happy to announce the 
winner of our MetroW- 
een Trumpkin contest 
is Phet Lew of Lorton,

WELCOME TO 
METROWEEN 

MORGAN ROUSSEAU, MANAGING EDITOR 

Halloween is creeping up on us. Sadly, this year 
it falls on a Tuesday, so the debauchery will 
likely unfold over the weekend. And you, dear 
readers, deserve a break from the chaos of the 
news cycle - and the drudgery of the work 
week. Let's look forward to scintillating 
spirits, crisp leaves, creepy costumes 
and of course, candy. Inside you'll 
read about the psychology behind 
our fears, local Halloween festivi¬ 
ties, and whether you should be 
worried about razor blades in 
candy apples. Oh, and we tell you 
which bars make the best Hal¬ 
loween haunts. Read on, if you 
dare, to prepare for the season's 
spookiest holiday. 


Spice up your Halloween decor 
with these pumpkin-carving ideas 


Not your mama’s 
jack-o’-lantern. 

ERIN TIERNAN 

Despite the blue skies 
and 80 -degree days, 
it’s actually fall, which 
means it’s time to pull 
your scarves, leggings 
and boots out of storage 
and start transforming 
your home into Hal¬ 
loween wonderland or 
nightmare — the choice 
is yours. 

The staple for any 
self-respecting Hal¬ 
loween decorator is, of 
course, the jack-o’-lan¬ 
tern. The carved pump¬ 
kin gives some leeway 
for creativity with a clas¬ 
sic touch. 

These days, pumpkin 
carving is somewhat of 
an art of its own, and 
Metro has found some 
of the spookiest, funni¬ 
est and most clever de¬ 
signs to inspire you as 
you set out to carve your 
jack-o’-lantern this year. 
Check out the photos 
for inspiration. 


Metro also has a few 
tips on how to pick the 
perfect pumpkin and 
how to keep it fresh 
once it’s carved. 

How to pick the perfect 
Halloween pumpkin 
The first thing to re¬ 
member is all pumpkins 
aren’t created equal, 
and while size mat¬ 
ters, bigger isn’t always 
better, according to 
homemaking blog The 
Spruce. 

When hunting for the 
perfect squash for carv¬ 
ing your jack-o’-lantern, 
you’ll want to look for 
a nice shape (rounded, 
maybe slightly fiat on 
one side) that will last 
for several days once 
carved. 

Once you’ve made 
your choice, there are a 
few things to remember 
that will help you get it 
home in one piece: 

• Malce sure yom* 
pumpldn is fiiUy 
mature (it will appear 
firm on the outside). 



• Never cany your 
pumpkin by file stem 
— stems snap off easily 
and will leave your 
pumpkin open to in¬ 
fection and rot, which 
will lead to a quick 
demise for your carved 
creation. 

• Inspect your pump¬ 
ldn for bruises or soft 
spots — this means 
your pumpldn is 
already past its prime 
and won’t last you too 
long. 

Keeping your pump¬ 
kin fresh for Hallow¬ 
een and beyond 

Nobody likes a dried- 



CARVING TIPS 


• Keep the pumpkin in a 
cool spot, out of direct 
sunlight. 

• Spray it with an anti- 
transpirant, like Wilt-Pruf. 

• Drape the entire pumpkin 
with a damp towel. 

• Protect it from animals 
that might be tempted to 
take a bite. 

• Don't leave it outdoors if 
there's a threat of frost. 


out, shriveled up jack- 
o’-lantern, so it’s impor¬ 
tant to follow the steps 
listed above to stop it 
from decaying as soon 
as it’s cut and exposed 
to air. 

As with most things, 
the fresher the better, 
but if you need to carve 
your pumpkin a few 
days before displaying 
it, these tips will help it 
live a long, fulfilling life.

‘This Is Real’? 


The group that 
ran Nightmare 
Haunted House 
presents this Red 
Hook-based immer¬ 
sive horror story 
that has you as the 
main character - if 
you survive. 



NIKKI M. MASCALI

You’re in a musty, creepy 
warehouse in Red Hook, 
forced to wear a drab 
jumpsuit and led, blind¬ 
folded and bound, to 
whereabouts unknown. 
You then watch, helpless, 
as a person just like you is 
tortured by a psychopath 
who’s coming for you 
next. What do you do? 
What can you do? 

“You have to get the 
f—k out when it’s time 
— and you’ll know when 
it’s time,” is among your 
scant directions. 

Luckily, this is not 
real, but it is “This Is 
Real,” an immersive- 
theater horror stoiy, and 
you’re its star — if you 
survive, that is. 

“1 honestly have no 
idea what to expect,” 
recent participant Re¬ 
main told Metro when 
we visited the outing for 
Psycho Clan, which host¬ 
ed Nightmare Haunted 
House on the Lower East 
Side for more than a de¬ 
cade. 

“1 wanted to create 
a real horror scenario 
that felt real and was 
able to utilize quiet and 
mood, and people could 
take their time,” creator 


Timothy Haskell said. 
“It stemmed from want¬ 
ing to achieve things in 
horror you can’t do in a 
haunted house.” 

But don’t think this is 
an escape-room scenario. 
“Although you have to es¬ 
cape it, there’s no riddles 
or clues,” Haskell said. 
“It’s ‘Can you survive? Fig¬ 
ure it out.’” 

While Metro watched 
the action via strategic 
peepholes throughout 
“This Is Real,” we won’t 
give too much away other 
than to say that this writer 
is glad she was a voyeur 
instead of a victim. 

Haskell’s favorite part 
is the hiding involved to 
survive. “That’s what 1 
think is really terrifying, 
creating quiet stasis, like 
in horror movies where 
both you in the audience 
and the character are 


waiting for the bad guy to 
discover you, and it takes 
so long,” he said. “To me, 
that’s the thing 1 couldn’t 
do in a haunted house 
that 1 could do here.” 

