Cardwell Beach is Giving Away Free Digital Work This Summer!

Here is a great opportunity for a local business or startup!

Cardwell Beach, a Brooklyn creative solutions and digital agency, is spending it’s Fridays going where very few marketing agencies go during the summer: to the office. Cardwell Beach’s Summer Fridays contest will award free marketing services to one deserving New York City company. The grand prize includes in-house consultations every Friday in June, as well as free website development or other marketing solutions that are specifically tailored for the winner’s business needs.

But wait, there is a catch!

Cardwell Beach is particularly interested in working with a growing business in New York City that sees itself as a positive influence in the community. The business doesn’t need to be a nonprofit, but it does have to care about more than dollar signs. Cardwell Beach is an innovator in the advertising and digital world, and it wants to partner with a company that shares its enthusiasm for collaboration and teamwork.

Here is how it works:

Head over to Cardwell Beach’s Facebook page, click LIKE, and fill out a submission form. Every type of company or organization—from community gardens to new iPhone apps— is encouraged to apply.

Cardwell Beach’s team of designers, producers, developers, copywriters, and strategists is an eclectic and dedicated group that has helped launch major campaigns for E*TRADE, The NFL, Hercules Trophy, Lumineye, and more. Now they are looking to help one great NYC brand truly take off this summer!

So, what are you waiting for? Believe it or not, summer is right around the corner!

Calling the low, the weak, and the ungodly! Gather near, ye faithless, ye mentally infirm and spiritually bereft!

Led by the evangelically infamous Good Reverend Doctor Professor Elucius Clay, this sideshow of cautionary tales will horrify (watch as Stitch the Geek mutilates his own flesh!), titillify (surrender to the undulant charms of the reigning Miss Coney Island, Cherry Delight, and the bosomosity of Miss Direction), and flummox (recoil at Bobby Phobia’s feats of physiology), all to the blood-stirring musicianing of Texas Red (“The Gypsy Fiddler”) and Ratty Mousebites & Miz E of The Hot Sardines.

The Little Top Circus & Medicine Show
Saturday, 2/23 10pm doors
Union Hall
702 Union Street @ 5th Avenue, Brooklyn (directions)

KITTENS! KITTENS! KITTENS!

These scrappy little kittens need homes ASAP! THey were trapped with mom for a TNP (trap-neuter-release). The kittens have conjunctivitis, fleas, and ringworm (all treatable). Unfortunately caretaker can not take them into her home because she has several of her own cats and these conditions are contagious. The hospital cannot hold onto them because of ringworm, but is willing to provide treatment for them. These kittens originally came from Pinkys colony and will be released back by Sunday. Please contact Park Slope Veterinary Center at 718-369-7387 if someone can foster, or please forward email to others. Note: tuxedos are the best and most cuddliest cats…

She rolls on her back, loves belly rubs and will purr in your arms. How can you not adopt her? Contact Park Slope Veterinary Center at 718-369-7387 if you’re interested in Pinky.

The Point to The Slope

Jeez, just trying to catch up on all that has happened in the nabe since I been gone is sucking up my first back-to-work day. Not that I’m complaining.


The Brooklyn Paper reported about the G train being officially and permanently extended to Church Avenue as was rumored a couple of months ago. This means the ability to go from Greenpoint to Park Slope just became a one train ride reality. I’m assuming this is not going to actually start until 2010 when they start working on the Culver Viaduct.

But I’m still going to bitch and moan that the G doesn’t go to Forest Hills. It drives me fucking insane.
