OW: Man Stabbed on the G Train 

Photo via ABC Local

A 29 (or 30) year-old man was stabbed on the G train (or on the G train platform) somewhere in Park Slope around 10PM on Monday night. The details are a bit vague, depending on whether you read the Post or ABC Local, but both news outlets report that the victim was with his brother when they engaged in a fight with two other men on the train (or platform). Punches were thrown before one of the men pulled a knife and stabbed the victim in the back and leg. The man has been hospitilized in stable condition, and as of the last reporting, the two men who engaged in the fight were being questioned.

Cool Or Not Cool: Starbucks May Hire Bathroom Attendants, Require Receipts to Use Loo?

While in Istanbul for my honeymoon earlier this year, I noticed that there were a lot of Starbucks. On one occasion I desperately needed a bathroom, so I did what I do in New York: went into one of them. Imagine my surprise when I found out one needs a security code printed on a receipt to gain access. It was the one moment in which I was truly, painfully homesick.

Well, it looks like we may be taking a cue from our international friends. A new rumor claims that NYC area Starbucks will soon take similar action, either in the way of receipt codes or bathroom bouncers*.

Hot Park Slope Dad Or Lesbian? You Decide!

Do you ever find yourself innocently writing in your Moleskine journal (deal with it), when a sexually-ambiguous breeder wearing crocs gets all up in your piece? Not a day goes by that we don’t wander around Park Slope wondering whether or not these fleece-clad yuppies are lesbians or DILFs. It's definitely making us all kinds of confused about where we fall on the Kinsey scale.

YOU "DOG ACTIVISTS" ARE OUT OF YOUR FUCKING MINDS

Okay, Park Slope Dog Mafia: You people just lost your right to EVER bitch about another Park Slope Parent again. Your behavior on FIPS yesterday was SO self-righteous, SO judgmental, SO obnoxious, that you made the average PSP-subscribing, allergy-inventing, ADD-overdiagnosing, Co-op-shift-dodging, Waitress-hounding, Blue Ribbon-ruining, whiny-uptight Park Slope Mother look like a Brownsville Rasta.

Here I was, so proud that our blog had actually helped this
distressed man find his stolen dog, that I was actually stupid enough to go to our comments section to seek out a little celebratory warmth. I was hoping for
the finale of Snoopy Come Home, but instead I got the Park Slope Director's Cut: You know, the one where Linus's douchebag, Ralph-Nader-voting grandparents crash the celebration and call Sally an irresponsible cunt.

Check out this heartless bastard:

Park Slope Gets Its Second Swedish Espresso Bar

The owners of Konditori, a Swedish espresso bar on 5th Avenue near Degraw, just opened a second location on 7th ave between 4th and 5th street, where pet food and supply store 4 and a Tail was once located.

Do you think their coffee bars are decorated exactly like all of our apartments
