Election Day is near, and this week is an intense one. Let’s take a break from doomscrolling and seek comfort in how Austin restaurant staffers dressed up for Halloween over the weekend, shall we? Spoiler alert: there are plenty of masks.
Above, staffers from far north Austin restaurant Oasthouse Kitchen + Bar went the Bob’s Burgers route and dressed up as the Belcher children.
For perfect COVID-19 mitigation purposes, the team over at Tex-Mex restaurant Eldorado Cafe donned giant inflatable unicorn costumes.
The staff over at Fredericksburg winery Kalasi Cellars adorably dressed up as purple grapes.
Highland brewpub the Brewtorium went for a haunted Oktoberfest theme, plus a cameo by Mad Max’s Immortan Joe.
The team behind Round Rock bakery Heaven’s Bistro went as tigers.
The team of East Austin brewery Zilker Brewing Company chose to dress up as each other.
Mueller cafe Halcyon included Harley Quinn circa Suicide Squad.
And then there were plenty of eclectic group staff Halloween photos. Chi’lantro’s gamut ran from a giant dinosaur, someone holding precious cargo Baby Yoda, painter Bob Ross, Kentucky Fried Chicken’s Colonel Sanders, to a taco.
Among bagel shop Nervous Charlie’s staff costumes: Gene and his talking can from Wet Hot American Summer, a tourist, and Shredder from Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles.
The Home Slice South Congress staff’s Halloween array ranged from a Ghostbuster to Harry Potter to Freddy Kruger to the infamous banana taped to a wall artwork.
Staffers at the Crestview location of pizzeria Little Deli included Chewbacca with a cherished Han Solo photo and Link.
The staff of Asian smokehouse Loro featured Guy Fieri, Spider-Man, Mario and Princess Peach, Garth of Wayne’s World, a ballet dancer, among others.
Lucy’s Fried Chicken South Congress’s staff included a really good Freddy Krueger.
