From The New York Shitty Inbox: Live From The Bath Tub Races!

Hi Heather!

The bathtub races¬†were awesome. I went with my youngest son and oldest grandson, while we waited for his parents and new brother to pick us up. Even though we couldn’t stay for the whole event,¬† we had fun. There was good music & food. And the thought of tub racing was hysterical. Thought you’d like to see the photos… When my oldest son, wife and new baby picked us up, we found ourselves driving behind a Bat Mobile.


THIS WEEKEND: Bath Tub Races!

Now that fall is with us it is once again time for the Greenpoint Lion’s Club bath tub races. Not only will proceeds from this event benefit a number of local charities, but I can personally attest it is quite fun. I for one can only hope they bring back the Intercontinental Ballistic Tub, it was by far my favorite!

Check it out!

I wasn’t able to hang around and watch the bathtub races (as conducted by the Lions Club) but at the very least I saw my first (and to date only) intercontinental ballistic bathtub and made the acquaintance of Philip Ras*, the gent who was kind enough to give me the 411 about those memorial plaques at 80 Franklin Street!
