  string(3595) ""Strength is the capacity to break a chocolate bar into four pieces with your bare hands — and then eat just one of the pieces." — Judith Viorst

Although I'm supposed to think about ghosts and goblins during Halloween, I always think about the teeth-rotting candy I collected door-to-door until my parents forced me to stop. I pouted fiercely. Granted, I was 15, but I'm short, so I thought I could avoid discovery.

As an adult, I boycott Halloween, opting for swilling wine with friends rather than facilitating the fattening of today's youth. My fun comes in pairing up different kinds of chocolate — gourmet, of course — with various wines. This turns Halloween into an adult holiday, and I can wallow in sugar highs like the little ones.

The Aztecs of Central America discovered the chocolate delicacy as we know it by mixing their native cocoa bean with water to create a highly coveted beverage. Today, these intensely bitter beans are fermented, roasted and ground up to produce what we call cocoa. Add some fatty components and sugar, and you have chocolate.

The types of chocolate vary according to the percentage of cocoa solids they contain. White chocolate contains no cocoa solids, so many countries don't consider it chocolate at all. Frankly, I don't either. The waxy taste never seemed worth the calories. Milk chocolate, defined by 10 percent to 20 percent cocoa solids and more than 12 percent milk solids, is the sweetest of them, followed by semisweet, which has 40 percent to 62 percent cocoa. Bittersweet can have anywhere from 60 percent to 90 percent and can really make your mouth dry out at those higher levels. I lean toward the bittersweet end of the spectrum. Whether that's a reflection of my temperament, I don't know, but I love the dark stuff.

But to pair or not to pair chocolate with wine? I've determined, over the years, that red wine matches better with chocolate, but I hadn't figured in whites much. In a recent experiment, we tried Scharffen Berger milk, Scharffen Berger 62 percent semisweet, Ghirardelli citrus-flavored 60 percent dark, Scharffen Berger 70 percent and Scharffen Berger 82 percent bittersweet chocolates with a variety of wines, from riesling to zinfandel.

Surprisingly, the milk and the orange semisweet enhanced the fruitiness of the dry riesling, completely changing the flavor profile of the wine. A lively, ripe yet dry merlot from Paso Robles also drank well with the same chocolates. Oregon pinot noir loved the bittersweet treats, as did the California cabernet sauvignon. But the best wine for all of these chocolates? A white dessert moscato from St. Supery. Bar none. The sugars matched each other perfectly, allowing all the flavors to show their strength.

The wines that didn't fly were disappointing, since they are some of my favorites: syrah, zinfandel, petite sirah and brut sparkling wine. But keep in mind that food and wine pairings often depend on the actual wine itself and not on a varietal. Use this as a guide for your Halloween activities and have fun.

Recommended Wines

•Wild Horse 2004 Merlot Paso Robles (California) SW = 2. $20. Roses on the nose, with a perfumey black cherry, chocolate flavor. Goes down way too easily. ****

•2003 Duo Cabernet Sauvignon Merlot Maipo Valley (Chile) SW = 1. $14. Deep, dark roasted cherries, with a musty, muddy smell. Also has a bit of the green pepper essence, which prevents me from loving it. ** 1/2

Sweetness (SW) rating is out of 10, 10 being pure sugar. * (star) rating is out of 5, 5 being wine nirvana."

I'll celebrate this past weekend, on Wednesday and Thursday and this coming weekend. And any woman that did what I did in a man's world and faced the  challenges I did must be awe-inspiring. But I never want any special treatment. I love meeting the masses, being with the people. And I did create the whole new industry for fashion.

It's that time. Halloween tchotchkes pop out of the woodwork, costumed kids beg for candy at your door. Just for fun  this year, plop down on a lawn chair with your plastic pumpkin filled with candy, grab a glass of wine and harang the SpongeBob and Monsters Inc.  characters passing in  the street.

But what to drink with Halloween candy? I can't say this was an easy question to answer, but it was a queasy one. Mixing  various candy together with several types of wine in one stomach proved not a job for the diabetic or the weak at heart, but a  necessary one to warn readers of the do's and don'ts.

