These Ppl Met At The Naughty Office Holiday Party Last Year, AND NOW THEY'RE MARRRRRRIEEEDDDD!

Srsly, ppl...this is not a drill. THIS IS THE REAL THING!

Marta and Tim met at last year's Naughty Office Holiday party and now they are hitched...like legally! That's them above on their wedding day in Central Park!

I'm pretty sure this is our first BK Hookup marriage, and also the thing that *might* karmically save me from going straight to hell. All I know is, it's totally fucking amazing. 

If you don't already have your ticket, get one. Cause maybe you'll end up like Marta and Tim. Or not, and maybe you'll just get laid. Either way, you need to be prepared.

Here's some more scoop on this happy, adorably cheesy couple:

Whole Foods To Park Slope: It's On Like Donkey Kong

image via CurbedYep, it's official: Whole Foods in Gowanus is happening! Rejoice in the streets all you suspended Food Coop shift workers!

The store is gonna have a 20,000sf roof garden where they're going to grow their own locally produced and cruelty-free veggies. There's going to bike parking, an electric car charging station, a waterfront esplanade and probably a fucking vegan compost mosh pit for all we know.

Anyone wanna take bets on which will be finished first? Whole Foods or Atlantic Yards?

Here's the official release from Mark Mobley (of Whole Foods) to Craig Hammerman, the District Manager of Community Board 6:

COOL OR NOT COOL: Setting Up A B & B In Your Brownstone??

There's a rather heated discussion going on over at Brownstoner regarding an allegedly illegal B&B in Park Slope. The original poster is very unhappy about this situation because as they claim, this B&B "attracts a lot of transients" to our normally quiet nabe and "blocks our street every morning for airport taxis."

I'm not sure what the hell kind of transients make reservations at bed and breakfasts, but Brownstoner ClydeFrazier had my fave response to this same inquiry:

"Oh dear, are these transients urinating on the sidewalk and committing crimes to support their drug habits?
No, but they take taxis to the airport!!!

Personally I'm not so sure what the big dealio is...doesn't everyone who wants to stay in Park Slope just go to Hotel Le Blah anyway?

Feel free to go anon in the comments if you're a pussy you maintain any hope of ever speaking to your family again. But otherwise, GO. TO. TOWN.

[LINKED] I'm Obsessed with The Ninja 1100

+ If your membership at the Food Coop has been suspended and you still want your farm fresh fruits-n-veggies, no sweat! Triomph Fitness is forming a CSA! (Brownstoner).

+ I'm glad we're all busy wasting time on cabbie's fucking dress codes...I don't give a shit what they wear, but if they'd all stop incessantly fighting with their wives/girlfriends/mistresses on never-ending cell phone calls, that would be pretty rad (NYT).

+ Does anyone have the Ninja 1100? I saw the infomercial for this thing this weekend and now I'm kind of obsessed. It looks like a magic bullet, but a WAY better one. This is now #1 on my Hannukah list (Ninja1100).

+ BREAKING: Allison is now on Twitter. You can follow her @BrooklynBreeder. The rest of our FIPS writers are still total pussies and refuse to try it (though I know I will persuade those btchz one day!).

+ Here's some inside scoop on The Rock Shop and their talent booker Skippy McFadden. Anyone seen some live music there? (Brooklyn Based).

+ Squirrel maulings are up...is Park Slope next? (Gothamist).
