Spring Break Dance Party [Oh Yes We Can]

Look, between Coffee Wars, the bus loads of people who are moving into the nabe after Park Slope was chosen as THEBESTNEIHBORHOODEVEREVEREVER, laser surgery and Small/Cool I need to let off some fucking steam.

Who's with me???

[Every single one of your asses should collectively raise your hands now].

Anyway.

We've decided to take some action and do an impromptu Spring Break Dance PART-AY this Thursday, 4/29 at the Bell House! It's International Dance Day! And we wanna CELEBRATE!

BREEDERS, BALLERS, BR-ALLERS, douchebags, bloggers, boners, beardos, weirdos, hipsters, hippies, coop-tards, heteros, homos, singles, marrieds, olds, creepy dudes...all your asses are invited! We're all gonna get drunk, and get dance-y Daytona Beach style.

Now in case you're wondering WTF happened to the Big Gay Meatup, that shit is still goin on too....but in the front Lounge of the Bell House!

In the back space we're throwing a dance party to end all dance parties. We're gonna party like its 1999...or like we're shooting a Girls Gone Wild video (whichever is more severe).

Tickets are FREE! That's right, btchz...you heard it here first. And to make sure everyone gets nice and lit, we're doing cheap ass drink specials (sex on the beach anyone?) for $5. We even bought those little umbrellas ppl...we don't fool around.

OF COURSE, Robicelli's cupcakes will be in the house (yum).

So yeah, let's party it up! I'm gonna be there, Greg's gonna be there and the whole FIPS crew will be in the house (well, at least the ones that can't come up with a good excuse). Maybe we'll even get some disgruntled Gorilla Coffee employees to come by and stage a protest. It's gonna be OFF THE HIZZY.

So yeah, get your tix here and let's get drunk and dance-y together.

RSVP on Facebook.

HAPPY ENDINGS: Cocker Spaniel Was Found!

FIPS reader Tom sent this update from the FIDO newsletter from the parents of the missing cocker spaniel whose sign we posted about last week. He was found! Check it:

"We were lucky enough to have a ton of media coverage in the last couple of days - radio, TV, newspapers and blogs (including yours) - and as a result we got a very specific tip-off last night from someone who thought they had seen him in Red Hook.  We headed down there early this morning hoping to catch a sighting on his morning walk, and sure enough a few hours later we saw someone walking our dog in the Red Hook projects.

We called the NYPD and when they turned up two minutes later, we knew which building and even what apartment he was in (as I said, the tip-off was very specific).  It turns out that the people there had bought him from a guy on the street last week - he was bought as a family pet and had been well cared for.  We headed with the police over to the vet clinic on Warren and Smith where his microchip positively identified him as our dog.  Case closed!


Thanks so much for all your help with our search.  We're so thankful for how everyone in our community - friends, neighbors and strangers - have supported us and our mission to find our boy."

Thank gawd.

Sidenote: who the fuck BUYS A DOG off of someone on the street. I mean, I appreciate that the people were taking good care of him, but that's also the stupidest fucking thing I've ever heard of.

Anyway.

Glad the little dude is back home with his fam.

SUBWAY ETIQUETTE: THE COMMON SENSE EDITION

We all know that the MTA sucks.  You're all dressed up and ready to go, and then you walk to the station only to find that your train is out of service and the only way you can get to your destination is to take the most ass-backwards route ever imagined—15 train transfers (and they always somehow involve Hoyt-Schemmememorjkrrhorn), going to a borough you didn't even want or need to go to, boarding a shuttlebus, getting off the shuttlebus, hopping on a pogo stick for 17 miles, etc.  

If you're lucky enough to avoid these transfer shenanigans, you can be assured that the smelliest homeless person on Earth will be on your train, along with several mariachi bands, a couple of pole-leaning douchebags, and maybe a hip-hop dance crew.

SMALL COOL, PART DEUX

Thanks to all of your clickity click clicking, our asses made it past round one in the Apartment Therapy's Small/Cool contest!

Yay!

Now we gotta deal with a sudden death elimination round in order to move on and the only things standing in our way are Jessica, Eli and one brown dog. Needless to say, I want to CRUSHTHEMCOMPLETELY.

Voting will start again tomorrow (still not sure if that means midnight or whenever the Apartment Therapy editors wake up, but I'll keep you posted).

Needless to say, we'll need your help again. If you don't already have an Apartment Therapy account and shafted us on the last vote, now would be a good time to get one (you'll need one in order to actually vote). If you *do* already have one (b/c, you know, you rule and love us more than all those other mean people), get ready to clickity click AH-GAIN!

Stay tuned (and THANK YOU!).
