At the Tito’s Martini Bar, you can enjoy the Autopsy Apple Martini, Dying for a Dirty Martini, or the Pomegranate Martini.

Our cocktails also include the “Sweet Poison,” a mixture of rum, sweet coconut rum and tangy blue curacao, finished off with pineapple juice – which was chosen by LSC After Dark fans in a poll on our Facebook page!

3) Sherlock exhibition

Want to enhance your detective skills? Stop by LSC’s premium exhibition, The International Exhibition of Sherlock Holmes.

In this interactive adventure, you’ll be transported into Sherlock Holmes’ London – a world filled with innovation and experimentation in the field of forensic science. You’ll learn how Sherlock, a scientific expert ahead of his time, used seemingly trivial observations of clues others missed to solve mysterious crimes.

Follow the footprints, examine the spatter patterns, decipher Morse Code, and more!

The International Exhibition of Sherlock Holmes is available for an additional $6.

4) Creepy gifts from JC Oddities Market

JC Oddities Market returns this month with odd and offbeat gifts, art, and jewelry from local vendors. Bring something spooky home to your loved ones!

5) Delicious food from Midnight Market

Midnight Market also returns this month with local vendors serving deliciously deadly food plates, at only $5 per plate (cash only, please).

Create a virtual microbe painting at an interactive touch table.

Don't miss it!

9) True crime experiments and activities

At the event, we’ll have multiple experiments and activities to help you understand how scientists play a role in true crime and solve some of the most puzzling mysteries!
