It's been an unfortunate year for hunters. Dick Cheney peppered his buddy with birdshot, and we'll likely never hear the preceding monologue from the spin-off show The Pumpkin Hunter. Fortunately, adults 21 and older can star in their own version of TPH at 6:30 p.m. at the Great Golden Pumpkin Hunt in Carondelet Park (Leona Avenue and Holly Hills Boulevard; meet at Picnic Stand #1 on the Loughborough Avenue side of the park). Prizes are awarded for each pumpkin that's found in the park, and the master scavenger who finds the Great Golden Pumpkin gets $500. So go ahead and bring your flashlight, mate. Food and drinks are included in your $30 ticket price, and proceeds benefit Rebuilding Together-St. Louis, a nonprofit that rehabs houses for the needy. Call 314-918-9918, extension 24, for tickets or more information.
