Smart Bets: Asheville Zombie Walk

It's not every day that you come across an event that is both family-friendly and "dripping with fake blood and shambling." Well, the day (Saturday, Oct. 22) has arrived, and the event is the annual Asheville Zombie Walk. And this year — on top of the gore, the groans, the cravings for brains — the walk takes place at the Zombie-perfect Biltmore Square Mall. Meet at Cinebarre at 6 p.m. Walking (free) begins at dusk and the party (movies for $3, kids activities, dance acts, a costume contest, bands: Envy of the Wicked, Ritual, 23 Skidoo, Opus Grey and Zombie Queen) continues into the night.
