Where's Waldo: The Best of Craigslist Halloween Missed Connections

Posted By on Tue, Nov 3, 2009 at 3:30 PM

The best part of Halloween is not the actual merry-making, but observing the aftermath of a night of booze-soaked costumed revelry. On Nov. 1, the streets of San Francisco were strewn with cardboard scythes and axes, as if an epic battle had taken place and quickly dispersed. (And in a way, it had.) There were some who never made it home, completing their morning walk of shame dressed as slightly deflated sexy bumblebees. The guy we spotted pushing an IV and bag of fluids down the street may have been in costume, or he may have been an escapee from nearby General Hospital. And then there were those who, despite their fervent efforts, eluded the arms of another. Their disappointment is our afternoon entertainment, in the form of Craigslist Missed Connections.

This plea seeks to reunite not only two people but person and costume.

A "creepy" mime. That narrows things down.

In the realm of "sexy (fill-in-the-blank)" costumes, this one proves unique.

If we spin a "gimmel," do we win the pot?

The object of this man's affection did not stop in the name of love, and thus he turned to the Internet.

And, finally, what is going on with Waldo?

And then:

Just like a man to be everywhere, until it comes time to pay child support. Then he's impossible to find.

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
