The undead are taking over Chinatown, and they’re thirsty! There’s only one remedy: the annual Hawaii Zombie Crawl on Oct. 18. The event features costume contests and even undead make-up sessions. The pub crawl lures a variety of victims, from UH professors and students to military, all of whom shuffle between participating bars, including The Fix (formerly SoHo), BambuTwo, JJ Dolan’s, Bar 35, Downbeat Diner, Manifest, Hanks, The Dragon Upstairs and O’Tooles for drink specials, live music and dancing. How does a zombie dance? “As sparingly as possible, to keep their limbs on,” says Dania Weinberg, the event’s chief brain surgeon. Wristbands $8 to $15, hawaiizombiecrawl.com.