Since there are no traditional guidelines when pairing candy with wine, we started with nothing but ideas and opinions. I didn't think any white wine would complement  our selection of candy since white wines have too much acidity to match well with sweeter items. Sauvignon Blanc proved too acidic, but a slightly sweeter, less acidic Chenin Blanc surprised us by matching  perfectly with cherry and watermelon Jolly Rancher chews.

You might ask what "matching perfectly" means. When wine and food complement each other, it's like a great couple. No flavor     characteristic gets overshadowed by either party, and imperfections are balanced out. For instance, drinking a bold,  tannic Cabernet with a salt-seasoned steak creates a wonderful flavor combo, since the salt suppresses the bitterness in the wine, allowing the fruit to  show through.

The fruit in the Chardonnay,  traditionally a difficult wine to match with food, shimmied up affectionately to the candy corns.

When we delved into the red wines, that's when the fun began. Reese's, with its chocolate and peanut butter coupling, proved the most difficult candy to mate, but the Oregon Pinot Noir came close, as well  as the Argentinean Malbec. Mounds, the coconut item for the tasting, loved  everything in the lighter red category. The fruity, California Merlot and the French Beaujolais tasted really spectacular with the dark chocolate coating and soft, sweet coconut. Cabernet Sauvignon also liked the dark chocolate of the Mounds.

Snickers was tough, because of the funky peanut addition. Salty peanuts are really best with beer, but add chocolate and "nougat" (whatever the hell that is), and you've got an alcoholic beverage dilemma. The best pairing, which still kinda sucked, was the California Cabernet. Even though the salt in the peanuts helped tame the tannins, the chocolate threw it off. If your candy of choice is Snickers, stick with sparkling wine.

So, if you want to be super-sophisticated in front of the little costumed tots, drink a sparkling wine or Champagne with the treats. The tart sweetness will balance out pretty much any candy — or any dish for that matter — making friends with all  parties. The other adults will be wildly  jealous as you savor every bite of your caramel-filled Milky Way.

Recommended Wines:
2001 Callaway Chenin   Blanc ($8)  Great value in a slightly sweeter, pineapple aroma wine. Chenin Blanc is a relatively unknown grape  rising in popularity because it complements Asian and Indian foods so well. And it's great with Jolly Ranchers.

2001 Georges DuBoeuf Regnie ($14)  Bigger than most Beaujolais and boasting more alcohol than most. Light on the tongue with plenty of cherry fruit and fun. This wine was a Mounds pleaser.

2000 Barnwood Cabernet Sauvignon ($18)  The only way to describe this beautifully luscious wine  is sexy. Big cherry flavor with a few tannins to bite back. It loves dark chocolate. Amazing value.??

BRIDE OF FRANKENSTEIN, GERMANY:
It doesn't dampen my enthusiasm. It's a fun time of year for everybody to act a little silly and eat lots of candy. I think it will alleviate people's stress to dress up and have a good time. People want to take their mind off of all the terrible things that are happening. I'm one of the first spooky ladies in movies. There's not too many of us. There's me, Elvira, Vampira. But I'm an original. I'm the perfect mix of beauty and horror.

COCHISE, NORTH DAKOTA:
Yeah. It's too bad. It's too tragic. How are you going to celebrate right this minute? There's just not much enthusiasm to have a big time. But of course I sometimes see that side of life anyway. They call me a crape hanger. New business opens and I say, 'How long is it going to last?' But maybe by Christmas it will be different. I'm Cochise. I'm a great warrior. I'm the Indian chief that wears glasses. I'm farsighted so I have to wear them to shoot the arrows. u??

Sure, it looked cool in the plastic cauldron with the dry ice and all, but this unholy concoction of Jagermeister, sloe gin and lime Kool-Aid gave us all hellish headaches before we could finish one glass.

Luckily for this year's guests, I've since discovered plenty of tasty wines that fit the Halloween theme. How's about a little Vampire Wine with that stake?

