Detroit Moxie's Weekend Roundup

Trick or treat! Even though I don’t embrace the dressing-up part of Halloween as an adult, I do love this holiday. Roasted pumpkin seeds, cute little ones in adorable costumes and candy—what’s not to love?

My favorite costumes as a kid were a Smurf—blue face and all—and a pink pig with a huge papier-mâché head. I even went to a Halloween costume party at the ice rink at Lakeside Mall in the pig costume. I don’t recommend ice-skating with an oversized head. Wait, that sounds weird.

My dad loved passing out candy to the kiddies—and scaring them—but the one thing I’ll always remember is that we had to have a few boxes of Better Made Potato Chips to give to the trick-or-treaters.

Enjoy your weekend and be sure to be extra nice to the ghosts and goblins!
