Sashay Away to FREE Zumba Classes Every Wednesday in Williamsburg

I, like many others, love myself a little Latin flavor. I also– like many others– enjoy gyrating in a semi-slutty way, while wearing stretchy pants, and a ponytail, and sweating out all of my toxins in a roomful of other ladies doing the same thing. What I’m describing here is

FREE Wine Tastings at Bottlerocket in Greenwich Village

Wine culture is honestly something that Two-Buck Chuck-swiggin’ simpleton like me just doesn’t understand, but I sure am willing to learn!  Especially when said wine is FREE.  For this reason, you can pretty much count on finding me slurring my words while clutching the shit out of a wine glass

FREE Zine Exhibition and Opening Celebration at Brooklyn College

Zines are a broke-ass creative’s best friend.  They’re hella cheap to make, independently published, and– just like Pokemon cards– super fun to collect and trade ‘cause you gotta catch ‘em all.  Zines are the best, which is why I am so excited for Brooklyn College Library’s new zine section (as

Phone Home at a FREE Showing of E.T.– This Thursday Under the Brooklyn Bridge

Summer in New York City means many things to me:  rooftop BBQs, beach trips, pit-stained white tops.  It also means FREE movie screenings in DUMBO’s Brooklyn Bridge Park, which are pretty much the highlight of my summer.  Set against the gorgeous backdrop of the glittering Manhattan skyline, the park’s Movies
