Manicure Santa

Meet “Manicurist Santa”. As you can see he is busy plying his trade on a ring-wearing, disembodied hand with talon-like nails. This is without argument one of the most horrifying things I have ever seen. Ever.

Closing on a related note (of Santa and the stuff of nightmares), looks like Santacon will be kicking off at McCarren Park┬áthis upcoming Saturday. I wonder how much the Parks Department and/or Open Space Alliance North Brooklyn (one cannot really separate the two) got in exchange for green-lighting this shitshow? In any case, I find it darkly amusing that a town hall meeting regarding quality of life issues, crime and our public parks has scarcely come to pass and this somehow passed muster. I suppose when money is on the table, one’s attitude becomes more “flexible” about such things. Ho! Ho! Ho!

Williamsburg Gentrification Watch: Biergarten Brunch With Santa!

It’s a little known fact but Mister Heather was once “Santa” at a local business in Greenpoint. Granted, he was not drunk while discharging his duties (or sported a salmon under his beard) but he needed a stiff one shortly thereafter. For this reason I find the following event, which comes courtesy of north Brooklyn’s very own Town Square, truly innovative!


BEER AND BRUNCH WITH SANTA! Per the above flier:

…What’s that sound? Is it the jingle of Santa’s bells? Guess what kids? Santa is coming to Williamsburg for a delicious brunch at Radegast Hall & Biergarten!

December 12, 2009; 11:00 – 1:00 p.m.
