While we’re in Columbus this weekend, I won’t be able to avoid thinking about what I’m missing: Halloween in Athens.
I was in Athens for an embarrassingly large number of Halloweens, starting in the years when the street takeover was still a takeover and later, when it was a city-sanctioned street party.
I came up with a bunch of good costumes, but this one had to be my favorite:
Jerry Garcia was a pretty obvious choice for me, especially in 1993, when Mrs. Crappy took this picture of me and B’s little sister. It was a popular costume, too — I got to hang out with everyone from Elvis to a team of Asian Captain Kirks.
This leads me to a question: What’s the best Halloween costume you’ve ever come up with?
