Haunted Garden Returns, in Highly Concentrated Form

The battle's done, and it kind of won, so the Haunted Garden sounds its victory cheer. The Garden (In our house it's the "mushroom house with the itsy bitsy spider") has received the go ahead from a county judge to operate on two nights - the 25th and 26th of October.

Have their efforts to suppress the Haunted Garden backfired on The Community? Sure, they may have ultimately gotten the number of nights down from the planned five, but now the event has been been widely publicized through multiple newspaper articles, local TV news, popular drive time radio programs and national morning TV shows. So now we're taking all the original visitors, adding all the ones made aware of the Garden through this whole process, and putting them on the street over the course of just two nights. Should be fun.

As a nearby neighbor, I was okay with the original plan, but to be honest I'm starting to get a bit ambivalent about the whole thing. It will be interesting to see how this plays out.

Closet Buffy fan?

I'm not. I just know the reference because my wife watched the show. Honest.

Wow, on the first comment.

I also live close to Donna Kerr's house and don't understand why this was escalated to a freaking lawsuit. I'm no fan of the Seven Oaks-Evanswood Citizens association but couldn't they have just requested to Donna Kerr to limit the event to two nights in the first place? They could close the street and treat it as a block party as plenty of other neighbors have done. Perhaps Ms. Kerr could have offered this as well? Glad we're done with this mess.

I thought the reason she spread it out over multiple weekends in the first place was to keep traffic lower. But I guess the neighbors would prefer a lot more traffic for a shorter period?

I live about 3 or 4 houses away from this place. Has never been an issue. The party held this weekend except for a few more cars parked on the street, was basically quite and over by 10 PM. Whats the big deal? A true "tempest in a teapot".
Get a life.

Why is it that those who shout "nanny state" the loudest are the first ones to run crying to their nanny state Supreme Court whenever we try to take away their guns?

Out of context...

Anyone here run the trails next to Sligo Creek and have some older lady stare you down while passing her? I think she was trying to put a hex on me tonight.

That was me and I did put a hex on you. Are you a frog yet?

Nope. *rrribbit* I feel fine.

Other Halloween topics

Zombie Walk this Saturday. Starts at Jackies and goes down Fenton to AFI.

If you watch TCM they have been doing Vincent Price movies all month on Thursdays. Growing up the Vincent Price series of Edgar Allen Poe films were a favorite. I was always a fan and thought the Edward ScissorHands mad scientist role was a fitting tribute. I have been thinking that there must be a 7 degrees of separation potential for Vincent Price. His career ranged from Bette Davis and Peter Lorre to Michael Jackson and Johnny Depp.

Another favorite Halloween watch - The 70's Night Stalker series with Darrin McGavin. Pretty good series considering the limited special effects of the era.

If you haven't seen it go to AFI for Nosferatu - the grandaddy of all horror films. That film is still one of the scariest films after 91 years.

Here's your Friday News N Notes everyone:

Urban Butcher has their permits in order and is currently under construction. WaPo did a great write-up that notes it's "tentatively scheduled to open in early December." I'd be shocked if they can successfully build out the space from scratch that quick, but guess we'll see. It sounds like it'll be another great addition to dTSS.

BurgerFi will also be opening in December, per DTSS facebook.

The old AT&T space at Thayer & Georgia is currently under construction w/a new facade and interior work. Appears to be a small lounge/restaurant of some sort.

Kaldi's (which is great, if you haven't tried it. Kaldi's+Kefa+Zed's = beyond awesome coffeehouse choices. If DTSS can't support this many coffeehouses then hopefully it's one of the THREE(!!) Starbucks in town that goes out of business) also made WaPo the other day. The article doesn't really focus on it, but they have AMAZING French desserts, too.
