All weekend long, noodle joint Ninja Ramen will be "dressed up" as Houston's most famous cocktail haunt, Anvil Bar & Refuge. It's the cheeky ramen bar's way of getting into the Halloween spirit, complete with a temporary outdoor sign sporting Anvil's black and white logo (a poorly drawn one, but deliberately so).

In a promotional video posted to Facebook last night, Ninja Ramen owner Christopher Huang and a giant stuffed bear pose as various members of the Anvil bartending staff, so it's safe to assume that Anvil-related costumes are encouraged at the weekend-long Halloween party.

Come dressed as your favorite Anvil bartender to Ninja Ramen's weekend-long Halloween party.

Ninja Ramen will be offering drink specials Saturday and Sunday from 6 p.m. until close (3 a.m. Saturday and 2 a.m. Sunday) on drinks you'd typically see at Anvil rather than the ramen dive: The Brave (renamed "The Grave" at Ninja Ramen), Pliny's Tonic and the Pousse Cafe, a colorful, multilayered cocktail that's based on the classic pousse-café.

Dinner service at Ninja Ramen runs all night long, in case you indulge in one too many of those Graves. We suggest the spicy abu-ramen, a rarely seen ramen specimen in Houston, and perfect for perking you up so you can keep the Halloween party going.
