Happy THIRD-iversary, you ol' S&P!

That's right, loyal S&P-brains!

Time to get up and dance...

 We've got the band ready...

 Dr. Henry and Fritz are digging up the keg...

... all because the Skull & Pumpkin is celebrating its

It's a bit difficult to believe, but this little homely house of Hallowe'en horrors has had its doors open to you fine, fine Autumn People since June 21st, 2009.

I can't believe I have stuck with it -- I never follow through with anything!

Yet here we all are. Even the zombies are full of life today...

We will be open all day and night, enjoying the S&P goodness.

In honor of a new year of publy pride, I have changed up a few images and links along the sides of the main page. Click them, see where you end up.

I have also added a few special tracks to the S&P Jukebox -- first, Side One of a great Disney/Decca LP from 1949 -- Bing Crosby once again narrating Washington Irving's classic ghost story, The Legend of Sleepy Hollow!

It's a unique version -- not just a recording of the audio bed from the animated film, so it's worth a listen even for those of you who are very familiar with the film.

Then I added a medley of haunting organ music from the greatest dark ride of all time, The Haunted Mansion!

Dancing, carousing, spinning tales, talking Hallowe'en and all things spooky -- these are the heart and soul of the Skull & Pumpkin.

I thank each of you -- now over one hundred thousand unique visits! -- who have helped create this old pub, and helped to keep it alive!

So party on, my little monsters...

And as always, raise them high now, and join me in our traditional toast --


Happy Anniversary, you ol' S&P.

And happy birthday Betsy!

Another year of Hallowe'en love to come...
