Down and Out: LES Story Telling at the Tenement Museum

You can sometimes forget that you are “down and out” in New York if you know where to go to live it up – of course we aren’t really THAT down and out if you think about it, but here is an example.  Last night I went to the awesome

FREE Vibrator at Babeland for Tax Day

I’ll shoot this one off since it is time sensitive. Today, the first 100 in store customers at Babeland get a FREE “Gold Digger” vibrator with its classy jewel studded base ($20 price tag, infinite value).  When the giveaway vibrator bucket is empty, the less enjoyable savings continue with Babeland

NYC Parks Are Free and have other free things

Despite gusty winds,  yesterday was a beautiful day.  Still, a bunch of us Mainers and a handful of Arkansans/Arkansanites/Arkansanivians  expressed guarded optimism,  the memory of past teaser days lingering.  Sure, 60 and sunny in January is no cause to lift expectations.   You take it at face value, maybe get a

Monthly Hipster Art Party Celebrates Eggbeater: FREE entry for “artists”

  Passover, Easter, the resurrection of Christ, and the exodus from Egypt will all be heartily ignored in favor of a non-discriminatory posting about a party celebrating something that clearly deserves acknowledgement: the eggbeater.  In my experience the bastard is hard to clean up – I always tried to lick
