Damn, what a week. Is everyone else as pooped as I am? (I’m tempted to speak for Cyrus and say “as we are,” since I didn’t see his sorry ass posting here the last two days either. Then again, I think he’s on single-parent duty this week.)

What’s happening beyond the narrow blinders of our downtown lives?

Officials fear Fort Greene Park won’t be big enough to house Spike Lee’s planned birthday bash for MJ a week from Saturday. [The Local]

Who walks in Brooklyn? Burn Some Dust does on Saturday, 8/22: “20
miles: Gravesend, Sheepshead Bay, Plum Beach, Floyd Bennett Field, Fort
Tilden, swimming at Breezy Point. Meet at southeast corner of Kings Hwy
and McDonald Ave in Brooklyn at 10 AM. Bring a swimsuit! There will
also be a bit of wandering through the woods, so you may want to
wear/bring long pants or high socks.” [Burn Some Dust (Click on Walk #40 on the calendar for details)]

More walking? Try Grymes Hill, Staten Island [FNY]

The Yoga Room is
offering a FREE Yoga class (accompanied by live drumming) on Pier 1 of
Gantry Plaza State Park, 9am-10:15am, Sunday 8/23. Please come early to set yourself
up; a mat, comfortable clothing, and a desire to have fun are all
that’s necessary to participate. 50th Ave & the East River, LIC [liQcity]

Bronx Bohemian is apparently on vacation. Come back BB! We miss your posts from up north!
