On this last weekend in October, San Francisco will be bathed in orange and black for two reasons. First, they're the colors of the city's beloved Giants who are in pursuit of their second World Series title in three years. And then of course it's the weekend before Halloween, a holiday celebrated in over-the-top fashion in San Francisco's gay Castro District. The annual event has been scaled back after a shooting in 2006, but it inspired songwriter Chuck Prophet, a long time neighborhood resident, to write a song about it.
