costume seem a bit tighter today through Thursday: the Halloweenie ($4), an all-beef hot dog split and griddled, topped with pumpkin mustard, crumbled bacon, cranberries and sage, and the Shack O’Lantern Shake ($5.50) made of vanilla frozen custard mixed with pumpkin, marshmallow and autumn spices (Dupont, 202-683-9922; Nationals Park, 646-747-6654; Penn Quarter, 202-800-9930).

The Pig hosts its second annual Halloween dinner this week, when the staff dresses up like zombies and chef Michael Bonk serves a special five-course dinner menu featuring dishes like heart and blood pasta, deep-fried bone marrow and scrambled eggs with brains. Two gory drink specials will also be available. While the staff fully gets into the Halloween spirit only on Thursday, the menu and themed cocktails will be available from Tuesday through Saturday along with the full regular menu. The tasting menu costs $35 per person, and reservations are recommended (202-290-2821).

Buzz hosts a Halloween cookie-decorating party Wednesday from 2-4 PM, when kids will be able to choose from ghosts, pumpkins and more to decorate with icing and sprinkles. The first cookie is free and additional cookies to decorate cost $1 each. On Halloween, Buzz costumed children will receive treats from 2-6 PM, and parents who bring their little ones receive $1 off fall beverages (Alexandria, 703-600-2899; Arlington, 703-650-9676).

Chipotle Mexican Grill brings back its Boorito Halloween fundraiser Thursday from 4 PM to closing, when anyone dressed in costume can purchase a burrito, bowl, salad or tacos at any Chipotle for $3. Proceeds of up to $1 million will benefit the Chipotle Cultivate Foundation, a nonprofit that works to raise awareness of food issues and supports ranchers and farmers.