For a Halloween bash that's all treats and no tricks, uncork some of these spooky sippers (with suggested Halloween candy pairings):

Vampire Merlot 2000 ($7.99)  1/2 for the wine;  for the label: Straight from the fang-tastic vineyards of Transylvania (aka Romania) this wine's rich, blood-like color promises a succulent sipping experience. It starts out with a peppery bang, but loses some of its gusto after the initial bite. Slightly  tannic, with a hint of freshly dug grave. Tasty with mini Snickers bars. (Not available in Georgia).

Cardinal Zin Beastly Old Vines 2000 ($20)  : The label on this Bonny Doon Vineyard Zinfandel features a sinister-looking cardinal (the  religious kind, not the bird), decked out in devilish red, who seems to be spurting blood in all directions. The Ohio Division of  Liquor Control deemed the image so distastefully disturbing that Cardinal Zin was banned in the Buckeye State. Too bad for Ohioans, cuz this wine is zin-fully good. Amazing raspberry  aromas with balanced, fruity flavors  to match. Intense and delicious. Not bad with Milky Way bars.

Egri Bikaver 1998 Bull's Blood of Eger ($5.99).  : This famous Hungarian wine is a bloody good value. Nice garnet color and fruity aromas. Pleasant raspberry flavors, with a slightly metallic finish. Not what I'd call intense, but a nice wine all the same. Pair with Swedish Fish (the red ones) or Red Vines licorice twists.

Toad Hollow 2000 Eye of the Toad Dry Pinot Noir Rose ($9.99)  1/2:   The label of this dry, pink wine sports a wine-swilling toad with a glowing pink eye. Happily, the wine smells like strawberries, rather than toads, and it tastes of berries and watermelon. Dry, fruity and refreshing. Just add wing of bat and tail of salamander for a potent Halloween potion. Perfect with watermelon Jolly Ranchers.

Rotari Arte Italiana Brut NV ($9.99)  : Here's a bubbly to give Veuve Cliquot, with its orange label and annual Halloween bash, some holiday competition. The Rotari bottle features a bright, pumpkinesque label that's sure  to stand out in the darkest graveyard. With a slightly yeasty aroma, the wine inside the bottle is refreshingly dry with tasty green apple flavors. At only 10 bucks a bottle, you'll get lots more bubble  than toil and trouble. Try it with popcorn balls (check for razor blades first!) or caramel apples.

Editor's Note: These wines will more than likely be found at wine shops and liquor stores, rather than grocery stores. If they are not on the shelves, most wine  merchants are happy to place a special order.

Sure, it looked cool in the plastic cauldron with the dry ice and all, but this unholy concoction of Jagermeister, sloe gin and lime Kool-Aid gave us all hellish headaches before we could finish one glass.

Luckily for this year's guests, I've since discovered plenty of tasty wines that fit the Halloween theme. How's about a little Vampire Wine with that stake?

For a Halloween bash that's all treats and no tricks, uncork some of these spooky sippers (with suggested Halloween candy pairings):

Vampire Merlot 2000 ($7.99)  1/2 for the wine;  for the label: Straight from the fang-tastic vineyards of Transylvania (aka Romania) this wine's rich, blood-like color promises a succulent sipping experience. It starts out with a peppery bang, but loses some of its gusto after the initial bite. Slightly  tannic, with a hint of freshly dug grave. Tasty with mini Snickers bars. (Not available in Georgia).

Cardinal Zin Beastly Old Vines 2000 ($20)  : The label on this Bonny Doon Vineyard Zinfandel features a sinister-looking cardinal (the  religious kind, not the bird), decked out in devilish red, who seems to be spurting blood in all directions. The Ohio Division of  Liquor Control deemed the image so distastefully disturbing that Cardinal Zin was banned in the Buckeye State. Too bad for Ohioans, cuz this wine is zin-fully good. Amazing raspberry  aromas with balanced, fruity flavors  to match. Intense and delicious. Not bad with Milky Way bars.

Egri Bikaver 1998 Bull's Blood of Eger ($5.99).  : This famous Hungarian wine is a bloody good value. Nice garnet color and fruity aromas. Pleasant raspberry flavors, with a slightly metallic finish. Not what I'd call intense, but a nice wine all the same. Pair with Swedish Fish (the red ones) or Red Vines licorice twists.

