Who Gives A Shit: Latest Park Slope Discoveries?

Ok, so its getting hot, and its been raining a lot, and I've generally been in a pissy mood lately. As much as I love my tried and true faves in the nabe, I'm kinda getting sick of going to the same places, and eating the same things, and shopping in the same stores for the same crap. So give me some scoop:

Any new (or new to you) shit that you've discovered recently in the nabe? A new place? A new dish at your fave place? A new shop? A new sock vendor on 7th Ave? Spill it.

Here's mine: I had the fresh squeezed OJ at La Bagel Delight for the first time a couple of months ago, and I haven't been the same since. Here's the thing: I could give a rat's ass about oranges or OJ. I never, ever, ever order it while I'm out (unless I feel like a mimosa), I don't buy it at the supermarket and I hate when that shit shows up in my dessert. But ZOMGZ...the fresh squeezed OJ at La Bagel is a motherfucking revelation. It's like $5 for a not so gigantic cup of it, but I swear to gawd its totally worth it.

Ok, now you.

Go Busk Yourself

Listen up, Park Slope: it's bad enough that everyone thinks we're elitist douchebags with our expensive apartments, stroller mafia, celebrity residents, and "best neighborhood in new york" bragging rights. The least we could do to keep people off our backs is show a little bit of humility when it comes to our subway buskers. But nooooo...we don't have any disgusting, toothless, barefoot homeless guys strumming a guitar, or trios of doo-wop singers who haven't bathed in weeks...or even some crazy person dressed up in an Elmo costume playing the accordion. Nope, Park Slope gets this guy above.

That's Right. Some well-to-do motherfucker playing the glockenspiel.

OPEN POST: Just Cuz

Call me lazy if you must, but I looked this morn...HARD. And I couldn't find a single solitary piece of interesting Park Slope news.

SO WTF IS UP WITH YOU BITCHEZ? You tell me!

Here's what's been on my mind:

*Oliver is eating grass again like its his job. I've had a couple of peeps tell me that dog's do that when they have a stomach problem, but this shit has been going on for months. It's out of control at off-leash hours and now the dude has started to graze on his walks too. Is he having an identity crisis? Like maybe I got a cow in a dog's body?? It's tres weird.

*Have you noticed that Park Slope is WAY the fuck more annoying when its hot out? People are moving slower, and strollers are seeming more gigantic and now I gotta use all my self control not to take a bite of your motherfucking Louie G's mint choc chip cone as I walk by cause that would be a bazillion points on WW (and also I guess that's pretty rude).

*In case you're wondering: having two blogs and a full-time job is pretty fucking hard.

*I joined Crunch! And since I signed on the dotted line, I've had an overwhelming desire to just go to the park every single day and do the loop. NICE.

*I've been twice now and have moved into solid "eh" territory with Fornino.

Ok, your turns: WHAT. IS. UPPPPPPPP?

Finally, A Winning Team of Our Own? The Brooklyn Bulldogs

All hail the conquering heroes!

Bring on the ticker tape, Park Slope has a team we can all get behind (well, all you non-Husky, non-Bonnie, non park teamers).

Ladies and Gentleman, Breeders and Ballers, Car(e) Free and Roadified, I give you arguably the best team in Brooklyn b-ball: The 78th Precinct's very own Brooklyn Bulldogs (Orange 11s). Shit, it sounded better when I left out the orange 11 part.
