PULL that white 3-piece suit out from the back of the closet because Dancing With The Stars is coming to LIC on Friday, November 2. It will take place at the Plaxall Gallery between 6-9pm and feature local residents competing in a fundraiser for the Floating Hospital and the Queensboro Dance Festival. The glitz, glamour, and glory are sure to make this contest resemble Dirty Dancing and Footloose and not They Shoot Horses Don’t They. Tickets include open bar and a buffet by Woodbines & M. Wells and an open dance floor after the show.
//FALL is in the air and with it comes announcements of Halloween events. The Swillinger Team at Level Group is hosting a Halloween Block Party on October 31 between 5-8pm in Murray Park and on 45th Avenue adjacent. IN addition to the usual kids activities there will also be a dog-costume event. Need more Halloween? Roosevelt Island will be hosting their annual Parade and Extravaganza on October 27 between 11:30am and 3pm. Finally for the adults MoMA PS1 will be holding their 7th Annual Halloween Ball the night of October 27, which will be as debaucherous as “Dancing with the Stars” is not.
//WITH no local news of my own to break, I could rap existentially about topics du décennie like affordable housing or overcrowding1. Instead I will offer these solid stories/reviews from reputable publications, and unlike others I won’t regurgitate and expropriate them as my own.
