    Our arachnid friends?

    They're out and about now, in several ways, at places like the National History Museum's Spider Pavilion, and in our shrubs and hedges, and, yes, on the store shelves, where plastic spiders are competing for our Halloween-decorating dollars alongside ghosts and vampires.

    Spiders are not, however, featured in the fancy foodstuffs we're choosing to dine upon.

    And yet?

    If you strut into Nixo Patio Lounge at the Luxe City Center Hotel in the days ahead of Halloween 2018, and you ask for a seasonal dish that's only available for a limited time, you will, yes, have to involve the word "spider" when you order.

    And yet?

    There are no spiders in the memorably monikered, very photographable Spider Burger, a just-introduced concoction at the DTLA restaurant. There, is however, a soft-shell crab, standing in, leggily, for the shape of a spider, and several other savory ingredients, too.

    Those include guacamole, lending the whole filling dish a bit of Halloween-themed green, and yummy yuzu aioli, and pickled red onions, and a heap of watercress to help veg-out the legs-out meal.

    The bun? It's brioche, a breadstuff which could aptly be described as being soft as a web.

    The price for the Spider Burger? It's eighteen bucks, or ten more bucks than a spider has legs.

    The final day for this not-so-fearsome foodstuff? Spider walk yourself to Nixo Patio Lounge soon, or at least through the evening of Wednesday, Oct. 31. 

    Your next step? 

    Best spin your web and catch any seafood-obsessed, Halloween-loving buds for a meal out downtown.

    The Spider Burger may be snapshot-worthy, and tummy-filling, and piquant as all get-out, but also happens to be, take heart, 100% spider-free.

    Whatever age you might be, and at whatever level of party-planning interest, we'll politely advise you on one important matter: Your 95th birthday should be a super-big bash.

    And, if your 95th birthday has already gone by?

    Then, you know what we're saying here. It's an auspicious and celebratory occasion, one that comes a half-decade before your centennial, the next "big" birthday on the list. (Though every birthday, at every single stage of life, is, of course, big.)

    To look for inspiration on planning your 95th, or reminiscing about the great 95th you had, look to El Cholo Mexican Restaurants, the beyond-classic cocinas that generations of Southern Californians have combo'd at, chipped-up at, and margarita'd-over through the decades.

    We Angelenos do love El Cholo, and El Cholo loves its loyal customers right back. And to celebrate those customers and its 95th anniversary, the restaurants will price the Combo #1 at, wait for it, 95 cents.

    Don't wait for it, actually: It's exciting. But you will have to physically wait for Tuesday, Oct. 23, if you're reading this before Oct. 23, which is when this anniversary deal is happening.

    Don't wait, though, to peruse what the Combo #1 is all about, if you've never enjoyed it: It's a cheese enchilada, rolled beef taco, Spanish rice, and refried beans.

    It's a dish that's so iconic it feels positively Smithsonian-worthy, or at least due its own museum wing at a repository of famous foods. Combo #1 is, after all, El Cholo's best-selling dish ever.

    We typed "restaurants" before, and made it plural on purpose, as this deal will happen at every El Cholo, from the landmark on Western Avenue to La Habra to Anaheim Hills.

    So how many Combo #1 plates can each person get? Good question, if we do say so: "One" is the answer.

    You'll also want to keep the "first come first serve" call to action in mind, and that there are no substitutions.

    And, for sure, this deal is for those guests planning to "dine in," so find your closest El Cholo, or one you've been wanting to visit, and be there on Oct. 23, to wish this delicious outfit a happy centennial minus five years.

    Or happy nine decades, plus a half decade? There are many wonderful ways to convey 95 years, all told.

    Cheers to Combo #1, its dedicated and famished fans, and the beloved eateries that have so elegantly created a legend over the better part of a century.

    Cheers, El Cholo!

    Adore a classic cheese enchilada, a rolled beef taco, and beans and rice? Then you just could be a longtime fan of El Cholo's Combo #1.

    Día de los Muertos at Olvera Street: It's true, if you know the historic district and its annual come-togethers, that the muertos-merry, memory-deep celebration of those who have gone will take place on Nov. 1 and 2, 2018. But the nightly Novenario procession in honor of the solemn but sweet occasion will begin at 7 o'clock on Thursday, Oct. 25. This every-evening event will tenderly take place through to Nov. 2, so do make plans to stop by the free event to bask in the spirit of the spirited season.

