histrory oh halloween:
Halloween is a holiday celebrated on the night of October 31. The word Halloween is a shortening of All Hallows' Evening also known as Hallowe'en or All Hallows' Eve. Halloween has its origins in the ancient Celtic festival known as Samhain (pronounced "sah-win"). It is a celebration of the end of the harvest season in Gaelic culture. Samhain was a time used by the ancient pagans to take stock of supplies and prepare for winter. The ancient Gaels believed that on October 31, the boundaries between the worlds of the living and the dead overlapped and the deceased would come back to life and cause havoc such as sickness or damaged crops.

New Foursquare Badge: Dennis & Chelsa Wedding

Name: Dennis & Chelsa Wedding

"What began as a friendly bike ride has led us to this wonderful day. Congrats, Dennis and Chelsa. You guys are the squeeziest! #sqz"

How To Unlock:
- Active during "Dennis & Chelsa Wedding Party", 19 October 2013
- Wedding Party location at Buttermilk Falls Inn & Spa (New York)
- Limited time and limited person
- Dennis Crowley (born June 19, 1976) is an American Internet entrepreneur best known for co-founding the popular social networking sites Dodgeball and Foursquare.

More Foursquare Badge: 

Chelsa Lynn Skees and Dennis Paul Crowley were married Saturday at Buttermilk Falls Inn in Milton, N.Y. Sarah Simmons, a Universal Life Church minister, officiated. 

The bride, 32, is an editorial and strategy director at Bobbi Brown Cosmetics in New York. She works with the creative, digital and marketing departments on social media strategy and the naming of collections. She graduated from Indiana University at Fort Wayne. 

She is the daughter of Pamela Cordova Garbig of Citra, Fla., and Kerry L. Skees of Warsaw, Ind., and a stepdaughter of Terry Garbig. 

The groom, 37, is a founder and the chief executive of Foursquare, the social networking service, in New York. He is a founder of Dodgeball, a social networking service in New York that was acquired by Google in 2005. He graduated from Syracuse University and received a master’s in professional studies from the Interactive Telecommunications Program at New York University, where he is an adjunct professor. 

He is a son of Mary Moraski Crowley and Dennis P. Crowley of Medway, Mass. 

The couple met through friends in December 2007 at Mr. Crowley’s annual Christmas tree-trimming party. But he had noticed Ms. Skees a few months earlier when she started popping up in mutual friends’ photographs on Flickr. 

“I was like: ‘Who is this person? Why don’t we hang out with her?’ ” Mr. Crowley said. So when she arrived at his apartment, he almost could not maintain his aplomb. 

Ms. Skees said she had no romantic interest in Mr. Crowley, but they became friends, regularly e-mailing and instant-messaging, and sharing silly photos on Flickr. Mr. Crowley said that he also paid particularly close attention to Ms. Skees on Dodgeball, which allowed users to share their locations with a network of friends, and once or twice “serendipitously” showed up at the same bar as she. 

“I try to have more fun than I was having yesterday,” Mr. Crowley said, “and she’s the first person I’ve ever met who I have trouble keeping up with.” 

Mr. Crowley finally got the nerve to ask her out via e-mail in June 2008. He was visiting his parents on Cape Cod at the time, but when Ms. Skees said yes to a bicycle ride, he packed up and drove back to New York that evening. The next day, they spent eight hours together, riding 15 miles to see the waterfalls created by the artist Olafur Eliasson in the East River. At the end of the night, as they said goodbye on the Williamsburg Bridge, Mr. Crowley leaned over and tried to kiss her. 

Startled, Ms. Skees hopped onto her bike and rode off. She had not thought that they were on a date. “I just didn’t realize it,” she said. “But it put the idea in my mind. It kind of does make sense. He’s the perfect guy for me. Our friends always joke that I’m the girl version of him, and he’s the boy version of me.” 

They never formally discussed what happened that night, but they began hanging out more often, and by the end of July, they shared their first kiss after a Mets game.

Venue List:

Press Release via BillBoard:

Internet radio service Songza has partnered with location-based social network Foursquare to reward its listeners for checking into music venues. 
Beginning Monday (Sept. 30), Songza users that check into venues on Foursquare will get a Songza badge and be given access to a special playlist that was curated in collaboration with Foursquare. In the coming weeks, Songza will unveil the second level of the Songza badge. The first 500 people to unlock the second level will receive six months of free listening on its advertising-free premium level of service, Songza Club. 
The partnership is rooted in the two companies' home of New York. The Songza-Foursquare tie-up will be officially announced Monday evening at event hosted by New York City mayor Michael Bloomberg for "We Are Made in NY," the city's economic development initiative that highlights its technology community. 
The New York theme extends to a list of venues Songza has contributed to Foursquare, although other technology centers like Austin and San Francisco are also represented. Canada, where Songza launched in August 2012, has its own list of 15 music venues. "Unexpected Best Venues Ever in NYC" offers three hole-in-the-wall music venues in Manhattan and Brooklyn. "Best Brooklyn Venues to Stand Close to Bands" lists 11 venues including Glassland Gallery, Union Pool and Death By Audio. 
Songza co-founder and chief content officer Eric Davich answered some questions about the partnership, its relevance to Songza's mobile users, and how Songza tries to stand out in an increasingly crowded Internet radio field.
