Rosas and Sanudo are also providing a special menu for a Halloween Drag Show at Baby’s (2147 N. Talbott St., 317-931-1343), which will be served in a small-plates format. Baby’s is spacing out three all-ages performances on that day at noon, 2:30 p.m., and 5 p.m., so you can bring the kids out for a little fun with snacks and still get home in plenty of time to get costumes on. Masks—the medical kind—will be required at all shows.