Romain, who ended 
up one of two survivors, 
liked the hiding, and said 
the scariest part for him 
was “when the psycho¬ 
path was whistling and 
we knew he was coming 
back.” 

While “This Is Real” is 
sold out for the remain¬ 
der of October, it has an 
open-ended run at 153 
Coffey St., which is just a 
few blocks from the NYC 
Ferry’s Red Hook landing 
on the South Brookl3m 
route. 

Tickets range from 
$95-$110, and only eight 
tickets are sold for each 
time slot. For more info,

Why do we like being scared? There are 
psychological reasons why fear is fun 


Steven Schlozman, 
a psychologist and 
horror fanatic, helps 
us understand why 
we love the thrill of 
scary movies and 
haunted houses. 



KRISTIN TOUSSAINT 
Qkristindakota 

kristin.toussaint(ametro.us 


Halloween is all about 
haunted houses and scaiy 
movies — at least, for 
those who enjoy the thrill 
of being frightened. 

Steven Schlozman is 
one of those people, a 
horror fanatic and horror 
novel author. He’s also a 
psychiatrist at the Clay 
Center for Young Healthy 
Minds and an assistant 
professor of psychiatry at 
Harvard Medical School. 

Schlozman said that 
he loves horror because 
he hkes the feeling of 
being scared, but it’s im¬ 


portant to remember that 
not everybody does. 

“As a child psycholo¬ 
gist, I remind people that 
just because you like be¬ 
ing scared, doesn’t mean 
your Idd will hke it or be 
ready for it,” he said. “I’ve 
got two kids, and one 
hkes it and one doesn’t.” 

But for those who do 
hke it, there are some psy¬ 
chological reasons why. 

First, it’s important to 
note that those who enjoy 
scary movies are actuily 
affected by them. It’s not 
that they’re unbothered. 

“People who hke hor¬ 
ror films actuahy get 
afraid, or at least have a 
flight-or-fight response,” 
he said. “The people not 
affected actually don’t en¬ 
joy them.” 

During a scary movie, 
your brain tries to figure 
out what it is that’s fright¬ 
ening and why, and that’s 
an interesting enough ex¬ 
ercise to keep you glued 
to the screen. 



People who like horror movies are actually scared by them, and there’s a reason they enjoy that feeling, pexels 


“Most of what scares 
us are things that look 
famihar but aren’t famil¬ 
iar. It’s the notion of pat¬ 
tern recognition,” Schloz¬ 
man said. “Take the pale 
man in ‘Pan’s Lab 3 ^inth,’ 
where he has eyes in his 
hands and holds them up 
to his head — it’s a ter¬ 
rifying scene, and part 
of what makes it so is 


because there’s a human¬ 
like shape there.” 

“You recognize the 
pattern of ‘human,’ but it 
doesn’t match everything 
else you see,” he contin¬ 
ued. “Our brains are tick¬ 
led by that. We love that 
because, from a very early 
age, we figure out how to 
recognize patterns.” 

People who never go 


through the exercise of 
asking why something 
scares them tend to not be 
that interested in getting 
scared, Schlozman said. 

There are limits to that. 
Because Schlozman is a 
dad, scary movies that in¬ 
volve kids (a common hor¬ 
ror trope, he added) are 
harder for him. They’re 
not as fun, he said, but he 


can at least rmderstand 
the complex feelings 
aroimd why that is. 

Horror movies and 
haunted houses are also 
simulated situations. 
You’re not really being 
chased, but you get to 
think about what you 
would do if you had to 
run. Though we’re hard¬ 
wired to avoid those situa¬ 
tions, Schlozman said, we 
also are hardwired to run 
through scenarios in our 
own head so we can figure 
out how to respond. 

“If you go to a hor¬ 
ror convention or film, 
people who don’t even 
know each other talk 
about films in a way that 
doesn’t happen in other 
genres,” Schlozman said. 
“I think what’s fun about 
horror or fear is it’s a uni¬ 
versal experience. We can 
all relate to it, and at end 
of the day, it’s usually not 
fear that drives stoiy, it’s 
the way that people re¬ 
spond to the fear.”

Parade 


The Village 
Halloween Parade 
is celebrating its 
44th year. This is 
how, when and 
where to watch 
(or join in) the 
festivities in 2017. 


KIMBERLY M. AQUILINA

kimberiy.aquiiina@metro.us 


The Village Halloween 
Parade is a spectacle 
many look forward to 
as soon as the air turns 
crisp (or humid, with cli¬ 
mate change and all that) 
and pumpkin spice lattes 
are cupped between 
the two mitts of basic 
b—ches everywhere. YAS. 

The Village Hallow¬ 
een Parade will be held 
on Oct. 31 at 7 p.m. and 
is expected to run until 
11 p.m. 

All in costume are 
welcome to join in "... 
the nation’s most wildly 


creative public participa¬ 
tory event in the greatest 
city in the world!” if you 
want to participate in the 
parade, line up on Sixth 
Avenue at Canal Street 
between 6:30 p.m. and 
8:30 p.m. 

The grand mar¬ 
shal, Anjelica, is an up- 
and-coming artist. She 
will be riding on a float 
designed by Alexei Ka¬ 
zantsev, the first done in 
a New Orleans style. 

According to the web¬ 
site, the parade runs 
up Sixth Avenue from 
Spring to 16th Street. 
“The streets are most 
crowded between Bleeck- 
er and 14th streets, so 
you might consider get¬ 
ting there early or try 
another place along the 
route ... (or better yet, 
put on a costume and 
join the parade)!” 

The parade will be 
telecast on NYl from 8 to 
9:30 p.m.

