The Day Batman Died

Siblings Halloween

The day was October 31, 2008. I was at a bar/restaurant called Cellars in Belltown with a couple friends. The usual halloween mayhem was going on around us but we weren’t partaking, just grabbing a couple beers after a long week at work. A couple rounds in it was time to visit the bathroom. What did I see upon my arrival? Batman doing a line of coke off the toilet. That was the day Batman died.

I had always wondered why that image bothered me in addition to being hilarious. Then I unearthed this picture of the Pecott siblings getting ready to go out trick-or-treating back when we were kids…
