313 Ready for Halloween

If you’ve walked down Clinton this week, you’ve seen the set at 313 Clinton Avenue.  You may have even seen a rehearsal or two!

Shows start Friday at 5:30 and run every half-hour or so until 9ish.  The theme?  High School Musi-Ghoul.  You’ll want to catch the dance finale, choreographed by yours truly.

our set!

NYC Marathon: SUNDAY, NOV 2

Anyone who’s lived in the ‘hood for more than a year should be eagerly anticipating this Sunday’s big neighborhood event: The NYC Marathon!

The marathon runs straight down Lafayette Avenue, through Fort Greene and Clinton Hill into Bed-Stuy, from Ashland to Bedford.

Crowds fill the streets, high school marching bands replay the Rocky theme, people wave signs and call out the names of the runners, people blast sound systems.  It’s really quite inspiring (especially to me this year, nursing a sprained ankle).

Lots of people have Marathon brunches for friends- it’s a great day to invite people out to Clinton Hill!

Updates at Il Porto

Il Porto, the tremendously tasty new brick-oven pizza outfit on Washington near Flushing now has a beer/wine license (to fill out that huge bar they have in the sit-down dining room!).

I checked out brunch a few weekends ago, and it was delish.  The portions were ginormous.  And there is absolutely no reason why you can’t have the dessert pizza after the crabmeat eggs benedict.

Didn’t have the camera, as I was meeting friends with a new baby, and just wanted to socialize, but trust me.  Giant. Portions.
