Aside from one of the co-owners of t.b.d. and I playing dueling cameras (as seen above) it was a most enjoyable and successful FUNdraising night at t.b.d. The Greenpoint Reformed Church’s Soup Kitchen/Food Pantry garnered no less than $1,470.00 to feed our fellow Greenpointers in need.

Mazel tov!

Although I have written about this already, I feel compelled to post a reminder that this Thursday, December 3, starting at 7:00 p.m. t.b.d. will be hosting a fundraiser for a very good cause: the Greenpoint Reformed Church’s soup kitchen and food pantry! Along with an evening of trivia there will be a raffle for prizes from such establishments as Cafe Grumpy, Mousey Brown Salon, Dandelion Wine, Word Books and much, much more. Check it out!

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.

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!

THIS WEEKEND: Two Oktoberfests To Consider

September 30, 2009 ·
Filed under: 11222, Greenpoint, Greenpoint Brooklyn, Greenpoint Magic 

After this post I will be signing off for awhile so as to get a little housework done before my inlaws arrive tomorrow morning. In anticipation of their visit I have been researching activities for us to enjoy. The Chile Pepper Fiesta (October 3) is a distinct possibility, Atlantic Antic (October 4) is a must-do— as are the following two items.

Sponsors Wanted: Robot Monkey Chimpionship

Dan, the man behind the robots writes (in regards to this post):

Guess who’s coming to Greenpoint on the 26th?!  I attached the sponsorship info if you know of any wise individuals or businesses that want to sponsor a team.  See you there, I hope.  I owe you and your man so much for helping me last time.  I’ll buy you drinks at the very least.

Mister Heather was a hero at the last event. He donated AA batteries and a screwdriver (or two) so as ensure the hilarity would proceed. And it did! We felt it was the right thing to do. It was a matter of Greenpoint pride.

And yet despite the Williamsburg Versus Greenpoint Robot Monkey Wars being heavily seeded in our favor, the Garden Spot still lost. But we did so with style, a prodigious use of profanity and an utter disregard for good sportsmanship. This made me proud. For this reason I am going to hustle the $50.00 necessary to make team NEW YORK SHITTY happen! I don’t care if we win or lose— I just want to give my good friends in Manhattan a few compelling reasons why they should stay on their side of the river.

Here’s how you, fellow Brooklynites, can too!

THIS WEEKEND: Robot Monkey Chimpionship II

Remember this spring’s Robot Monkey Chimpionship between Greenpoint and Williamsburg? Well, if you don’t you can refresh your memory by clicking here. I attended and had a hell of a time. Therefore, I am pleased as punch to announce that this Saturday, September 26, starting at 4:00 p.m. the second chapter of the Robot Monkey saga will begin with…

Tip to the wise: be sure to stick around for the end. The contestants get much more interesting after they have been drinking for awhile.

After I won the hat contest this evening (at tbd and gave props to Pa Heather— who was present— and to whom I dedicated the bottle of Maker’s Mark I won while wearing this) I encountered this select piece of street seating in front of the Viridian on the way home.

Highlights From The Robot Monkey World Chimpionship: Part III

As promised, here is the third installment of live footage I shot from last weekend’s Robot Monkey World Chimpionship. This, the final segment, features the rules of the game, some good-natured shenanigans and four of Greenpoint’s finest businesses waging war against Williamsburg and in one case, each other:

  • Brooklyn Standard Vs. Kellogg Diner
  • Papasito’s Vs. Number 9 Lighting
  • Dandelion Wine vs. t.b.d.

Once again Lily is in good form. They should make her a robot monkey coach. Seriously. Enjoy!

I suspect I speak for many who were present at this event when I say more such tournaments should be held. Bushwick against Williamsburg or Greenpoint immediately come to mind. Are you listening out there, Dan?

Or: Lily Speaks

This installment features Lily Peachin of Dandelion Wine battling it out in the quarter finals against d.b.a. Although Dandelion Wine lost (and pretty badly at that) her running commentary through out the game and increasing frustration (who knew she took her robot monkeys so seriously?) makes this worth viewing. So be sure to watch the second half. Funny stuff!

You can see more footage from this event by clicking here.
