By The Berkshire Eagle
FRIDAY, OCT. 11
Mr. Doubtfire returns to Shire Breu-Hous for an evening of live covers, 9 p.m. to midnight, 63 Flansburg Ave., Dalton.
Editor's Pick: Get in the Halloween spirit by enjoying some spirits in a corn maze. Whitney's Farm Market & Garden Center is hosting a haunted corn maze with local wine, beer, and spirit tasting stations hidden among the corn. Once you've found all of the stations and the maze exit you'll have the chance to warm up and enjoy a conversation by a cozy campfire and enjoy a cash bar to try out all of your favorites you found in the stalks. Tickets are $30 a person and must be purchased in advance at Whitney's, 1775 South State Road, Cheshire, or over the phone at 413-442-4749.
