    Sunday was my most hipster day yet. It included brunch, an art gallery, and some record stores. All in Bushwick.

    did you bring your dog to the dog run then do some ghetto workouts at Maria Hernandez park?


    I once saw a huge 90lbs pitt bull in the dog run at Maria Hernandez just sitting by the bench no owner in sight. 20min later a huge dude still sweaty and jacked up doing his ghetto workouts whistles and the pitt bull trots and then jumps over the 5 foot fence goes to his owner and they walk towards knickerbocker street.

    never been to that park. We avoid dog runs, too many crappy owners out there.

    ended up buying 5 or 6 records. I don't own a record player, but my brother does, and I'm going to mail them to him. $5-6 each, not bad.

    there's no merit when either of you two say it though.

    if dopey were to come in here and bitch and moan about the weather, then you know it's crappy out instead of just 71 with a dew point of 65.

    there's this salad place I'll go to for lunch every now and then. I always hope I get this one chick who does a better job than others.


    Saturday night I saw this chick in my neighborhood making out with some other chick :slayer:

    Unless I'm missing some euphemism, I don't get how her liking girls improves your odds of having her prepare your salad.

    Popped into Gansevoort Market to get a post lunch snack and ended up with a chocolate chip cookie from the coffee place. Got back to my desk and I was sorely disappointed by how completely shitty this $3.50 cookie was #neveragain

    was it vegan?


    I do have access to awesome cookies in Tribeca. Bringing back a tray of them for my co-workers usually makes me a hero for an hour.

    Why does it "annoy" you?

    Some buildings are pet friendly. Some are not......and have the right to be that way.

    Being an animal lover is all well and good...but some places do not want to have to deal with barking, potential aggressiveness, etc. Kinda straight fwd.

    I love dogs but I wouldn't want to live in a building that allowed them.

    not the yes/no pet policy, but breed selection politics. IMO, if you're going to be pricks about deciding which dogs can and can't be in your building, then actually have a case ... no, a working class dog probably won't do well in a small apartment in a big city, no, you can't have your 2-year-old dalmatian hang out in the apartment for 12 hours a day while you're out at work, and if you don't want an "aggressive dog", then my mother's yorkie wouldn't be good in your building ... and on and on and on. Or make it case by case even.

    I'm not a fan of the blanket "no pitbulls, no rottweilers, no german shepherds", which is what happens all the time. I think some of it boils down to landlords not wanting "undesirable" people in their building, and this is one way to help that.
