WHASSUP: TAIL END EDITION

Well, folks, it’s getting to the tail end of a glorious summer, packed with great events and gorgeous weather. I implore you not to waste these waning days of outdoor barbecues, beers on the roof, concerts in the park, and weekend adventures because winter is just aching to swing in and kick NYC right in the dick.

This week has it all: music, food, comedy, and even some learning. You can’t go wrong with anything on this list so pick and choose wisely in your search for entertainment. It’s gonna be a good one.

So, WHASSUP, you ask for the umtienth time? Here’s WHASSUP:

Thursday, 8/21, Storewide Tasting Night, Whole Foods BK: Come hungry! Last week, on a food run for meatless balls and store brand coconut popsicles, I had the pleasure of stumbling upon the weekly Thursday tasting night. It was a food bonanza. I threw my list out the window and treated Whole Foods like an all you can eat buffet. FREE, 5pm-6pm

Friday, 8/22, Forty-Six Candles: An Evening in Which John Hughes Characters Grow the Fuck Up, Union Hall: John Hughes was responsible for some pretty prolific characters in movie history. This parody gives you a look at your favorite characters all growed-up. Think the Breakfast Club, just overweight and menopausal. $8, 7:30pm doors, 8pm show

The Brooklyn Cyclones Is Hosting A Park Slope Night

Hey Coney Island, get out those organic artisan hot dogs and kale-laced sauerkraut on gluten free buns, make sure you don't serve anything from Eden Organics, and make sure you have plenty of stroller parking (have I missed any stereotypes) cause our 'hood is coming down your way this Sunday. That's right FIPS'ters, Park Slope Parents is hosting a Park Slope Night at MCU Park. Here's how the evening is described on the e-flyer:

Enjoy a Brooklyn Cyclones game at MCU Park and celebrate historic Park Slope and the Battle of Brooklyn. A portion of the proceeds will benefit the Old Stone House & Washington Park. 

Wait? What the what? There's so much going here. Historic Park Slope and the Battle of Brooklyn? AND a Cyclones game? I'm intrigued (and confused), tell me more about how the ill-fated and largest Revolutionary Battle of Brooklyn (known to the rest of the world as the Battle of Long Island) and Park Slope Night are intertwined.

When Harry Met Sally Met Brooklyn Hipsters...

Despite technically taking place across the river, “When Harry Met Sally…” exemplifies the yuppie romantic comedy many hope to live out in Brooklyn: on again/off again hook ups, dinner parties, over-thought opinions about how the two sexes interact and the occasional racy conversation about orgasms. The only significant difference between us and the characters in the movie is that, thanks to Meg Ryan, our generation knew women were fully capable of faking an orgasm before we knew what an orgasm was.

Who Gives A Shit: Realtor Giveaways

Image via DNAInfo/Serena DaiBack in July, Daily Intelligencer posted about a Park Slope condo that was enticing buyers with the promise of a free Tesla. Now comes word from DNAInfo about a Williamsburg condo giving a "fixies." This got the FIPS wack pack thinking about what other kinds of freebies might lure people to the Slope:

Felicia: A line waiter, someone who goes ahead of you everywhere, to get you a space in line (table @ Talde, yoga class prime floor spot, etc.). 

Adam: A Masters' Degree.

AJ: A reserved parking stall. Anywhere in a 4 block radius from the mansion you call home.

KtrsBklyn: A book deal.
