As I was taking photos of the above fabulously dressed lass I heard a man’s voice from an adjacently parked van. It said:
Hey, why don’t you take a picture of us?
I gladly obliged.
The gentleman to the right is named Apollo. (It said so on his uniform.) When I inquired as to the name of his companion, his answer was as follows:
So there have you!

This little guy (?) was found today inside of a Tupperware container at the Cooper Park Dog Run. Anyone interested in giving this chap the loving home he richly deserves should contact his good Samaritan, Kim, via Facebook.
UPDATE, September 1, 2011: I have word this pup might— just might— have a new home!

Yesterday I happened to be strolling down Kingsland Avenue and, lo, I noticed signs of activity at Boneshaker’s former space! Curious I asked the chap inside what gives. His introduced himself (name is Stas) and he was more than happy to give me the 411; he will be opening an eating and drinking establishment called “One Stop Beer Shop”. As the name indicates, beer will be served on the premises (along with a limited menu along the lines of soup, salads and sandwiches) and you will be able to get growlers to go!
One Stop Beer Shop
Opening Date: Some ways off!

These two cousins where sitting down for a dinner of ham sandwiches outside the bodega when I asked to take their picture. Jonathan (on the right) was cooperative, but Juan on the left kept covering his face and giggling at my exasperation. Eventually hunger and my patience wore him down.
