#TGIF! And just like that, it’s the weekend. Please hold your applause till the end of this dispatch. One thing we’re definitely clapping about: Free-range turkeys! Open Minded Organics, the Bridgehampton produce company, is currently taking orders for its birds (pictured above, at owner David Falkowski’s father’s farm in Cobleskill, N.Y.) Pre-order is a must, as supplies are limited; order here. If you can’t wait until Thanksgiving for some organic meat, Falkowski, also known as “Mushroom Dave,” says he’s got grass-fed beef at his Butter Lane farm stand

If only we could celebrate Halloween in a post-modern feminist way….

Here’s good news, for those who like their spooky with a side of intellectual: The Neo-Political Cowgirls and the Amagansett Food Institute will present “Hysteria,” a “beautiful, immersive terror” at the Amagansett Farmers Market. We can attest that the location is indeed a scary place: We once paid $16 there for a baguette and a bunch of scallions (under its former ownership, of course). For this weekend’s “Hysteria” show, organizers will bring groups of 10 on 25-minute journeys to “experience causes, cures and curses of the painful psychological state of hysteria.” We hope the hot cider afterward is spiked. Details here.

On tap for Halloween

  • Indian Wells Tavern in Amagansett is throwing a Halloween party tonight, beginning at 10 p.m. We hear there will be complimentary “Jell-o” shots, which should make the costumes look more impressive as the night goes on.
  • On a more family-friendly note (i.e., no “Jell-o” shots), the Animal Rescue Fund of the Hamptons is hosting its annual Halloween Pawty for kids and dogs on Saturday, 11 a.m. to 2 p.m.
  • Southampton Publick House in Southampton is celebrating Halloween with its annual costume party  (we’re going as “Pumpkin Ale”) on Saturday, beginning at 10 p.m.
  • Zigmund’s bar in Bridgehampton is also hosting a “spooktacular” Halloween costume party on Saturday, starting at 9 p.m. Zigmund’s itself is going as popular 90s bar Wild Rose
  • Over in Montauk, Solé East is going as the “Ghost of Summer” hosting a combination Halloween/season ender party on Saturday, beginning at 8 p.m…
  • Southampton gets into the spirit with its 26th Annual Rag A Muffin Parade & Pumpkin Trail on Sunday, beginning at 1:00 p.m. No clown costumes, please. (That’s our suggestion, not theirs.) Clowns terrify, well, everyone…
  • Rowdy Hall restaurant in East Hampton will host its 17th annual “Rowdyween” party ($30 admission) on Monday, from 8 p.m. Come in costume. Pretend it’s not a school night…
