SPOOKY SEASON IN THE DISTRICT. My team has been looking forward to our combined October // November issue all year, a deep dive into all things fall. From cool weather style tips courtesy of Knot Standard Sales Director Emily Blumberh to 150+ haunted adventures, autumn escapes, weekend getaways and more, we’ve built our readers a stacked guide to fall in the District. And with our spooky issue comes We Are The Weirdos, Mister: District Fray’s Cult Classic Halloween Party on Halloween night at Dock 5. I’ve been dreaming of throwing this party for years, a nod to some of the most iconic films and music from the ‘80s and ‘90s — all with a spooky theme. Our cover subjects, The Legwarmers frontwoman Cathy DiToro and indie artist Cat Janice, will headline the party with a full cover band. We’re collaborating with Disco Mary Collective to create Instaworthy cult classic-inspired installations, plus a spooky vendor market, tarot circle, costume contest and interactive activations, pop-up performances and photo ops from “Beetlejuice,” “The Craft,” “Little Shop of Horrors” and other campy favorites. Register at bit.ly/wearetheweirdosmister, and in the meantime, we hope you enjoy our autumn rundown in the pages that follow. From the creepy to the cozy, we’ve got you covered.
