From The New York Shitty Inbox: Much Ado About This Weekend

carynrose

Or would that be much to DO this weekend? If what I found in my inbox today is any indication there is a log going on this weekend. Mark writes:

Hey Miss Heather did you see this? Papacito’s is celebrating it’s pseudo-one year birthday and recently acquired liquor license. They’re inviting people to come celebrate with free food and tequila. Pretty cool!

Most cool indeed! Among the goodies promised are free tequila shots from 11:00 – 1:00 a.m. and live mariachi music. Check it out!

Detroit Rock City

If mariachi is not your cup of tea, a good friend of mine (and fabulous D.J.), The Professor, will be spinning an evening of “Motor City rock, soul, punk and psycho-funk” at Greenpoint’s very own Boulevard Tavern. Having known the Professor for some time I can attest to his outstanding taste in music. Go. You will not be disappointed!

This most intriguing item found its way to my inbox courtesy of the artist in question: Geralyn Shukwit. She writes (in an email entitled “not all that shitty”):

Join me for an exhibition of work created before the state cared about Williamsburg. Black and White prints of the waterfront, the streets and people of WillyB from 1998-2000.

Opening night party Wednesday October 28th from 6pm until we fall down or all the prints are sold, whichever comes first!

I have to admit: this sounds like a wonderful way to while away what is prognosticated to be a rainy, dreary Wednesday night. Check it out!

Opening night: Wednesday, October 28, from 6:00 – 9:00 p.m. (until all the prints are sold or everyone falls down)

On a related note: if you’re in the area and find yourself craving some musical entertainment (for a good cause) why not swing by NAG’s (Neighbors Allied for Good Growth) “Raise the Roof” benefit concert at Williamsburg’s own Music Hall? You can get the full 411 about this event (They Might Be Giants is slated to be the headliner) by clicking here.

Highlights From The Robot Monkey World Chimpionship: Part I

April 19, 2009 ·
Filed under: Greenpoint Magic, Williamsburg

Here is the first installment of last night’s Robot Monkey smack down brought to you by Dan Walker and t.b.d. New York Shitty Analysis: as the evening waxed on (and the contestants became more intoxicated— which I suppose should be expected with half-price Jameson and Absolut shots) the sportsmanship began to erode quite a bit. But as you will see this only served to make things all the more entertaining. Enjoy!

Brooklyn Ale House Vs. Mikey’s Hook Up

The Brooklyn Kitchen Crest Hardware Vs. Brooklyn Ale House

Brooklyn Ale House Vs. Brainewave Consulting

I will be uploading more highlights from this most pleasurable diversion tomorrow— so stay tuned!

2009 Robot Monkey World Chimpionship: And The Winner Is…

Number 9.

Man oh Manischewitz was the Williamsburg versus Greenpoint robot battle fierce last night! Greenpoint’s very own Dandelion Wine* made it to the quarter finals but alas 11211 prevailed. Follows is a slide show of the event for your Sunday morning entertainment. Enjoy!

More video footage will be  forthcoming later today— because you know what they say:

It doesn’t matter if you win or lose, it’s how you play the game.

And let’s just say the game was played very interestingly.

*Who will be featured in today’s New York Times. Mazel Tov!

P.S.: In somewhat-related news those of you who have been wondering what’s up with this lot next door to t.b.d.

lotforleasenys

It is no longer available. The owner of t.b.d signed a lease two weeks ago and they are creating an outdoor garden/annex. I have it per a very reliable source it will be up and running Memorial Day weekend. So mark your calendar!
