    Wondering if there are any cool gay parties / events going on for Halloween in LA / OC area for that weekend? (Besides the West Hollywood Carnival, which has turned into a commercialized event for a straight audience).

    Yeah, the WeHo Carnivale isn't what it used to be.
    I think I'll stay in on Halloween, and watch scary movies on TV. icon_biggrin.gif

    You can do Weho a day or two before Halloween. It's still crazy, but not as crazy. I usually skip it. Too many people for me.

    $300? That's crazy. You need to do what we do. Keep the lights out and if any kid still comes to the door, have circus peanuts on hand to give as the treat. Hand out some of those and word will get around and the brats won't come back next year.

    i make little halloween bags of candy for each kid. The part of the development that i live in is know to give the 'good stuff'....big candy bars, entire bags of candy, matchbox cars, etc.

    Mine had gummy road kill and body parts, chocolate, like-a-sticks, candy bracelets, glow in the dark bugs, etc.


    Well...at least I know I gave to the neighbor kids last Friday at the Scavenger Haunt...it is Halloween where we get a bunch more people outside the development...which I don't mind...but wish I wish that I did not run out. I'm all alone so I can't go out and get more.

    There was actually a little girl wearing a hooters costume.... icon_eek.gif

    I really don't mind it....it is part of being involved in the community. I know my neighbors....they know me.... icon_smile.gif


    When my best friend was in the hospital...they were there for me...they went to the hospital many times for support. One time a group of them went to the hospital to visit him and they sang the Yellow Submarine to him...even though he was unconscious at the time...it was the first karaoke song our neighbors sung as a group when we first got together and my best friend started it off. After he past away...they had an amazing Irish wake for him...they are very special.... They sent me this insanely big beautiful flower arrangement...I have never seen anything like it before.

    It is nice when there is a sense of community. In my town for Halloween people come from all over the LA area because they expect more expensive candy. While I understand it, I really think communities should be communities and take care of their own. It shouldn't be just about how expensive the candy is.

    I honestly think people that go through that much trouble are insane for some candy, that will go on sale the following day, are insane- but your statement about not wanting communities to mix is just- er- stupid. If you really want to keep outsiders away from your precious community and 'expensive' candy you should install barbed wire electric fences and have hound dogs patrolling the outlying area.

    How can you honestly tell who's an outsider and who isn't?

    Multiculturalism FTW.

    I would not say it is stupid. I am comparing to old days when kids would go to neighbors and visit as part of trick or treating. There was a sense of community. Now it's getting packed in cars and vans. It is obvious there are outsiders from the traffic - locals would not need to drive. It is also a small community and I know who the locals are.
