Hello, Miss Heather –

This is Samara writing you. – I worked on the trivia fundraisers for the Greenpoint Soup Kitchen last year that you so kindly donated prints to.

I’m writing you with a request to give a shout out on NewYorkShitty for an event we’re having at the Greenpoint Shul.

It’s a kosher wine tasting in conjunction with Roebling Liquors Inc. and a vegetarian food pairing with a wine expert in celebration of Hanukkah. It will take place Friday, December 3rd just after Kabbalat Shabbat services which begin at 7:00 p.m at the Greenpoint Shul (108 Noble St.) We welcome donations to support the event (, click on “Donate”).

I’ve attached a jpg of the invitation. If you could post this, we’d greatly appreciate it.

Please come if you can…

Duly posted! I would also like to add that not only is the Rabbi who presides over this establishment, Maurice Appelbaum, an amazingly nice guy but the very building itself is an absolute treasure! Follows is a slide show I assembled last year to give you an idea of what I am talking about. Enjoy!

As many of you are aware Hanukkah kicks off this Sunday, December 21. Follow are a couple of events our fellow friends of the book might find of interest from Greenpoint and beyond.

First up, Greenpoint’s very own Congregation Ahavas Israel will be kicking things off a celebration this upcoming Sunday starting at 5:00 p.m. For the price of your $20.00 admission ($10.00 for the young ‘uns) you’ll get live music, dancing, dreydel games and latkes for your delectation. Yum!

Those of you seeking festivities of the more unconventional kind (or simply like anything featuring Mexican bandits) will undoubtedly find this item (which yours truly found posted in the door of Christina’s Restaurant.

The details about this revue are pretty scant on Heeb Magazine’s web site. However, I’d gladly fork over $20.00 for an hour of free margaritas and to see anyone calling themselves Strip Dreidel and the Kinky Jews out of sheer principle. What’s more, this sounds like a helluva lot of fun!

UPDATE, 4:50 p.m.: I received an email from one of the wizards over at Heeb Magazine with a most interesting clarification regarding this event. Brian writes:

Hey, you guys.

I really appreciate the plug for our party. Thanks a mill. Let me know if you guys want to come, and I’ll get you on our list.

Though I should clarify: “Strip Dreidel with Kinky Jews” isn’t a band. Rather we are actually having some hornball kosher kids play a game that involves, yes, taking their clothes off.

And there will be gift bags galore. Free Silver Bullet vibrators from Babeland. Get there early to nab ’em.

Thanks again, Shitty people!

It doesn’t get much better than this folks.
