WHASSUP: Shit's Goin' On This Weekend and Next

It's Fashion Week, so I haven't known my fucking name since last Thursday. My threshold for pithy witticisms is long destroyed, so here's your vanilla WHASSUP:

*Friday, Feb 18: Play. Get your Black History Month on by seeing The Legend of Buster Neal, a new play by Jackie Alexander. Previews open on Friday at the Billie Holiday Theatre, and the show runs through Marc 3. Summary, tix and times here.

*Friday, Feb 18: Music to groove to. African-Latin band People's Champs play Barbes and debut their new EP. 10pm, $10. Info on the band and a preview of their music here.

*Friday, Feb 25: Longboard race. Push Culture is hosting the first-ever Prospect Park Winter Race for longboarders, or as they put it "wing nut surfing gypsies." 7.25 miles, two loops around the park, and festivities after. Here's your info should you want in.

*Saturday, Feb 26: Reproductive freedom rally. This isn't in the Slope, but you BALLERS might wanna head to Foley Sqaure from 1-3pm to help out Planned Parenthood keep abortion an option (otherwise, Park Slope is even more fucked). Info on the rally here, plus ways you can help.

And also: Creative hive 3rd Ward is ffering $50 bucks off membership until March 4. So if you need to fuel your creative soul or feel like making fun of "creative types" huddled in one concentrated place, go visit.

And boy, ain't vanilla tasty.

Drinks for Teacher At South

Overheard in Roots Café (How I get most of my news—frinstance, did you guys know there’s some stuff going on in Egypt?): South Bar (5th Ave b/t 17th and 18th) has a teachers’ happy hour, 3-5 Fridays.

I like this idea. A lot.

TERROR ON SEVENTH AVENUE

Dear Dipshit who left a MOTHERFUCKING BEDBUG RIDDEN MATTRESS just chillin upside down out on 7th Ave and 3rd Street this morn,

Uhm, thanks for the note, but the fact that you left this vile, infested, disease missile sitting there without first wrapping it in a hazmat suit, inside of plastic, inside a layer of of bedbug killing film (has anyone invented this yet??), makes me want to murder you and your family with a rusty, dipped in AIDS germs ax.

Love,
Erica (and I'm guessing also your Park Slope neighbors)

Entitled Neighbor Watch: Buyer Beware

We have a little kerfuffle developing in my co-op. My new BALLER neighbor hasn't had a decent night's sleep since she moved in last spring.

Apparently, her upstairs neighbors are children...and early risers. And they like to jump upon their trampoline and make incomprehensible amounts of noise starting at, oh, DAWN, when their small feet first hit the ground.

I feel her pain, espesh because she seriously shelled out for her seemingly serene apartment, which she probably looked at for a total of twenty minutes once or twice. Anyway, back to my point: too bad she didn't tour the joint at six in the morning before she signed on the dotted line.

Scalino Got Seized

Or served...or whatever the hell you call it.

But the tax man came a knockin' and apparently Scalino, that little Italian-ish joint on 7th Ave between 9th and 10th streets, didn't answer the door.

Let this be a lesson to us all: April 1st April 15 April 18th is just around the corner, ppl.
