Blog of the Day: Boutique of the Week

Found this blog’s author on Yelp – but it’s totally awesome and I think it will re-vamp my shopping in the city.  Here she reviews one of my favorite boutiques in the city, Pippin – where I found my clocky and favorite topaz ring.

“Pippin Vintage Jewelry is like entering a flea market without the haggling patrons and piles of junk.  With vintage pieces discovered mainly on the East Coast, this boutique offers a variety of affordable items from pearl strands, brass watches, turqoise rings and even clip-on earrings.  Their eclectic collection spans from the pre-1900s to the 1980s, but they also have some re-worked pieces like Victorian jacket buttons made into rings (around $40).  Their prices are affordable and not typical of Manhattan, with the range from $1-$200+.  You can find a great necklace or ring for $25, and the higher-end diamonds and rubies are displayed inside the glass case.

Pippin has enough eccentric pieces that you can make your own creation, like antique keys that could be added to a long layering necklace, or pins that could double as barrettes.  When looking through the packed store, make sure to take some time and open the shallow drawers filled with random extras that cost less than $5 and make you feel like you you’ve discovered a treasure at the bottom of the bargain bin (without the actual rummaging).

Jewelry is not their only specialty, they also have a wide variety of accessories including vintage bags, clutches, belts, scarves, gloves, hats, and more, such as a cosmetic carved mirror from a 1920s Norwegian cruise ship ($30).  Also check out their vintage home goods store next door, where you can find Bauhaus vases, 1950s Coca-Cola crates, and even obscure black-and-white photos for $1.”

Now that you know my jewelry secret shopping spot (located on 17th St. between 6th & 7th) go here for more ideas from this blog.

Donuts destroy sewer system

In case you didn’t know already, donuts can do harm.

“The suit details problems with the plant dating as far back as 2004, describing a sewer facility permeated by the smell of doughnuts, pipes clogged with corrosive slime and the resulting raw sewage leaks that eventually shut down the southern Fairfax sewer system.

At one point, public works officials ran a closed-circuit camera along a pipe to show the grease deposits, only to get the camera stuck in the buildup.”

Oh dear.

Arlington Rap

Most of our bloggers and readers are probably not familar with Arlington, but it’s the city right outside DC where all the preppy types live. This video is taking the DC area by storm and has already gotten a write up in the Washington Post. I like the line about tapas.

Women of Wall Street- new exhibit eeeee!

I recommend that everyone stop by the Museum of American Finance on 48 Wall St. and check out the new exhibition that is opening tomorrow, Women of Wall Street. I am totally excited because I helped in it’s creation- I wrote a couple of the labels, did some research, picked out some of the featured artifacts, and helped with the setup. I think the opening tomorrow is sold out or full or something but I totally recommend that everyone stop by. If I’m around and still interning, I’ll totally give you a personal tour. SCAN0100

From NYT blog…

These past two years have not been kind to the women on Wall Street. Of course, they have not been very kind to anyone. But women executives, a minority in this male-dominated world, have suffered some especially high-profile setbacks.

Sallie L. Krawcheck, the chief executive and chairman for Citi Global Wealth Management, stepped down in a power struggle with the chief executive. Zoe Cruz, a president of Morgan Stanley, was ousted in a shakeup. And Erin Callan, who had ascended to become Lehman Brothers‘ chief financial officer, was pushed out in the early stages of that firm’s collapse.

Even among the lower ranks, the mass downsizing of financial firms has been accompanied by accusations of discrimination.

Nonetheless, women will show up in force next Tuesday for the opening reception for the new “Women on Wall Street” exhibit at the Museum of American Finance. It has generated a lot of interest. “I can’t remember selling out an opening reception,” said Kristin Aguilera, a spokeswoman for the museum. She said they capped the registration at 250 people.

The exhibit, which will run through Jan. 16, is divided into contemporary and historical female figures on Wall Street. The contemporary segment includes interviews with Ms. Krawcheck; Abby Joseph Cohen, a senior investment strategist at Goldman Sachs who made her mark calling the bull market of the 1990s; and Nancy B. Peretsman, the influential head of the media group at the investment bank Allen & Company.

In many ways, the historical figures have the most striking stories. Many made their mark when Wall Street was more insular and misogynistic than it is now. They include a first lady, a self-proclaimed presidential candidate, and the world’s richest (and most miserly) woman.

I don’t know if you saw the amazing fireworks tonight…

But I did and it was awesome. Did I mention that I have an amazing roof where I can see all of midtown?

