Halloween on West Club Blvd 2008

Friday night, I celebrated yet another Halloween on West Club Boulevard, in Durham, and saw loads of cute kids, bunches of batmen and scores of spidermen. It's always clear that many of the kids, like the cute Scoobydoo in the photo, are only just beginning to realize what Halloween is all about.
We had tons of candy to hand out. This photo didn't even capture the entire batch.

My Hippest Friend made a huge pot of delicious jambalaya.

He also baked white chocolate macadamia nut cookies, which were also excellent. He even offered to bake us chocolate chip cookies, but we were stuffed. Are you getting the idea of why my calendar is booked on Halloween, years in advance?

My Hippest Friend even carved a pumpkin with a not-so-subliminal message for the parents of the trick'r'treaters.

With all that candy we had, you'd think we would have had plenty for everyone, but we had 692 kids before we ran out of stuff to give them. I contributed a tally counter, so we could be sure to have an accurate count. We ended up handing out Kashi breakfast bars and tangerines in the end, as you can see in the video. We had to turn away probably 50 more kids before the night was over. Obviously, it makes a huge difference when Halloween is not on a school night.
