As a native Bensonhurstian I am obligated to make the pilgrimage down Cristoforo Colombo Boulevard for the Feast of Saint Rosalia. Glad to see the entire neighborhood well represented. Some things never change...

And...

I'm sure the balloon darts game hawker is an enthusiastic scout for a professional dart playing team. That the annoying clown at Soak the Bloke is undergoing therapy for anger management. And that the guys working the fish bowl game are finding new homes for neglected goldfish.

But...

I have no idea how the folks selling zeppoles came to know that 14 is the perfect number of zeppoles for a $10 deal.

Caught in the act - one that's been going on for millennia. Dale Kaplan honoring the qualities of bread. A mural depicting bread's "primordial nature."

Great to see +Kenneth Ardito's debut, Stencil, last night. Featuring a host of subjects from popular culture. I watched Ken working on these pieces. A humble soul, I look forward to seeing more.

No Whole Foods all the way down here in Gravesend - and I'm happy for it! Grocery shopping at small businesses like  Pisa Pork Store on Avenue U and many others offers me a cornucopia of artisanal Brooklyn-ized ethnic foods. And it won't eat up my whole paycheck either!

I like to wear jeans and, honestly, hadn't put a lot of thought into it. Do they look good? Is the price right? This is as far as I'd take it. Despite European origins, blue jeans are as American† as apple pie - and, as I dis...

For about three years, I've been walking with a fractured toe and, eventually, a bone spur. Finally, after seeing a number of specialists and trying several custom orthotics, I went under the knife yesterday. I'm in some pain now and will be on crutches for a little while, but I'm looking past all this to a time when I can fully enjoy the experience of walking again. Something to add to ye ol' gratitude list.
