Best hidden bar in w'burg

Capones, on N 9th. The sign is the vertical dark thing on the wall, just above the small door. It was named after a speakeasy in Chicago where Al Capone used to hang out. The original bar and two stained-glass windows from that speakeasy have been brought here. Its worth checking out.

Cody on 7th and havermeyer

Turns out to be a hair stylist (surprise) at Robert Cree in Manhattan.

Most used Fitness Parcourse

So many of these you see around the country sit idle or barely used, but this Parcourse (fitness stations) is always in use when I pass by it at McCarren Park. What a great place to exercise - outdoors and free.

Most used parcourse

This does't look right.

This does't look right. I certainly will not be standing under it during the next wind storm.

Xootr Push Scooters and Kick Scooters

Xootr Push Scooters and Kick Scooters

The very best way (well, maybe a close second to running) to get around when you are detouring is the XOOTR. I have been a fan for many years, and had my Xootr Street model for about 3 years. I heart xootrs. They are truly well-built, lightweight adult sized kickscooters that roll easily and are a blast to ride.

I was visiting the xootr site to buy a carrying strap, which attaches to the scooter so you can carry it easily when it is folded up, when I saw a beautiful model that was not availble when I got mine.

The Xootr MG has a dark charcoal colored, magnesium deck that is SO cool looking. Plus, at 9.9 lbs, it weighs a whole pound less than mine, and is $40 less. If only they took trade-ins . . .

Heather, this one's for you.

Nice hat seen at Union Square

Actually, the whole outfit is pretty special. He's probably an up-and-coming designer.

Truth in advertising

Best Tag sale poster to date. It states "crap you don't need . . . at a price you won't believe!

Today, between Meeker and Havermeyer, on 7th, in Williamsburg (just in case you DO need crap).
