We've already mentioned how Enzian's monthlong schedule of horror movies this year is on point. But this week's Midnight Movie – the first of four playing this month – is a real treat. A movie about teenagers who stay late at the mall to bone at a furniture store only to find that the mall's security robots (not a real thing, '90s babies) have malfunctioned and are out for blood, Chopping Mall is a veritable checklist of '80s horror. Mall? Check. Horny teens? Check. Grody slang? To the max. Don't expect any subtlety – unless you pair the movie with the Eden Bar's themed "Kill Bots Attack!" cocktail, which blends Aperol, elderflower liqueur, mint and champagne. – Thaddeus McCollum
