2. Grand Haven has announced its new social district will open on Friday.

The social district will stretch down Washington Avenue. Inside the six blocks of the social district, you can walk around with an alcoholic beverage. It will have to be an authorized cup with the business logo or name, and the social district logo.

Some of the businesses already participating include Odd Side Ales, Grand Armory Brewing, 12 Corners Vineyards Tasting Room, and the Kirby House. More venues are expected to receive approval from the state of Michigan soon.

3. Papa John's is carving up a delicious Halloween-themed pizza. Jack-O-Lantern pies are back at the pizza chain.

From now until Halloween, pizza lovres can order a pie made baked to look like everyone's favorite spooky decoration.

Papa John's bakes up a large thin crust pizza shaped like a pumpkin, loaded with cheese, and uses pepperoni to outline the sides, mouth, and eyes before adding black olives to each of its triangular eyes.

Jack-O-Lantern Pies are now available for $11 each.

Turkey Talk-Line Taste Kitchen will debut on the app displaying different recipes, cooking, methods, and ingredients to help spice up the feast.

If you'd like to keep things low-tech this holiday, the hotline is 1-800-BUTTERBALL, which opens November 1.

5. It's a day when sweet and savory join forces in the best kind of way. Today is National Chicken and Waffles Day.
