Hey New York City,
I hope you all enjoyed the brief heat wave we had on Sunday, a whopping 40 degree weather melting all that dirty snow. Well we are now right back at being freezing with even more ice now, even the East River is frozen over. March is around the corner and soon it will be Spring, what a wonderful thought while I try not to lose my sanity.

I would like to kick off the newsletter with a shout out to my beloved Gotham Girls Roller Derby who are back for their 11th season. The first bout of the 2015 season Brooklyn Bombshells vs. Manhattan Mayhem is on Saturday, March 14 at John Jay College. Get your tickets now as I am sure this will be sold out.  Join the Gotham Girls Roller Derby this Saturday as they officially debut the league’s newest skaters at the annual Derbytaunt Ball at The Paper Box!

He has consistently made records nationally and internationally, every one to two years, spanning the 1980′s into the next Millennium 2000. Get your $15 advance tickets HERE!

Hey New York City,
Happy Fashion Week, Valentine’s Day, and Washington’s birthday, which means extra long weekend to par-tay!

I am personally not all that into Valentine’s Day; I don’t care for the ridiculous spike in prices for flowers and special dinner packages, but I am aware that it’s wise to have a plan if you have a special someone, especially when Valentine’s Day is on a Saturday this year (and they are 8 months pregnant with your child *cough*). For you, we have four awesome V-Day parties  for you and a special tickets giveaway for Thirsty Girl Productions‘ “Filthy Gorgeous Burlesque Valentine’s Spectacular” at Le Poisson Rouge!! RSVP here with the subject line “SHAW me the Filthy Gorgeous Tickets” in the event section and write us a quick note on why we should give you a pair of tickets. Hint: We love a good laugh and a funny story. If you don’t care much for giveaways, you can get your tickets HERE!

For my wife, JD, I got her an early gift of a prenatal massage and dinner tonight followed by tickets to Adios ballet at BAM Fischer.  Ladies sure do appreciate dance and it was something different than the usual nightlife for my gal who isn’t into partying at 32 weeks pregnant.

Our dear friend, Jess Marquis, is teaming up with DJ Andie Cassette to present KILL CITY this Friday at The Studio at Webster Hall. With Jess Marquis’ team of top notch hosts featuring One-half Nelson, Erickatoure Aviance, Lydia Vengeance, Kiss, Bible Girl & Akynos with a tag line saying: “No one gets out alive in Kill City!”and it comes complete with it’s own video/DJ set to get people pumped:

Bootie Mashup Top 10 – February 2015

BootieTop10_logoBootie Mashup Top 10
February 2015 Edition!

Best of Bootie 02.2015

From the BOOTIE MASHUP creators & DJs:

Oh, Bootie Top 10, it has been WAY too long. Several things contributed to this, actually. Frankly, there simply wasn’t a lot of stellar mashup material that we felt particular strong about. So instead, we focused on our Halloween and Christmas mixtapes, and of course, the annual Best of Bootie 2014 album. But right after the New Year, we discovered a bunch of great stuff, including quite a few older tracks that had fallen through the cracks or that had grew on us. We whittled it down to these ten, but there’s always more on the way.

Hey NYC,
As our City is currently covered in ice for the 2nd week straight, it is the time when our West Coast friends are so cruelly reminding us of how warm and sunny it is out on the beach. It’s an important time to remind ourselves that this is the worst part of living here and it is all worth it; NYC is still the best and most fun cities there is. Hang in there my friends, better days are coming!

Speaking of looking ahead, I would like to remind you that Valentine’s Day is on a Saturday this year, more time to par-tay, so check out our V-Day events below so you can plan ahead!
