Yours truly stumbled upon this rather curious find in front of Tommy’s Tavern last night. Another fellow taking shots of it noted:

I wonder if someone stole the baby and simply dumped the stroller?

A woman walking her dog (and noting our interest) found this rather disturbing. Thus, I decided to speak up and mollify her concerns:

That looks like a rather nice stroller. I’m surprised no one has taken it and tried to sell it. As for why it is here, maybe the baby snatchers are to blame? It’s a somewhat obscure Monty Python sketch. Look it up.

They said they would. In the meantime here it is. Skip to 2:33 if you must. The whole clip is worth watching if you ask me.

This item (which I presume was the handiwork of a Mets fan) can be found outside of Tommy’s Tavern.

Greenpoint Halloween Watch: Zombie Crawl &

As All Hallow’s Eve draws closer I feel compelled to pass along a couple of ways you can while away the evening and have a ghoulishly good time. Here they are!

Greenpoint’s very own Zombie Crawl will kick off at 8:00 p.m. at the Diamond Bar. Judging from the parade of festively fettled (and intoxicated) zombies that besieged my block last year, I’d say this is the thing to do. NOTE: there will be drink specials at each participating bar for those who are clad in zombie attire.

Just steps away from the Mark Bar, Tommy’s Tavern (AKA: “the murder bar”) will be having an evening of “blood, guts and shakin’ butts” starting at 10:00 p.m. Now I dare any of you not to get behind that!
