LOWER EAST SIDE—Send the good people at Gargyle a photo of yourself in your Halloween costume, and you could win a $50 gift certificate. Specifics: E-mail jpgs and an explanation of your costume to email@example.com by 5pm on Monday, November 3rd. They'll post all the pictures online, so don't send anything you wouldn't want your mother to see. [Racked Inbox]

COBBLE HILL—If you love dogs wearing costumes, then visit Miro's Run in DiMattina Park on Sunday between 12pm and 3pm for the neighborhood's annual Howl-o-ween festival, which raises money for the dog run (Brooklyn's first) with a $10 suggestion donation. Festivities include cider, donuts, and prizes. If you don't love dogs wearing costumes, then we're sorry, we really don't know how to help you. [Cobble Hill Blog]
FORT GREENE—This isn't Halloween-related, but there's no Brooklyn Flea this weekend because of the marathon. [Brownstoner]

Trovata, Band of Outsiders, Marc by Marc, more.... Just ask someone who works there and they'll explain what will be on sale. 40% off." [RackedWire]
