Adopt a Cat Sundays at Muddy Paws!


Muddy Paws hosts cat and kitten adoptions every Sunday!
Muddy Paws, a holistic pet supply store, hosts cat and kitten adoptions every Sunday from 2pm-6pm!

I should really get a pet. Surely the thought has crossed your mind. Wouldn’t it be nice to have someone to cuddle up and be lazy with? The dating scene in New York isn’t getting you anywhere. You’re tired of watching Stranger Things alone on the couch, curled up with a pint of Van Leeuwen. Wouldn’t it be nice to have someone soft and furry to watch with you? Someone who returns your calls (meows)? Someone who doesn’t cancel dinner plans (the food dish is expected to be filled by 6pm sharp, or else)? Well, it’s time to give in to your urges and do some good. Consider adopting a kitty, many of whom have had rough starts in life and are all-too-ready to have a place to call home. Every Sunday from 2pm-6pm holistic pet store Muddy Paws (447 Graham Avenue) hosts a cat (and kitten!) adoption event.

Weekend Music: Live at Art D’Lugoff’s (8/13 – 8/14)

When the temp is 95, go with tropical music

It’s a shame it’s supposed to be muggy with some thunder this weekend, because Fire Island and Jones Beach have some fine shows.

But I’ve got an option much closer to home that will bring you to the tropics with the chance to duck into a subway home if the skies unleash their fury.

And for our local patio and roof show recommendations, no train is needed.

Finally, Sunday afternoon you can escape the muggy weather at Good Room with a long-play of Daft Punk‘s Discovery album accompanied by a screening of Interstella 5555. Continue reading

Manhattan Avenue’s hip boutique Line & Label held a successful first Dreamcatchers Workshop at the end of last month, and we stalked around the work table to snap pics of our local DIY lovers making their own beautiful creations.

For $50, attendees were given instructions and a wide array of materials to experiment with including leather, feathers, beads and fringe. The resulting dreamcatchers varied in color, size and decoration. “We were truly impressed with everyone’s finished piece, and so happy everyone finished in time too,” says founder Kate O’Riley on the boutique’s website.
