Come Die With Me @ Randy's Wing Bar, Hackney Wick. 29 October

Beware the #TerriFries and Wing Reapers as purveyors of awesome fried chicken things, Randy's Wing Bar, and World of Zing have collaborated on a pun-tastic Halloween event and menu.  Head down on 29 October for lively party vibes and some scarily hot dishes made using a host of rare and fiery chillies from World of Zing.  Of course, if you can't take the heat Randy's will also be offering their standard menu.  But what's the fun in that?! www.randyswingbar.co.uk
