In addition to countless children trick-or-treating, revelers of all ages will be hosting and attending parties this week to celebrate Halloween, a holiday that gives everyone an opportunity to get creative with costumes and cuisine.
Years ago, Scott Gold was asked to be a guest chef for a Halloween themed dinner party. Taken from this week's edition of Louisiana Eats!, Scott explains what dishes he prepared for his hair-raising meal and rhapsodizes about the joys of playing with one's food.
Bring Your Own is a nomadic storytelling series that takes place in living rooms, backyards and other intimate spaces within the community. Each month, seven storytellers have 7 minutes to respond to a theme.
This story was told on October 21st, 2012, at Jackie Sumell’s house in the 7th Ward. The theme of the evening was “Are You Afraid of the Dark”, and Matt "Smoothie" Sargeant told this winning story providing life advice on Halloween Eve.
