Who says 30+ year olds can’t attend Spring Break? Well you should know by now that LICtalk breaks all the rules. Thus I’m heading to Daytona this week ..or is it Cancun, or maybe Panama City? I don’t know, just one of those locations in Girls Gone Wild that I never got to attend when I was a little more age appropriate. These days though I’m better prepared for a vacation such as this, with an expense account and press pass hanging around my neck. Tres cool! Of course I’m also lugging an extra 30 pounds and need to wear a hat all day due to my thinning hair, but as they say in South Padre Island “No Problem Mon.” Alas, it also means I will be unable to update you all on the local comings and goings for a week, but nothing really happens in this town without me, right? Well before I go I’ll comment on two items. First, according to the Hunters Point South February update, the overall HPS park construction is 62% complete. Uhh ok. so when does that mean the park will be open? Secondly, as was made mention several times in the comments section of our December 5th post Dogs and Beer: numerous dog owners have not been picking up after their dogs. Apparently this is also a problem in the adjacent towns in Queens. So much so that Jimmy Van Bramer is kicking off a campaign in Sunnyside, and a vigilante in Astoria has taken matters into his own hands with a clever solution. Whatever the answer is, I expect it all to be cleared up when I return next week. Oh, and while we’re clearing the decks, let’s get all these snowstorms and cold weather outta here too!
