This weekend is Mulchfest 2012, which is the chance to do something good with that fire hazard of a Christmas tree, and not, as you might have worried, the most awful smelling jam band concert of all time. Bring your tree to one of the chipping locations throughout the borough either day from 10am-2pm. The city will chip it and use the mulch to nourish trees on streets and gardens citywide. Or you can get your own bag of mulch for your own garden type thing. If you can’t lug your tree, there’s also drop-off sites and curbside pickup you can take advantage of. Check the official Mulchfest site to find a drop off or chipping location.
They've got telescopes and binoculars and are ready to watch, "up to 20 meteors per hour," during the shower's peak this weekend.
Feelin' frisky today, eh Parks Department?
Christmas is over, and it's time for us to leave all that crap about kindness towards our fellow human and hearts bursting with charity...
