Ghost-infested hotel or ghost-infested tour?




Halloween is my favorite holiday of the year but I'm at least a decade past the age that's socially acceptable for trick and/or treating. Still, I feel the obligation to celebrate and always wind up doing something weird so I can have something to write about here on the blog.

Carving pumpkins and handing out candy doesn't cut it. A few years ago I held a mock internet trial for two pumpkins. Readers rendered a guilty verdict and voted to have them set on fire as punishment. Always eager to please, I obliged (see above).

Another year I went in search of Henry Weinhard's grave and somehow got freaked out in broad daylight while wandering through Riverview Cemetery. Last year I wound up at a party in semi-rural Oregon where the hosts decided to carve trees instead of pumpkins...and set them on fire with gasoline. Click on the link to see the photos.

If the party's happening this year I'm going back if they'll have me. I'm also thinking of doing something earlier in the month. Two ideas spring to mind. The first would be to go on the Portland Haunted Tour. The second would be to spend a night at the White Eagle, the reportedly ghost-infested McMenamins bar/hotel in north Portland.

Before I make any reservations let me get your input first. Which would you rather read about here?
