Looking for a way to beat the heat and get your daily caloric intake in one sitting? Look no further! In the tradition of fried Oreos and Snickers bars Greenpoint’s very own Peter Pan Bakery is keeping it real with…

Methinks I will have to give this, the newest gustatory item to grace the Garden Spot, a whirl. Stay tuned— a product review will be forthcoming!

Sugar coma notwithstanding.

Yes folks, the peeps at Cookie Road have issued a more budget friendly (but no less disturbing) version of their infamous Michael Jackson cookie.

What’s more, now you can bite the head off of the Chief Executive of the United States for a mere $3.75 (and no visits from the Secret Service)! It can’t get any better than this.*

* ACTUALLY IT CAN! Last up for this Saturday, August 1: a culinary item so ingenious it could only come from 11222. Stay tuned!

New York Shitty Day Ender: Calling All North Brooklyn Unemployeds!

Briana of Unemployed Brooklyn writes (in an email entitled “Greenpoint Unemployed”):

…I am trying to get a group together for unemployed peeps in Greenpoint and Williamsburg and thought you might be able to help me get the word out. I know you have a lot of loyal readers in the ‘hood (me included!)… I don’t have a definite time/place set yet, but am trying to gauge interest  – and see what I can get together.
What my fellow Greenpointer, Briana, is proposing is a forum where unemployeds can provide mutual emotional support, tender advice regarding their respective resumes/job searches, and make friends. Over beer!

Any and all who are interested in participating in this job fair for the jobless should contact the proprietress of this site at the above email address. Great idea, Briana!

Greenpoint Photo Du Jour: Alternative Use For Manhattan Avenue’s Bike Lane #457

Grab a dolly and your best bud and take that new twin mattress home!

To close on the subject of mattresses always exercise caution when purchasing one. In New York State it is legal to sell “reconditioned” mattresses, e.g.; used mattresses that purport to be “sanitized” for re-use. I use the word “purport” because they quite often are not. Reconditioned mattresses are required by law to have a yellow tag— but unfortunately often do not. It should also be noted that reconditioning isn’t a guarantee it won’t harbor a few unwanted guests, if you know what I mean.If the price of that mattress (or box springs) seem to be too good to be true, it probably is.

To get an idea why this practice should be abolished (or at the very least strictly regulated) click here and you will be redirected to New York Vs. Bed Bugs web site. If you want to see some shit that will really gross you out click here.

Sleep tight!
