By the way, the above photo was taken during the height of the streetscape work on Cortelyou Road. The back-hoe is gone now. I'll upload a more flattering view.

Hey, it's my favorite neighborhood leftist/communist/socialist coffee shop! Connecticut Muffin, Connecticut Shmuffin!

Hey, bonnie! I'm a frogma fan. Been watching your garden progress on your blog.

Hope you can make this event.

Thanks! Yep, the gardening has been an interesting experiment. I'm not as bad as I've made myself out to be, there are actually things (other than weeds) growing!

I can't make it 'cause I'm going to be learning to sail LITTLE boats that weekend - but I'll definitely keep an eye out here for other events.

btw if you or any Flatbush readers are an Irish music fan, there's gonna be some good tunes played at Vox Pop tonight (Wednesday)- my friends John & Arbo have been playing there. Don't know if I'm going to make it tonight but figured I'd put in a plug for 'em!

Great work getting this together AND those beer and food discounts. Looking forward to it!

Hey, glad to find your blog. My Carroll Gardens friend Lisanne just sent me the Blogfest link. I'm Joyce, I'm an avid blogger and Kensington gardener, where I'm on the gardening committee at my coop on East 8th Street. This weekend, we're planting flowers, some from seed. Sorry I can't come to Vox Pop--will be out of town--but keep me posted on other events!
