WHAT'S UP TODAY? Alternative Radio chat, ski swaps and scary stuff


Been working for the weekend? Congrats, you made it! You deserve the chance to pick something fun to do today from our extensive event listings, or perhaps you should put your trust in our Staff Picks

If you don't have time to peruse yourself, we're here to help. Here's what caught my eye for Friday, Oct. 24: 

WORDS | Founder of indie, weekly radio show Alternative Radio David Barsamian has written books and hosted shows with the likes of Noam Chomsky and Howard Zinn, among others, and is sure to be an entrancing storyteller when he stops by the Unitarian Universalist Church tonight. 

FOOD & DRINK | A little pumpkin-carving, some live tunes and tasty beverages are in store for Oktoberfest at Kendall Yards

CULTURE | Halloween is one week away, so you better get your haunted house roll on, like, right now! Here's a handy roundup of all kinds of scare spots waiting to creep you out. 

SPORTS | It's opening night of the Mt. Spokane Ski Patrol Swap, meaning you'll want to get there to get your hands on the good stuff before it's gone, and to see a screening of Days of My Youth

DANCE | When I think of Chinese cuisine, I think of belly dancing
