Weekend Reading


Very excited for Halloween this weekend!!! We are not expecting many any trick or treaters since we live at the top of a high-rise in the very un-suburban part of SD. However, it seems like India Street, just a block over from us, will be having a whole trick or treating event that will stretch throughout the neighborhood. Also, on the more adult side of Halloween, there will be an eight block-wide street party in downtown. That being said it’s kind of a weird age for Halloween we don’t have kids and we aren’t in college. Full disclosure – after a bit of people watching, my lover and I may retire for a night of Halloween movies (Hocus Pocus, Nightmare Before Christmas and The Lost Boys) and have an enjoyable mixture of cocktails & candy.

Saturday, however, is a different story…given our proximity to Mexico, Día de Muertos is a very popular holiday. Therefore, we will head over to Old Town San Diego to celebrate! Let’s just say I have come a long way – go back fifteen or so years and I would have been dressing up as my favorite saint, walking down the St. Rose aisle in some kind of holy parade on what I then called All Saints Day – HA!

super creepy candle– watch it melt down!