The Queensboro Bridge (aka 59th Street Bridge) turns 100 years old this year and New York City is marking the occasion with a fireworks display by Grucci and a week-long Queensboro Bridge Centennial celebration.

The Queensboro Bridge Centennial fireworks display will be designed and produced by Grucci, “America’s first family of fireworks.” New York’s own Gruccis have directed firework displays for seven U.S. Presidential inaugurations, and four Olympic games.

Blog of the Day: What Chuck Wore

This blog confused me at first because I thought it was called “What Chuck Whore.”  Now I realize that it’s actually a blog dedicated the fashion of Chuck Bass on GossipGirl which is actually a subject entirely worthy of its own blog. Congrats to the costume designers or wardrobe people or whatever they’re called. Check it out HERE. Also I love the blog’s tagline “…why does he wear so much purple?”

What do you know about Tally Hall?

1. Tally Hall is this band.  2. The band is full of cute boys (which one is your favorite I don’t even know who can pick just one?).  3.  These cute boys sing awesome songs that are pop-like and fun.  4.  They have a hilarious-super-internet show that Drew briefly participated in dressed as Waldo and he animated some stuffs.

Actually, I saw Tally Hall TWICE this weekend, yeah, really I did – once at the Mercury Lounge in New York and once in Westport, CT.  Here they are:

and this might be my favorite new song of theirs, but I love the last CD too.

Do I sound like a fan girl?  Pshhhh I’m okay with that.  Also these guys are nice and I’ve met them so YEAH i’m THAT COOL.  hehe.

New Exhibition at the City Reliquary

My favorite museum (which just happens to almost next door my favorite restaurant, Black Betty’s- see below) is having an opening reception this weekend for their new exhibition. I might try to go but I’m going to be in CT shopping for the antiques and such. I would definitely recommend visiting sometime though- I met one of the curators a couple of weekends ago and she assured me that it was going to be awesome.

The Candela Structures

A New York City History Mystery
curated by: Kirsten Hively and Paul Lukas

Reception to be held at:

The City Reliquary Museum370 Metropolitan Av. Williamsburgh, Brooklyn This Saturday May 16th, 2009 From 7 – 10 P.M.(On view through June 28th)For more information, visit:http://www.cityreliquary.org

RIP Black Betty’s

This is my FAVORITE restuarant in Brooklyn. I’ve had so many good times and so many memories there. I had my birthday party there 2 years ago and now I won’t be able to order their seared salmon salad or their spicey artichoke soup anymore. I am going to attempt to OD on everything before they close June 15th. sniffle.

From Brooklyn Vegan

“After 10 years, Williamsburg Live-Music Haven and Mediterranean Eatery Shuts Doors”

Black Betty (spreetaper)
Black Betty

“Bud Schmeling and Sandy Glover, owners of Black Betty, announced the long-time Williamsburg boite and eatery will close its doors, effectively Monday, June 15th 2009.”The sad news came a month after the owners posted a message to MySpace stating that they needed money, but that “Black Betty is not closed, nor closing. We have signed a new 10 year lease…” According to the new statement (which you can read in full below), the lease “was renewed for 10 years at the end of April 2009, however the lease was also offered to other perspective candidates under more lucrative terms…” Long story short, it is closing.

Lots of changes on that block. Black Betty is right across the street from the in-development Knitting Factory Brooklyn (ex-Luna Lounge) (which we still don’t have an official update on, though all signs and rumors point to the place re-opening some time this summer, possibly as a seated venue).

Say goodbye to Black Betty by having a drink and/or seeing a show there one more time (or for your first time). Options include The Phenomenal Handclap Band, who played Southpaw last night, and who are playing there tonight (May 13). Full schedule, including Antibalas, and full goodbye note, below…

Black Betty

– Bud Schmeling and Sandy Glover, owners of Black Betty, announced the long-time Williamsburg boite and eatery will close its doors, effectively Monday, June 15th 2009.

According to Schmeling and Glover, the Metropolitan Avenue in Brooklyn, NY lease was renewed for 10 years at the end of April 2009, however the lease was also offered to other perspective candidates under more lucrative terms. At the end of the battle, Schmeling and Glover conceded and agreed to close by mid June. “We are saddened and heart-broken that this is the end of the Black Betty era,” said Glover. “But at this time we’re focusing on what a fantastic place Betty means to Brooklyn bands, DJs and of course all of our amazing patrons and friends” she added.

