Tonight Vertical Wine Bistro in Pasadena hosts an evening of zombies, fleshy bites and creepy cocktails to celebrate the Season 1 DVD release of AMC’s The Walking Dead. (Vertical owner Gale Anne Hurd is executive producer of the show.) Members of the cast and crew will be on hand and guests have the chance to win a copy of the Season 1 DVD. For $35, guests get two zombie-inspired cocktails and munchies throughout the night. 7:30-9:30 pm.
