Weekend Photos: Black Wednesday @ Lottie’s

Some folks saved the turkey for Thursday; others got a leg up, so to speak, with Black Wednesday specials at Lottie’s Pub in Bucktown: $5 turkey legs and domestic drafts. Our photographer stopped by to see the gobble-fest in all its glory.

Weekend Photos: Halloween at The Fifty/50

Muppets, pirates, and Hunter S. Thompson: Oh, my!

To the creatively costumed: We salute you. To the pumpkin artists, a word of advice: Next year, maybe wait to dip into the Witches’ Brew until after the carving contest is over…
