Muppets, pirates, and Hunter S. Thompson: Oh, my! On Saturday we sent our photographer to The Fifty/50, where Halloween tomfoolery included costume and pumpkin-carving contests, plus drink specials in mildly disturbing, only-on-Halloween shades. 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. (Seriously, what is that? A hedgehog?)
