Book and Tag Sale at powerHouse Arena

I like books. I’m one of those. I also like bookstores that aren’t boring and sterile. My skin shrivels a little when I walk past the Barnes & Noble on Court St. near my apartment and I feel a blast of recycled chilled air and see the sign for “religious self-help.” Next.

Luckily places like powerHouse Arena still exist. It’s not an actual arena, although it is shaped like one: they sell books there, and sometimes host interesting discussions with authors of said books. I’ve heard Colum McCann and Frank Bruni read there before. And right now, they’re having a sale. Books ‘n’ shit for 50 – 95% off. They sell a lot of lovely photo books as well as great fiction and non. Go get ‘em. You’ve got until September 6th.

Polina Yamshchikov - Flirt Poor

Polina is Siberian by way of Alabama, and therefore cannot pronounce "fire" or "iron" correctly but despite this can still woo men with her cooking skills and enormous Russian cheeks. She can usually be spotted on the streets of Brooklyn either yelling into a cell phone in one of five languages or swilling gin at an inappropriate hour of the morning.
