Sure you are proud of your kid and enjoy sunshine in the bleachers while chowing down on a hot dog, but sometimes magic happens when adults participate in kid’s sporting events, as the video below proves.
The Greenpoint Little League will be holding registrations for boys and girls ages 4 to 12 this Saturday, March 8th – 3 to 6pm and Sunday, March 9th – 3 to 5pm at The Cage (62-40 Metropolitan Ave, Middle Village) Continue reading →
Soul Imperial is starting a new party series tonight Saturday 3/1 at Broken Land (105 Franklin St) from 10pm-2am. They will be playing a mix of throwback hits from all decades with some current tunes as well. This is a continuation of the party they used to have at K&M for over 5 years (and another 3 years at Royal Oak before that). They sent us this mix to give us an idea of what to expect at this hopefully regular party night in Greenpoint. Loving it! Continue reading →
The closest I ever got to art at summer camp was making friendship bracelets. Art camp didn’t exist when I was a kid – oh the things I would have made!
Give your child the opportunity to make and learn about REAL art this summer at Tumbleweeds Art Camp, taught by local teaching artist Hayley Youngs.
Located at the beautiful Awakening NY wellness center, Tumbleweeds Art Camp will run for 3 weeks this July 2014 for children 4-8 years old.
Each day campers work on structured art projects with one-on-one attentions, plus free art time to find their inner Picasso. Painting, sculpture, printmaking, fiber art and recycled art are just some examples of what your child will be getting into. Snack time, lunchtime and outdoor playtime will take place nearby at the McCarren Park Playground.
Don’t wait. Summer camps fill up quickly in North Brooklyn.

While searching for accessories on KRRB for Greenpointers’ new office, I found this bobcat pillow. I wasn’t aware that “they” ever made bobcat pillows, but apparently “they” don’t anymore, which makes this a rare item.
The best website ever made about bobcats says that, “bobcats have five toes on the forefoot, but the fifth toe does not leave a mark in the ground because it is raised high up on the foot.”
Yes I need fish tacos, a bikini, the limbo, beer, sun and warmth! The Diamond Bar can provide a few of these wonderful things that remind of us summer and help us of forget about this dreadful winter we all wish was long in the past.
This Saturday (2/15) from 4-8pm join a handful of summery local vendors at The Diamond Bar (43 Franklin St) and forget for a little bit that it’s still February in New York.
And don’t forget to wear you Hawaiian shirt – duh!
Tonight, there’s an interesting event at Trash Bar called Church Night. It’s variety show and satire on a church service that features burlesque, music, comedy, an organist in drag, sing-a-long hymns, and a “shots and tots communion.” It starts at 8:00 and it’s FREE. The group that puts it on is based out of DC, click here for more about them.