Toad Hollow 2000 Eye of the Toad Dry Pinot Noir Rose ($9.99)  1/2:   The label of this dry, pink wine sports a wine-swilling toad with a glowing pink eye. Happily, the wine smells like strawberries, rather than toads, and it tastes of berries and watermelon. Dry, fruity and refreshing. Just add wing of bat and tail of salamander for a potent Halloween potion. Perfect with watermelon Jolly Ranchers.

Rotari Arte Italiana Brut NV ($9.99)  : Here's a bubbly to give Veuve Cliquot, with its orange label and annual Halloween bash, some holiday competition. The Rotari bottle features a bright, pumpkinesque label that's sure  to stand out in the darkest graveyard. With a slightly yeasty aroma, the wine inside the bottle is refreshingly dry with tasty green apple flavors. At only 10 bucks a bottle, you'll get lots more bubble  than toil and trouble. Try it with popcorn balls (check for razor blades first!) or caramel apples.

Editor's Note: These wines will more than likely be found at wine shops and liquor stores, rather than grocery stores. If they are not on the shelves, most wine  merchants are happy to place a special order.

"On Halloween night," he chuckles, "you'll walk through this to get into the Echo Lounge!"
With a production budget rumored to be five figures, Stacy and his colorful cohorts from the Black Cat Tattoo parlor will transform the East Atlanta nightspot into a spookhouse called "The Echo-cist," a reference to the 1974 horror classic The Exorcist.

"Not that there's anything wrong with those, but we're going for something more old-school, like a county fair spook show."
Although the details are being kept secret, Stacy reveals that among the Echo-cist's retro features will be a "girl-to-gorilla" transformation booth. Patrons will enter the club not through the front door, but through its side lounge. First, however, they must pass through an immense maze constructed in its parking lot. "Only after that," Stacy explains, "will they be allowed in, to deal with the mayhem inside."
That "mayhem" will include live music by acclaimed Atlanta punkers the X-Impossibles and by Gargantua, whom Stacy describes as "the Teen Beat equivalent to Iron Maiden." Also featured will be performances from Hillbilly Werewolf as well as the Pits, a Pennsylvania-based "horror movie punk band" that Stacy characterizes as a combination of the Misfits and Hasil Adkins.
Emceeing the festivities will be Stacy himself, in his alter ego as the wide-eyed horror host Dr. Crepula. "I've played Crepula before, but he took the year 1999 off because I was getting married on Halloween," recalls Stacy. "I couldn't subject my wife's parents to that!"
"The Echo-Cist" is held Tues., Oct. 31 at the Echo Lounge.

I'm the Crimson Ghost. I loved the movie and it's my favorite band's Misfits logo. I loved all those old black-and-white horror movies with Bela Lugosi and Boris Karloff. Halloween was like my Christmas. I always loved to throw spiders at my Mom and other people who were really scared of them. Every year of my life I have dressed up for Halloween.
Gouda, Atlanta: 
My Mom made me wear this. She thinks I'm a little fairy princess. But I would rather be a blood-sucking evil bat. I've been in witches hats, feathers, boas. People love it. They treat me like a celebrity. I know it's Halloween because my Mom goes crazy with treats and toys for me. These wings can be irritating, but I get a lot more attention. I suffer for my art.
Calu, Atlanta: 
I'm a satanic dead Catholic schoolgirl. I like the irony of Catholicism and Satanism mixed together because it's all the same thing really. I don't believe in Satanism and I like to take the piss in organized religion. We don't have Halloween in England, but I make my Dad celebrate it with me. But being English, I have a real problem with Thanksgiving. Bloody Americans.

The Fourth of July and the Peachtree Road Race marks the high point of the Summer but there are great Festivals in the air conditioning and ice cream and other treats for those headed outdoors. Here's a list of the festivals and fairs that happen all year round. If you are looking for things to do this weekend, today or tomorrow. See our handy guide to the 5 things to do in Atlanta today. We've got critics and reader recommendations for live music, food and wine events, sports, free or those for the family. For a list of neighborhood centric-events or our page of Things to Do in ATL.
