Calexico Cart in Park Slope?

Whoa.

Someone emailed me yesterday to say that Calexico Cart was in Park Slope at 7th & Carroll. And I was all "nawwww waaaaay!" Then I saw some shit on Twitter about it too.

Did this actually go down? And if so, will it ever go down again? Cause if so, I need to immeds quit my job so I can be around to eat Calexico Cart every day.

SAY NO TO PUBLIC DIAPER CHANGING UNLESS YOU HAVE A 0-6 MONTH OLD IN WHICH CASE ITS PROBS OK

I recently almost threw up at the "tot lot" when some mom changed her child (not baby) in front of me.  I knew I didn't like her from the moment she unbuckled her kid from his bike and he was wearing
crocs. I thought I could forgive that until she called out his name and it was the same as my own little guy's.

SIGH.

It's either you or me. Pack up your bugaboo and find a new park, fuckface.

Vote For Me! No Me! No Me!

I guess the politicking could be worse. But, judging from the glut of local candidates hanging in front of PS 321 at pickup yesterday afternoon, not by much!

While running the gauntlet, a friend greeted me with the question of the day, "They DO have school tomorrow, right? Please, please, tell me school isn't closed."

Because we breeding classes can't take it anymore. We need to cut bait and get this school year going. No more one day of school a week shit. No more days off for at least a month! So don't you even think about shutting down for an election!

Thank GOD! I have checked the calendar and settled my mind. The civic-minded will get a chance to vote for your favorite his and hers district leaders, judges, and assemblers without messing up my plans to GET A JOB today.

Right after I vote. For whom or what, I'm not entirely sure just yet. But near as I can tell, there's a major, earth-shaking election going on today.

I Will Bet You All A Million Dollars That There Are Bedbugs At The Pavilion

I'm seriously considering switching the name of this blog to Bedbugs in Park Slope...what do you think?

Look, you people do whatever the fuck you want. But as for me, I have already added the Pavilion movie theater to the growing list of places that I will never, ever, ever, ever, step foot in again. 

I will admit that I am currently completely bedbug obsessed, however, this Pavilion sitch comes up on a weekly motherfucking basis via emails from all y'all, and other news stories around the blogosphere. And where there's smoke, there's usually fire.

Ricky's Pop-Up Shop Comes To South Slope

Looks like we'll have another place to get Halloween costumes in the Slope besides Beacon's Closet.

This weekend, signs for a Ricky's Halloween Pop-up shop appeared on the corner of 11th Street and 7th Avenue, on the site of the old Hudson Cleaners. No word on when the shop actually opens, but there are signs posted that they're hiring, so get your resumes in order.

I've never been a huge fan of Halloween, so I could give two shits about Ricky's temporarily setting up shop here in South Slope. I'm sure the spot will get lots of traffic, especially because there's zero competition from surrounding businesses. And I'm sure the folks on 11th street who put the giant blow-up ghosts on their front lawn every year will be happy to have a place close to home to buy their decorations. It's also good to know that if I get dragged to some lame-ass costume party, I'll know where to go to buy over-priced costumes.  

Of course, this isn't the only Ricky's in the Slope. They're also opening another Halloween pop-up shop on the corner of Bergen and Flatbush, and there's a apparently plans for a permanent location at 478 Bergen, on that strip between Flatbush and 5th Avenue. With Babeland on the same strip, I think we can officially declare that as Park Slope's very own Red Light District. There's even a maternity clothing store there (Bump) which oddly seems appropriate, don't you think?
