WHASSUP: THE FINAL EDITION

Well, this is it, FIPSters. My last edition of WHASSUP. Please—don't shed a tear. It's been a good ride. I told you to do some shit. You may, or may not have done said shit. That's a symbiotic relationship that we enjoyed and ain't nobody shedding tears over sybiosis. 

I leave you with no fanfare, just these sage words. Keep mining the hood for new cool shit to do. Get analog in this virtual world and introduce yourself to your neighbors, give your bartender an extra tip, buy a homeless dude a cup of coffee, smile at someone on the sidewalk or subway, honk less, help an old lady cross the road. Basically, participate in the world around you. New York can be an amazing adventure, or very closed off. It all depends on how you choose to approach it. There's no good reason for us all to be isolated. Sure we live on top of each other with very little space to call our own. Make the most of it because you chose it.

So, for the last time, WHASSUP? This is WHASSUP:

Thursday, 10/9, Jon Ronson Invites You To…An Evening of Public Shaming: This look into the human psyche will make you think twice before you call out a co-worker for yanking it in the restroom on company time. $10, 7pm doors, 7:30pm show

Friday, 10/10, Love Child, Dinosaur BBQ Brooklyn: I’m sure Love Child is excellent and musically relevant, but I really only give a shit about the mac and cheeze. Yes, that’s cheeze with a Z. FREE, 10pm

Saturday, 10/11, Lakeside’s Backyard Jamboree, Prospect Park: I hope you’re up for some cousin lovin’ because this shit-kicker of an afternoon promises to delight even the “citiest” of city folk with their pumpkin decorating, line dancing, crafts, and all manner of shindig-ery. 11am-5pm

FIPS Broken News: Holy Hate Crime at the Barclay's Center

 

Well here's something awful to report. Leonard Petlakh Executive Director of Kings Bay YM-YWHA was attacked last night in front of his children as he was leaving the Nets-Maccabi Tel Aviv game at the Barclay's Center last night.  

According to Sheepshead Bites, a Pro-Palestine rally entered the Barclay Center but was asked to leave by a Barclay's security team after being antagonistic to spectators. The group went outside and started chanting, "Free Palestine," and "You people are murderers." One of those protesters punched Petlakh in the face. The game was preceded by an event that celebrated the Friends of the Israel Defense Force and twelve wounded Israeli soldiers were participating in the event. 

The Kings Bay Y issued a statement saying that Petlakh was taken to Methodist Hospital where he was treated for a broken nose and lacerations under eye that required eight stitches. The attackers raced from the scene and the NYPD is investigating the incident as a hate crime. Luckily there were hundreds of people leaving the game and the incident was all caught on tape.

Caption This Park Slope Photo!

FIPS reader Lori sent in these photos of a scene she stumbled upon outside the Lowe's on 12th Street and 2nd Avenue. She wasn't sure if the possum was playing dead, really dead, or just wasted on Lime-a-Ritas. You've got a lot to work with here, so give us your best captions in the comments.
