[My Favorite Park Slope...]: Place to get my hair did

 

As a dude, I have this thing where I refuse to pay more than $15 for a haircut. It's something I learned form my dad, who would take me and my brother to the barber when we were kids for monthly buzz cuts and lollipops. Dad never paid more than $40 for three haircuts -- and sometimes, that even included a shave. So when looking for a place to get my haircut, price is the #1 factor.

Granted, I've never had one of those expensive haircuts in my life, so I could totally be missing out. But since I'm almost 30 and kind of losing my hair anyway, I just don't need more than a 1" buzzer on the sides and a quick scissor cut.

Introducing the winner of our most unreliable Brooklyn Bus: B61

The B61 bus sucks. Here are the hard facts: The B61 bus is late 43% of the time. During rush hour, 42% of the buses are so crowded they don’t even stop, and 12% of the time two buses in a row don’t stop. If you are looking to travel between Park Slope and Red Hook the Ikea shuttle bus is actually not a bad idea

Park Slope Storytelling Show Includes Burlesque!

Park Slope is becoming the Bleeker Street of storytelling series, I tell you what. These shows are popping up all over our neighborhood, and I couldn't be happier.

We've got The Story Collider for our science fix, Bare Stories for all things dirrrrty and now a blog-turned-storytelling show called And I Am Not Lying, which is the first storytelling show I've heard of that includes burlesque (do you have burlesque, The Moth?) 

Join storytellers Jeff Simmermon (This American Life), Brad Lawrence (The Moth GrandSLAM Champ) and Cyndi Freeman (Wonder Woman: A How-To Guide for Little Jewish Girls) for a night of storytelling, comedy, sideshow acts and well-placed tassles. I've seen these people perform live. You won't be disappointed.

And I Am Not Lying's next show is this Saturday, December 10th at Union Hall. Doors are at 8PM and tickets are $10, which you can buy here
