Halloween is around the corner and we at want to once again beat the shit out of real media and be the first to talk about the 2010 edition of the event.

The key word here is "want", because if you're only interested in party listings, real media will be your savior. With their usual lack of imagination, they'll just print the hell-out of party listings the week before the week-end of horror. The other smarter option is to keep an eye on our party listings page (PS: if you happen to be a promoter for such an event, post it there, it's free and it will make you cool).

To top it all, last year we explored the philosophical question of what makes Halloween so damn sexy and attractive in the mind of adults. After all, isn't it a kid's holiday? Well, read up last year's gold article and you'll know.

Now you're probably thinking: "Don't leave us hanging this year. Share some more gold on Halloween."

Well, you're in luck, because I will introduce you, on this very web page, to one of my favorite shops in Montreal, Eva B.

Eva B is an authentic Montreal oddity, difficult to describe on paper. You're better-off visiting it (2013 St-Laurent, just north of Ontario).

It is mostly a used clothes store, but it also more than that. Clothing wise, it is setup almost like a warehouse, with clothing left and right, on the floor and on the ceiling, in boxes and on walls. Shopping there is like going to a treasure hunt. And the prices can be ridiculously low. You'll find some funky old, used or vintage clothes, to be used for everyday coolness or for Halloween costume-making (here is your Halloween tip for this year).

But what I love the most about Eva B is grabbing a coffee there. Yes, you read right, they make a flavor-punching espresso. You can drink it sitting at their bar, enjoy a cookie and bask surrounded by piles of clothes.

I also love the art, on the walls and outside. They also sell old posters, and all kinds of little oddities.

Once, I went in for an afternoon coffee, and some local band was shooting a music video in there. They also have a space for art exhibits. Basically, you never know what will or is happening there.

So here it is; you now know about an amazing, original and independent business. Visit Eva B, save some money on clothing, help the planet by re-using, have a real coffee (not a Starbucks crap) and talk to the graying man who is either behind the bar, lying on the couch or in front of his store.

PS: If you want to really cheap-out on Halloween, go for a simple almost-inexistent Halloween costume.
