Pokémon events are popping up like Zubats around town, and while Mount Tabor is a lovely stroll, let's be honest: Games that test your hand-eye-coordination, spatial awareness and tactical skill go best with beer.
Good luck finding one locally: Hollywood Vintage might get some for Halloween, but not before then.
Via the internet, a Squirtle costume runs about $20, if you can fit your head into a child's hat. Tattoo sheets are 99 cents, and the Ash Ketchum Hat retails for $1.99. There are also Pikachu balloons and a 6-foot-high wall mural. Have at it.
