(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.

I LOVE NEW YORK CITY!!!

So last night was the first time I have ever attended a book signing.  Who, might you ask, was thrilling enough to pull me out to the Virgin Megastore in Union Square at 7pm? 

Tori Spelling

I really just wanted to see her up-close… not actually meet her… and I could care less about her signature… but since I did genuinely want to read her book (don’t judge me but my guilty pleasures have also included Victoria Beckham‘s That Extra Half an Inch) it made sense… sorta!?!

My lack of fashion flare was glaring as I stood in line with some of SF’s best “Queens” but it was well worth the effort as it may have possibly been the best people watching of the last decade.  Important highlights include:

  1. Tori Spelling telling her semi-famous tranny impersonator, Suppositori Spelling, to “break a leg” 
  2. A pan handler telling all of us, “I don’t even want to meet Tori any more after meeting her fans” (because nobody was giving him money)
  3. Some of the majorly cracked-out middle aged creeps who were actually SCALPING photos from her 90210 glory days while they discussed William Shatner’s upcoming book signing… Tori’s fans are trekkies!!!

I have to remind myself that I will never get those two hours of my life back… and I am happy to report that it is fine by me!
