  • city snow plow stuck in the snow from about 9am until 4:30
    This is just too perfect...The city snowplow that came down my block today got stuck half way down the block and sat there spinning its wheels until 7.5 hours later, when a sanitation tow truck came and gave it a nudge. Now traffic can theoretically drive down the block--except that it's still un-plowed.

  • Rental Spaces for event
    I'm in search of a space in Brooklyn which would be appropriate for an event with about 100 or less people. Does anyone have any suggestion?? Preferably not a restaurant or someplace with a caterer already attached to it. A view would be ideal, but not necessary.

    Thanks for your help

  • Reality show filming at Fairway
    We were at Fairway yesterday (Monday) in the morning and the place was crawling with tv production people for a reality show. The subjects were a man and woman, late 30's, vaguely biker-ish (ie, Harley), who just seemed to be shopping. I asked one crewperson and he said it was for Food Network.

    Can anyone recommend a good CAT grooming place in the area? I've heard Let's Pet is good for dogs but not cats. The whole reason I want my cats to get groomed is to spare them of the chaos of moving, and I don't want them going somewhere that will stress them out as much ...
