Water-balloon dodgeball for a worthy cause

You’re only a little more than halfway through the workweek and feeling full-on postal. We understand. So we’re telling you this because, frankly, we’re tired of reading about Steven the JetBlue flight attendant and Jenny the HOPA girl. Take out your frustration Saturday, at Greenpoint Open Studios‘ dodgeball-style water-balloon-fight fundraiser for their big event (Oct. 1-3). It’s $10 to play, which gets you hurling water balloons for a good cause and a sweet raffle ticket to boot. If you’re on the winning team and your number’s drawn, you’ll win half the entire amount raised.

And if the opportunity to de-stress by reverting to your ornery, indiscreet seven-year-old self isn’t enough to get you there, consider the fact that the day’s all for the Studios—an event that supports local artists and businesses, and turns Greenpoint into one gigantic art exhibit for your enjoyment.

So whether you’re imagining that the water-logged projectile you’re chucking is your boss’s face, or you’re attempting to recreate the pre-carnage spring break scene from Piranha 3D, you can participate with gusto knowing your karma is intact. Saturday, Aug. 28, 3 p.m., in front of the India Street Mural Project (on India St. between West St. and the East River).
