Of feds, fright night and fall fashion
Welcome to Ghost City Magazines
There is one crucial element that goes into each and every October edition of Post City Magazines, and that’s the Ghost City masthead. We’re big on Halloween. We have a charity costume contest, we feast on candy and junk food for the day, and we do a funny Halloween-style masthead. It’s kind of our thing.
And, come to think of it, this city is Halloween crazy. As evidence, we may have lost a Zombie Walk for a year, but we also boast a Zombie Prom, Zombie Wrestling and a zombie pub crawl to name just a few.
In addition to our spooky masthead, we also put a couple of Halloween-flavoured shops to the fright test in Too Close To Call, and we highlight some tasty confectionary creations from some of the city’s best, sweets-loving chefs.
In non-Halloween related coverage, our news section features insight into the federal election with an opinion piece by political pundit Warren Kinsella who sounds off on the Toronto factor that could decide who moves into 24 Sussex Dr. this month.
Our fashion columnist, Jeanne Beker, kicks off our lifestyle coverage with a massive feature on the best fall fashion finds north of Bloor Street. Our very own NoBlo district.
In addition, columnist Rebecca Eckler checks out a new way for women to meet other women, dubbed GirlCrew, and Monika Schnarre tries the new yoga for jocks workout, Joga.
Just in time for Thanksgiving, resident chef Grant van Gameren kicks off our food section by sampling a selection of prepared turkey dinners from the city’s best gourmet food shops.
In arts, we look at one of the hottest musicians south of the border, Leon Bridges, who is playing a big show at the Danforth Music Hall, and much more.
Remember, the best fake blood includes corn syrup and food colouring. And it’s delicious. Happy Halloween.
