Plan to Tour Humboldt's Haunted Houses

Well, it's another one of those years when Halloween is partially ruined by the dumb ol' Gregorian calendar/five day work week. The most debaucherous of holidays falls on a dumb ol' Thursday which means either you piss your boss off with a lackluster Friday or you get all ghouled up to celebrate October 26. The world needs a-fixin'.

Thankfully Humboldt's haunted house proprietors are an understanding lot. Local spook seekers have ample opportunities both this weekend and on actual Halloween to wet themselves:

Geez, are you and your sick buddies holding some sort of creep out house that the Lowdown doesn't know about? Well, why didn't you submit it? You're blowing it!

Oh, Wednesday stuff in your Lowdown below.
