Hey Brooklyn [Episode 47: Rescue Chocolate]

You bitches have this whole blog reading thing down pretty well now, but don't you think its time you expanded your horizons!? Like with a podcast? Like with the Hey Brooklyn PODCAST!? Each week, we'll tell you about the creative BK mofo that our buds over at Hey Brooklyn feature. On deck this week: Sarah Gross from Rescue Chocolate.

Rescue Chocolate sells vegan chocolate bars...and *true* vegans do sort of annoy the shit out of me. BUT, I'm making a massive exception in the case of Sarah Gross. She bills her company as "the sweetest way to save a life," and she seriously means it, as 100% of the proceeds from her co. go directly to dog rescue organizations. 100% people!? As someone who's teeth clench and fists ball up whenever I hear of anyone getting a new pet who did NOT adopt, I gotta give this chick massive props.

So follow her ass on Twitter, fan her up on Facebook and buy some chocolate pronto...the doggies need your cash mon-ay.

Listen to the whole podcast HERE (and subscribe in itunes).

Brooklyn, according to Mary-Kate Olsen: Do you have to swim to get to work?

Okay, really, this has nothing to do with Park Slope, but I'm seriously OBSESSED with these videos.

Brooklyn-based comedienne Elaine Carroll apes Mary-Kate (and Ashley, occasionally) Olsen so well in her video series, Very Mary-Kate, that even their little sister, Lizzie Olsen, was quoted saying that Carroll "so got her!"

I seriously can't stop laughing.

Spring Break 2010, Days 2-4: Let the Sun Shine In...

Day Two was kind of awesome, albeit wet.

I discovered that my boots are not, in fact, waterproof.

The younger guffawed her way to vacation camp as her little umbrella kept going inside out.

African drumming was so groovy when we came to pick her up, I could finally see the draw of the drum circle. Now, I'm going to have to stop making fun of them. I may even form a FIPS drum circle.

Phish-o-Lution 2.0 [Welcome To Our New Life, Erica!!!!!!!]

I know it is early in the morning, but I had to set my alarm so that I could post this before Erica woke up. I'm so incredibly excited to be sharing this news with both the FIPS community and my wife all at the same time.

A little over a year ago, some of you might remember that I hijacked this blog for one magical, tye-dyed day, in my own attempt to cause a Phish-o-lution right here in Park Slope. While Erica and I love each other very much, Phish has always been a topic that we were not able to see eye-to-eye on, and by taking over PHIPS FIPS, I was truly hoping to bring us closer to a big picture understanding that Phish is way more than just a band to me...it's a way of life.

Dear loyal readers of FIPS, 

I'd like to take this opportunity to thank you for your (bastard version of) love and support, but it's time I unload the news: I'm moving back to Williamsburg.
