When: Thursday, August 13, 6pm
Sorry I won't be around to advise you on your social lives until I come back August 5th.
Until then, I leave you with a glimpse of the beautiful hairy men I will be experiencing at the festival. You'll stay busy gawking at them until my return.

5. Pete Seeger
Bat Mitzvah of our dearest friend,
Lauren Rebecca Bellhouse
Wednesday, the 29th of July, 2009
104 Eldridge Street, The Lower East Side, NYC
It’s LAUpalooza 2009
But get ready to boogie like its 1999
Coke & Pepsi, Electric Slide, and other classics will be
played throughout the evening.
November 6th at the United Palace (I love this venue...saw Sigur Ros here...it's beautiful!)
November 8th at the Beacon Theater
Tickets go on sale next Friday, July 31st.
Bikes + Beer = one of my favorite combinations (though helmet is REQUIRED!!)
The Gate is turning its taps over to the perfect summer time brew, wheat beer*, for what seems to be becoming its annual White Out.
I have to work at The Park Slope Food Coop until 8:45 tonight, but who's down to head over there afterwards?!
*Matt, I know you're allergic to wheat beer, but you always seem to drink it anyways despite the sneezing, so don't feel excluded from partaking in this.
My shift is tomorrow night at the Park Slope Food Coop. Probably one of the greatest things I've decided to do since moving to Brooklyn. I hope I have hot celebrities working next to me as I stock the shelves...
ALLY AND I NEED A NAME FOR OUR NEW BREW!
Wondering how to win free tix to events?
Nat Osborn, take note:
Bar extras: Come next summer, it’s all soccer, all the time, as the pub will serve as an official bar of the 2010 World Cup. Fans won’t have to wait that long to catch a game, though: On weekends, the bar will open early to show football matches, offering patrons full English breakfasts — eggs, beans, toast, sausage, and grilled tomatoes — while they watch.
To celebrate, we're turning the clock back to 1999 and announcing the Lost & Gone Forever Ten Year Anniversary Tour -- 9 very special evenings with Guster. No opener. Two sets, one of which will be the album in its entirety. Yes, even Two Points for Honesty and Rainy Day. I haven't decided if we should play the album in order or in shuffle mode. Any thoughts?"
I'm in awe just from seeing the pictures on their website, so can't wait to experience them live.
What is Pilobolus?
Pilobolus began, in 1971, as an outsider dance company, and quickly became renowned the world over for its imaginative and athletic exploration of creative collaboration. Nearly 40 years later, it has evolved into a pioneering American cultural institution of the 21st century.

"Because playing is better than working, Metro Metro offers a night of classic board games in a competitive arena. Teams of four will compete round robin-style in a variety of games like: Trivial Pursuit, Jenga, Connect Four, Operation and more. The winningest team brings home the gold"...
I know you're all as equally nerdy as I am, so let's do this!
R.I.P. McCarren Pool...
This summer's parties have moved to the Williamsburg Waterfront.
Despite the change in locale, there will still be:
- Kiddie pools
- Enough ridiculously dressed people to keep you thoroughly entertained all afternoon.
Brooklyn Bowl just opened in Williamsburg.
Check out the Making of Brooklyn Bowl (thanks Matt).
i want to go see this film.
kind of obsessed with Zooey Deschanel. (500) Days of Summer opens this weekend!
I want the hot/slighty nerdy guy that works at SIP to ask me out the next time I go there to buy a bottle of overpriced wine.
I only go there for you, you know! I could be going to that ghetto place on 4th Ave. But no, I don't. I buy your $15 Rioja so that I can attempt to flirt with you at checkout. I really just can't afford this anymore. So come on. Step it up.
And it's always fucking awesome.
Date: July 18th
Time: noon-9:00 p.m. or whenever we get into Totonno's.
Location: Coney Island (take the Q!)
Bikeable?: probably not... too many poor hipsters there who will want to steal your bike.
Especially my new home in the fabulous borough of Brooklyn.
The energy of this city is addictive. So much to do in every genre of activity imaginable. Yes, it's overwhelming.
But that's where I come in.
Come on, people. Let's not kid ourselves. I know what's going on.
As your unofficial Social Coordinator of Brooklyn & Beyond, I will attempt to compile all the events that I want to go to. Y'all know I'm big into music, so upcoming concerts will certainly be a highlight. But art, dance, films, restaurants, bars, you name it. You better believe I'll be on top of my shit.
My friends - let the M.Block Blog guide you through this crazy city of ours, and join me in taking advantage of all it has to offer. Ok, maybe not all. But at least some of the good stuff.
So here we go...
