We have some suggestions for STUFF TO DO in Charleston, and points all over WV for the next few days. Hardly anybody made graphics this week, so we’re going to start with a plug for a TV event that begins Saturday.

Halloween has been Svengoolie’s season for years now, but this year on METV the party is busting out of the coffin all month long, and it all begins Saturday.

It starts with a shriek on October 1st when the month kicks off with a movie that still haunts the nightmares of MeTV viewers to this day… Trilogy of Terror. This is the horror anthology with the freaky Zuni Doll that terrorizes Karen Black.

The night is going to be so packed with spooky goodies that starting the party an hour early. Svengoolie on Oct. 1 will be showing Trilogy of Terror starting at 7 PM Eastern.

Following the classic horror anthology, tune in for Svengoolie’s biggest adventure yet in Svengoolie Uncrypted. In his first-ever one-hour primetime special, the coolest of the ghouliest escapes his dungeon to journey far and wide, meeting new friends and having new adventures along the way. You won’t want to miss this look at Svengoolie’s career over more than four decades… and especially the crypt-shaking special reveal at the end! Catch Svengoolie Uncrypted Saturday, Oct. 1 at 9 PM Eastern.

Filmed all over Chicagoland, maybe even in…BERWYN! They even hired Mitch O’Connell to do a poster for it (that’s it up there, to the right). They’ll replay this special Sunday at 5 PM eastern.

Following the special, the red tuna of terror swims back to the screen with the Sventoonie season two premiere! Sventoonie and his “blob of the macabre” co-host Blob E. Blob are celebrating the season with a special one-hour premiere episode starting Saturday, Oct. 1 at 10 PM eastern. There will be cool spooky stuff on ME TV all month. You can read about it HERE.

Live Music is back at Taylor Books. There is no cover charge, and shows start at 7:30 PM. Friday it’s Johnathan Sartin. Saturday sees Gary Hays at Charleston’s beloved Bookstore/coffeehouse/art gallery institution.

Please remember that the pandemic is not over yet. Many people who have very good reasons are still wearing masks, and many of us, understandably, are still nervous about being in crowds, masked or not. Be kind and understanding  while you’re out.

If you’re up for going out, here are a few suggestions for the rest of this week, roughly in order.

Since we’re running this feature early this week, there’s bound to be more cool things pop up…
