Man! it's Halloween time again. I've had all year and I still can't come up with a costume. I think Halloween costumes should be scary, not tributes to your favorite movie, cartoon or TV characters (unless they're scary).

For example, two words that should never go together are "sexy" and "zombie.

But as is typical in the land of the Hons, David's marches to the beat of its own quirky drum. Take last Tuesday when bar manager Bayne Joyes was pouring drafts and shooting the breeze with customers.

If you decide to ride this month's Bike Party (5 p.m. Friday at the Baltimore Streetcar Museum, 1901 Falls Road), there are a few items you shouldn't forget to bring. Volunteer coordinator Adam Hull has been helping organize the ride almost since the start and suggests the following: • A spare tire tube, levers and a small wrench. "We ask people to bring those in case you have a flat tire," says Hull. "Even if you're not able to repair your own tire, someone can hopefully help - but they need to have the tools to do it. " If your mechanical problem is too big to fix during the ride, there are usually volunteer Zipcar vehicles following along in back to pick up stranded riders and their bikes.
