Hey Folks

The Mark bar had an artist drop out, so I’ve been asked to hang a last minute art show. And to celebrate the Holidays we’re gonna having the First Annual Gift-A-Ganza Holiday Fair Featuring Arts, Crafts and Gifts made by the regulars of the Bar and the GSpot,  including Mark Richards, Francis Christie, Carri Skoczek, Lisa Roman and Lindsey McCosh. Expect t-shirts, sock monkeys, jewelry, coffee mugs, and affordable art! I’ll be showing a mix of old and new works from my Roadwork Ahead series and my Great Vintage Race Car series.

The show will be up for the next month.

Please Join us this Sunday from noon-8 pm. There is a $3 all day Happy Hour and a Free Bagel Brunch. Hope to see you there and Happy Holidays!

A New York Shitty Shout Out: Happy Birthday Smitty!

AKA: Chris Smith, AKA the creator of the above masterpiece which (sans customizations made by yours truly) is (still) available for purchase at the Mark Bar or online by clicking here). You have my eternal gratitude for combining two things of which I am quite fond: the Shit Tits and Bad Brains. This one’s for you, Smitty!

This photo (which showcases a Bad Brains-inspired tee shirt featuring none other than our beloved Shit Tits!) was taken by autovac. Two words: love it! Lest you are wondering, this shirt is for sale! You can purchase ’em for the very reasonable price of $20.00 (plus $5.00 shipping) by pointing and clicking here.

UPDATE, March 15, 2010; I have just been informed by my mother that I am to purchase one of these for Pa Heather. I am pleased to report this has come to pass!

Greenpoint Halloween Watch: Zombie Crawl &

As All Hallow’s Eve draws closer I feel compelled to pass along a couple of ways you can while away the evening and have a ghoulishly good time. Here they are!


Greenpoint’s very own Zombie Crawl will kick off at 8:00 p.m. at the Diamond Bar. Judging from the parade of festively fettled (and intoxicated) zombies that besieged my block last year, I’d say this is the thing to do. NOTE: there will be drink specials at each participating bar for those who are clad in zombie attire.

Starting at 8:00 p.m. at the Diamond Bar and concluding at midnight at the Mark Bar
Brooklyn, New York 11222


Just steps away from the Mark Bar, Tommy’s Tavern (AKA: “the murder bar”) will be having an evening of “blood, guts and shakin’ butts” starting at 10:00 p.m. Now I dare any of you not to get behind that!

Nocturno de Sacrificio

Happy haunting!

TONIGHT: Roadwork At The Mark Bar

subtexturethumbThose of you who have eaten at COCO 68 recently probably noticed the art work hanging in the back room. Well, the artist behind these works is Chris Smith and this evening he will be strutting his stuff at our very own Mark Bar! Here are the deets per his press release:

Happy New Year everyone!
Thanks to everyone for your support in the past year, 2009 is already off to a quick start! I’m taking over Brooklyn this month, with my “Roadwork Ahead” series of paintings at 3 locations

Help me celebrate by joining me this Wed at the Mark Bar. They are extending their Economic Bailout Happy Hour until 9pm (that means $3 for almost everything in the bar!!) and be sure to stick around for XXXTreme Bingo at 10pm (yeah you heard me!)

Booze, bingo, art and porn (a bag of which is one of the prizes offered at the Mark Bar’s XXXTreme Bingo Night) : I cannot think of a better way to spend a Wednesday night in Greenpoint!

January 14, 2008, 4:00 – 9:00 p.m.
The Mark Bar
1025 Manhattan Avenue
Brooklyn, New York 11222


Closing on an art-related note, some of you might have noticed that the Habitat recently reopened after taking a few days off for vacation. What you might not have noticed is what’s shaking upstairs.


The space is called The Ceeflat


…and every Thursday night starting tomorrow, January 15, they’re hosting a live open figure drawing workshop. As it would happen one of my resolutions this year is to bone up on my draftsmanship (What’s the point of having a degree in Painting and Drawing if you don’t, in fact, draw anymore?). The promise of “costumes” and a paltry $15.00 fee will undoubtedly make this resolution easier for yours truly to stick with.

The Cee Flat

My fuzzy pink bunny ears are quivering with anticipation!
