Buffalo’s historic Central Terminal is one of the spookiest spots in Western New York. And this weekend, Beyond Ghosts will bring its popular ghost tours back to the East Side landmark.

Tours run Friday and Saturday nights from now until November 1 starting at 10 p.m. To pre-register, log onto BeyondGhosts.com.
It’s Hallowine Weekend along the Niagara Wine Trail. All the wineries will be open for fall-themed tastings. You may even find yourself in the middle of a murder mystery. Visit NiagaraWineTrail.org to plan your trip.
Italian and Italians at heart can embrace their heritage in a humorous way at this one man show. Blood Type: Ragu runs now through Sunday at Shea’s Smith Theater. It explores the joys of growing up in a big Sicilian family, in the post-World War II era. Find times and ticket information at sheas.org.
