Halloween certainly won’t look the same in 2020 even though we’re all wearing masks already. The Trust20 team has collected some events across the country that piqued our curiosity and hopefully that will inspire yours.  Don’t forget - if your plans for this upcoming Halloweekend include dining out don’t forget to be a 5-Star Diner

We’re first adventuring to Nashville, TN to visit Trust20 Certified restaurant, Deacon’s New South - and these folks take spirits seriously. They’re particularly serious about their bourbon! Deacon’s is preparing to host its first Whiskey University class “Bourbon 201” on Monday, October 26th. This event will pair an instructional overview of the classic spirit with a flight of eight samples.

Please note that they have reduced the class size and will physically space out seating to allow for social distancing. The instructors and staff are also required to wear masks throughout the evening. Learn more and secure a ticket HERE.


If you’re looking for something sweet, look no further than the kitchen of The Little Farmhouse Café - another Trust20 Certified restaurant. This family-owned and locally sourced Farm-to-Table restaurant is featuring a divine Pumpkin Spice Cheesecake from local partner Heavenly Cakes. This scrumptious dessert is no trick - and all treat! They are open for breakfast, lunch and so to be dinner. You can also place an order online for delivery or curbside pickup. 

Next, let’s head up to The Windy City! Chicago’s Fulton Market Kitchen is hosting “A Night at the Factory” on October 30 and 31. The event features a four course meal and two unique cocktails that were inspired by the work of Andy Warhol and his studio known as The Factory. Throughout the evening, guests will screen films from Warhol’s archive. Costumes are not required for this socially distanced event but they are highly recommended. Learn more and choose between an early seating or late seating ticket HERE Early Bird pricing ends soon.
