2 Fun Events This Weekend
Sat 8/28 - Black Laffs, 8 pm
Sun 8/29 - Sister Street Fair, 12-4 pm

Over at this new joint around the corner from me, they have a smallish back room where all comedy seems to take place (back rooms, basements, etc). Slipper Room has also taken up residency there while under construction. White Slab Palace is a new, trendy and beautiful bar and restaurant run by the people who brought you the Lower East Side's Good World (RIP). That was my fave bar in the hood until it closed not so very long ago.

But whatevs! They have a new hang now and I love this place. It's - did I already say beautiful? Well, it is. On Sat, 28, we'll be taking over that back room to bring you BLACK LAFFS, a show full of dark sensical and nonsensical musings, sketches between acts and then after, I hear a DJ will be playing some jams. Enjoy the likes of Jena Friedman, Sara Schaefer, Shaina Feinberg, Ben Lerman, Mike Amato, Soce The Elemental Wizard, Daniel Michael and perhaps one or two more. But the show will not go long. Most of the boys are just in the short sketches.

NOTE: It says SW corner on the flyer, but it's the SE corner, that's south EAST, across from Starbucks. I can be directionally impaired sometimes. Can't we all?


And on Sunday, Aug 29, Sister Street Fair sets up shop on the closed off street area between Division and Canal. That is, myself and a few friends present our wares in a street sale format. Clothing, vintage and new, books, electronics, knick knacks and more, maybe even some home made snacks, yours to peruse and buy for next to nothing. That's right, one of "NYC's 50 Most Stylish New Yorkers" is cleaning out her closet with some great end of Summer, Fall and Winter finds for ya. With the way cool Hester Street Fair literally just around the corner, knock two out in one swoop. I usually have my guitar or uke out like a hippie and am playing on the street. We make a little scene. It's fun. Come take a peek see.
