This is Park Slope...WE CARE About Our Trees

If you see a tree that looks cold, knit a sweater for it! It's only right!

From @damiela:

"I was just walking down 16th Street between 7th and 8th Avenue and came across three consecutive trees wearing sweaters, one teal, one mustard, one red. I took a picture of the teal one."

Ok, ppl: we need to take action! These 3 trees already have coats, but that leaves a whole hell of a lot of trees in Park Slope that are currently freezing their fucking asses off.

Perhaps we should get a Kickstarter going to pay for all the yarn?

Bark Will Deliver Hot Dogs To Your DOORSTEP!

Ok, ppl, this one is a gamechanger: BARK HOT DOGS WILL SOON BEGIN DELIVERING! LIKE TO YOUR FUCKING FRONT DOOR!

Let that one sink in for a mo.

You still need a minute?

Yeah, me too.

Anyway, beginning January 25th Bark will begin delivery to both Park Slope and Prospect Heights. Stay tuned for their delivery menu (which should be posted on their site soon), but know that that mofo will include some of their new "party packs." In case you're intrigued by party packs, welcome to the club:

"We will also have some different party packs to go including Dogs, Burgers, Sides, Growlers, etc. at a discounted price for parties of 10 or more."

And in an effort to avoid the shitshow that might otherwise be the first day of opening up the delivery floodgates, Bark would love anyone who might be getting hot dog drop offs on the regular to get them their addys BEFORE Jan 26th. This way they can get you into their system and make this whole transition catastrophe free. You can either pass your address along when placing a take-out order, calling up, or stopping in.

Their delivery area will include: "from Bark (Bergen St. and Flatbush Ave.) East to Pacific Street, South-East to 4th Ave., South to 9th street, North to Underhill Avenue, and West to Prospect Park West."

HELLS TO THE FREAKIN YEAH!

Methodist Hospital SNAPS AT US

Sooo, after we busted the Methodist Hospital posted about the Adderall ring in the nabe (legal disclaimer: which may or may not have something to do with Methodist), NY Post ran a story on it the next day. And lemme tell you, Methodist is PISSED. How do we know? Cuz they sent us a bitchy email about it! Case in point:

"We don’t normally respond to articles printed in the New York Post but because several blogs have—without calling the public relations office at New York Methodist Hospital (NYM) to verify their facts— reprinted or even embellished a recent story about the arrest of a young woman on drug charges, I am taking this opportunity to set the record straight."


OKRRR!

First of all, that sentence is 60 words long... Now, how the fuck am I supposed to muster the attention span to get through that without my Adderall stash? And second of all, you don't normally respond to the articles in the NYP, but you get your panties in a twist over a post made on a blog with FUCK in the URL?! I mean...?!?!!! And finally, PR pro tip: refrain from sending passive aggressive e-mails in the future.

I can't deal with this "journalistic ethics" bullshit, but if you bitches care enough about the official position of the New York Methodist Hospital on the Adderall chick and her anesthesiologist boyfriend who wrote fake prescriptions, I'm sure you can find the number for their communications person somewhere on the contact page. Let us know if they snap at you, too.

Hog Mountain Dunzo

HOG MOUNTAIN, that manly man store on the corner of Sackett and 5th is officially GOING OUT OF BUSINESS!

Where am I gonna buy hammers and upscale shaving supplies for my man now?

This is sad news 4sure, but also: RED HOT SALE ALERT: socks are only $1 for a pack of 3! And not shitty Hanes socks, real fancy MAN socks. Get 'em while you can! The store is almost emptied out at this point, but Levi jeans are going for $35 a pop, and there is a cool table for $150 that I wish I had space for.

What's next for the moutain men? Dude that runs the store told me their next venture will be the wholesale fancy boot bidnezz. I'm sold.

Hey, Broke Singles: Spend Tomorrow Drunk with Other Broke Singles...

...instead of alone! 

Fuck the Millionaire Matchmaker (ignoring that present company is watching HD on Demand of this god forsaken show). After all, we are Brooklyn, and none of that moneybags Manhattan shit flies here. (Right.) Anyway, tomorrow at Union Hall: the Hundredaire Matchmaker, a singles event for the broke but still relatively fabulous.

In their words, if you've ever thought, "Hey, I'm single and kind of a tool, but I'm also kind of broke. How will I ever fulfill my dreams of being brought onto someone's show, made fun of, and then matched up with an outer-boroughs golddigger?" then this is for you.

It's only five meager bucks (for true love! What a barggg!). Get your info and last minute entry in here, and preview some of the eligible here.
