(Candy) Crack Delivery Service

candy_crack_delivery-525x343

One of the best things about NYC is that you can have everything and anything delivered… now including crack candy thanks to Candy Crack Delivery Service.  The crack candy (basically brightly colored rock candy) comes in 4 different flavors including blueberry, cotton candy, lime and original (sugar) and is delivered in 1 x 1 baggies for $1 a bag.  I’m not sure which is creepier, the concept or the dude who actually delivers it… a 7-foot tall man in white gloves, a tuxedo, and a plush blue fish head.

The service is the brainchild of Nate Hill (the self-proclaimed “greatest artist of all time”), the creative director of Club Animals. He and his cohorts specialize in other original projects such as “Free Bouncy Rides“- where a person in a fish costume hangs out on a subway platform and offers his/her leg to bounce upon, and the “Mini Marathon” where several people dressed as animals run four laps around Union Square.

Service Schedule:

  • Candy Crack Delivery Service – available on August 22nd, in the Greenpoint and Williamsburg areas of Brooklyn only
  • Free Bouncy Rides  – offered this Saturday, August 14th, from 10-11pm on the Union Square L train platform.

Good Cheap Fun

Jake Bronstein recently bought a toy vending machine off the Internet. He filled the toy capsules with ideas of fun things to do and started placing the machine in various spots around New York. For 50 cents you get the original toy, an idea, and a map to guide you to the location for your idea. Each capsule also contains a quarter, refunding half of your purchase price (the machine wouldn’t let him charge less than 50 cents.)  If you find it, please let me know where it is!

Normally, I don’t condone tucking your napkin into your collar unless of course you have the Dress for Dinner Napkins which turn any basic tee wearing man into a Dapper Dan.   Well… that is unless he starts drooling or spilling down the front of himself.

Double the Pleasure, Double the Fun

I will be frank… in general, I am not crazy about old people.  With the exception of my grandpa and the Brown’s.

San Francisco is known for a lot of things… but what most outsiders don’t realize is that the Famous San Francisco Twins are as much a city landmark as the cable cars and Golden Gate Bridge.

These sassy gals, Marian and Vivian Brown, can be spotted all around town in their fancy shmancy get-ups.  I wonder if this is what NYC has to look forward to with Mary-Kate and Ashley?!?

City Pet

I want a dog.  Even though I promised myself that for my 30th birthday I would be the proud mama to one — I am left with 2 weeks to go and no hope in site.  However, it seems I have options should I move back to NYC.  I present you with Plastic Bag Animals… aka City Pets!

There is a street artist who’s been making these animals out of discarded plastic bags.   The plastic bag animals are then tied to the ventilation grates above the subway lines so that when the subway rushes through underneath, the animal jumps up and springs to life.

Camera Face

If you are like me, you get “Camera Face” when you pose for a photo.  Either I get super toothy which spreads smile lines all up my checks like an old lady or I look at the camera straight on which makes my face look double-wide.  End result = not pretty. 

The solution to looking all sorts of fierce in photos is a MethodIzaz (aka personal stalker).

After giving details of your daily schedule, Brooklyn photographer Izaz Rony will secretly follow you around and capture candid moments of your daily life. You can even specify what emotions you want him to capture.

Pretty cool… unless he catches you picking something out of your teeth after lunch.
