Happy Friday Greenpointers! This should be another spectacular early spring-like weekend and a great time to be out-and-about.
If you want to get involved with local politics this election season, Greenpoint native Kristina Naplatarski who is running for District Leader will hold a petitioning event at Konditori (687 Manhattan Ave.) on Saturday at 10 a.m. with volunteers to collect signatures in order to get on the ballot for the June election.
And if you want to support woman-owned businesses, on Sunday the co-working space The Wing (75 North 7th St), hosts an International Women’s Day Market & Open House starting at 2 p.m.
