Happy Pulaski Day From Greenpoint!

Polska, Polska!

Those of you who want to get your Polish Pride on might want to check out the parade.

Polska Shakers

Those of you who are like me* might find purchasing a pair of Polish salt and pepper shakers (and watching caravans of vans blaring Euro-craptastic music tear down the street at breakneck speed) sufficient celebrating. (ASIDE: All in laws, outlaws, and otherwise who are reading this tome take note— each and every one of you are getting these for Christmas.)

Wesoły Boże Narodzenie!

Be Polish, or just look it!

Those of you who aren’t Polish (but want to be) can knock back a celebratory drink (or four) at Mykonos at 253 Grand Street.

And lastly, those of you who want to get your ass kicked you might want to buy one of these.

Szczęśliwy Pulaski Dzień!

  2. Every year I intend to go to the Pulaski Day parade, and every year I miss it. Oh, well, someday … in the meantime I’ll console myself with vodka and pierogis. Thanks for taking me the closest I’ve ever gotten to the celebration.

  4. weird. my roommate is from Chicago, and I just finished saying to her, “we didn’t really celebrate Pulaski Day in NY”. Maybe I should have said, “in Staten Island”. My whole adoptive family is 100% Polish on both sides and my grandmother lived in Bayonne, and yet I never even heard of a punch-key (spelled paczki?! aka “donut with weird filling”) before moving to Grand Rapids, MI. go figure.

    but I’ve spent most of my life trying to deny any connection to being Polish, so maybe I just mentally blocked out Pulaski Day and all that good stuff . . .

  6. I’m one half Polish – my better half, lol, and she would never go to the Pulaski Day parade.

Tell me what you're thinking...
