Looking to cause mayhem and hate in the Castro this Halloween, teenagers? Look elsewhere. (SFist's official stance on Halloween in the Castro's ruination is this: scary, scary teenagers are to blame. They always are.) The Castro is, once again, not having a massive bash on Halloween night. SFGate has the police department's official press release. Ahem:

There will be no City-sponsored venue in the Castro district for Halloween, Saturday, October 31. There will be no official entertainment provided and no street closures are planned.

The San Francisco Police Department will be enforcing a zero-tolerance policy regarding public drinking and any other criminal activity. Those violating laws prohibiting the consumption of alcohol in public will be subject to arrest.

Check out Home for Halloween for more details.

In related Halloween news, slutty black cats or devils, pimp/ho outfits, and Frank Chu costumes have been banned this year. Well, not really. But they should be.
