I don’t know about you, but on a blah day like this nothing cheers me up like a little Halloween goodness. This pirate hails from Russell Street just down the block from one ofÂ the coolest, creepiest houses in Greenpoint. Keep an eye for him!

The purpose of this post is two fold: shameless self-promotion (albeit for a cause— somewhat) and giving (long overdue) props to wonderful lady who— if I remember correctly— coined the term “stray cat strut” (for posts of a feline nature). I’ll start with the latter first:
Her name is Jennifer. She operates a site called Last Night’s Dinner. She resides in Rhode Island (or as I prefer to see it: she is a Brooklyn ex-pat operative in Rhode Island). Jennifer is a cat lover par excellence. She is also a damned good chef. And last month she received some very well deserved (and long overdue) press:

Otherwise you can view the many culinary creations of Jennifer (and the occasional glimpse of her pussies, including June Bug who hails from Bushwick, Brooklyn U.S.A.) by clicking here. WAY TO GO, JEN! I think the Mister wants to marry you— for your personality pork burgers.
Otherwise, I am proud to announce that I will be having an exhibition of my photography at Greenpoint’s very own TBD this December! The general premise/theme will be “(People) In My Neighborhood”. The details have yet to finessed (because I have to finesse them) but there will be an opening and all the works contained therein will be for sale.
I intend to allocate a portion of the proceeds to causes I am particularly fond of. Empty Cages Collective (whose rusty tabby graces this post) will be one of them. The Greenpoint Reformed Church’s Food Pantry/Soup Kitchen will be another. That’s the short list. Although I am a self-professed cat lady, I have no intention of leaving my canine compatriots out in the cold!
More details to follow.

P.S.: Some of you might have noticed that a new “category” graces this post. It is called “BAD ASS” and is inspired by the Cadillac-cum-date rape of my senses and sensibilities which graces the beginning of this post.

This— the latest addition to the slew of lost pet fliers I have found this week— hails from Union Avenue and Bayard Street. Troy’s person, Jessica, writes:
Just moved to Greenpoint from Virginia and my dog Troy got out last night Oct. 7 without his collar. He is a 2 yr old German Shepherd who is very friendly and gentle but extremely timid. Troy is about 55 lbs and has white on his paws, chest, and tip of his tail. He shys away from unfamiliar faces which makes locating him tricky. Please call me if you see him so I can assist in the rescue and get him home.
If you have seen Troy or know of his whereabouts you know what to do… Thanks!
Yes kids, your eyes are not deceiving you: this week yours truly (albeit in a circumspect manner) and Peter Pan Bakery got a little link love from Women’s Day magazine online! You can see it all by clicking here. CAVEAT: if imagery of bacon double cheeseburgers served up on two Krispy Kreme doughnuts nauseates or otherwise disturbs you, do NOT click the previous link.
Those of you who didn’t get your fill of Oktoberfestvities last weekend will be delighted to know The Habitat will be rolling out its second annual Oktoberfest this Saturday, October 8. Among the goodies offered are $4.00 pints, $8.00 flights of beer andÂ “traditional German food”. Check it out!
