From 10 a.m to 2 p.m., the Market Common Clarendon (you know the shops in Arlington with Crate and Barrel, the Apple Store, Pottery Barn, etc.). will offer day time trick or treating at local shops (that is a really good idea, especially if you have little ones) and a children’s costume parade. Fun way to spend the early part of your Saturday! Also promised: a petting zoo and face painting. Admission is free, of course.

Don’t toss out the pumpkin seeds when you carve your jack o’lantern. They are rich in zinc, and yummy. Here’s how to roast them (from Relish Magazine).
Dry 2 cups of pumpkin seeds in 300 degree oven for 30 minutes. Toss with 2 tablespoons of melted butter, 3 tablespoons of brown sugar, and 1/2 tsp coarse salt and 1/2 tsp cinnamon, and roast for another 15 minutes at 350 degrees.
