Punk Rope’s “Skip for Syria’s Children” Charity Event (9/26)

skip for Syria's childrenThe tragedies faced by Syrians now turned refugees is undeniable as many families have fled their homeland going anywhere that would accept them openly. As more and more families are displaced, it is nice to know that organizations, such as Punk Rope Games, are making an effort to provide emergency medical services for Syrian refugees. In the past, Punk Rope Games have been distinguished by hilarious costumes, wacky fitness challenges, rope jumping, and good sportsmanship. They are a celebration of play, fitness, and community and are a welcome departure in substance and style from most fitness competitions.

This year, they are combining what they are known for with a humanitarian cause.

Punk Rope’s founder, Tim Haft, has decided to donate 100% of the profits from the event’s registration fees and merch sales to the valiant efforts of the International Rescue Committee (IRC) to provide humanitarian aid to the Syrian refugees. The 7th Annual Punk Rope Games will take place on Sat, Sept 26 from 11:30am-2pm at Newtown Barge Playground. Continue reading

A Sunday Evening With a Burmese Twist Inside Sunview Luncheonette

bar_lucky_number_greenpoint_rdbIt was the final Sunday evening of August and, whilst most of the city was recovering from another scorching weekend, in a hidden corner of Greenpoint things were only  just starting to warm up. The venue was Sunview Luncheonette, the charming former diner perched on the Nassau side of McGolrick Park. The event was a Burmese supper pop-up by Lucky Number, a tasty new enterprise masterminded by creative duo Tyler Drosdeck and Michael Sablan.

Michael, a talented chef who has previously cooked at Mission Chinese and Northeast Kingdom, is on a quest is to bring Burmese cuisine to NYC (of which there is currently surprisingly little). “We’re not yet ready to open a full-on restaurant”, he tells me, “but a pop-up is a great way to take the temperature and gauge our audience.” Continue reading