    The Big Carve: While "BYOB" is a common sight on invitations, "BYOP" is seen far less often. Unless, of course, it is the week before Halloween, and a Santa Ana bar is holding an event that's all about creating ghoulish gourds, complete with smiles, designs, or whatever you'd like to see on the front of a squash. The 2018 date is Wednesday, Oct. 24, and if you can't BYOP, you can pay for a chance to visit the venue's "pumpkin patch" (that'll be ten bucks). For all of the need-to-knows on this seed-filled, guts-laden good time, start here, pumpkin carvers of SoCal.

    Oktoberfest Farewell: The season to show everyone your Chicken Dance, as well as your stein-holding skills, is wrapping up, but you can still dance your way to Huntington Beach's Old World, and other spots around Southern California, for one more schnitzel, one more oompah, one more chance to don your dirndl. Old World's Oktoberfest is a big bash, so big that it extends to a couple of weeknights, too, and not just the weekend. So make your way to the party on Oct. 24 or 25, if you want to miss the final weekend crowd (as fun as that'll be, too).

    Monster Make-up Exhibit: This is the all-important week, the week before All Hallows Eve, when the costume inspo needs to kick in, and fearsomely fast, too. If you're eager to see how some of the cinematic masters have created their best and most famous monsters, get to The Hollywood Museum for a look at several spooky masks, creatures, and displays devoted to the creation of critters seen on the silver screen. The exhibit is open Wednesdays through Sundays, keep in mind. Will you see your best-loved movie baddie there? Chances are good... er, bad?

    Leaf Love in Lake Arrowhead: There might be a lot of light debate about when an area truly reaches "peak" fall color, but one thing can't be quibbled over: This mountain area kind of owns colorful trees around the last third of October, each and every year. And whether an aspen is still showing a touch of green or an oak has dropped some pretty cover will really depend upon the day you arrive, the weather (and any precipitation), and where you go to look around the region. But a weekday drive is primo, especially since leaf peepers have an understandable habit of toodling around on the weekends. Happy autumn outing, fall fans.

    A device containing explosive powder was sent to the Westchester, New York home of George Soros on Monday, law enforcement officials tell NBC 4 New York.

    The device was similar to a pipe bomb and was left in the Cantitoe Street mailbox of the billionaire philanthropist, who has become a target of right wing groups, a senior law enforcement official said.

    No injuries were reported. A second law enforcement official said authorities are not sure whether the device was operational, but the investigation is ongoing.

    An employee at the house opened the package, placed it in a wooded area and called Bedford police, who rendered it safe. 

    The FBI is working with police to figure out who sent the device and said there is no threat to public safety.

    Why did this sea lion cross the road?

    We're not really sure, but it must not have been that important because it stopped in the middle of an intersection in San Diego to apparently scratch its back.

    Officers were called to the intersection of Garrison and Rosecrans streets around 3:30 p.m. to find the seal laying on its back in the roadway blocking traffic.

    It was in no apparent hurry to clear the intersection despite the row of cars waiting for their right of way.

    A SeaWorld San Diego crew arrived a short time later and trapped the sea lion in a net and loaded into a cage.

    SeaWorld Senior Animal Care Specialist Heather Armentrout said the female sea lion didn't appear to have any injuries but didn't say it was odd for her to be in the street.

    She was taken back to SeaWorld where the staff was going to check her out with plans of releasing her to the ocean, Armentrout said.

    Armentrout said she's taken part in sea lion rescues in city streets before but has never seen one that far inland.

    No other information was available.

    Nine people have joined a class action lawsuit filed on Friday in Los Angeles County Superior Court against e-scooter companies Bird and Lime, along with their manufacturers, alleging "gross negligence," attorney Catherine Lerer told NBC4.

    People in the lawsuit, along with several others represented by the attorney, listed their injuries on the personal attorney's website with graphic images that detail the injuries, which occurred in San Diego, Santa Monica, Oakland, Los Angeles, Venice, West Hollywood and Westwood.

    Broken arms, facial injuries, broken legs, broken teeth, concussions, lacerations and other injuries are detailed on the website--several of which claimed to have required surgery.

    The lawsuit alleges that the e-scooter companies contributed to injuries in multiple ways by "dumping" the transportation devices on streets without appropriate warning, per the Washington Post.

    Multiple plaintiffs claim that they were struck by e-scooters while walking. One incident involving David Petersen, 62, alleges the licensed street performer was struck by an e-scooter while performing an act on the Santa Monica Pier, where e-scooters are not allowed.

    "I was like, 'Get the number of that motor vehicle that hit me,'" Petersen said on Monday. "But guess what? They don't have a license plate. There's no way to identify them."

    Petersen broken his arm and suffered a ruptured bicep that required surgery. The rider of the Bird scooter rode away, and the incident was being called a hit-and-run, with Petersen and Lerer alleging that Bird had refused to provide the rider's name when requested.

