The Spaghetti Warehouse is a restaurant that combines both Italian and American cooking and has regular as well as new followers, and besides the food they are creative with the events that they host, and since it is set in an old historic building the events are even more fun and interesting.
Now that Halloween is approaching they are throwing some pretty spooky ghosts tours, but beware these are not for the faint of heart! They are called the ghosts walks which is not to be mistaken with hunting for ghosts, however you get to listen to ghost tales and various urban legends (are they real or not?) as you walk around the historical district downtown.
The tour starts and ends at Market Square Park at 301 Milam and it will proceed to the ghost of La Carafe restaurant, then there will be the crypt, the famous double dangle of 1838 and of course the ghosts (yes there is more than one) of the Spaghetti Warehouse.
The price for the tour is $15 which includes a booklet called “Short Guide to the Paranormal” by Sandra Lord,and the tours are capped at 40 per walk so it is highly suggested to buy the tickets before hand since they fill fast. The tours run during the week from Thursday until Sunday and they go on throughout the holidays so if you miss the ones for Halloween (which is the best time) you can still take them in November and December.
And after the tour (if you have the stomach for it) you can get something to eat at the Spaghetti Warehouse like some of their appetizers like the toasted ravioli which come with four cheeses and pesto for $5.99 or the hearty minestrone soup for $4.19, and if you wish to taste some of their desserts go with the 12 layer chocolate cake with vanilla ice cream for $6.29 or the Warehouse tiramisu (just the right thing to pick you up) for $4.99 as you look around and hope that no ghosts will steal your food.
The Spaghetti Warehouse restaurant is located downtown at 901 Commerce Street and its regular hours of operations are Sunday through Thursday from 11 a.m. to 10 p.m. and Friday and Saturday from 11 a.m. to 11 p.m.
