Of feds, fright night and fall fash­ion

Welcome to Ghost City Mag­a­zines

Richmond Hill Post - - NEWS - by Ron John­son

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.
