If you consider yourself a horror film aficionado, you’ll want to swing by Krazy Kup tomorrow evening.
Halloween is a beloved holiday for people of all ages and Krazy Kup has created the perfect event to let you and your family enjoy some spooky fun.
The coffee house is hosting its monthly trivia night tomorrow evening, and this time it’s themed entirely around horror movies. If you know all about how pumpkins scream in the dead of night and can name the first victim that fell to Michael Myers’ cold blade, then this trivia night is for you.
“It’s going to have a really wide range of movies,” event host Kameron Athey said. “Of course some kid-friendly stuff, but also some slasher movies and old horror movies so it’s really a wide array of different types of ones we are doing. There’s not really a specific type. Last year when we did it it was more kid-friendly, but this time it was a wide array so that the entire family can enjoy. That’s kind of the goal. The kids can have questions they’ll know the answers to and the adults will be challenged with remembering some trivia from some of their favorite films.”
Each month, Krazy Kup hosts a trivia night and this is the second one they’ve held since events shut down across town due to COVID-19. Their first trivia night was Pixar-themed and families stayed all evening to test their knowledge.
The event starts at 7 p.m. and it’s a first-come, first-serve basis. It’s recommended you arrive by 6:30 to get your drinks and snacks and then head up to the loft. You can play solo or as a team. Teams are designated by table so once the tables are full, the game is at capacity.
There are three rounds and typically the night lasts for the full hour and a half, which should wrap up at 8:30 p.m. There are eliminations after each round as well as some spooky prizes for the winners.
Frank Trunzo, owner of Krazy Kup, said they will also have free drawings throughout the evening for mini monsters.
“It’s Halloween, so we are celebrating the holidays,” Trunzo said. “We are bringing happy holidays back to our lives and we want to feel normal again. We have had a monstrous pandemic. We want to be able to start doing things we enjoy again while still feeling safe.”
The trivia night is just the first of many holiday-themed events. Throughout the holidays, there are always themed pastries and sweet treats for those who want to add some extra pizzazz to their experience.
A Halloween movie marathon is planned for the end of the month with films ranging from cult classics to modern favorites. There will be a variety of costume contests as well for both children and adults.
A new lineup of drinks will also be unveiled soon, hopefully right in time for Halloween. Krazy Kup demands perfection for its products so the staff has been working on perfecting recipes and finding the perfect names for the items for months.
