Dog-e-Dog’s 2nd Annual Howl-O-Ween Dog Costume and Trick Contest proved to be yet another doggone success. The event took place this past Saturday at McCarren Park. Owners from all across Brooklyn, Queens and Manhattan came in droves with their pooches in tow, ready to show judges their most creative pet costumes and training chutzpah. Continue reading →
To wake up at 6:30 am on a Saturday, you must be nuts, you say? Maybe I am. But I woke up hella early because I was going on the Epic Bike Ride! Just a quick rundown: it’s 40 miles, from Williamsburg to the Rockaways, taking the coastal route of Brooklyn.
Epic Bike Ride was organized by the Brooklyn Greenway Initiative. These are the fine folks who have been working with the DOT on the Brooklyn Waterfront Greenway, which is a 14-mile landscaped route, physically separated from traffic with separate paths for pedestrians and cyclists. When complete, the greenway will connect neighborhood parks and open spaces from Greenpoint to Bay Ridge. IMAGINE! Oh, the places we’ll go! Continue reading →
We tend to tune out signage because it’s in our face and everywhere but on closer look we can discover interesting collages with distorted and out of proportion deli meats or utterly strange images like singing hams.
If you’re a longtime reader, you know that the website was once called THE Greenpointers. Greenpointers.com was a laser pointer website, originally. When it became available, they tried to charge an arm and a leg for the domain, but I talked them down. Both sites are now mirrored.
Jon got this brand spankin’ new camera and it shoots this green focusing light out. It made for some fun shots around the hood. He is holding two ice cream pints in his hand. He has his priorities straight.
Christmas trees are so dramatic and vain. Cut me down and put all these lights and ornaments on me so everyone oohs and aahs when they see me! And your stupid cats want to get up all in me, but they can’t – what losers. Adorn me with all those fancy presents and make sure you water me four times per day. When you leave – turn the lights off or I might burn down your entire house. After all that, chip me and leave me for compost! But you can’t get rid of me, because I’m going to leave sharp needles all around your house that will cut your toes all summer. Merry Christmas!
