Halloween 2013 like 2002?

Postby oranger » Wed Oct 30, 2013 12:02 pm

Freakfest was the 26th. The last time Halloween (the 31st) was on a Thursday was 2002.

This is what happened-

Anticipating Halloween festivities to peak Oct. 31, 40 police officers patrolled State Street Saturday night, 110 fewer than Thursday night. Verveer said the difference proved fatal in the police’s inability to contain the crowd.

“Thursday night went off with a hitch — relatively no problems,” Verveer said. “Saturday night was a truly unfortunate experience, with the problem stemming from a small number of troublemakers, fueled in part by alcohol.”

wasn't the 2002 riot set off by the cops stepping in to stop some, as the wall street journal and al jazeera termed it, hot girl-on-girl action going on in a store front window?

or that could have been 1936. i am not sure.

I don't know about 2002 (I'd aged out of the Halloween crowd by then) but in the early days (late 70s-early 80s etc) Halloween always featured a tastefully done strip show in the streetside windows of that now-gone hotel at the SE corner of Francis and State. The girls would book the rooms approximately above Husnu's and perform in the windows starting about 10 pm. These were classy dancers, not just random people taking off their clothes. I don't know if it was pro bono or someone was paying them.
