Who Gives a Shit: Bedbugs in Park Slope?

Ok, so as we all know by now, I'm more afraid of bedbugs than I am of Britney Spears' hair extensions (and I am VERY FUCKING afraid of those things).

I read the article in NY Mag about the bed bugs invasion on the Upper East Side, while gagging through each page of horrific rich people extermination story. But it got me curious about exactly what is or is not going down in Park Slope?

We've all heard the Pavillion rumors, but what else is going on out there? Have any of you HAD bed bugs? Have your neighbors had bed bugs? I'm not looking for wild rumors, ppl (though those are fun too), but like some actual real world experience.

ARE THESE FUCKERS COMING TO GET ME??

[Feel free to go stealth anon in the comments if you feel like keep things all private-n-shit].

Memorial Service For Fallen Raccoon?

As we all learned last Friday, raccoon crime sprees are all too common in our sleepy little nabe. Just when you think you're immune, you too might wake up to find the decapitated head of a raccoon peeking out of your silverware drawer. NO ONE IS SAFE.

However, we can't gloss over the fact that a raccoon *did* lose its life. And now its baby is motherless, and likely facing a lifetime of hardship and "yo momma is SOOO DEAD" jokes.

And I'm just a little confused because I didn't receive any emails over the weekend about any planned memorial services or candlelight vigils?? Anyone? Hello?

The murdered geese get 200 people (including police and local politicians) at a planned memorial, but the lone rebellious raccoon dies alone?

You disappoint me, Park Slope.

Bussaco Is Closed

Remember when there were rumors about Jen Aniston and Brad Pitt breaking, up and shit started appearing in US Weekly? But still we were all like "naw....it can't be true!?" And then it *was* true and you were all like: I TOLD YOU SO! WHY DIDN'T YOU LISTEN TO ME??

Right, so as of Friday night, Bussaco is closed. Which is approx 5 mos after the "Bussaco is closing" rumors began (which is actually pretty impressive).

Not sure what went wrong there, but that place was pretty much always empty. I live approx 1 block away and I had only been there once....considering how fucking lazy I am, that's pretty telling. I hope another fab restaurant gets in there pronto, b/c it really is a great space.
