3. Milwaukee Film Festival

OCT. 15-29 | VIRTUAL

Make sure to catch the Milwaukee Film Festival before it ends on Oct. 29. This Milwaukee tradition decided not to go anywhere when COVID-19 came to town so instead they took a virtual approach. You can watch any of the movies before midnight on Oct. 29 as they are all on-demand. You can either get a pass for the event or go movie by movie through the list.

4. Captain Pabst Comedy Show

FRIDAY AND SATURDAY FROM 8-11 P.M. | 1037 W. JENEAU AVE.

We could all use a laugh during social distancing. Make sure to check out the Captain Pabst Comedy show at the Captain Pabst Pilot House this Friday and Saturday. The tickets are $15 with a parking option for $5. For a list of their COVID-19 precautions, check their Eventbrite.

5. Halloween Candy & Wine Tasting

SUNDAY FROM 3-9 P.M. | 219 E. ERIE ST.

Want to throw some Halloween fun into your weekend? Check out the Halloween Candy & Wine Tasting at Vino Third Ward. You can get your tickets through their Eventbrite page which has a detailed list of their COVID-19 precautions. One thing to note is that they only allow 16 people every hour and a half due to capacity restrictions. If you feel a bit uneasy doing a wine tasting during the pandemic, you can always pick up one of their take-home packages.
