Crazy Holidays, Crazy Tales, Crazy Crafts

Happy crazy New York City holidays!

So many things to see in our fair borough of Brooklyn, so much to get done, and so much to do! Most of the Icky holiday time is being spent hand-crafting and addressing creative pursuits. For more on that, and tons of great Brooklyn-based gift ideas, check out the post below. It's a compendium of handmade gift ideas, all crafted here in Brooklyn.

Adding to the crazy, "The Sad, Sad Saga of Icky and the Brooklyn Paper" continues on its path to near-operatic (or Beckett-like?) proportions. You might recall my Rather Opinionated Post concerning my poor opinion of The Brooklyn Paper. As the sordid tale wears on, it seems Editor Mr. K and AdMan Mr. Ross have decided to fight snark with snark - I am not only back on the hot-links mailing list, but I am now receiving "breaking news" updates, and emails from Mr. K himself. No matter, dear readers. The year is 2007, and the amazing Icky Spam Filter has been set to its task. God speed, Spam Filter.

In local Windsor Terrace news, a Blog-Who-Shall-Not-Be-Named seems to be posting on the exact same topics I have written on in the past, which is really irritating. C'est la vie. All in the family, I suppose. Grrrr. However, I am excited to add ... my neighbor Oppendonnell wrote to say that Dub Pies on Prospect Park West is open, and was handing out free samples today! (Mmmm. Pies.)

Otherwise, Happy December, New Yorkers! I'm looking forward to being back full time once the holidays wind down, and in the time being, please rely on these fine blogs for your Brooklyn news, trivia, candid photos, entertainment, and general good times -

did you see that Dub Pies is finally open? They were giving away free samples today. Yum.

Ahhh!

I didn't see it! Didn't go out all day. I want pies!!! I am SO over there tomorrow!

Dub-licious

You gotta love free pies. The space looked good but a bit cramped. Are they gonna get a liquor license? What's an Australian meat pie without a cold beer?

thanks for the update.
Ya think Farrel's would mind if we bring a pie in so we can wash it down a beer? Sounds like the perfect WT Sunday brunch.
Now THAT'S what I call a brunch!
The pies at Dub are pretty good... had one last night for dinner! Would've been better with a beer! :)
