My Halloween Avoidance Strategy

So Halloween is tomorrow, and I could very well be at home during prime candy distribution hours. That leaves me with three options:
  1. Stock up on candy
  2. Hide
  3. Flee
Since I have no cow-orkers to pawn the leftovers on and I've already been eating like crap and not getting any exercise, #1 is right out. And #2 is pretty lame. So I think I'll go with #3 -- flee. But to where?

I haven't been to Great Falls in a while, and it's supposed to hit close to 70 tomorrow, so I'm thinking an afternoon jaunt to Great Falls Park (possibly starting in on my usual entry point, Riverbend Park.) Then maybe hit the Old Brogue on the way back. Or just head over into Arlington, for... Wednesday night.

As for tonight, I'll be heading over to Restaurant Three shortly for a congratulatory layoff dinner with some old friends, possibly following up to see Alice Smith at Iota, or perhaps the regular Psychotronic movie night at Dr. Dremo's (catch it there while you can, dontcha know).

Well, I'd say come to Milwaukee, and I'll drag you out and feed you more beer than any rational human can comprehend, but I've got some sort of weird cold/flu thing going on, and I'd really need to be in top shape if I'm going to embark on a tourist-destroying bender.

So, in light of that nonsense, I recommend you go out and terrorize people. Be scary. Just, don't get shot or pepper-sprayed.

Come to the Arlington Cinema & Drafthouse to see "Shaun of the Dead" with me and some pals! It's only $1!

I get the impression you are never at a loss of fun, unique, and interesting things to do, so I know you'll find a place to flee to. Have fun whatever you do!!
