"I can see your eyes, I can see your brain..."

Trick-or-treaters will be encouraged to stay up on Main Street on Thursday, but there will be candy here in the shop in case any stray ghouls or goblins wander down the walkway to 
 Willimantic Records. Free live music follows at 6:30pm, featuring 
five local bands disguised for Halloween silliness.

Free Baseball 7" Today - Wednesday, October 23rd

It's the Cards and the Sox in the World Series. Since Rico Petrocelli played for Boston and Dizzy Dean for the Cardinals, might as well repeat the Dizzy/Rico 7" giveaway. 

That's one free Rico/Dizzy 45rpm 7" split single with purchase today, Wednesday, October 23, 2013 while supplies last.
Willimantic Records will be open 12pm to 6pm.

It's the same goofy deal as back on Opening Day last spring.
