Anybody can come up with an idea, but not everybody has the money to execute it. It seems you’re either blessed with one or the other. Think, for every five buck happy hour draft that’s inspired you with a half-buzzed idea you never saw to fruition, you can donate that money to some people who actually have their shit together, or who are at least good at faking it. Check out these five Brooklyn-based Kickstarters that you can help, well, kickstart. (more…)

Calling all couples and those looking for love – November 30 through December 9 Queens Theatre is bringing to NYC a show that doesn’t hide behind the fluffy, mushy romance of what the world hopes marriage to be. You Say Tomato, I Say Shut Up! is a new comedy based on the dysfunctional marriage of the writers, Annabelle Gurwitch (Dinner and a Movie, Fired!) and Jeff Kahn (Ben Stiller Show, Forty Year Old Virgin), who expose the raw and untold truth of ‘til death do us part.’ this hilarious new comedy is sure to strike both laughter and terror into the hearts of any couple by offering a hilarious glimpse into a relationship that seems doomed by opposing personalities from the start. Gurwitch and Kahn’s delightfully crazy lifestyle manages to keep their relationship intact, up-ending every idea you ever had about living ‘happily ever after’.
“So funny because it’s so accurate. Kahn and Gurwitch illuminate the insanity of marriage. They make you want to embrace your spouse for the same reason you want to strangle them.” -Ben Stiller

Maybe your little brother is a 9/11 conspiracy theorist. Let’s say he watched that documentary on Netflix and tried to persuade your whole family over Thanksgiving dinner that it was an inside job. What you’d do is get this Truth Serum, hunt down George Tenet, give it to him and then ask him all the questions you want so your little brother will shut up already. Of course, we suggest starting out with easier questions and working your way up to the conspiracy theories. Here are some things we’d like to ask people. Donald Trump, is that your real hair? Abe from Breaking Amish, are you Rebecca’s baby daddy? Mom, who’s your favorite child? Victoria, do you really have a secret?

You’re in luck! 5 Borough Ladies Arm Wrestling (5 BLAW) is holding its annual championships at Public Assembly in Williamsburg this Saturday, and it’s free to watch. There will be theatrics galore as eight lady arm-wrestlers compete in a round-robin style tournament complete with an MC, referees, heckling, celebrity judges, performances, culminating in a dance party, all in the name of feminism and charity. Find out more reasons why you should go, and marvel at my use of alliteration. (more…)
For all of you brokesters avoiding the Lower East Side because it’s too expensive, Transportation Alternatives is sponsoring the first Bike-Friendly Business Bike Tour this Saturday. TA tour guides will take you to some of the 150 businesses that make up the city’s first “Bike Friendly Business District.” Those are businesses that support safe riding and better bike infrastructure in the city by offering discounts and freebies to bike riders.
Surprised that the city’s first official bike-friendly business neighborhood is in Manhattan? So are we, especially since this writer sees the area as second only to Sixth Avenue in near-death experiences on his commute to Midtown. But TA does great work all over the city (remember free bike valet parking at Googa Mooga?) and you can still get other bike discounts in BK through BikeNYC. It’s also a chance to get great discounts at restaurants, salons, and art institutions and support business bike love. Did we mention there’s free food on the tour? (more…)
