FiPS Bits: Kelvin's Slushies Rocked My World

 

Sure, the slushie would look nice next to that candle / photo via tieandtrade.com

Long gone are my days of Mountain Dew and Blue Flavor Slushies. This past weekend I went to the much loved/hated Food Truck Rally at Grand Army Plaza. It was here that I had a taste of HEAVEN in the form of a Kelvin Slush Slushie. 

Here's how it works: you choose a base slush (spicy ginger, citrus or tea) and add a fruit puree (there were many: white peach, strawberry, mango, raspberry, to name a few). I chose ginger with pink guava puree. It wasn't too sweet, and it didn't change the color of my tongue. You can get a small for $3.50 and a large for $1 more. With the weather getting colder, I'm not sure how long my new Slush crush will be oot and aboot, but you can track the truck HERE

Is Park Slope Educating a Neighborhood of Fatties? 

The Truffle Shuffle

Well Park Slope breeders, the state of New York is whispering under its breath that your kids are lard asses. The cause? Your neighborhood schools. According to a precious little tidbit in the New York Times, WNYC online SchoolBook blog, Park Slope schools are getting a big fat F for not providing the kiddies with the mandated 120 minutes of gym time a week.

Man Arrested For Subway Groping

This past Monday police arrested a man on 17th street between 10th and 11th Avenue for watching porn on his cell, pants unzipped. Queens resident Joshua Flecha, 32, had a stash of pot on him, and when the police realized that he looked like one of the gajillion police sketches that have emerged, they brought him in. He was picked out of a line-up from a woman who was sexually assaulted in May at the 8th avenue entrance of the 7th ave F train stop. This bust comes two weeks after 22 year-old Federico Chamorro Yax was arrested for two incidents of sexual assault, and one week after 26 year-old Adolfo Martinez was arrested in Sunset Park for groping a woman. You D-Bags are starting to drop like flies. 

Lastly - Did you guys hear that the NYPD just bumped the number of sexual attacks in Brooklyn since March up to TWENTY? They recently added six subway incidents that all took place in South BK. GEEZUS.

Boogieman Insurance: Why babysitters need to earn the same wage at night

A long-time trend among Park Slope parents is to pay babysitters less to watch their sleeping kids. They hire their regular sitter to arrive after the teeth are brushed and the stories read, paying her slightly less than usual. Or, they hire a less expensive sitter exclusively for nighttime gigs. Either way, this is uncool. Parents need to understand they are paying for the sitter’s time, not her level (or the kid’s level) of exertion. I was a babysitter in park slope for five years, until I had my own baby. A family once asked me to lower my rates at night. Another family said that they were "splurging" on my pricey nighttime sitting.
