Say Bye Bye To Our Sidewalks: The Bugaboo 'Donkey' Is (Almost) HERE

Well, stroller nazis, this mofo is likely gonna go down in history as your coup de grace: The convertible Bugaboo "Donkey" stroller! Let's just call it the "Ass" stroller, shall we?

Anytime I see a Bugaboo, I know my first thought is: "well, its nice but, uhm....IT'S JUST NOT BIG ENOUGH!" Thankfully, the design engineers at Bugaboo have addressed that problem and they've addressed it hard. Cause the brand new Ass Stroller can fit two of your bebes! Or maybe four if they're rully, rully, small and can double up!? Are you allowed to do that? Who cares!

This bitch is actually a convertible stroller...so if you neeeeeed to pop it out to a two-seater you can. And it's actually the "narrowest side-by-side luxury stroller at 29-inches." YAAAAY!

Good news/bad news: The Ass Stroller is coming!...but not until next Spring.

The price hasn't been set yet, but we're gonna go ahead and guess it will be somewhere around a million dollars.

Congrats, BREEDERS! Happy Ass Stroller Day!

WHASSUP: Park Slope Restaurant Tour

This is the first Google image result for "delicious yums."

Next week, one of my fav things is happening in the Slope, so put down your breast pumps and clear your calendars, you busy bees.

*Thursday, Sept 23: The Park Slope Restaurant Tour is going down along Sixth, Seventh and Eighth Avenues.  Never been?  Basically, delicious restaurants put delicious things out for you to sample.  You eat them and walk along.  You tell yourself you're not gorging yourself on food, because the bites are small and you are walking, but actually you are and it's okay.  

Last year, I hadn't been to Anthony's, Fonda or Brook-Vin, but this thing turned me onto 'em, among others.  Anyway, if you're waiting for me to say something FIPS-y, keep on waiting, because I actually love this event.  Full list of participants here.

Oh, and if you see me hobbling down Seventh with my cane, yes, I do accept piggyback rides.  Just sayin'.

TODAY, FOR THE FIRST TIME IN HISTORY, TIME WARNER SUCKS A LITTLE LESS

We've bitched and moaned endlessly about Time Warner and their shitty service, ridiculously high rates, and their general assbackward approach to business

Well, now, my friends, it looks like the cable clouds have parted to a partly sunny outlook.  According to Daily Intel, your friendly Time Warner cable guy can't just show up whenever he damn well pleases without repercussions.  

New rules include that if the cable guy is late for a scheduled maintenence appointment, you will receive the next month's service FREE.  

This shit is good news, because I think I have to schedule an appointment—my DVR has totally been on the fritz.  Anyone else?

How Many Bagel Shops Does One Block Need?

photo: Brownstoner

Why, I ask you? WHY?

I don't know how it is that our la bagel loving FIPS maven isn't up in arms at this incursion into her beloved's territory, but she was really quite complacent in last week's round up of new "restos." Is this in the glossary, by the way? Along with the newly ubiquitous FIPS terminology "probs?" 

Are bagels really so much like korean markets that you need two within a one-block radius of each other? Are the bagels of the upcoming Bagel Market going to be such an improvement upon those of La Bagel Delight? Will they avoid the maddening two line sitch of LBD to rule the block? Will they serve brisket or matzoh ball soup?

Because otherwise I don't see the need for another bagel hole (unless it is THE Bagel Hole, which I'd gladly welcome) in Center Slope.

Does ANYBODY do any research before they open a store on 7th Avenue?

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.
