Dear Miss Heather,

Hello. I hope all is well. This is Samara writing you – formerly of the Greenpoint Soup Kitchen trivia night, more recently of the Greenpoint Shul Friday events nights. The Greenpoint Shul is hosting a joke-off and dinner a la the Borscht Belt on April Fool’s Day. The details are below. We’d love it if you could come, and would greatly appreciate it if you could post this event…

Duly posted! Tickets (which are $13.00 per person) can be purchased by clicking here. Otherwise an additional $5.00 donation is appreciated— but not required.

Brooklyn Borscht Belt

It has come to my attention recently that a number of folks hereabouts are unaware:

1. That another RFP for a 200 bed assessment center for 400 McGuinness Boulevard, this time at the behest of Bowery Residents Committee, has been filed.

2. There is a Town Hall meeting next week regarding the aforementioned proposal. A representative of BRC, Muzzy Rosenblatt, is scheduled to be present so as to answer questions.

Mark your calendars:
