RALEIGH — The first vampires were eastern Europeans who didn’t get enough vitamins. Haitians who practice Voodoo used pufferfish poison to turn people into zombies and a fungus in colonial America created witches…at least in the eyes of their accusers. For Halloween enthusiasts who also love science, the North Carolina Museum of Natural Sciences and Rocky Top Hospitality will host a three-course meal that will highlight the evolution of the culinary explanations for scary monsters and how we’ve come to view them over the years.