    "I'd like to walk without looking over my shoulder every few seconds," Petersen said.

    Bird issued a statement in response to the lawsuit on Monday:

    "Class action attorneys with a real interest in improving transportation safety should be focused on reducing the 40,000 deaths caused by cars every year in the U.S. At Bird, safety is our very top priority, and it drives our mission to get cars off the road to make cities safer and more livable. The climate crisis and our car addiction demand a transportation mode shift to cleaner, affordable vehicles. Shared e-scooters are already replacing millions of short car trips and the pollution that comes with them, and we at Bird will continue to work with cities to help them redesign their transportation networks so that they are safer and cleaner."

    Lime issued the following statement in response to the lawsuit on Monday:

    "Lime received the complaint recently and we are in the process of reviewing it. While we don't comment on pending litigation, safety has always been at the very core of everything we do at Lime -- as is our mission of reducing cars from city streets and making them safer and greener for pedestrians, bike and scooter riders alike. Lime prides itself on always taking proactive steps relating to safety wherever we have a presence."

    Federal health officials now have reports of 155 possible cases of acute flaccid myelitis, a polio-like syndrome that mostly affects children and that causes muscle weakness and paralysis, federal health officials said on Monday.

    The latest update from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention shows no change in the number of confirmed cases — 62 cases in 22 states, NBC News reported. But state health departments have reported another 28 suspected cases.

    The CDC urges parents to get kids to an emergency room quickly if a child has the following symptoms: difficulty moving the eyes or drooping eyelids, facial droop or weakness, difficulty with swallowing or slurred speech, or sudden arm or leg weakness.

    Can the neighbors see your Christmas tree if they stand across the street?

    Can you see the Christmas tree at your office or the local park if you're down the block?

    Both impressive, for sure, but then Christmas trees can be quite sizable, and sparkly, and depending on how baubled-out they are, the fabulous firs can be spotted from a good distance away.

    But there is really only one tree that can be seen way down the 5 Freeway, and we're not even sure if one "way" is enough. So make that way, way, way down the 5, just a short drive southeast of downtown Los Angeles: It's the World's Largest Live-Cut Christmas Tree, a seasonal staple at Citadel Outlets.

    And while Christmas tree lightings don't start before November, at least for the time being, the mega trees of Southern California do need to arrive well in advance of the eleventh month, in order that a team may properly situate, set up, and decorate the superstar shrub.

    And such a superstar is due at Citadel Outlets on Tuesday, Oct. 23. That's when the 110-foot white fir, which hails from the Shasta-Trinity National Forest and was sourced by Victor's Custom Christmas Trees, arrives, well over two weeks ahead of its Nov. 10 lighting celebration.

    A few things to know about this branchy beauty? Well, the branches, for one, serve as one conversational point. Some had to be removed at the base, for the tree's journey to Los Angeles, but those'll be "reaffixed" in the days ahead.

    A dozen trees were planted where this giant once stood. And as far as selecting a tree goes? It was "near the end of its lifespan," and its removal "... is part of an important forest manicuring process that frees up forest space for smaller trees and keeps the forest healthy."

    Should you visit for the Nov. 10 Tree Lighting Concert, you'll spy some 10,000 ornaments on the magnificent behemoth and over 18,000 LED lights.

    Lights and ornaments that, yes, will mean it may be seen, or at least its upper portion, from rather far down the Golden State Freeway.

    Appearing at the Nov. 10 event? Look for Maddie Poppe and Caleb Lee Hutchinson of "American Idol," pop artish John Lindahl, and The All-American Boys Chorus.

    A poisoned owl was found on the doorstep of a Santa Clara County home last month and eventually died, triggering an investigation by wildlife officials.

    The Morgan Hill homeowner at first thought the bloodied and dazed bird had been shot. But a state Fish and Wildlife investigation revealed the owl died from eating a rodent that had been the target of extermination.

    "He said that the owl had tested positive for rodenticide, which is poison," said Cindy, the homeowner who found the owl.

    When it was discovered the owl had been poisoned, its death generated social movements to protect them and other animals from being poisoned.

    Officials with the Wildlife Education and Rehabilitation Center in Morgan Hill recently treated, rehabilitated and released a Great Horned owl back into the wild. They said the owls are native to the area.

    "When you’re introducing a poison into the ecosystem, you’re not only affecting that animal they’re ... targeting with the bait, but it’s also going to cascade down the ecosystem, the food web," WERC Director Ashley Quick said.

    WERC says many wildlife groups across the state are trying to get laws to protect animals from being poisoned by this chain, including an ordinance being developed in Morgan Hill.

