After last month’s resounding success, The Greenpoint Soup Kitchen is doing it again this Thursday with another pub quiz! This month’s proceeds will go, in full, to the benefit of The Red Cross Haiti Relief. Please come show your support and contribute to the emergency relief and recovery efforts for a people devastated by the earthquake in Haiti. $5 to participate, with ALL money going to The Red Cross.
The G is *still* on it’s bullshit shuttle bus kick this weekend so why not take a real bus ride into nearby Queens for a hot cocoa crawl? Blog Mommy Poppins gives you 5 great hot chocolate joints and a couple of them are super close, they’d be a quick ten or fifteen minute bus ride. I’ve personally been to both Sweetleaf and Aubegine Cafe and recommend both.
