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?

Who Gives A Shit: Cheapest Dry Cleaner?

Personally, I choose my dry cleaners strictly based on their location (i.e. the one near the Q train cause my ass has to walk by every day...not even sure what its called), but I guess not everyone can be so luxurious with their dry cleaning choices. Case in point, this chick:

"I was hoping you might have a piece about the cheapest dry cleaner in Park Slope... I'm broke, but I don't want to be dirty! Any ideas?"

What say you guyz?

Ozzies Closed By Health Dept?

That's what ppl were emailing me about all day yesterday and today while I was busy Rosh Hashanah-ing it up. Even when I try to be a good Jew, it never works.

"FYI, Ozzies on 5th ave just got shut down by the health dept. The baristas were standing by the door so I felt that taking a pic would be a bit crude."

Not sure if that shit is open again already or not, but even if its not, TGIF! (L'shana Tova!)

PUNK SLOPE (Part 2)

You wouldn't know it from my pearl earring, Ralph Lauren-wearing ass now, but back in high school, I was allllllllllllllll about punk rock.  And by "punk rock," I mean watered-down, poppy stuff that would only alarm the most uptight suburban white parents (I mean, the Bouncing Souls were my favorite for God's sake).

But ever since NOFX's Fat Mike rolled into town with Thistle Hill Tavern on 15th Street and 7th, I started to think that maybe the least grungy, most bugaboo-laden neighborhood may have some punk sentiments hidden somewhere underneath?

Thoughts? 

Anti-Flag is headlining a show at The Bell House on 9/22.  Let's all break out our studded belts and pretend we're straight-edge for 45 minutes.  OI! OI?
