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.
