Thursday's parting shot

Reader-submitted photo from Sixth Street tonight... between Avenue A and First Avenue in case you want to do a rescue. (I already have 12 of each in my apt, otherwise...)

Carving out some quality time for Halloween at the Parkside

Photos by Stacie Joy 

The Parkside Lounge was the scene of a recent bring-your-own-pumpkin (BYOP) carving competition ... and as EVG contributor Stacie Joy witnessed, it was a spirited affair here at the bar on Houston and Attorney ... with competitors taking the proceedings quite seriously...
... we don't actually who took home the trophies... but they all look pretty good...

Friday's parting shot

Photo by Stacie Joy 

Exit9 owner Charles Branstool has (a very limited supply of) upstate-grown pumpkins to give away to participants in the shop's pumpkin carving contest this month. It's all taking place on Instagram... and you can read all about how to take part right here

Exit9 is at 51 Avenue A between Third Street and Fourth Street if you want to stop by for any other reason.

Creepy discarded pumpkin creeping people out on 9th Street

And it has been here all day just off Avenue A...
(And I don't know when/if Doc Holliday's will reopen.) 

Thanks to Vinny & O for the top photo and Steven for the nighttime pic.

A chance to toss your pumpkins tomorrow, but go ahead and enjoy today

There's a Pumpkins Smash tomorrow from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. in the community garden on East 11th Street — entrance west of 420 E. 11th St. between Avenue A and First Avenue.

Per the signage:

Bring Pumpkins, Jack-o-Lanterns, and Gourds for a Smashing Good Time! You smash them — and NYC Compost Project will turn them into compost for City parks and green spaces. Join us for refreshments, raffles, and more!

Seems a little early to have a pumpkin smash — the day after Halloween? It would be like holding the MulchFest on Dec. 26. But we understand if you want to get this Halloween crap out of your apartment to start getting the place ready for Easter.

Pumpkins — not just for Halloween anymore

They also make for decorative additions to street lights, like seen here on Second Avenue and East Ninth Street … photo via John Coakley.

Neighborhood Pumpkin Watch group reports first casualty of season

Members of a newly created Neighborhood Pumpkin Watch group send along what they believe is the first smashed pumpkin of the young Halloween season ... here on Second Avenue near East Third Street ...

A group rep we spoke with said that they have a suspect a short distance away ... we don't want to name names, but the business rhymes with DareDurger.

Group reps also said that they will be holding protests at any establishment selling seasonal pumpkin craft ale, pumpkin-shaped hand soap and pumpkin-flavored bacon.

The urban pumpkin patch

I've noticed that a lot of people have been taking this photo on St. Mark's Place...and I can see why...