    "More and more cases are being discovered, with anti coagulant rodenticide poisoning in our local birds of prey and our local mountain lions and bobcats," WERC President Joy Joyner said. “What we’re trying to do is create an initiative to educate the population on other humane ways to solve this problem."

    A crowd watching from the ground cheered Tuesday morning when Orange County firefighters rescued a window washer who was stranded on a rope after his scaffolding collapsed outside a nine-story building Tuesday morning in Santa Ana.

    The worker was harnessed to the rope at about the seventh floor of the federal building at 34 Civic Center Boulevard, according to the Orange County Fire Authority. 

    "He was roughly on the seventh floor dangling by a safety rope," said Orange County Fire Authority Battalion Chief Craig Covey. "It's something we train for all the time."

    The team has ropes up to about 600 feet long for what's called a "high angle rescue." The proper equipment training and a calm window washer led to a smooth rescue operation high above Santa Ana, Covey said. 

    "The victim was very calm," said Covey. "Obviously, it's not his first time doing this. He remained calm the whole time and our guys could just get to work.

    "It's a great day today. We got to save a life. That's what we live for."

    An Orange County Fire Association fire-rescue team member was lowered down from the building's roof and secured the worker. The two were then lowered to the ground.

    Witnesses who had been watching on the ground clapped and cheered as the window washer touched down. 

    Rescue team members were talking with the window washer through a window during the operation. 

    Nearby streets were closed for the rescue operation. 

    The stranded worker did not appear to suffer serious injuries.

    "The blade extends" reads a bit like direction you might find in a tense and thrilling screenplay, a tale that boasts some skulduggery, whodunit-a-tude, and a whole bunch of mystery.

    But "the Blade extends" takes on a different meaning when we're talking about Delusion, the "Interactive Theatrical Experience" that gives you the rare opportunity to play an essential part in a story.

    A story that doesn't hand you a script; rather, you have to live the story, and all of the excitement, twists, and atmosphere it delivers, moment-by-moment.

    It's that excitement that has fans returning to Delusion's annual falltime experience each year, and the fact that tickets regularly sell out to the multi-night event in a jiffy is now common knowledge among fans. 

    Be cheered, however, by this new news, as of Tuesday, Oct. 23: The highly creative, envelope-pushing troupe behind Delusion has extended the run of "The Blue Blade," over several months, beginning again on Feb. 14, 2019.

    Happy Valentine's Day, indeed.

    The current run wraps in the middle of December, which gives the performers and teams a bit of time off after a buzzed-about autumn packed with Blade-busy nights.

    Nights that happen at an undisclosed location. Well, it is disclosed on your ticket, of course, so you'll know where to go.

    "The Blue Blade" will shine, Thursdays through Sundays, from Feb. 14 through to the end of June 2019. Tickets are $95 and $115 — the price depends on the time you go — and there's a VIP package, a new option after many fans made a request.

    A pair of gratis drinks, a behind-the-scenes peek, and other goodies are part of that fresh level of Blue-Blade-ery.

    It's been one of the interactive hits of the spooky season, and Delusion's forward momentum is set to continue over several months, with winter, spring, and even a week or so of summer in the mix.

    Need tickets for this fresh stretch of suspenseful intrigue? They're on sale, as of Oct. 23, and if past is indeed prologue, they'll all sell out again.

    Six children at a long-term care medical facility in New Jersey have died after a “severe outbreak” of adenovirus, a family of viruses that can cause mild illness, while 12 others have been infected, according to the state's Department of Health.

    New Jersey Department of Health officials said children were recently infected with adenovirus at the Wanaque Center for Nursing and Rehabilitation in Haskell, Passaic County. The medical institution houses the Pediatric Center.

    The facility has been instructed not to admit any new patients until the outbreak ends and they are in full compliance, the DOH says.

    Adenoviruses are common viruses that can cause a range of illnesses, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. The viruses cause cold-like symptoms, sore throat, bronchitis, pneumonia, diarrhea, and pink eye. Adenoviruses can pose serious complications to certain people, particularly those with weakened immune systems, respiratory issues and cardiac disease.

    That is the case at the Wanaque Center, health officials said. 

    "Unfortunately, the particular strain of adenovirus (#7) in this outbreak is affecting medically fragile children with severely compromised immune systems," the New Jersey Department of Health in a statement. "This strain has been particularly associated with disease in communal living facilities."

    According to the CDC, adenoviruses are typically spread from an infected person to others through: close personal contact such touching or shaking hands; through the air by coughing and sneezing; or by touching an object or surface with adenoviruses on it, then touching your mouth, nose, or eyes before washing your hands.

