I got my arty party on Halloween night at the Moti Hasson Gallery where artist Jillian McDonald was launching her zombie-riffic interdisciplinary exhibit "Waking The Dead."

Not only was Craig a volunteer for Right Rides, an organization dedicated to ensuring that women get home safely at night, but he also worked for the West Harlem Action Network Against Poverty, a homeless aid organization.

 I know I've geeked out about these boys in the past, but for serious, I can't imagine a better time to monster mash with Bryan Scary and the Shredding Tears than at the Scaryville Circus Halloween party in Brooklyn!  Acts will also include a burlesque show, sword juggling, graffiti writers, fire twirling, and much more! Admission is only 10 bones, which also comes with an open bar sponsored by Bluepoint Brewery and Sweet Leaf Tea.
