Kimpton’s Helix Lounge Hosts Halloween Pumpkin Carving Contest

Washington, DC (October 15, 2013) Kimpton’s Helix Lounge invites you to show off your pumpkin carving skills at the lounge’s 9th Annual Pumpkin Carving Contest, taking place on Wednesday, October 30, 2013.

[Hey! I want to let you know about a tasting event at NatGeo on Tuesday, December 3, 2019. Tickets are 20% off with my promo code BZK20.]

The lounge will set up carving stations on the outdoor patio and will provide 30 pre-scooped pumpkins as well as safe carving tool kits. Beginning at 6:00 pm, pumpkins will be distributed to patrons. Pumpkins are distributed on a first-come, first-serve basis, so guests should be sure to arrive early.

Participants will have until 8:00 p.m. to carve the pumpkins, at which point the winners will be announced.

This year, Helix celebrates living like a local with the “Most Local-Themed Pumpkin” (best politician or a D.C. landmark) which will receive a $50 certificate to Helix Lounge, and the winner of “Most Ghoulish Gourd” (best overall design) will receive a one-night weekend stay at Kimpton’s Hotel Helix. The winning pumpkins will be displayed at the lounge until after Halloween.

While you are there,  sip on a Spiced Pumpkin Martini, featuring Stoli vanilla vodka, pumpkin liqueur and cream, garnished with a cinnamon stick for $7 or a  local Starr Hill Pumpkin Porter for $6. Happy Hour prices will be offered for the duration of the event until 9:00 p.m., including $5 cosmos, $3 Yuengling and Miller Lite drafts and $2 PBR cans.
