FIPS CARES: The Do Gooder Awards

So, The Brooklyn Community Foundation wants all you bitches to "do good right here" in the BK. I mean, like I'm sure they want you to do good e-v-e-r-y-w-h-e-r-e, but yeah: SPECIFICALLY here in Brooklyn. And they're so into this idea, they're giving out awards for the biggest and the baddest do gooders.

Only hitch is, they have no fucking clue where these do gooders are. Clearly they're not here on FIPS, but maybe you know where some of these bitches are? Cause if so, you should nominate them. They're taking noms from now through September 30, and then the voting kicks off on October 1st.

"We invite the larger Brooklyn community to submit nominations for those who they believe embody the highest value of community service and philanthropy; exceptional individuals who display an outstanding sense of giving back locally--with time, talent and/or charity. Candidates should work in one of the Foundation's five fields of interest: Arts for All, Caring Neighbors, Community Development, Education and Youth Achievement and Green Communities and have demonstrated a commitment to Brooklyn."

5 Do gooder winners will be chosen and each will be given 5k toward their indiv. charity or org. So yeah, if you know any non-assholes who remind you not at all of us, nominate em.

Who Gives A Shit: Doggie Daycare?

DOGS, DOGS, DOGZ, DOGZ, BLAH, BLAH, BLAH, BLAH.

Yet another thing to add to our growing list of shit Park Slope needs badly: a KILLER doggie daycare.

Now look, before we knew any better, we used to take Oliver to Dog's Den...BAD IDEA JEANS. The dude now has a scar on his nose to remind him of that horrible time, thanks to some bitch assed dog that got into a fight with him one day and tried to chomp his nose off.

Also, everyone who works there (MOSTLY) could care fuck all about dogs. They need a job and that's it (and in case you're wondering, they get paid minimum wage...and I know this because one day when I was waiting for my dog to be brought up, someone thought it was a good idea to conduct an interview in the mothefucking waiting room out front). I actually think I saw a job listing for this place once, and nowhere does it say: MUST LOVE DOGS. They don't really give a crap and it shows.

Paws in Paradise is actually way the fuck nicer...and everyone who works there is very nice. And in fairness, Oliver has been there a few times and seemed to enjoy himself. But for some reason, there seem to mostly be smaller dogs there...and its just not very big...and I just always get the sense that when I drop Oliver off he's like: AYFKMWTS??? WHERE IS THE A-C-T-I-O-N.

I went once to look at that Place on Douglass (I don't even care enough to google the name right now) and it looked disgusting, so I never went back.

Man, we went to this place back when we lived in the city called The Paw Spot, and it was amazeballs. It was clean and beautiful, and everyone who worked there was crazytown about dogs. You got the sense that if they were not working at a daycare, they'd be at a vet's office, or a pet store, or somewhere where they could just be around dogs all day. So yeah...I'm not really so thrilled with the Park Slope doggie daycare sitch.

What about you? Do you doggie daycare it?

VANILLA ICED, ICED COFFEE...

You know how sometimes you're just sitting around, and then you think to yourself: "I wonder how much every single solitary fucking cup of iced coffee in Park Slope costs?" Like EVERY. SINGLE. ONE.

Yeah, me too.

Well, wonder no more, cause @bumpershine figured allllll that shit out for all your asses in their Park Slope Iced Coffee Survey. And this shit is like more comprehensive than wikipedia.

Check it.

WWYD?

So we've got "Who Gives A Shit?" and ABC News has "What Would You Do." Basically, they hire actors, make sure some scary/sad/freaky shit goes down like send a child predator into a playground or have some creepy dude drug a chick's drink, and they keep the cameras rolling as billions of disinterested Americans do absolutely nothing.

Last week, these WWYD peeps showed their ass up to Ozzie's to conduct a "What Would You Do" experiment with a bitchy mom yelling at her nanny and then the bitchy mom's kid, bitchy daughter. The mom was being abusive and acting like a cunt rag, and surprise surprise, the liberal, Food Coop workin, organic food eatin Park Slopers spoke up! Then they switched gears and the little kid started acting like a ho bag to the nanny, and yet again, Park Slope came to the rescue.

So, WHAT WOULD YOU DO???
