Week Eight

Wed., Oct. 31

82. HAUNTED — Hundred Acres Manor Haunted Attraction. First up on Halloween should be picking up City Paper’s election issue, which drops the same day as the ghouls and ghosts (shameless, we know). Afterward, try one of the area’s best haunted houses. This one spans a full mile. Continues through Nov. 3. Hundred Acres Manor, 1 Hundred Acres Drive, Bethel Park. $20. hundredacresmanor.com

Thu., Nov. 1

83. MUSIC — Fleetwood Mac. It’s impressive that Fleetwood Mac has remained a consistently beloved entity throughout its long career while providing nonstop drama. Lindsey Buckingham was “fired” from the band, but the Mac still has Stevie Nicks, so who even cares. 7 p.m. PPG Paints Arena, 1001 Fifth Ave, Downtown. Starts at $142. ppgpaintsarena.com

Fri., Nov. 2

84. DANCE — Espæce. Based on writings by French author George Perec, Espæce is a stage piece combining dance, acrobatics, contortion, opera, and theater. A dynamic stage includes a massive moveable wall, among other set pieces in this U.S. premiere. Also Sat., Nov 3. August Wilson Center, 980 Liberty Ave., Downtown. $35. culturaldistrict.org/awc

Sat., Nov. 3

85. STAGE — Of Mice and Men. Written during the Great Depression, Of Mice and Men’s plot still resonates: two unemployed, lonely men searching for the great American dream, and coming up empty. Prime Stage Theatre, known for bringing literature to stage, opens its newest season with this classic tearjerker. Bring tissues. Continues through Nov. 11. Times vary. New Hazlett Theatre, 6 Allegheny Square, North Side. $12-25. primestage.com

Sun., Nov. 4

86. KIDS — 2018 Pet Expo. Bring a furry, feathered, or cold-blooded friend to a weekend filled with activities when the Pet Expo comes to the David L. Lawrence Convention Center. This event features fun for the whole family, including a pet costume contest, a diving dog competition, and a reptile expo. 10 a.m.–5 p.m.  David L. Lawrence Convention Center, 1000 Fort Duquesne Blvd., Downtown. $10 for adults, Free for kids 10 and under. pghpetexpo.com

87. MUSIC — Andy Mineo & LeCrae. Christian music typically gets a bad rap, but Andy Mineo and LeCrae each embraces Christianity in their sounds. Both are hesitant to label themselves as religious artists, because anyone can enjoy their songs. 7:30 p.m. Mr. Smalls Theatre, 400 Lincoln Ave, Millvale. $25. mrsmalls.com

Mon., Nov. 5

88. NEWS — Veterans Breakfast Club at night. Veterans are some of the most respected Americans, and for good reason. The Veterans Breakfast Club — as its name implies — allows community members to interact with vets over breakfast. However, if breakfast doesn’t work for you, check out this event in the evening. 6:30 p.m., Spoonwood Brewing, 5981 Baptist Road, Bethel Park. Free. veteransbreakfastclub.com

Tue., Nov. 6

89. EVENT — Election Day. The 2018 election is arguably the most important midterms in decades. Energy on the left is high at a time when most governments are controlled by conservatives, and leaning farther right. At a fork-in-the-road time in America, this election could decide the country’s direction. Go vote! 7 a.m.-8 p.m. Free. Everywhere. Votespa.com