Razors in Halloween 
candy: Fact or fiction? 


No one is sure if 
the gruesome Hal¬ 
loween myth has 
ever really hap¬ 
pened. 




SAM NEWHOUSE 
@scnewhouse 

sam.newhouse® metro.us 


Did you hear about it? 
Years ago, in that one 
town, some psycho was 
handing out apples to 
kids on Halloween that 
had blades inside them. 
When they bit the apple, 
they were biting straight 
into a razor. 

Or was it needles in 
Twix bars? Or poisoned 
Pixy Stix? 

As a matter of fact, it 
was none of the above. 

Despite panicking gull¬ 
ible parents for years and 
adding a macabre element 
to the holiday of fear, the 
stories of madmen hand¬ 
ing out needles and razors 
in Halloween candy have 
yet to be proved true. 

It’s unclear where the 
stories originated and why 
they persist — whether 
it’s in the collective un¬ 
conscious or if the stoiy 
keeps getting intention¬ 
ally resurrected by parents 
trying to terrify their fat, 
sugar-addicted kids into 
la 5 dng off the candy. 

Either way, read on for 
the history of this disturb¬ 
ing urban legend. 

One child did die after 
consuming poisonous 
Pixy Stix on Halloween - 
but his own father is the 
one who gave it to him, 
believing the “random 
Halloween killer” theory 
would trick the cops. 

Ronald Clark O’Bryan 
also gave cyanide-laced 
Pixy Stix to his daughter 
and a few other kids on 
Halloween 1974 in Deer 
Park, Texas, hoping that 
spreading the poison 
around would convince 
investigators a maniac 
was responsible. 

But police quickly 
determined no Pixy Stix 
were given out at any 
of the homes where 
O’Bryan’s 8-year-old 
son Timothy had trick- 
or-treated before d 5 dng 
from potassium cyanide 
poisoning around 10:30 
p.m. Halloween night. 
Then they learned his 
father was more than 


$100,000 in debt and had 
just signed the boy up for 
a hefty life-insurance poli¬ 
cy. By chance, none of the 
other kids who got them 
ever ate their poisoned 
Pixy Stix. 

O’Bryan was dubbed 
“the candy man” by the 
media, and as he was ex¬ 
ecuted by lethal injection 
in 1974, demonstrators 
outside the prison tossed 
candy in the air and 
shouted, “Trick or treat!” 
reports said. 

For some reason, nee¬ 
dles- and razor-in-candy 
stories encourage people 
to re-create them and act 
them out. 

After Halloween 2013, 
police in the suburban 
Philadelphia town of Ken- 
nett Square reported that 
needles were found inside 
of Twix bars by four chil¬ 
dren. Police shared photos 
of the dangerous candy as 
the investigation began. 

But shortly afterward, 
an 11-year-old girl admit¬ 
ted putting the needles, 
stolen from her moth¬ 
er’s sewing Idt, into the 
Twix bars after an adult 
showed her a picture of 
needles in a candy bar. 

And just days later 
in South Jersey, a man 
brought more candy bars 
with needles to Glouces¬ 
ter Township police. They 
quickly determined he 
was a “copycat” of the 
Kennett Square incident 
perpetrated by the young 
girl, as he had posted that 
picture on his Facebook 
page and “had made up 
the stoiy and had placed 
the needles in the candy 
bars,” according to police 
statements at the time. 

These stories and im¬ 
ages seem to trigger a 
psychological impulse to 
“re-create” the scene. 

Two other incidents 
feed the fire of the razors- 
in-candy m54:h. 

In 1970, a 5-year-old 
from Detroit died after 
Halloween from a heroin 
overdose. But panic that 
candy with heroin was 
handed out was sup¬ 
pressed after it was re¬ 
vealed the boy accidental¬ 
ly consumed drugs from 
his uncle’s stash. 

The earliest reported 
incident, in 1959, does re¬ 
ally involve a mad doctor 
giving out hundreds of 
unwitting trick-or-treat- 


ers a “trick” instead of 
“treat” in their candy. But 
no one died or suffered 
permanent damage. 

That’s because Califor¬ 
nia dentist Dr. William 
Shine, who clearly had 


a weird sense of humor, 
didn’t give out poison. For 
some reason, he just hand¬

felt the effects, with one 
ending up in the hospital. 



Police shared this grim discovery after a recent Halloween, later found to be an 
elaborate hoax by an ll-year-old girl, provided

The history of Halloween 
includes matchmaking, spirits 
and ancient Celtic traditions 



Halloween is an an¬ 
nual excuse to gorge 
on candy, dress up in 
scandalous costumes or 
turn off our porch lights 
and pretend we aren’t 
home. But how did it all 
begin? 

Halloween is celebrat¬ 
ed every year on Oct. 31. 
It originated with the 
ancient Celtic festival 
Samhain, during which 
bonfires were lit and cos¬ 
tumes donned to warn 
off spirits. All Saints Day 
(Nov. 1) was brought into 
the mix in the eighth 
century by Pope Gregory 
III and included some 
elements of Samhain. 
Samhain became known 
as All Hallow Eve and, 
eventually, Halloween. 

As Halloween 
evolved, it began to lose 
its religious connec¬ 
tions. Rigid Protestant 
beliefs limited the 
celebration in colonial 
New England, according 
to history, and it was 


much more common in 
the southern colonies. 

Customs from Europe 
and the American Indi¬ 
ans blended, creating an 
American version of Hal¬ 
loween. Initially, “play 
parties” were public 
events celebrating the 
harvest where people 
would tell stories of the 
dead, dance and sing. 

As immigrants, 
including millions of 
Irish escaping the Great 
Potato Famine, flooded 
America in the second 
half of the 19th century. 