    Health investigators visited the facility over the weekend as part of their probe, officials said.

    The state Department of Health further said that it is monitoring the situation “very closely” and has been in contact with the staff at the center “providing guidance on infection control and cleaning procedures.”

    The Wanaque Center is a for-profit facility that, according to its website, works with "with medically fragile children" from newborn to 22 years of age. The center also serves as an adult nursing home and rehabilitation center for short- and long-term care.

    A spokesperson for the Wanaque Center did not respond to repeated request for comment.

    New Jersey Gov. Phil Murphy issued a statement on the adenovirus outbreak saying that he is "heartbroken by the news that several children have lost their lives."

    "I have been briefed by [Commissioner of Health] Dr. [Shereef] Elnahal, who has assured me that the Department of Health has recommended vital measures to enhance protections against the further spread of infection and will continue its active on-site surveillance," Murphy says in his statement. "I am confident that the steps being taken by state and local officials will minimize the impact to all those who remain at the facility, including patients and employees.”

    The cause of the outbreak remains unclear.

    For years, Beth Pratt has been working with government officials, industry, and the local community to build a bridge that could save Los Angeles' mountain lions from the grim future that their population currently face.

    On Tuesday, she will walk in their footsteps. 

    Pratt, who is the California director for The National Wildlife Federation, will lead a five-day hike that retraces the 50-mile path that a mountain lion named P-22 took when he left his birthplace in the Santa Monica Mountains to reach his current home in Griffith Park. The hike will kick off at the site of the proposed wildlife crossing -- the Liberty Canyon trailhead off the 101 Freeway in Agoura --where new design concept images of the wildlife crossing will be released for the first time. 

    Her five-day journey will showcase two of the busiest freeways in America - both crossed by P-22 - and end when she finally arrives at family-friendly festival being thrown Saturday to celebrate P-22 in Griffith Park. 

    Pratt will wear a mountain lion tracking collar during her journey. NBC4's Aliya Jasmine will be following along and sharing the adventure via our social media and digital platforms, be sure to follow along at: @nbcla

    A plane crash landed on lanes of the 101 Freeway in Agoura Hills Tuesday, bursting into flames, and amazingly, the pilot walked away.

    The crash occurred near the center lanes of the northbound 101 Freeway near Liberty Canyon Road, according to the LA County Fire Department. 

    The plane's wing, still aflame, was draped over the center divider.

    All lanes will be closed for an unknown duration.

    The back end of the plane appeared to be missing as the fire continued to burn on lanes.

    Traffic on the northbound side was backed up for miles as crews worked to clear the wreckage.

    The venue is ready, the teams are set, and now the rosters are solidified. All that's left for the Los Angeles Dodgers and the Boston Red Sox is to play ball and allow the chips to fall where they may and a champion will rise.

    The final piece of the postseason puzzle was announced on Tuesday morning ahead of Game 1 of the World Series when both teams released their 25-man rosters to the public.

    As they've done all postseason, the Dodgers went with 12 pitches and 13 position players. For the most part, they stood pat in how they constructed the team that will face the Red Sox in a best-of-seven series.

    All 13 position players remain the same, with the Dodgers having the luxury of being deep enough to essential assemble to different teams: one against a left-handed starter, and one against a right-handed starter.

    As they did before their NL Championship Series with the Milwaukee Brewers, the Dodgers made one move on the pitching side, switching out left-handed reliever Scott Alexander for another left-handed reliever in Julio Urias.

    Alexander is back on the roster for the World Series, presumably ready and rested after a 10-day reprieve. However, Urias did not come off the roster. The 22-year-old remained on the team and rookie southpaw Caleb Ferguson came off theroster. 

    Alexander hasn't pitched since Game 3 of the NLDS when he pitched a scoreless inning of relief against the Atlanta Braves.

    The move to leave Ferguson off the roster is a surprising one to some, as the 22-year-old has been outstanding out of the bullpen in 2018, finishing the season 7-1 with a 2.35 ERA in 26 appearances.

    Ferguson pitched in four games during the NLCS against the Brewers and retired four of the five batters he faced. However, his velocity started to decrease in that series and it's possible with Ferguson playing longer and deeper into the season than he ever has before that the front office thought it was time for a more fresh arm.

    Meanwhile, the Red Sox also made one change to their roster, adding left-hander Drew Pomeranz to the 25-man roster in place of Brandon Workman. The Dodgers are familiar with Pomeranz from his days as a starting pitcher with the San Diego Padres, but he has not pitched since September 30. 

    Game 1 will feature Clayton Kershaw against Chris Sale at 5:09PM PT on FOX.
