Lastly, I will once again admonish my fellow Greenpointers to beeline it to the Polonaise Terrace tomorrow night for the mayor’s visit. Be there and bitch (politely, please), or stay home and quit bitching. You can read Brooklyn11211‘s excellent post about this upcoming event by clicking here.

Back to prepping my construction calamity dossier for tomorrow night, I have a date with the mayor!

  2. Greenpoint YMCA is doing the same thing. I’ll go for local every time.

  4. I figured as much, but a PR rep pitching the Bed-Stuy function was the one who contacted me. A little out of my jurisdiction, absolutely. But hey, it’s for a good cause! 😉

Tell me what you're thinking...