Halloween became a 
national celebration. 

Many rituals focused 
on the future, according 
to history. Single women 
would take part in ritu¬ 
als that would (hopeful¬ 
ly) result in marriage by 
the following Halloween. 

Women of marrying 
age would also throw 
apple peels over their 
shoulders and decipher 
the meaning by how the 
peels fell. The idea was 
to look for the shape of 
the future husband’s 
initials. kimberly m. aquilina

dubbed Mischief Night 
or Devil’s Night. That’s 
the night of Oct. 30. 

Whttt do people do on 
DeviVs Night? 

Usually the pranks 
pulled on Devil’s Night 
are such classic petty 
crimes that they’re now 
stereot 5 ^es in how we 
talk about Halloween: 
TPing someone’s house 
or lawn and soaping 
their windows on the 
mild end, and tossing 
eggs or rotten tomatoes 
at their front door or 
throwing a flaming bag 
of dog doodie on their 
doorstep on the messier 
and more severe end. 

Wait, is Mischief Night the 
same as DeviVs Night? 
Although historically 
the names were inter¬ 
changeable and both 
referred to the night 
before Oct. 31 or Hal¬ 
loween, the meaning 
of Devil’s Night has be¬ 
come more specific. The 
night of small pranks on 
the part of kids and teen¬ 
agers is marked in ran¬ 
dom areas throughout 
the United States, but in 
Detroit, Michigan, these 
nights saw much more 
serious destruction, par¬ 
ticularly through arson. 

In fact, the arson char¬ 
acteristic of Devil’s Night 
revelries in Detroit was a 
phenomenon prevalent 
from the 1970s all the 
way through to the mid- 
1990s. The destruction 
was so widespread that a 
charity campaign, aptly 
named Angel’s Night, 
was created to counter¬ 


balance it. 

So DeviVs Night dates back 
to the 1970s? 

Actually, it dates back 
even earlier. The earli¬ 
est reference to Devil’s 
Night can be found in 
the 1940s, but Mischief 
Night predates it. Those 
references go back to 
1790, The Guardian re¬ 
ported, and a school play 
involving the fellow of 
St. John’s College, Ox¬ 
ford, “which ended in 
‘an Ode to Fun which 
praises children’s tricks 
on Mischief Night in 
most approving terms.’” 

Experts believe that 
the pranks and gambits 
planned on Mischief 
Night were a part of May 
Eve revels in Britain that 
were transferred to later 
in the year as a product 
of the stunts seeping 
out of the cities and into 
smaller towns with the 
industrial revolution. 

Is Mischief Night illegal? 
Although Mischief Night 
itself is not illegal, many 
of the pranks that kids 
and teens like to cany 
out are. The unofficial 
day enjoys a notable 
presence in New Jersey, 
where some towns have 
adopted a zero tolerance 
policy in an attempt to 
combat the regular acts 
of vandalism. 

According to a Har¬ 
vard Dialect survey look¬ 
ing at how Americans 
speak, the night is also 
referred to around the 
country as Gate Night, 
Cabbage Night, Goosy 
Night and Trick Night.

Demand Soars At NYC Medical Clini 

Can This Medical Technology Possibly Eliminate Oi 

The Advanced Medical Treatment Every Back & Neck Pain Sufferer Needs To Kno 


NYC Pain MD is a medical 
clinic with two locations in 
New York City that has made 
a name for itself by treating 
the worst cases of back or 
neck pain. 

Here is what every back 
and neck pain sufferer who 
has failed to respond to 
other treatments and does 
not want surgery should 
know about one of the best 
treatment options available 
today for severe back and 
neck pain including when, 
why and where you should 
consider this treatment to get 
maximum results. 

If you suffer with back, 
neck or nerve pain, you have 
probably already tried many 
treatments ... especially 
countless pain medications. 

Experienced doctors 
understand that even though 
pain medications such as anti¬ 
inflammatory pain pills are 
part of the recommended early 
treatment plan for back pain... 
they are rarely the answer. 

In most cases they have 
minimal, short term results (if 
any) and have a laundry list 
of potential side effects. Some 
being serious and even life 
threatening. 

Are there any 
better options? 

Thankfully, advancements in 
science and technology come 
extremely fast. And now there 
is very good option to help 
relieve the pain. 

An option that a lot of back 
and neck pain sufferers may 
have never heard of before. 

Before we get into these 


treatments, please understand 
this... 

NYC Pain MD is a REAL 
medical clinic that has treated 
the worst cases of back pain. 
Patients travel from all over to 
be treated at one of their clinics 
for all sorts of joint and muscle 
pain because they want the best 
medical treatments available. 

What you are about to 
discover is a REAL medical 
treatment. Not some miracle 
cure you see on infomercials or 
on the internet. 

Know this fact: There is 
no one treatment that will 
help every case of back pain. 

And we cannot guarantee this 
treatment will work for you. 

But this treatment has already 
helped countless back and neck 
pain sufferers who had given up 
hope. I bet many just like you. 

What is this treatment? It’s 
called... 

Radio frequency Neurotomy 

“Radiofrequncy Neurotomy” 
is often referred to as RE for 
short. Just what is "RE". 

RE is a procedure that 
is based on the concept that 
blocking the nerve supply to the 
painful area may alleviate pain 
and restore function. 

There are many nerves around 
your spine and one of their jobs 
is to sense PAIN. 

Radiofrequency waves are 
delivered to these nerves under 
advanced imaging to “block” 
the nerves and slow down the 
pain 

Two procedures are 
performed. First, a test, 
diagnostic “Block” procedure is 
done to determine if the 
procedure is going to decrease 


pain and improve function. 

If this first “test” procedure is 
successful, the Radio Frequency 
Neurotomy is scheduled and 
performed for longer term 
relief. 

