brokeassTHUMBI was approached a couple months ago by none other than the man behind the guides and web site, Stuart Schuffman, to write a piece for his weekly “Broke Ass of the Week” column. At long last  (Tuesday, December 1 at 2:00 a.m., to be precise) I finally tendered my response. Things get done at a glacial pace at Chez Shittybut they do get done!

Long story made short, as of this afternoon it is up. I lavish a lot of the love on the ‘hood best known as the Garden Spot of the Universe. It is well-deserved. Sorry Williamsburg, it’s our time to shine. Check it out!

P.S.: Speaking of Black Rabbits, I’ve been meaning to pass along an amusing tale of petty larceny that came to pass at our local watering hole by the same name.

cardholder

I am certain a number of you who have patronized this establishment have noticed the above card holder. It was a “housewarming” gift to the proprietor, Kent, from his wife. What you might not have noticed was around this time last year it went MIA. Well, one day this spring when Kent was opening shop he spied something in the mailbox. Whoever had filched this item experienced remorse (or found this item not to jibe with his— or her— home decor) and saw fit to return it. If this humble card holder could talk I bet it would have a very interesting story to tell about its nine month hiatus!
