HEADS UP: MOVE YR PRIUS, YOU ENTITLED YUPS

Photo: 6H057.NET

A heads up from our buddies at Neighborhoodr: Park Slope -- "Bored To Death" will be filming in Slope(ish area) on Tuesday, April 20th (stop your 420 giggling, you people are supposed to be adults).

Now, I'm not telling you this so you can skip work and go squeal and hold up signs to celebrate your Jonathan Ames fandom (though I know some of you have already opened up your mail clients to tell your bosses that your clairvoyant self sees an elephant stampede rendering you unable to attend work on Tuesday).  Rather, I'm giving you the FYI because if your car is parked on Bergen between Fifth and Sixth, your ass will be illegally parked on Tuesday.  And I know, from this hilarious sign, that some of you won't be moving your hippie-mobiles until alternate side strikes:

"People who park here don’t necessarily live on this block & won’t see these signs. They will believe they are legally parked until 7:30am on Tues. If you care as you say you do about inconveniencing the neighborhood you wouldn’t wait until 3 days prior to put up signs. A minimum of one week so people would see it when they parked would be considerate."

THE BALLER VERSION OF HELL

BREEDERS, ever wonder what the BALLER version of hell on Earth is?  Sing-a-long hour at the Tea Lounge? The Seventh Avenue Halloween parade?  No.  It is called YMCA Healthy Kids Day.  And holy shit is it frightening.

I dragged my ass out of bed to get in my Saturday AM workout at the Armory - you know, the one place where I can clear my head and pretend no one else exists - and walked through the door to this fucking rugrat jamboree.  I may have seen my dating life flash before my eyes, a chorus of animated diapers chanting, "Single girl, you are no longer welcome."

[INFIPSTIGATION] Park Slope Food Coop v. Barneys Co-Op

image via RackedOh for fuck's sake. It's true [gawd, I thought it was a good April Fool's joke].

So yes, I emailed Park Slope Food Coop General Manager Joe Holtz to get his side of the story.

Here you go. Have your fun, you dirtbags... I hate that you're right.

Worst Post Office Ever? Happy Tax Day from the 7th Ave USPS

So, you'd think that maybe, just *maybe,* our local post office would ramp up to oh, i don't know, three open windows in honor of death and taxes day??

Uh, no.

In true fashion, they were as just as understaffed and surly as usual, with maybe two postal peeps manning the front, while untold staffers milled around the back. Can't "sorting wait," for fuck's sake? (though also, I so don't buy that that's what's going on back there).

Park Slope Food Coop To Sue Barney's Co-Op Over Name Violations?

image via the geniuses at RackedYou know, sometimes I have these moments when I'm like, "hunh...maybe I AM just a whiny, fucking bitch."

I think about all the crap we write about on FIPS and then wonder aloud if I should relax...or tone it down...or just stop picking on certain people, places or things...like the Park Slope Food Coop for example! I mean, its just a group of committed, community loving Brooklynites right?? Working together for the greater good of us all!

Right???

And then I see shit like this:

Is the Barneys Co-op breaking the law — with its name?

"The venerable Park Slope Food Coop has fired a shot against the fancy-schmancy Barneys Co-op, saying that the department store slated to open later this year on Atlantic Avenue has illegally coopted the word “co-op”..."

AYFKMTS????
