Party Like Your Neighborhood Depends on It

If you’ve been to Williamsburg or Greenpoint and looked at a tree or a bike rack, you know all about Neighbors for Allied Good Growth (NAG). NAG is a grassroots, volunteer organization that fixes tree beds, fights for waterfront park space, finishes bike racks for installation and distributes flower seeds to throw into empty lots. Tomorrow night, they’re throwing a holiday party at The Woods bar in Williamsburg. To raise money for future projects, they’re having a silent auction of items from local places like Cafe Grumpy, Word Bookstore, 3rd Ward, Treehouse, etc. So you can help protect park space in the burg, and get your mom/dog/sister/great aunt something awesome for Christmas. Even if you don’t bid on anything, the NAG volunteers are good people to know. Also, The Woods has an excellent select of cheap beers in cans and a taco truck on the patio.

Kiley E - Ragamuffin Researcher

After years of denial, Kiley has finally admitted to baring a striking resemblance to Velma from Scooby Doo. Instead of traveling in a van hunting ghosts, she prefers wandering on foot in search of tacos, cheap beer, and fake birds. Growing up in Portland, Kiley enjoyed the balance of urban and green spaces. Then she spent her four years at Ithaca College, and found herself craving more sprawling asphalt in her life. So she moved to Williamsburg, Brooklyn, where most of the buildings look like they're about to collapse. Kiley's favorite activities include: getting lost, crafting, sewing, biking, and geeking out at museums. Her love of taxidermy probably makes her a terrible vegetarian, but she doesn't care.
