Chocolate Crazy

Chocolate Crazy

Chances are you’re spending today with the kiddies, walking them around from house to house, collecting treats.

And now it’s dinnertime, and you’ve cooked nothing.

Don’t worry. Stir Crazy will pitch in.

Today [[October 31]], anytime after 4 p.m., kids 10 and under eat free.

The email I got doesn’t even mention anything about “with an adult entree.” I’m sure you can’t just sent the kids in costume for a free meal, but still. It’s a good deal.

Menchies Melts

Menchies Melts

If you don’t have a Menchies Frozen Yogurt around you, you don’t know how adorable the store‘s logo is.

And you also don’t have an excuse to wear a swirl cap.

But, if you do have a Menchies, head there today [[October 31]] wearing a Menchies swirl cap [[that you can download from here]], you’ll get a free 12 oz. frozen yogurt. You can try thrilla-nilla and count-chochula swirl [[which you better try because that took me about ten minutes to spell correctly]] or you can try pumpkin. Or probably anything you’d rather instead.

Black Jack

Black Jack

I’m celebrating Halloween in Foxwoods, where I’ll be playing Bingo in the morning, Let It Ride in the afternoon, and having a Black Jack at night.

That last one’s a food. And today [[October 31]], it’s free [[which sounds like a great price after a day of gambling]].

Tonight, from 6 p.m. to midnight, Taco Bell is giving out free Black Jack tacos to celebrate the holiday. In case you’ve never seen one, it’s Taco Bell’s only taco with a black hard shell, which makes it totally festive.

Michael’s Loves Minors

Michael’s Loves Minors

If your kids are up early and ready to go out and celebrate Halloween already, take them over to Michael’s.

Today [[October 31]] between 10 a.m. and noon, thanks to The Knack Kids [[Michael’s stuff for the kiddies]], children will get a free trick-or-treat pail, a coloring activity, Crayola Model Magic Fusion, a Make-It Take-It Halloween frame, a balloon, and candy.

The picture in this post, it appears to be pencil toppers. The pic was taken straight from The Knack Kids’ site, but there seems to be no talk about pencil toppers. If you do get one, and it bores your kids, ask me for my address.

Halloween Toys Not Just For Boys

Halloween Toys Not Just For Boys

People are scared of their neighbors. You won’t really know which of your streetmates are apprehensive about your lifestyle until you see who skips your house on Halloween. That’s when you realize that having one too many guy friends come over makes you look like the town bicycle.

If you’ve got a neighborhood full of sketchy people, you’re probably looking for non-street peddling Halloween activities for the kiddies.

Look no further than Sears. Today [[October 31]] bring your kids down to Sears and they’ll get a free Mattel toy [[as long as the kiddies are in costume]].

You can also click that link and get a $5/$20 coupon, good on toys. You might wanna leave the kiddies at home if you try to use that. But it’s good until tomorrow [[November 1]], so score so candy for half off and get some Christmas shopping out of the way. The kids will have such a sugar coma, they won’t even know you’re gone.

Boo-Rito

Boo-Rito

I don’t understand Halloween for adults. At least, I don’t understand why childless adults dress up on Halloween. For kids, it’s a great candy filled holiday, and I see nothing wrong with that. But an adult woman dressed up as a slutty [[fill in the blank here]] … or a guy as the Burger King … no thanks.

However, if you dress up every year, and you’re looking for a reason to rewear that burrito costume collecting dust in your closet, lucky for you, I found a reason.

Today [[October 31]] if you head to Chipotle dressed as a burrito — or boo-rito, or anything in foil — you’ll get a free burrito, taco, bowl, or salad. I love Chipotle, but not enough to dress up as food. You, on the other hand, have to make your own decisions.
