THIS WEEK: Robert Guskind’s Memorial Service

March 29, 2009 ·
Filed under: Park Slope 

bobthumbAlthough I have already made mention of this event on New York Shitty I feel compelled to follow up with an update. Here it goes.

Thanks to the tremendous outpouring of time and money from Nicole Davis of Brooklyn Based, Jake Dobkin of Gothamist, Lockhart Steele of Curbed, Jonathan Butler of Brownstoner, Susan Fox of Park Slope Parents, Norman Oder of The Atlantic Yards Report and many others too numerous to list here it is shaping up to be a lovely memorial service. Among the things you can expect at this celebration of Bob’s life and work are:

  1. a running slide show of photographs from The Gowanus Lounge (including a fine selection of “Street Couches”!)
  2. video footage of Bob from his numerous online and television appearances and
  3. a roster of keynote speakers including— but not limited to— Jake Dobkin, Lockhart Steele, Norman Oder and yours truly.

To clear up any confusion as to how to RSVP for this event you need only point and click your way over to the evite page we have erected for just this purpose. Be sure to indicate how many people will be in your party and if you care to speak.

This nook (which is located underneath the F train at 4th Avenue) is not a urinal.

That is all.

TOMORROW: A Few Things For Cat Lovers

Tomorrow Empty Cages Collective will be having an adoption event at NYC Pet Supplies in Park Slope, Brooklyn. Their finest cats and kittens of all sizes rescued from the streets of New York City are promised to be in attendance, so why not swing by and say hi? As I have written before, all of ECC’s cats and kittens have been spayed or neutered, vaccinated, dewormed, and tested for feline leukemia and FIV. There is a $75.00 adoption fee and all adoptions require an approved application. You can get a sneak peek of what awaits you tomorrow by pointing and clicking your way over to Empty Cages Petfinder page.

Back here in Greenpoint the ASPCA’s mobile clinic will be offering cheap/free spay and neutering at Petland Discounts starting at 7:00 a.m. As the flier clearly states this is purely a first come, first served affair. My advice: get there EARLY.

Last up, I have been woefully remiss about passing along these wonderful works of art available at District Dog. My favorite is the “Vomitron Series”. However, there are also plenty of offerings for all you dog lovers out there. Best of all is the price; they’re a mere $25.00 a pop! Check ’em out.
