Almost Halloween in the Soda City - Photos

October 27, 2012

It's not quite Halloween in Columbia, South Carolina but it's Friday night and we're living in Zombie Town Soda City style. Join me on my day off from New Brookland as I wander through town on a special night. As a photographer and human being I find Halloween to be pretty rad. I hope you do as well.

This is my buddy Claude and he has played in a bazillion metal bands and tonight he led the zombie walk through Columbia's Vista district. He is also the only dude who has said to me while bartending, "Sean, I need both the baseball bats." Claude is on my team. And yes, I gave them to him.

I believe these were some frat dudes on the horseshoe "rehearsing" a cheesy song they could impress the sorostitutes with. Score.

This is my good friend Blake and he left town for some comic book oriented job in the Big Apple. He's here for the weekend to catch the South Carolina Gamecocks play the Tennessee Volunteers. Blake has a photo album on Facebook titled "My sick need to feel important by getting photos with celebrities" and there are 387 photos in it. And now I think people want a picture with him.

New Brookland house engineer Magic John doesn't have much to do tonight. DJs are easy.

Several times in the distant past, I have let Daniel into shows because he was dressed like a dinosaur - in August. Good to see him back on stage and not stage diving.

This is when my fellow bartender Herbert got pissed off for having to wait for a chick to get out of the men's restroom. He was also having a stressful night and it was kind of comical. Actually it was damn funny. Don't be a Herb.

 

Happy Halloween Herbert.

Europe.
