CHARLESTON, SC - Kick off Halloween at The Monster Bash … A Ballyard Smash presented by Halloween Express on Thursday, Oct. 24, from 7-10 pm at Joseph P. Riley, Jr. Park in the Ashley View Pub, which is Charleston's well-known Thirsty Thursday hot spot.
This Blood Thirsty Thursday at The Joe will feature $1 beer, Sangria Witches Brew and specialty food items including mummified hot dogs and other themed concession items.
The Beer Shake gained national popularity during the 2013 RiverDogs season and now there is a new fall flavor brewing that will be unveiled during the Monster Bash. The limited-edition Pumpkin Beer Shake will be available this one night only. Patrons will be able to indulge in a toppings bar that will include pumpkin seeds, cinnamon, caramel, candy corn and nutmeg. RiverDogs Facebook followers can make recommendations as to what other toppings they would like to try.
DJ Natty Heavy will be spinning from the dark and daunting Ashley View Pub as he does every Thirsty Thursday during the RiverDogs' season.
