Fell’s Point, traditionally a hot spot for Halloween, was rather relaxed this year. After the kiddies finished their Trick or Treating at the neighborhood shops and restaurants, some brave souls decided to defy the tornado and flood warnings to patronize the bars.

I joked about it and she responded “Well I guess you make better life decisions than me then! nom nom nom,” but that’s probably not true. I made it back out just after closing to see if anything was going down, but there were more police officers on the street at 2:15am than people in costumes, so I adjourned for the night.
