At cocktail hour on Halloween redozdachs and I went out to 440 Castro to watch the military parade on Castro Street. If police uniforms counted, most everyone was in costume… there were battalions of them! Otherwise, no people in the streets, at least while we were out.
We hung out until past 7 when David, Harlan, and blurkerbear arrived in their 3 Little Schul Girls frocks:
I’ve posted comments elsewhere agreeing with The City’s decision to close down the neighborhood this year. I understand the grumbles, but instead of 10 shooting victims like last year, this year there were only 6 arrests for drunkenness.
Now lets work together to have a party next Halloween — it’ll be a Friday night, after all!
