Burgatory + ScareHouse + ‘Josh & Gab Show’ = Perfection
Some of our favorites teamed up for a promo video you’ll want to watch.
It’s four awesome things that go well together! Crumbled Oreos, vanilla ice cream, housemade custard and chocolate vodka? They mix pretty well, too. But we were talking about the video.
In a lineup of some of our favorite stuff, The ScareHouse once again has teamed up with Burgatory to create the limited-run ScareHouse shake, to benefit the Mario Lemieux Foundation — and this year, there’s a killer theme song, courtesy of “The Josh & Gab Show.”
The video proof of this awesome collaboration is above. The shake, available with or without the aforementioned chocolate vodka (but always topped with a gummy worm), will be served through Nov. 2 at all Burgatory locations. Proceeds benefit the Lemieux Foundation’s Make Room for Kids program.
Grab one today — but please, don’t try to smuggle any into the actual ScareHouse. We shudder to think what the bunny would do if you get custard in his fur.

#Flicks: ‘The Chair’ films now playing on the big screen
“Not Cool” and “Hollidaysburg,” the two finished features to emerge from the Starz filmmaking competition “The Chair,” are now playing on local screens.
The former film, directed by YouTube star Shane Dawson, didn’t wow critics — but, thanks to Dawson’s substantial online fanbase, did make a major splash in the digital-download sphere, peaking at No. 5 on the iTunes movie charts. Anna Martemucci’s “Hollidaysburg,” meanwhile, is garnering noticeably better reviews than “Not Cool.”
Both films open tonight at Waterworks Cinemas, but you’ve only got one shot per day to catch them; “Hollidaysburg” will be screened nightly at 7:30 p.m., and “Not Cool” will follow at 9:25.