What Results Can 
You Expect? 

Like all real medical 
procedures... results vary for 
individual patients. No good 
and ethical doctor would 
guarantee any exact results for 
any procedure... that’s just not 
how things work and it would 
be less than honest. 

That’s being said, it is not 
uncommon for patients to get 
complete, if not significant 
relief of their pain shortly after 
the treatment. 

How Long Do The 
Results Last? 

This procedure “impaits” the 
nerves pain signals... it does 
not destroy them. Therefore, 
the results are safe but not 
completely permanent. But, 
many patients get relief for 6 
months... 12 months.... 18 
months for some even longer. 
The great news is - another 
procedure can be safely 
preformed for more relief if 
necessary. 

While we cannot claim this 
is a complete “permanent 
cure” ... it can be a godsend 
for so many who were in 
constant pain. 

Really... what would it be 
worth if you could get out of 
pain for long enough so you 
could start enjoying your 
everyday life again? 

Would it be worth it to be 


able to Anally get a good 
nighf s sleep again? 

How about being able to go 
for a simple walk or just do 
your basic daily chores without 
worrying about so much pain? 

Is It Safe? 

Yes. This procedure has 
been done countless times and 
continues to have an excellent 
safety record. It is minimally 
invasive and is not surgical 

Who Should Try 
This Treatment? 

RF should be considered after 
other treatments, such as anti - 
inflammatory pain medication 
and physical therapy do not 
offer good enough results. 

RF has also been found 
effective AFTER back surgery 
when patient ^s still feel pain. 

The pain after a failed back 
surgery can be debilitating for 
some and this procedure may 
be the only thing that helps give 
you relief 

What To Do Next If 
You Are In Pain And 
The “X” Factor 

Here is the “X” factor many 
do not consider that might 
be the difference between 
you getting the best possible 
treatment or not. 

Many experts suggest 
choosing a medical clinic that 
offers all these treatments and 
has the proper, most advanced 
technology all under one roof 
without the need for a surgical 
center or hospital.

Fort Greene’s neighbor¬

into a haunted lair for 
Halloween, from the 
massive clown face loom¬

to the cobweb-strewn

monster dummies and 
murdeiy-red lights. This 


House of Wax 

To enter House of Wax, 
Alamo Drafthouse’s dual 
bar/wax museum, you 
have to walk across a 
rug patterned after “The 
Shining.” If that doesn’t 
get your mind weird, 
wandering the glass cases 
filled with Victorian-era 
wax renderings of busts 


The Slaughtered Lamb 

“In ancient times when 
werewolves roamed the 
land there was an old pub 
called The Slaughtered 
Lamb.” That’s the legend 
behind this West Village 
hang, which is actually 
the bar’s second loca¬ 
tion: You may recall the 
original London location

At House of Wax Bar in the Alamo Drafthouse, wander by glass cases filled

Freddy's Bar 

The South Slope divey- 
tavem has somewhat of 
a spool^ vibe year-round, 
even if it’s just because 
of its resident albino 
frog-fish creature. From 
tonight through Oct. 31, 
the bar is hosting “Drink

a free Halloween dance

Beetle House NYC 

It’s Halloween year-round 
at this Tim Burton-in- 
spired bar and restaurant 
in the East Village. The 
food menu nods to his 
oeuvre, with dishes like a 
steak called the Sweeney 
Beef, or a chocolate cake 
made out of Wonka Bars, 
while the cocktail menu 
of “poisons, potions, and 
ehxirs,” includes concoc¬ 
tions like This is Hallow¬ 
een! (fireball. Pumpkin li¬ 
queur, sour apple pucker, 
apple cider), fr that all’s 
not enough, the decor 


will do you in: skulls on 
the tables, cobweb-strewn 
chandeliers, a tombstone 
that reads “Here lies Be- 
telgeuse” behind the bar, 
and even an actor/host 
dressed as the trickster 
ghost himself 308 E. 6th 
St. 

Sanatorium 

This Alphabet Gity haunt 
conjures an olden times 
hospital, back when 
doctors didn’t know 
medicine too good and 
you were more likely to 
come out much more 
addled than you went in. 
(R.LP. “The Knick,” btw.) 
The menu is designed to 
look like a patient’s case 
file. Gocktails, like the 
“No Insurance” (too soon!) 
of vodka, elder flower, 
grapes. Erne and orange 
ehxir, are served on oper¬ 
ating room trays, while 
shots come in S 5 ninges.

style lamps; classy meets

St. George's Market 



Enjoy the last meal of fir 

st-class passengers on the Titanic 


r-1 


From pubs to Michelin grub 


Taste the finer 
things in life at 
Belfast’s historic 
taverns and up-and- 
coming restaurants. 



EDCONDRAN 

QMetroNewYork 

iettersgmetro.us 


Belfast’s uniquely 
inviting pubs are an 
Irish tradition. Some 
of the finest watering 
holes can be found 
in the Northern Irish 
capital, and that’s 
the way it’s been for 
centuries. 


More recently, 
contemporary Belfast 
has risen to become a 
top culinary destination 
with an array of highly 
rated restaurants. These 
bistros have earned 
Michelin stars that 
would sate any foodie 
who enjoys fresh, high- 
quality meals. 

Tradition at its 
finest 

Start with the Ulster 
Fry, which is a tradi¬ 
tional Irish breakfast 
you’ll never forget. 

Your plate will be filled 
with eggs, potato farl. 


sausages, bacon, black 
pudding and tomato. 
According to James Bell, 
head chef of George’s 
of the Market, the 
secret is cooking every¬ 
thing in one pan. 

