SECOND EDITION OF PLENTY: THE ULTIMATE GUIDE TO LIFE & LEISURE IN CLINTON HILL/FORT GREENE GOES GREEN FOR 2010 RELEASE

The second edition of PLENTY: The Ultimate Guide to Life & Leisure in Clinton Hill/Fort Greene (RedMEDIA), by Jelani Bandele, is scheduled for release in June 2010.

The community guide, featuring listings of brick & mortar and home-based businesses, houses of worship community organizations, restaurants, bars, web sites, Wi-Fi locations, elected officials, history, ongoing events and more, proved to be a valuable resource for area residents, employees and visitors when first published in 2003. In addition to listings, Plenty will also include neighborhood history and profiles. In keeping with the theme of green, Plenty will be printed on-demand.

Community residents, businesses, organizations, employees and visitors may join the Plenty Community on Facebook, subscribe to the Plenty blog and follow Plenty on Twitter. Mobile movers and shakers who wish to become fans on Facebook may text “fan PUGchfg” to FBOOK (32665) from their mobile phones, to be added as fans instantly.

While hanging out at the Myrtle collapse fundraiser today, someone pointed out this future spot to me.
Is this a bit much? Calls to mind the Obama Fried Chicken that the community in Flatbush protested. Curious to see how Clinton Hill will take this… Personally, I find the use of Obama’s likeness for purely commercial purposes opportunistic and unsettling.

The owner –who used to manage Chez Oskar– explained that all the meats are grass-fed and all other ingredients organic. I want to eventually try the Australian imported grass-fed lamb raised on fields of rosemary!
