Halloween in NYC

I had a very enjoyable Halloween weekend this year; on Saturday night I took Paul & Caroline, two friends visiting from London, to a Halloween Party at The Delancey. The party was fun; we met up with some other friends there, and it was a pretty good venue that I’d never been to before.

I even managed to come up with a low-effort (and low-cost) but reasonably effective Halloween costume idea, which involved only a 99 cent tube of red body paint, a black marker pen and a $6.99 plastic knife with fake blood inside it (I normally hate feeling obliged to come up with a costume at Halloween).

Then on Sunday after a pleasant day strolling around Brooklyn in the sun watching the kids trick-or-treating, and after Paul & Caroline had left for the airport, I went to see the cello rock band Rasputina play to a pretty much full house at B.B. King Blues Club & Grill in Times Square. My friend and former colleague Zoë Keating is a member of Rasputina, and so after the gig I went back to Brooklyn in the tour bus with the band (dodging the many autograph hunters outside the venue!), helped unload the gear in DUMBO, and then caught up with Zoë over a pint or two.

And on top of all that, the weather was glorious all weekend!
