City Life, According to a 6 yr old0

Well, my flip-camera-animation-obsessed 6 yr old. Kinda hectic!


Considering Pittsburgh? Here’s $100k!3

No, not from little ol’ Bklyn vs Burbs and Beyond, from the city of Pittsburg, itself! They’re holding a contest to attract new blood to the city, specifically of the older more disposable-income holding type (over 45, to be exact). You just have to tell them your dream! I’m not sure that $100k could cover our family’s moving expenses AND finance my dream, but I have some time to think about it since I’m a few years away from 45 (sigh).

I don’t know anything about the place, except that there are beautiful suburbs and it happens to be the setting for one of my all-time favorite movies, Wonder Boys. Rent it, at least.

This I love: “Upon seeing the article, Brooklyn promptly curled up into a ball and drank itself into a blind stupor with handcrafted Negronis”.

Wait, did M. Wells close?
