Hi! Hi there! Hi! Boo!
Ah….boo! There you are. I see you! Did you forget about your Auntie Whole Foods? You have, haven’t you, you widdle-biddle-Brooklyn consumer! Yes you are! Yes you are!
Where have you been? You remember how excited you were to see me last month? What happened? Have you been thinking about me? I’ve been thinking about you!
Back in July, the website Brokelyn threw a party at Williamsburg’s Crown Victoria that it dubbed “Salute Your Jorts.” The theme of the evening was summer camp. A “bug juice cocktail” was just $4. In addition to Ping-Pong and bocce, the planned activities included spin the bottle and making friendship bracelets and macaroni art. Attendees were told, “don’t forget clean undies, just in case they get strung up the flagpole.” It sounded horrible, the low-water mark of a trend in recent years of turning bars into amusement parks for adults.