Go from George’s 
of the Market to St. 
George’s Market, 
which is the last surviv¬ 
ing Victorian covered 
market in Belfast. You’ll 
be impressed by the 
array of local produce 
— there’s nothing like 
sampling fresh produce 
from the green pastures 
of Ireland — as well as 
fish, meat and crafts. 

The sights and 



sounds of the vibrant 
market are particularly 
memorable, too. 

A meal from history 

It’s been just over a cen¬ 
tury since the Titanic’s 
fateful maiden voyage, 
but the fascination with 
the ship hasn’t abated. 

A popular and 
extraordinary expe¬ 
rience can be had 
when ordering from 
the Titanic Menu at 
Rayanne House. Enjoy 
a recreation of the nine- 
course dinner served 
to first-class passengers 
which includes poached 
salmon with Mousseline 
sauce, garnished with 
cucumber and fresh 
dill, pan seared filet mi- 
gnon topped with foie 
gras and truffle drizzled 
with cognac. 

Riches of the sea 

Shellfish lovers should 
experience the Mourne 
Seafood Bar. Start with 
oysters Japanese Style 
(shredded cucumber, 
pickled ginger, spiced 
soy). If you like shellfish 
with a kick, graduate 
to salt and chili squid, 
then cap the experience 
with grilled lobster. 

Fans of creative and 
modern cuisine should 
stop in to Ox. The 
cod with carrots and 
coral butter is difficult 
to pass up. Blackberry 
compote is a must 
dessert. 


Puhs to rememher 

The Muddlers Club is 
a great place to start to 
experience Belfast’s pub 
scene. 

Like many of the 
city’s fine pubs, the 
Muddlers Club has 
a rich history — it 
was once home to a 
200-year-old secret 
society located in the 
Cathedral Quarter. The 
secret is out these days, 
but you can still score 
a seat at the bar as well 
as a table. The Tempted 
Sweet Cider Point or a 
Galloper’s Golden Ale 
are good places to start. 

The Muddler’s Club 
also offers an eclectic 
menu. The cod in squid 
ink and the trout with 
cauliflower and curry 
are popular choices — 
don’t forget the hand- 
cut fries. 

Stix and Stones 
won’t break your bones 
or your travel budget. 
The large, modern res¬ 
taurant is relatively new 
but serves traditional 
Irish favorites alongside 
contemporary libations. 
The menu is a cut above 
your average pub grub, 
with options like confit 
duck. All of the beef 
served up comes from 
Ireland and is dry aged 
for 28 days, a true treat 
for meat lovers. 

Part of the charm 
of the Duke of York is 
that it is nestled along 
a narrow cobbled alley 
in an historic area. The 


interior is similarly 
lived-in — old dusty 
bottles, an extensive 
whiskey list and the 
bartenders who are on 
another level. 

Ask and they’ll teach 
you how to properly 
pour a Guinness, and of 
course there’s no need 
to instruct anyone how 
to drink down Ireland’s 
famous stout. 

Still a beer town 

Guinness may make its 
home elsewhere in Ire¬ 
land, but if you’re into 
breweries, you won’t be 
disappointed in Belfast. 

Hilden Brewing Co. 
has an array of qual¬ 
ity beers. There’s the 
light and crisp Belfast 
Blonde. Its antithesis is 
the Hilden Irish Stout, 
full-bodied and hearty. 
In between is the Buck’s 
Head, which has a dis¬ 
tinctive hops character 
and a bit of welcome 
bitterness. 

Cider has enjoyed a 
huge revival over recent 
years, and Armagh Ci¬ 
der Company has been 
at the forefront of the 
movement. A number 
of mellow and crisp 
concoctions turn out of 
its barrels, made from 
apples grown on the 
cideiy’s own farm. 

When it comes to 
dining and drinking, 
Belfast offers an unpar¬ 
alleled combination 
of the traditional and 
modern flair.

Urban legends 
of America 


Halloween doesn’t last 
just one day when your 
town is haunted by 
these creatures. 

Fodor^Travel 

Hell’s Gate Bridge 

Visit Oxford, Alabama, 
to shop at Old Mill Mall, 
see its famous 67-mile 
walking track, or literally 
go to hell. It’s just a short 
drive down the Boiling 
Springs Road Bridge. 

Stop in the middle, look 
behind you and you’ll 
see the doorway to Hades 
right through your rear¬ 
view mirror. Back your 
car in and you won’t be 
able to drive out again. 

Direwolves 

If you’re secretly sure 
that you’re a long-lost 
member of House Stark, 
let the Old Gods guide 


I 


you to the Idaho Rocky 
Moimtains. Locals there 
have been reporting veiy 
large wolves and “sav¬ 
agery on domesticated 
animals” for years now. 
Get eaten by them and 
unfortunately that means 
that you’re not a member 
of a fictional royal family 
and you have our fictional 
condolences. 

Ghosts at the 
Roosevelt Hotel 

You’ve missed your 
chance to see Maril5m 
Momoe on the red 
carpet, but you can still 
be haunted by her at the 
Hollywood Roosevelt Ho¬ 
tel in Galifomia. Monroe 
is frequently spotted in 
the full-len^h mirror 
(vain much?) by her pool- 
side suite. And she’s not 
the only celebrity who 
still wants to see and 
be seen in the afterlife. 
Ghostly musicians still 


play their trumpets 
at night and 
Montgomery 
Glift report¬ 
edly recites 
his lines 
in the 
hallway. 

The 
Fouke 

Monster 

If you smell 
something 
horrible while 
in the woods of 
Miller Goimty, 

Arkansas, try to be polite. 
This urban legend isn’t 
just a 7-foot-tall shaggy 
skunk ape, he’s the 
star of the 1971 classic 
“Legend of Boggy Greek” 
(and the four sequels that 
followed). But before you 
ask for an autograph, 
snap a picture first. You’ll 
be the first person to 
catch him on film since 
the 1970s. 




