It’s an annual dilemma and in a child’s mind, quite possibly, the single greatest question on Halloween night.

What are they passing out? Newport Beach neighborhoods are surveyed. Posses formed. Routes planned. And when they finally arrive at your doorstep, do you want to be “the” house or “that” house? As a public service, we submit the following recommendations…
