BOOOOooooo....toooooo......youuuuuuuuuuu..... if you didn't make it to the Big Race on Nob Hill with many people joining in with costumes, merriment, and questions like, "What are you?"
What brings people out on Halloween? Curiosity? Of course, you can't imagine what the guy next door will come up with next! Contests? Of course! YOU might be the one who wins the Grand Prize! What a story to tell your children. Liquor? Of course! It releases your inhibitions. Behind the facade of the mask who would know that ordinarily you wouldn't have the courage to approach that gorgeous blonde. As an Ice Breaker? Of course! That cute little bee is about to buzz my way. She might be my long-sought honey. Just for fun? Of course! Life and job tedium can get to you. How wonderful to change from a clerk to Anne Hathaway or a plumber to Christian Bale!
It was all there on Nob Hill on Halloween. A trip to the Nob Hill Bar and Grill was fun. The Central Avenue Race was was fast paced. The apple pie at Flying Star was even better than the Washington BYOB party. Mark your 2009 plans for Halloween. It will still be the best place in town.
