Wicked Spoon Yogurt Making A Move

The other day we received a frantic email from FiPS reader MJ:

The wicked spoon next to c town that shares the space with atomic wings -- is it gone forever or just be revamped? the counter is gone. went to go pick some up for my dude and they were closed and the counter was completely gone for the yogurt place. waaaaaah.

MJ: According to the Wicked Spoon website, they're packing up shop and moving to Manhattan, where the city folks aren't satisfied with only having Pinkberry, Tutti Fruitti, Flurt, Yogurtland, Orange Leaf and so on. Here's what I recommend: wipe your tears and take your hot, nerdy boyfriend Peter Parker over to Culture. Because that's where the REAL froyo is at.

A Question For You Ladies: Facial Hair

Jerri Blank & The Flatpoint High Track Team

Ladies: Have you ever been getting your eyebrows threaded or waxed when the person hovering over you says, "Shall we go ahead and do the whole face?"

I've never bleached, plucked or waxed anything on my face besides my brows. I was not prepared for this qestion. As the lovely woman holding the thread waited for my answer, I wondered if I've been unknowingly walking around the Slope for the past few years with an unsightly amount of facial hair. Is it customary for the one shaping your brows to automatically talk you into an upgrade? Or am I completely in denial about my hairy, ape-like face?

Park Slope Top Ten: Places to Get Blazed

Let's face it. People be puffin' all across this great city of ours. Whether you're an East Village guitarist or a Bed-Stuy hood or a Park Slope mommy, sometimes you just need to chill out with some smoke every once in a while...calm the ol' nerves.

Of course, that chillin' out ain't always happening in the comfort of folks' homes. Sometimes a man just needs to get away from his apartment or job or whatever, take a leisurely stroll, and take off the edge.

I mean, walk around the Wall Street area around lunchtime and there's a good chance you'll catch a whiff of the green...and believe me, that scent ain't coming from the protestors in Zuccotti Park. It's eminating from traders out on their lunch breaks. This same scenario happens all day long throughout the city. All I'm saying is that as a seasoned smoker, the nose knows.

First World Problems: Flatbush Entrance to B/Q At 7th Ave Closed Off

So THIS has been an annoying thing going on for a while. The Flatbush Ave entrance to the 7th Ave B/Q station has been blocked off, forcing commuters to sigh and cross ALLLLLL the way over to the Park Place entrance. When one of our FiPS readers asked an MTA employee what the fuck was going on, and how long might it last, the man simple responded, "They're making some improvals."

Well THAT clears it up.

WHO GIVES A SHIT: Do You Think 'The Nets' Is A Stupid Name For A Basketball Team?

Cause this dude at the NY Daily News certainly does:

"I am, first of all, unaware of another name in professional sports that references an object on that sport's playing field. It would be absurd to call a football team the Endzones or a baseball squad the Outfields..."

"[The Brooklyn Nets] sounds bad, and it means nothing."

I mean, I guess he kinda has a point.
