TOMORROW: Inflatable Art & More

There is going to be a number of wonderful ways to while away this upcoming three day weekend here in north Brooklyn. Follows are a couple of art-related events I found of particular interest scheduled for tomorrow, January 16th. Give one (or both) of  ’em a whirl!

Tomorrow, January 16, from 6:00 – 9:00 p.m. 3rd Ward will be hosting a one-night exhibition of inflatable sculpture. In addition to a 3,000 square foot space teeming with air-filled goodness live music by DJ Tanner, complementary drinks and a crash course on how to make your own inflatable art work is promised. I for one think this sounds like a LOT of fun. If you think so too you should RSVP via email at events (at) 3rdward (dot) com.*

Next up, Hidden People and a few friends will be performing at Papa B Studios. The incredibly wallet-friendly $3.00 cover fee will not only buy you an evening of musical entertainment, but you’ll also get to savor the photographic stylings of Jonathan Fasulo. I’m not certain if this one man show will feature any work from his “mustached babies” series, but for a mere three bucks it’s well worth making the trek to find out!

Stay tuned, I have more Martin Luther King weekend goodness to share!

A Little Holiday Shopping

Filed under: Bushwick, Greenpoint Magic, Williamsburg 

After spending at least five hours in the kitchen yesterday and knowing full well I will be doing the same today suffice it to say yours truly is more than a little unmotivated. In any case follows are few upcoming holiday shopping events which might be of interest.

I have been long remiss in giving Tommy and Roy (AKA: the Alter boys) a shout out. Today I wish to correct this egregious oversight on my part by passing along the deets about their upcoming “Thanksgiving Weekend Sale”. And oh yeah, pointing out that I am totally in love with this item which I found on their web site. Check it out!

This item comes courtesy of Bitchcakes. Cafe Grumpy will be hosting another “Hearts & Crafts” affair this holiday season. Hopefully I’ll make it to this one. If the wares for sale are even a fraction as nifty as their flier I am certain I will NOT be disappointed!

But back to events I have attended in previous years.

I purchased some incredibly fun items last year’s holiday craft fair. I will probably do so again this year. Take my word for it: this event is worth schlepping over to 195 Morgan Avenue.