Walk the real-life haunted halls of the Overlook Hotel in Colorado, moviefone 


Jackalopes are said to have 
magical powers. 

JACON MCELWEENIE, FLICKR 


The 
Stanley 
Hotel 

Golo- 

rado’s Stanley Hotel is 
so haunted, it scared 
“The Shining” right 
out of Stephen King. If 
you feel like you might 
have a thriller waiting 
beneath the surface, we 
suggest trying a night’s 
stay. Most guests report 
witnessing paranormal 
activity, and while Jack 
Nicholson won’t be 
there, “The Shining” 


plays 24 hours a day on 
channel 42. 

little People’s 
Tillage 

Fans of architecture and 
the occult will want 
to mark the creepily 
abandoned doll village in 
the woods of Middlebury, 
Gormecticut. The demon¬ 
ic voices that commanded 
their architect to build 
them (then kill himself 
once he was done) are re¬ 
portedly stiU living inside

Derek Stepan prepares for HSG 
return to face off against Rangers 


The former 
Blueshirt was 
traded to Arizona 
Coyotes this sum¬ 
mer after seven 
seasons in 
New York. 



JOE PANTORNO 
@JoePantorno 

Joseph.pantorno(ametro.us 


Arizona Coyotes forward 
Derek Stepan was prob¬ 
ably used to a much 
different environment 
than the one he experi¬ 
enced on Tuesday night 
at the Barclays Center 
when taking on the New 
York Islanders. 

During the first seven 
years of his career as a 
member of the New York 
Rangers, these match¬ 
ups against the Islanders 
were some of the biggest 
nights of the year. During 
an Islanders 5-3 win on 
Tuesday, it was just anoth¬ 
er early-regular season in¬ 
terconference matchup. 

Stepan, New York’s 
first-line center last sea¬ 
son, was traded from the 
Rangers alongside goahe 
Antti Raanta in June to the 
Coyotes for defenseman 
Anthony DeAngelo and a 
first-round draft pick. 

It’s difficult to pick 
out which side got the 



better deal considering 
both teams are struggling 
mightily in 2017-18. The 
Rangers, who made the 
postseason in each of 
Stepan’s seven years, are 
off to a 2-6-2 start. Even 
worse, the Coyotes have 
yet to win a game this 
year, starting 0-8-1. 

While Stepan and 
his Coyotes are on the 
East coast, they’ll stop at 
Madison Square Garden 
to face the Rangers on 
Thursday night (7 p.m. 
puck drop) to provide 
a reunion between the 
27-year-old center and 
his former team. 

“I don’t really know 
what to expect quite 
yet,” Stepan said. “It’s go¬ 
ing to be an emotional 
night for me and it’s cer¬ 
tainly going to be a weird 
game but this is life and 
we’ll see what happens 
when we get there.” 

Stepan appeared in 
515 career games with 
the Rangers, recording 
128 goals and 232 assists 
(360 points). More im¬ 
portantly, he was a glue 
guy for a Rangers team 
that made postseason 
appearances a regular 
occurrence during his 
tenure. He made positive 
things happen while on 
the ice despite not scor¬ 
ing more than 22 goals 
in a single season as he 


ranks ninth in franchise 
history with a plus-109 
career rating 

His hard-nosed style 
of play was a big reason 
why the Rangers inked 
Stepan to a six-year, 
$39 million deal prior 
to the 2015-16 season. 
It was expected to make 
the Minnesota native a 
Rangers lifer. But that 
was before the business 
end of the game inter¬ 
fered. 

“I understand the 


business part of it and 
I signed a six-year deal 
intending to play my 
six years there,” he said. 
“That’s why we decided 
to go with the long¬ 
term deal. I wanted to 
be there. But business is 
business and the Rangers 
decided to try and better 
their organization.” 

Without his pres¬ 
ence on the first line, 
the Rangers offense has 
looked out of sorts de¬ 
spite ranking third in the 


league with 323 shots 
on goal. Their shooting 
percentage of 7.7 ranks 
within the bottom six of 
the entire NHL. 

While times might be 
tough at Madison Square 
Garden, look for Blueshirt 
fans to take a moment 
and recognize Stepan for 
his tenure in New York on 
Thursday night. 

They should know 
that the feeling is mutual. 

“Seven years of my life 
was a big part of it,” Stepan 


told Metro. “There were a 
lot of fun games in front of 
them and I have nothing 
but love for them.”

MANNING VS. THE WORLD 


Qkl 

\m: 


KRISTIAN 

DYER 

OKristianRDyer 


Eli Manning deserves 
better than this, the 
two-time Super Bowl 
MVP under center for 
a 1-6 team that will 
miss their two biggest 
offensive weapons for 
the rest of the season. 

It surely hasn’t been 
the season that the Gi¬ 
ants expected, heading 
into their bye week with 
a single win. The offense 
has struggled. Manning 
has been under constant 
pressure and the team 
might be hard-pressed 
to win a couple more 
games at this going rate. 

But the bulk of the 
pressure is beginning 
to fall on Manning. At 
36 years old, the Giants 
quarterback is undeni¬ 
ably on the backend of 
his career. Now as the 
Giants head toward 
what is likely a top pick 


in next year’s NFL draft, 
the questioning of Man¬ 
ning’s future in New 
York is beginning to rise 
to the surface. 

Do the Giants begin 
planning for life with¬ 
out Manning sooner 
rather than later? And 
do they give rookie Da¬ 
vis Webb, a third-round 
pick in last year’s draft, 
a shot on the field with 
meaningful snaps? 

“Everybody knows 
the record, so I got to 
play better,” Manning 
said on Tuesday. “I’m 
going to keep fighting, 
keep finding ways to get 
completions and see if 
we can move the ball 
and score some more 
points.” 