“We’re working really hard to make the next couple of months loaded with great music and entertainment,” says Schmeling. “May 7th will mark a true celebration of 10 years dedicated to Williamsburg with a tribute to our House DJs and honestly, the outreach from the community has really been incredible.”

Local bands, DJs and performers are lining up to fill the remaining nightly slots, with Rev. Vince Anderson and His Love Choir scheduled to perform the last night, Monday June 15th. The kitchen and bar, offering North African and Mediterranean dishes and extended happy hours, will be in full swing until close. Demand for Black Betty t-shirts have been pouring in and will be available for sale at the 10th Anniversary Party on May 7th.

ABOUT BLACK BETTY/ Since its spring opening in 1999, Black Betty has gained a reputation as a “pioneer” and “Superman of Williamsburg nightlife.” Founders Bud Schmeling and Sandy Glover compiled their world travel experiences to transform the once gangster clad Highway Lounge into a hipster sanctuary and Moroccan delight, fondly referred to as “Trashablanca.” A true urban oasis, Black Betty beckons Williamsburg locals and tourists alike who crave an array of delectable Mid-Eastern eats, and an eclectic mix of live performers. Nightly live music and DJ spin masters serve up everything from Brazilian rock to soul funk, playing second only to the eclectic Mediterranean/ North African fare.

The Generational: Younger Than Jesus

Has anyone been to the New Museum recently and checked out their triennial exhibition? I’m curious to see what people think. I should organize an outing to see it- it’s up until July 5th.

screen-capture2

screen-capture-12

I was just looking over the artists and was excited to see one I already knew- Brendan Fowler. I followed his music a couple of years ago via Barr (this song is the single and the single sucks).  It appears that he is playing on June 12th with MEN. Anyone interested?

From New Museum website…

To listen to BARR is to jump into Brendan Fowler’s head, to enter a jumble of memory, laughter, fear and perseverance. His songs are built from tiny, heart-tugging piano melodies, insistent drumming, and a singular voice that is as relentlessly obsessive and anxious as it is cheerful and celebratory. These distinctive qualities have made BARR a popular favorite at both underground venues like The Smell and legendary performance spaces like The Kitchen.

MEN is a Brooklyn-based band and art/performance collective that focuses on the energy of live performance and radical potential of dance music. Comprised of JD Samson (Le Tigre), Johanna Fateman (Le Tigre), Michael O’Neill (Princess), Ginger Brooks Takahashi (The Ballet) and Emily Roysdon, the group speaks to issues such as wartime economies, sexual compromise, and demanding liberties. Propulsive, literate, and subtly complex, their songs draw upon the history of subversive music, from Talking Heads to Timbaland, to create a breathless, future-minded sound

So, these two videos are awesome. Yeah, one is Taylor Swift’s video for her song about how much she loves her mom. It makes me think about watching home videos with my dad. I love doing that. So yeah, here’s the video that will make you cry, but don’t worry, there’s a video that will make you laugh your balls or ovaries off that I posted after it.

So here’s the video that’s hilarious and probably the best video ever. So best it’s the best of everything.

You: Creepy man walking cat on a leash – 26 (Upper West Side)

Me: Preppy white guy in a polo and jeans. I saw you last May in Central Park. You had curly hair, a black jacket and looked very skeezy and odd. You were walking your cat on a leash.

I didn’t talk to you, but I wish I had. Why did your cat have a leash? Why were you walking your cat in the first place? Is your cat a ferocious animal that will attack others on sight without the leash? Do you secretly want a dog but are allergic to them?

So many questions I wanted to ask. So many answers I never received. So many missed opportunities. A lifetime of regrets.

this was on craigslist.. thx liz!  i belive i know the answer though : cats run away, you would have to leash them.  also, i have totally wanted to walk Meetza.  also, this is a long time to wait to write into craigslist.. a whole year this poor prepster has been tortured!

Blog of the Day: Cats Are Always Doing Shit

Even though I’ve seen a couple of these videos/pics before, there are still a lot of funny cat videos that were new to me and that makes this site catriffic.

Cats are always up to something. This blog offers documentary proof of their possibly sinister activities: photos and videos of cats behaving in odd, suspicious, devious and destructive ways.

For example….

invisible car

from wooster….

Sara Watson, a design student studying drawing at the University of Central Lancashire, spent three weeks taking a battered old Skoda and making it “disappear” by painting it so that it blends in with the surrounding area.

The BBC reports that the car is now being used as advertising for the local recycling firm that donated the vehicle.
