I admit F.I.B has been nothing but a bulletin board lately, not to make excuses but everybody needs a break and paying attention to all this development stuff can take you down into the depths of despair and apathy, plus it bores many of my friends to tears! Alright, I'm exaggerating just a tad there sometimes as they say "life just gets in the way" but while some of that is true F.I.B's been mostly busy getting ready to participate in an art show in Pontiac, Michigan of all places.
So take your vitamins and get your rest on Friday because Saturday is just chock full of MUST DO's! First off it's: Go to Rocketship Comics on Smith Street and get your free comic book. They are having some events there, click this link to find out more. Then it's on to :The following elected officials have confirmed attendance: NYS Senator Velmanette Montgomery, NYS Assemblywoman Joan Millman, NYS Assemblyman Hakeem Jeffries, NYC Councilwoman Letitia James, NYC Councilman Bill Deblasio, NYC Councilman David Yassky, NYC Councilman Tony Avella.
I heard DeBlasio has changed his mind about the Atlantic Yards. I heard him on WNYC yesterday and he also changed his mind about IKEA in Red Hook. Too bad it's been built already, is he for real?
Develop Don't Destroy Brooklyn sez:
So come on out on May 3rd -- bring your friends, join your neighbors, fellow New Yorkers, elected officials and community leaders in telling Governor Paterson:
** No More Demolitions!
** No More Eminent Domain!
** No More Subsidies!
** No More Changes to Infrastructure!
whew! and after that head over to Matchless in Greenpoint for some dinner and dancing at:I heard that it's the coolest Hullabaloo out of all Hullaballoos. An all day music marathon, with the best dj's in town and bbq included all for the amazing low price of FIVE count them FIVE BUCKS!
Matchless is at the corner of Manhattan Ave & Driggs Ave in Greenpernt.
Starts at 4pm goes till about 2 am.
So there you go some low brow fun with a little community activism mixed in for that ying yang effect.