Gurrently, Manning 
is set for a third straight 
season where his pass¬ 
ing yardage will have 
dropped. Ironically, 
however, his completion 
percentage, as well as 
his passer rating, have 
both seen a slight uptick 
over the year before. 

In fact, his comple¬ 
tion percentage if the 


season were to end 
today, would be the 
highest of his 14-year 
NFL career. So it isn’t 
entirely on Manning. 

He isn’t the one 
blocking or running the 
routes. However, he is 
the one throwing from 
six-feet under or to no¬ 
name wide receivers. 

And without Odell 
Beckham Jr. and Brandon 
Marshall, the Giants are 
facing veiy long odds to 
move the ball let alone 
start winning a couple of 
games. In Sunday’s 24-7 
loss to the Seattle 
Seahawks, they had just 
177 total yards of offense 
and only 14 first downs. 
Those are numbers that 
show that the struggle is 
real here in New York. It 
also shows that it isn’t all 
on Manning. 

“Well, it’s tough,” 
Manning said. “Each 
game is different. I 
don’t know if there’s 
necessarily one thing 
that went wrong. We 
had a little stretch there 
where we had leads and 
lose a couple games in 



Giants QB Eli Manning cetty images 


the last seconds — last 
minutes of games. So, 
you’re right there in 
the stretch,” Manning 
said. “That’s just foot¬ 
ball sometimes. We’re 
just not playing well 
enough, just not doing 
eveiything that we need 
to do to win football 
games and I think obvi¬ 
ously when two weeks 
ago, this last week - 
right there in it in the 
fourth quarter. Just 
didn’t make the plays in 
the fourth quarter.”

New York Yankees man¬ 
ager Joe Girardi is com¬ 
ing off the heels of mak¬ 
ing an improbable run 
to the ALCS where he 
was one win away from 
moving on to the World 
Series. 

Despite the success 
coming in a year in which 
the team wasn’t expected 
to challenge for the post¬ 
season, Girardi’s future 
with the team is uncer¬

million contract expired 
after the Yankees’ Game

Girardi immediately

It looks like the New York Yankees want Joe Girardi back, but does the manager want to return to the Bronx? cEnviMACEs 


be back next season man¬ 
aging the team if the Yan¬ 
kees offer him a new con¬ 
tract, adding that he will 
consult with his family 
before making a decision. 

According to Joe Mc¬ 
Donald of New York 
Sports Day, the organiza¬ 
tion is interested in bring¬ 
ing him back, which 
would mean the ball is in 
his court ... or catcher’s 
mitt in this case. 

The 53-year-old Gir¬ 
ardi has been the Yan¬ 
kees’ skipper for the past 
10 seasons, the fifth-lon- 
gest tenured manager in 
franchise history. 

That’s quite an impres¬ 
sive feat considering the 


stress that comes with 
the position. Holding the 
Yankees’ managerial job 
is one of the most high- 
profile gigs in all of sports 
with every little move 
made ostracized and dis¬ 
sected by a fan base that 
spans the entire globe. 

Even in good times, 
he was susceptible to the 
vitriol from Yankees fans. 
Most recently, he was 
booed at Yankee Stadium 
during roster introduc¬ 
tions prior to Game 3 of 
the AIDS after he failed 
to challenge a contro¬ 
versial call the previous 
game against the Gleve- 
land Indians. 

Since his “no guaran¬ 


tees” comment after the 
ALGS, Girardi and the 
Yankees have fallen off 
the map when it comes 
to addressing his future 
with no updates pro¬ 
vided. 

There has been specu¬ 
lation swirling that the 
Washington Nation¬ 
als might want to take 
a look at Girardi after 
parting ways with Dusty 
Baker. And while that job 
provides plenty of chal¬ 
lenges of its own — like 
tiying to win a playoff 
series for the first time 
in franchise histoiy — a 
team in a smaller market 
might be more appealing 
to Girardi.

Aries Emotional decisions are not likely to 
turn out the way you want. Personal growth, 
general improvement and stabilizing your 
future should be your goals. 

Taurus Finish what you start. Your reputation 
will get a boost if you can turn chaos into or¬ 
der. An intellectual discussion with someone 
very different from you will be enlightening. 

Gemini An emotional incident will leave you 
questioning your next move. Take better care 
of your emotional frame of mind. Finish one 
job before starting another to avoid criticism. 

Cancer Don't feel the need to make an abrupt 
change or impulsive decision. You have plenty 
of time to research and figure out what 
exactly you want to do. 

Leo Avoid people with colds and flus, and 
places likely to have lots of germs. Protect 
your health and stay focused on getting 
plenty of rest and eating properly. 

Virgo Networking functions will lead to new 
opportunities. Adapt to whatever changes 
come your way. Your ability to go with the 
flow will help you accomplish your goals.

Libra Don't say or do something you'll regret. 
Revealing a secret or arguing over something 
trivial will not help you win friends or favors. 
Personal growth should be your goal. 

Scorpio Make your home your haven. A 
creative space that you can tinker in will lead 
to a pursuit that you find inspiring and others 
will be intrigued by. 

Sagittarius Protect against emotional stress. 
Stay on top of unfinished business to ensure 
that it is completed before it's due. Don't let 
temptation turn into a financial loss. 

Capricorn Mesh the past with the present and 
you will be able to build a solid future. Reunit¬ 
ing with old friends or colleagues will open 
doors that can lead to new beginnings. 

Aquarius There is no room for risk. Jumping 
into a deal without doing proper research 
will put you in a difficult position personally 
and financially. 

Pisces Your participation in community 
events or a joint venture will give you a 
chance to show off your skills and offer 
unique solutions, eugenialast
