AND, to show support for these amazing musicians, I will be having a GIVE-AWAY right now on this blog (I feel so official)! Just leave a comment below (any ol' comment will do) and I will send you a CD of Bianca's new album + a CD of Mindy's new Christmas album! Is it just me or are you already excited for Christmas?? (I will have Danny choose a number by midnight eastern time on Thursday PM so we can choose a winner & get your little gift on it's way.)
AND.... if you can't make it Friday night,
Bianca is also singing in Brooklyn with her cellist the night before
(this Thursday, Nov. 8). It's FREE (!)
& it's in the Gowanus
(anyone in BK knows that stinky waterways are now in :)
If I ate gluten, I'd go to Four & Twenty Blackbirds prior (note: they close at 7:00 pm) for some of the Salted Caramel Apple Pie, the best pie on earth. Or I'd go to Prime Meats, Frankie's Spuntino, or Buttermilk Channel, three of THE best restaurants in Brooklyn (all on Court Street). Any of the above would make for the perfect Brooklyn date night.
Also, they will be selling some cool Brooklyn T-shirts (selling for 1 week only) designed by an artist in the city. The artists work will also be displayed at the event and proceeds will support environmental initiatives in the city. I'm all for it.
Lastly, I am all too excited (cause I am such an office supply dork) that these 2012 calendars from MUJI are FINALLY here! I use them every year. And they fit nicely into my little leather bag. I've been waiting for weeks to get my little 2012er.
OK, I really should be snuggling with my husband on the couch (one thing I never want to miss) while we watch Moby Dick. Off I go...
p.s. If anyone wants to get all floury & do some service, come make COOKIE MIX IN BULK for a homeless shelter fundraiser! Just email me if you'd like to come. A bunch of Brooklyn ladies are getting together Wed. (Nov. 9) @ 7:30 pm in Carroll Gardens to do some hard core cookie mixin'...cause this great organization called CAMBA needs our help. (They're putting cookie mix in their gala gift bags for their yearly gala fundraiser. ) Anyway, it should be fun. And you are all invited. And service is the best way to ensure you have a really good day.
