Hello New York City,
How about the blizzard of the history of Earth?! Regardless of how significant it was, I’m glad everyone is safe and got to have a fun snow day (unless you didn’t, then I’m very sorry for you). I had a chance to take a half day off and took my very pregnant wife and two Boston Terriers to McCarren Park in Williamsburg, Brooklyn t0 have some outdoor fun. I wish we had some hills that were closer to us, all of those photos of people sledding at Prospect Park looked amazing. How did you spend your time?
I’ll jump start this week with a big party announcement: the return of the SHAW Promotion presents “Bootie NYC” mashup dance party at Gramercy Theatre on Friday, March 20.

The people at T Presents just love Brooklyn Night Bazaar with their frequent quality showcases. It’s a win win situation with T gets to “present”, BK Bazaar gets the talents and the fans get free music; I just can’t love BK bazaar enough. This week featuring live performance with Torres, Mainland, Hellotropes and Ancient Ocean on Friday and Crocodiles and The Teen Age on Saturday.
This Saturday Queen Majesty will be presenting and spinning all vinyl Reggae selections at “Jamaica Rock Brunch” at Baby’s All Right. Free and open to everyone, bottomless brunches ($30 for all you can drink Mimosas, Bloody’s, and Greyhounds with choice of brunch dish), plus a make-your-own Bloody Mary bar with over 20 types of hot sauce including Queen Majesty Hot Sauce and more! We will definitely be there, although JD is really bummed she can’t participate in the Bloody Mary bar. We hope to see you too!
