Are you a freelancer, co-worker, artist, work from hom-er, unemployed? Or maybe you just hate your job. No office? No problem! Just because aren’t chained to a desk doesn’t mean you should let the midtown drone/zombie/suits of the world have all the fun this holiday season.
(It’s not in Greenpoint, but it’s just off the G and worth the trip!)
We’ll have all the trappings of a holiday affair — live-band karaoke from Bunnie England & The New Originals, dance tunes from DJs Brian Blackout & Spoolwork (Head On, YDH2S) and Mr. Nyse, a FREE photo booth by Marofoto, food and a holiday gift items raffle — and some too-cool-for-cubicle bonuses including $3 punch for the first hour ($5 after), sexy Santa and lady Santa, a set from the ladies of Handjob Academy and a special guest comedian!
Come join your favorite blogs and dance like your boss isn’t watching all night long.
Hosted by Jo Firestone, co-creator of Punderdome 3000 and the Tiny Comedy Club.
Forget about your own Halloween costume this year – tricking out your pet is so much more fun! And don’t worry – the whimpering and awkward limping really means they love it. When it comes to Pet Halloween Costume Contests – winning is all that matters!
Bring your four-legged friends this Saturday and Sunday to LIC Flea & Food for an early Halloween.
With just two weeks to go, LIC Flea is hosting a pet costume contest this weekend. Visitors will be able to bring their four-legged furry friends to participate in the first pet costume Halloween contest.
If you don’t have a costume for your pet, LIC Flea vendor Spoil My Bitch mobile pet boutique will have a selection of costumes for small to big dogs you can purchase. Options include a fantasy dragon, duck, sailor, basketball player, sailor and even a cow.
Kiki Pet Photography will be taking photos of all the participants and a winner will be awarded prizes including LIC Flea & Food Bucks, a gift card to Ricky’s, a free 20-day potty break package from LIC Dogwalk, a free dog consult from Pooch Pals, a free office exam from City Vet and a discounted photo session with Kiki Pet Photography.
Visitors will also be able to donate clean dog items and unopened food and treats to “Rock & Rawhide” for dogs in need. Those people looking for a furry friend to call their own will also have the chance to adopt a pet through the pet adoption agency Zani’s Furry Friends, which will be at LIC Flea.
Besides pets, LIC Flea & Food has over 70 vendors selling everything from furniture, antiques, art, fashion, jewelry and amazing food vendors. Plus pick up a pumpkin at the LIC Flea Pumpkin Patch bringing pumpkins of all shapes and sizes direct from the farm. Don’t miss out because LIC Flea & Food is only open outdoors for two more weekends!
Come with your nails filed and polished (THINK RASTA COLORS – red, yellow, green or black) and Jessica will show you how to trick them out with a fancy fade. (See video) *note this is not a full manicure – so come neat and nails painted.
All day burn your image into the history of Greenpointers Markets with a Photo Booth by Marofoto! Pets welcome.
Human@Ease will be in the house from noon-4pm giving complimentary chair massages and body assessments which determine your body fat, your lean muscle mass and how many calories you’re burning per day. Get that out of the way BEFORE you eat an empanada!
(Save the date for Human@Ease’s Mad Hatter’s Howling Moon Tea Party on Friday – 10/18, a special evening of costumed revelry, fitness feasting, “Tricked Out Treats Potluck Contest,” detox tonics & libations, intoxicating live music & fancy footing under the Mad, Full Moon!)
The Cinco de Mayo Launch Party at Greenpoint Heights last night was a blast! Here is a sneak peek at some of the photo booth shots. I foolishly thought I could automate this process but that is not the case. More to come…
The Love Birds Valentine’s Market this Saturday, 2/11 is going to be amazing! Aside from a long list of talented food and gift vendors, local artwork, $1 raffle prizes & $10 surprise gifts, there will be a FREE Bird’s Nest Photo Booth, Free Astrology Readings, a Love Letter Writing Station, plus the band Holler performs at 3:30pm.
