Cibo Hallowine

Can't celebrate Halloween on Wednesday night? Get you drink on this Sunday afternoon at Cibo Urban Pizzeria Café -- and feel good about it. This year's Hallowine is a fundraiser for Joseph Grant, an eighth grader who recently underwent a heart transplant. Chef Guido Saccone will be preparing a special menu for the event, and there will be lots of wine to taste while listening to live music from Pick n' Holler and the Sweetbleeder. Pre-sale tickets are $20 for adults, $10 for 18 and under. Prices increase by $5 on Sunday, with the fee waived for all costumed guests.

Candy Corn Ice Cream at Pink Spot

What's better than candy corn? Homemade candy corn, for one. But if you don't want to take the time to construct and cut all those little triangles, there's one more option to up the ante on your candy: Pink Spot's candy corn ice cream. Orange and yellow ice creams mix together in a white vanilla base to make this subtle candy corn tribute that's sweet enough to satisfy your craving for the real thing. Pink Spot has two other seasonal flavors we're loving: sweet yet slightly bitter Guinness stout and, maybe the best take on the autumnal craze, pumpkin praline with whiskey caramel sauce.

Last Chance to Eat at Contigo Peru

If you've never sampled the authentic and incredibly delicious Peruvian food at Mesa's Contigo Peru, now is your last chance. The restaurant is closing its doors on Sunday -- but not without a last hurrah! This Saturday, October 27, Contigo Peru is celebrating its three years of business with a night of live music and final dishes. Starting at 9 p.m., this farewell party is $5 per person, and seating is limited. Call now to reserve a spot to ensure you get a last taste of lomo saltado, a flavorful stir fry of tenderloin beef, onions, tomatoes, and French fries served over rice. Add fried plantains and an egg sunny side up for something extra special.

Cibo's patio looks shockingly like the patio at The Vig in Arcadia, right down to the patio bar and food.
