As we noted on the site last week, ee just had our pre-Halloween costume party with Alex Pardee this past weekend, but we think if you happen to be in Brooklyn on October 31, Dennis McNett's "HALLO-WOLFBAT" installation/performance/exhibition/party would be something you should definitely spend time at. Coming soon to the House of Vans... there will be a 22' Viking ship if you need more reasons to go.
