Fiascoween III

Fiascoween is approaching rapidly and you still don't have a costume? Shame on you. Get into that box of crap that you never did unpack when you moved in two years ago, and find something to wear. If that doesn't help, or you have taken that box to donate, go buy it back from Classy Rack. For an extensive collection of Fiascoween gear, you can always go drop some coin at Value Village and get yourself a snazzy outfit.

I mentioned before that if you have some crazy, elaborate face decoration planned, be sure there is a way we can identify you so you can get in and enjoy all the adult beverage choices because this is a 21+ event.

Speaking of the event, we will be meeting at The Swamp, Saturday Oct 31st, at 7:00p.m. and having some fun there before getting saddled up for a ride to the Fiascoween III: Super Secret Party. There will be a band, wine by the glass, draft beer, snacks, an outdoor beer garden (as well as indoor, you pansies) and a costume contest. I don't know what sort of prize I will be able to give away for best costume, but I will come up with something.

The FBC received a mass mail out and got this about an event going on before Fiascoween, along with a flyer (I did not make it):
It is time to rock the November ballot with Spokane's first ever Trick or Vote!

The Washington Bus and Eastern Washington Progress are throwing the only Halloween rally in town. We will gather in our costumes at 3pm to do some training, and then go into Spokane neighborhoods to turn out votes (and get candy in the process)! We will offer people some info and will encourage Approving Ref. 71 and Rejecting 1033.

Here are
the details:

What: A FREE Halloween canvass for equal rights and a better Washington! Youth and family friendly, all-ages event. Everyone is welcome to participate.
When: 3-7pm on Saturday, October 31st, 2009
Where: 17 W. Main Ave. in the Community Building Warehouse (Green building with ROW Adventure Center in the window. Right next door to Merlyn's.) Some free parking is available on E. Main across Division.

Doorbelling is one of the most effective ways to reach voters on important issues, AND it's fun! You get to explore a neighborhood, meet interesting people, and get more mileage out of your costume! Volunteers will go out in pairs, but larger groups are also possible if you want to Trick or Vote with your whole posse.

When people are done with canvassing (routes will be provided on clip boards) we will have a volunteer appreciation social after people get back to the warehouse. Then you'll be out the door with plenty of time to enjoy other holiday functions.
