Hi Heather!

Just wanted to pass along our flyer for Halloween this weekend, if you’re interested in posting on your site.  We are having a costume contest throughout the night, judging happens at midnight with a $100 cash prize for best costume!  This year we went with  a video game theme. Customers are not required to dress for the theme but our staff does so it kind of all goes together.  Anyway, I attached some pics of the installation we did on Monday so you could see what I’m referring to. Pretty fun stuff!

Very nice, indeed!

Just wanted to send you our flyer and brief info for our Halloween Party this Sunday, October 31st, in case you’d like to post it on your site.  We are going for a clown theme this year (kinda spinning off last year’s freak show) and decorations should be up beginning Friday.  The costume contest will be held Sunday, first prize being awarded $100 and runner up wins $50.  Judging will take place at midnight.  Drunkenness will take place all night long!  If you are in the hood, stop on by.  Otherwise, Happy Halloween!

Right back at ya!

This lovely lass (dressed up as a liver fluke) was an honorable mention at last year’s District Dog’s Halloween Costume Contest! I mention this because:

  1. When I inquired her person she assured me that she plans to enter again this year!
  2. I have been asked by the folks at District Dog to be a judge again this year!

Yours truly loves furkids. Now pair that with my favorite day of the year: Halloween. Suffice it to say I am VERY excited!
