Are We Still Talking About Babies in Bars?

Sigh. I think we've covered babies in bars on FIPS almost every year since FIPS was born. Sure, we realize people keep having babies and those people want to get the fuck out of their houses that smell slightly of poop and formula and have a beer in a public place in the midst of people who, one hopes, don’t smell of poop and formula. And maybe those people don’t know the etiquette? How about we post a laminated card over the bar next to the What-to-do-when-someone’s-choking-sign, or send out tip sheets with the buybuybaby coupons?
There’s been quite a bit of brouhaha in Park Slope in the past (the past) about selfish breeders and their drool-soaked offspring ruining the good times of selfish ballers who want to drink in the midst of people who, one hopes, don’t smell of poop and formula, are tall enough to see over a bar, and old enough to order a drink at one. Didn’t we kind of put this one to bed, though, or down for a nice nap, at least? Here in Park Slope, we got breeders, we got ballers, and everybody needs a damn drink. That’s universal.

Two Women Attacked Near de Blasio's 11th Street Home on Friday Night

Last Friday night, FIPS writer NineDaves was walking from the subway to his home on 11th Street, when he was stopped by the de Blasio police detail who warned him about walking alone with his cell phone out in full view. They went on to say that a woman was jumped by four 15-year-olds around 7-7:30 on 6th Ave and 12th St. According to the cops, "they beat her up good." De Blasio's cops heard the woman screaming and ran to help. They got one of the guys right away, but the others ran up toward the park, where they apparently attacked and mugged another woman before running into Junior's, a bodega on 12th Street and 8th Ave. According to a FIPS twitter follower, the clerk at Junior's dragged them outside where they were apprehended by cops in a patrol car.

Park Slope Craigslist Blotter

LOST: Cigarette case

It's a giant, beat up old leather case. It kind of looks like it's made for binoculars but was lost containing a pack of Parliaments. This is pretty cool so it's probably lost forever.  Sorry, man.

COMMUNITY: Littlefield

Littlefield is a venue in Gowanus that's been doing some pretty cool things lately. They are looking to fill spots for an event called "What can you do in 90 seconds?" and it's exactly what it sounds like. You have 90 seconds to entertain a crowd of 400 people. It doesn't pay, but if you're got some freaky hidden talent this could be pretty funny.

CASUAL ENCOUNTER: M4W

We generally stay away from the "Casual Encounter" section because it's like, how many cocks do you need me to look at? Actually, that's a lie. I look at them anyway. I just don't know what to say. This is a pretty standard Casual Encounter entry. Except that he is looking for a woman, not another dude. That's pretty rare. Change that though and you've got all the Casual Encounters we've been missing.
