J. Crew Coming to Park Slope??

Yesterday, Racked dropped the bombshell that J. Crew will be opening a Park Slope location in August (along with a Williamsburg location and a long-rumored Cobble Hill store). Whut the whut?! Apparently, this tidbit was hidden in a WWD profile of Bird owner Jennifer Mankins. She is buddy-buddy with J. Crew chairman and CEO Mickey Drexler, who is quoted in the feature story:

"Jen's my Williamsburg connection. She's probably one of the reasons we're opening there," Drexler told the paper. Sounds like an independent boutique is inadvertently ushering in national chainsWWD adds: "The two still have lunch on the regular, when she brings the self-proclaimed 'Manhattan-centric' Drexler to the cool restaurants in Brooklyn."

The Williamsburg location seems to be set for Wythe Avenue, down the street from the incoming Whole Foods. No word on the Slope location. Got any guesses?

Park Slope Craigslist Blotter

FREE TATTOO ARTIST

This is a pretty neat post if you're having a children's birthday party soon. Although it could be a prank and this person is just going to come over and draw dicks on all the kid's faces. That would still be pretty worth it though right? Great story for when they get older.

FREE: Adult Toys

On Monday there was a post for Free Toys and I clicked it praying they'd be sex toys. Sadly, they were children's toys. Silly rabbit, sex toys aren't for kids. There weren't even pictures so I x-ed out and moved on. Today our dreams came true though. A wall of vibrators. The poster will even deliver them. That's just how bad they want them gone. "Just get them out of here! And by here I mean my body. They're inside me right now. "

Fifth Ave BID Wants YOU to Design Their Logo

Image via facebook.com/parkslopefifthavenueCalling all wannabe graphic artists! Yeah, you, in the back corner of the Tea Lounge. The Park Slope Fifth Ave Business Improvement District (aka, BID, aka, the stretch of 5th Ave between Flatbush and 18th Steet) is holding a contest to redesign their logo. They would like the logo to reflect what they consider is the Fifth Ave area: "a vibrant mix of independently-owned shops, world-class restaurants and popular nightlife spots." I guess they're looking for a hipster drinking craft beer, pushing a stroller, while eating Blue Ribbon?

WHASSUP: Easter Edition

Happy almost Easter, peep munchers. As you gear up for a diabetic coma of jelly bean proportions, I suggest you get out the house and live it up in the slope. Sunday may be the day for egg hunting and church goin', but there are six other days worthy of your attention, jam packed with like—totally fun shit.  

Which events will you be attending this week? Which events will you not be caught dead at? Find your voice and tell a brother. I just want you to have fun.

WHASSUP?  WWJD?  Read below and I'll answer both: 

Thursday, 4/17, North of Nashville, Union Hall: I absolutely despise country music but, on the off chance that any of you want to hear melifluous tales of the unrequited love of a man and his pickup truck, I thought I’d hock this event. Hats and boot are accepted, but you have to check your spurs at the door. $10, Doors 8pm, Show 9pm

Friday, 4/18, Easter is for Lovers Party, Babeland: A rabbit workshop—how apropos. There’s nothing like preempting the resurrection by heading to the neighborhood porn shop and learning a thing or two about pleasuring oneself. FREE, 7pm

Friday, 4/18-Sunday 4/20, Brooklyn Folk Festival, The Bell House: This shit is so big I have you covered for the whole damn weekend. It's time for the 6th Annual Brooklyn Folk Fest.  My hankering for a banjo is so intense right now. $75 (3 day pass), may purchase days individually
