Last Minute Costume Ideas from Cyclone Anaya’s

This week, on Saturday 10/29, we are hosting our annual Halloween party and costume contest at each of our locations. All of your favorite ghosts and ghouls will be in attendance, howling the night away with spooky-strong spirits, frighteningly good bites, soul-shaking music, and of course, tricks and treats.

The party goes from 6 PM to 11 PM and the costume contests will run from 7 PM to 9 PM, with judging starting promptly at 9 PM. The top three costumes at each restaurant will receive a gift card prize; 1st place will receive $300, 2nd place gets $200, and $100 goes to 3rd place. Our Durham location, which will have a DJ that night, will even host a doggie costume contest on our pet-friendly patio! That contest will begin at 11 AM, with winners announced at 1 PM. Winners must be present to win at all contests!
