Garment DistrictWe've reached the ominous-sounding episode 13 of the show just in time for Halloween! And to celebrate Halloween, I paid a visit to the Garment District: a huge clothing and costume store in Kendall Square.

Every year right before Halloween, you start to see posters on the T for the Garment District. Then you start to see tons of people carrying pink bags with the store's logo and all sorts of fun stuff inside.
