Metromix Best of NY: Park Slope Represent!

So, our pals at MetromixNY are doing a "Best of NY" contest right now, and Park Slope is pretty much all over this thing.

However, if you want us to win you gotta vote for our shit! Otherwise we'll continue to be known as the stroller nazi capital rather than the nabe with the best Sports Bar AND Hot Dogs.

Here are the Park Slope picks [VOTE FOR EM! UNLESS YOU'RE A TRAITOR]:

You gotta be in it to win it, bithes.

If You Want to Cheat on Your Spouse Just *Once,* Smartmom says 'GO FOR IT!'

Seriously.

Look: "If it’s a one-time thing, Smartmom says, why not? While that might sound flip, the truth is, it does happen and doesn’t need to break up a marriage."

Nice one, Smartmom!

There was a whole series of posts back and forth on Park Slope Parents last week in which a woman was asking for advice from her fellow BREEDERS on what to do about her husband who was Craigslist trolling for some baum chicka baum baum action. Smartmom, in her weekly Brooklyn Paper column, chimed in.

Oh man...you can't make this shit up, people.

CupcakeGate 2K10: The Finale [Impromptu FIPS Cupcake Social TONIGHT]

As we all know by now, this weekend marked both the beginning and the end of Cupcake Gate 2K10.

The Chip Shop's very public failure to produce deep fried cupcake deliciousness, left a mark on our community that will not soon be forgotten.

However, today is the dawn of a new day, thanks to Allison from Robicelli's Cupcakes.

We must all now begin to pick up the shattered pieces of our cupcakeless weekends and start anew. And thanks to Allison's delivery of 24 insanely delicious, freshly baked Elvis cupcakes (see above), we want to make that shit happen for you.

BREAKING: Chip Shop Has No Fried Robicelli's Cupcakes [Or Maybe They Do...Who the Fuck Knows? Hint: not them]

image: nataliedee.com

UPDATE TO THE UPDATE: Now, apparently this shit is on (according to @theessentialman). Whatevs, Chip Shop...I'm done with you.

UPDATE: Robicelli's tweeted me with the following update: "Called us last night and said they had a problem with the oil, so they had to cap the special to last night only. Boourns." I'm no fry daddy, but this makes no sense to me. Everything on the Chip Shop's menu is fried! So if they can't fry the cupcakes, I guess they can't fry anything else on the menu? Also what sort of "problems" could one even have with oil?? Chip Shop FAIL.

Ok, so after reading about, blogging about, and tweeting my fucking face off about the deep fried Robicelli cupcakes that were supposed to be at the Chip Shop this weekend, I was pretty bummed to walk my ass alllll the way over there in the freezing cold (forgot my gloves, went anyway), only to find that no one there had any fucking clue what I was talking about.

Park Slope Snowball Fight??

photo: Doug Kim (you can even purchase prints HERE)

Did I just see some more snowflakes??

Ever since that last blizzard, I've been pissed that I missed this amazing snowball fight in Times Square.

Then I started thinking: God damn it, we need a good old snowball fight in Park Slope!

It could be a ceremonial breaking of the ice between the nabe haves and have nots: kid-toting vs kid-free,
capitalists vs legal aid lawyers/social workers, newbies vs old guard, boys vs. girls, gym-toned vs fat-assed, employed vs laid off...

I'll even try to talk Erica into setting up a FIPS table with hot cocoa and mulled cider (okay, I don't actually know how to mull cider but how hard canit be??).

If it starts up again and anything sticks tonight, let's all meet tomorrow in long meadow!
