The Great Cannibal Pumpkin
​Haunts, horrors and things that go bump in the night were only a few of the topics that we covered in Fat City this week, including Jonathan Bender's recollection of serving an abnormal pizza and Charles Ferruzza's many memories of horrific Halloweens in the past, perhaps all caused by his refusal to wear a Halloween costume. With tonight's big haunted holiday on the horizon, Jonathan Bender went into sugar shock researching candy strategies and comparing new flavors of that seasonal classic: candy corn.

And on the subject of candy, what about the closing -- today's the final day, folks -- of the popular Russell Stover Candy Kitchen on 51st Street? That post led to conversation about the original Russell Stover flagship store on Linwood Boulevard and the building's current Frankenstein-like makeover, which also makes us think of this.

There wasn't much reaction in Fat City over the closing of the Coyote Grill -- did anyone really care? -- but Jonathan's post about the Definition of a Dive Bar encouraged comments. On a happier note, the new Ingredient opened downtown -- ready to scrap it up with another new restaurant with a similar concept: Marie Scaglia's new The Mixx in the Power & Light District.

And finally, how about the Top Ten Pumpkin Dishes in town?
