So everyone has seen the Dick Chicken graffiti all over the neighborhood. It’s got a cult following and even a ‘spinoff’ with Pussy Ham. Go check out the private preview of the Dick Chicken exhibition ‘GIRLS & SNACKS‘ at 3rd Ward’s new space before it opens to the public at 7 pm. Plus enjoy complimentary cocktails & Colt 45 to the beats of DJ Alden Fonda.
Please send RSVPs to firstname.lastname@example.org.

And don’t forget to check out my Halloween in the Hood post for EVERYTHING to do in Greenpoint on Halloween night. I keep adding to it, so keep checking back!
You seem to love the neighborhood, yet you are promoting someone who defaces private property around Greenpoint. It's not artistic or clever. I'm disappointed in a normally great blog about our 'hood.
You're actually right. I agree with you.
But I come from such a backgroud with people tagging up around the hood, I guess it doesn't really bother me. I actually feel like if there wasn't graffiti it would feel so white bread.
I'm torn between it being wrong and being ok with it.
