For the second year in a row, City of Pasadena departments, divisions and sites were invited to compete in a Halloween lobby-decorating contest.
The judges (including yours truly) went at noontime to the various lobbies. It was a real hoot!
And the winner is: The Environmental Health Division of the Public Health Department.
One of that division's responsibilities is restaurant inspections, so the employees transformed their lobby into a restaurant called Hell's Kitchen...
...with ghoulish waitresses in blood-stained aprons (one was named Salma Nella)...
...and code violations that would make even the most seasoned restaurant inspector run for cover!
Patrons could choose a cute little fishie right out of the tank!
