BOO! It's our Halloween Cheat Sheet.

2014-10-27

Hello, hey there, and how d'ya do? You guys need to know what's up on Halloween, and I've got the goods. Howev-ah, I have to type quickly because there's a two week old infant in my apartment who insists on being fed every 1-3 hours. And I have not yet mastered the art of boob slinging + typing at the same time. So without further ado, click here for our picks. You can also just run a search for October 31st on our calendar, but I don't want you to sprain a finger or anything. That might interfere with unwrapping all of those Snickers minis. Have a fun + safe Halloween in the city with your family! May it include at least one generous neighbor doling out full size candy bars. Bless those people. Really.
