Our October issue is online, on doors and in magazine racks, and we totally take advantage of the eeriest month of the year. Our cover story proves that our neighborhood isn’t just interesting and textured – it’s got nooks, crannies and legends that are downright creepy.

You know Premiere Video on Mockingbird across from Mockingbird Station? It’s one of the last family-owned video rental stores in Dallas. Read our story and watch the video about owner and former geophysicist Sam Wade and what makes his store different from failing behemoths like Blockbuster.

Check out our list of October stories here, like the Vickery Place Centennial Home Tour; Forest Hills resident Patty McGill, who runs the new Dogwood Canyon Audubon Center; gargoyle-maker Mark Sherbet; eateries to get State Fair-like grub; underwater fine art photographer Kathleen Wilke; and a lot more in this thick issue.
