Invitingly halloweeny

Now this is the kind of thing I’d like to have on my lawn…


…except, unfortunately, that I have to miss Halloween this year. Halloween is a Ray Bradbury-esque holiday best celebrated in the midwest, and I’m going to be spending that day in the sunny, cheery, less-than-autumnal climes of Southern California, dispelling ghosties, I hope.

    Make sure to let us know if you have time to share a pint with some of us who live in SoCal.

    Don’t worry, plenty of the ghosts of Hollywoodland there, particularly when you get up into the hills. Kind of more postmodern scary than Halloween scary, but there you go.

  3. Greg Peterson says

    Beware tiny little fear demons, roving packs of disrespectful “Lost Boys” style vampires, and costumes from Ethan Rayne.

    Is this open for public attendance? Where is it held? Is it private invite only?

    Arrrgh! Dratted Beyond Belief website!

    And if any stragglers happen to get waylaid up into the California Central Valley area, let me know.

    It’s invitation only, I’m afraid. I haven’t seen a detailed schedule, so I don’t know how much free time, if any, that I’ll have.

    What a fantastic pumpkin–and, even better, when Halloween rolls around, it’ll be gooey and smelly enough to fulfill its intended purpose: frightening away beggar-kids.

    whoa, right down the freeway from me. fire off an email if you feel like having drinks drunk with. i should have my first homebrew done priming by then, i’ll bring you a bottle!

    Wow, that’s a terrible website. Anyway, do update us if you’ve got free time in SoCal – I’m in LA and would love to join in on any sort of SoCal meetup/drinks.

    I’m sending this to a friend who likes to do an artistic pumpkin every year. So maybe we’ll see one in Toronto – the ‘northern lawn squid’!
