Johnny’s List of Quirky Boston Events: 10/03/08


I hate to post more than once a week (and this event conflicts with my lecture), but it’s so cool I have to send out the word.

They’re doing a zombie walk in Salem, Sunday from 2pm (party) to 4pm (walk begins) to whenever (afterparty). Basically, you show up dressed like a zombie and get to pretend you’re in a mob and it’s the end of the world. The event is *pretend* and in real life you musn’t touch anyone or be a jerk and walk off the sidewalk into the street.

They want to set a world record (the current one is 1028 zombies, Pittsburgh).


Begins at Salem’s Collins Cove (Off Webb St in Salem, MA) From 2:00 to 4:00, we will have zombie field day.. zombie kickball, frisbee, stumbling around, whatever. We will leave at 4 p.m., and route through the city, ending up at Dodge Street Bar & Grill around 6:00 or 7:00, with marinated veal brains and bands. Jimi Half Dead and the Die Alongs, The Darkers Hues, and more. Zombie movies playing at Salem Cinema all night also.
