RUMORSVILLE: LOKI DOKEY?

It's like some scraggly, bearded, irrelevant septuagenarian kinda-Minnesotan Jew once said back in the days when it actually meant something but ultimately didn't:

THE TIMES THEY ARE A CHANGIN'

In the lonely village of what I suppose you could refer to as "Rumorsville, Brooklyn" we've learned that the times they are a changin' in Park Slope. Get ready for a yuppie in every brownstone!

Here's the deal...y'all recall how LOKI Lounge has been around for forevs...1999 & shit? Bar in the front, "lounge" in the back? Somewhat recently "secret" steakhouse 'round the bend? Welp...you may have to reconsider your current stance on moving upstate & working on Maggie's farm because in Park Slope, the times they are a-TOTALLY changin'.

5th Ave. Cat Clinic Serving Up Major Cattitude 

Image Via Jezebel

Just a disclaimer, cats are my least favorite animal...right behind star-nosed moles and blob fish (you should immediately Google these things). I guess you could say that I'm a "dog person."

And yes, I know that YOUR cat is JUST like a dog and LOOOOOOVES people. My main question is...why didn't you just get a dog then? There is a very low chance of a dog not being "dog-like"...and a very high chance of a cat not being "dog-like."

Anyway...

One of our FIPS readers tipped us off about her experience with 5th Avenue Cat Clinic and let's just say...she has some less-than-flattering things to say about them. I will note that this place (from the outside) totally creeps me out.

Park Slope Ballers Circa 1979

Park Slope ballers in 1979 look...well, like EVERY MOTHERFUCKER in Williamsburg does now. Or, shall I say, Williamsburg folks look like us in '79 baller-form. Check out these videos done by clothing company, Capry, and delight in the fact that the location of this amazing fashion moment happened on our very own, 5th ave and 9th st. Here's another vid:

Saturday's Shopping shuttle a bust?

If you didn't blow your paycheck on Friday's Black Deals, there was a "Small Business Saturday" here in the Slope.

All afternoon, a school bus ran along 5th Avenue shuttling shoppers between 18th Street and Dean Street. The free transportation, courtesy of the Fifth Avenue BID, didn't look very busy. Did anyone else know this was going on? If so, did you take advantage?

HERE ARE SOME THINGS TO GET YOU THROUGH THE REST OF THANKSGIVING WEEKEND (TURKEYPOCALYPSE) 

  

Thanksgiving: it's a holiday weekend that really starts with a bang on Thursday, but leaves us having to figure out what to do with our stuffing-stuffed selves for the next few days. Here are some helpful hints of what to do post the Turkeypocalpyse: 


I hate leftovers. I mean, I can eat Thanksgiving Round 2 about 12 hours after I consumed it the first time, but then what? God knows there’s more turkey and fixin’s than I can shake a stick at, and dagwood sandwiches are looking kinda' meh at this point.

Martha Stewart has of course thought of about 2,000 ways to correct our little problem (along with inventing a lot of problems we didn’t even know we had). Here are 35 OF HER BEST-LOOKING POST-THANKSGIVING LEFTOVER RECIPES. Here are my personal favorites of the bunch:
