Seltzer Bo-oy-oy, Where Are You Hi-i-ding?

photo: via NYTSo, I LOVE that people still get seltzer delivered. My mom, an honorary Jew, but really a Park Slop Sicilian, can't get enough of it. She waxes on about the egg creams of her youth (a beverage that makes me barf a little in my mouth).

Anyway, I regularly see this mystifying nostalgia truck parked around the hood loaded with cases of bottles. Ronny Beberman, aka Seltzer Man of Brooklyn, sells the shit (I mean nectar of the gods) for $25/case of 10 siphon bottles every two weeks, delivered to your door.

"It's like night and day," said one subscriber. According to seltzer dude's wife, who seems to be in charge of marketing and new sales and was hoping for one in me (sorry!), it's more fizzy and won't go flat like regular store-bought, it's good for the environment, and it tastes way better without the plastic bottle flavor.

So, if you've got a yen for the fizzy (and i don't mean lizzy), help keep Ronny in business. He's at 718.464.6408.

Who Gives a Shit: BALLER Perks?

Ok, so spill it: what's your favorite perk of being a BALLER and getting to do whatever the fuck you want, WHENEVER you want?

For me, hands down, its traveling. I love, love, love, the fact that Greg and I can take trips to exotic locales, stay in nice hotels, get drunk at dinner, and stay out late...IN FOREIGN COUNTRIES. Being a BALLER is an international pursuit, ppl.

Speaking of, in my quest to be all cool-n-travel-y, I became obsessed with the Jauntsetter newsletter. Have you signed up for this bitch yet? If not, you should:

  • First of all, they featured me as a Jauntsetter of the Week last week. So that rules.
  • Second of all, its a killer weekly list of tips/tricks and great info about travel deal and cool places. Also it's targeted toward bitches like us who live in NYC, so all the info is R-E-L-E-V-A-N-T.

Anyway.

Yeah...so mine is travel.

What's your fave BALLER perk?

Endangered Species Watch: MTA Buses 

I can't remember the last time I rode the bus regularly (probably the 104 and 86th street crosstown circa 1978) but I'm going to miss you anyway, MTA buses. Is this a sign of progress or armageddon? Not sure but it's a little unnerving to pass these signs on every block.

Recommendation For A Good Massage Place In The Slope?

Uhm, am I the only one who thinks this shit is all code for: where can I get a happy ending?

From Brooklynian:

"I’m looking for a good massage place in the Park Slope area where the massage therapist speaks good English. I just want to be able to talk for five minutes about the specifics of my problems before beginning the massage."

Riiiiiiiiight.

You Will Probably Get Run Over By A NYC Garbage Truck 

Well, well, well: so apparently the city paid 17.6 MILLION dollars last year, cleaning up claims filed against garbage men who were driving recklessly. Basically, we're talking about all sorts of shit: illegal u-turns, knocking off side mirrors, running over babies (ok, well not that one...at least I don't think so).

Anyway.

I can't wait to hear what all you whiny ass bitches have to say about this one:

"OH, BUT ITS SOOOO HARD TO BE A GARBAGE MAN! THEY SHOULD BE ALLOWED TO HAVE ACCIDENTS AND DRIVE OVER PEOPLE'S CARS." Whine, whine, whine, blah, blah, blah.

Just remember: you heard it from me FIRST! Garbage men are lazy AND dangerous.
