More tomato-ey than limey, lots of hot red pepper, hints of ginger. New colorfully zen decor too. I’m hooked!

-Rustik outside.in
-Bonita outside.in
-Chez Oscar
-Alibi

WHAT: A bloody mary contest with a winner determined via a blind popular vote. Mixes are labeled A-F. The voting populace purchases a “Flight” of Bloodies, voting on their favorite mix without knowing the bloody identity. Each constituent turns in their ballot for a discount on the first order of their favorite mix. We calculate votes and number of each bloody sold to determine the winner. We announce the winner and which mix is whose after voting ends. It will also be posted afterwards for those who have to leave before voting ends. In case of a tie there is a special judges panel.

WHY: An ongoing battle to find the best bloody in Brooklyn! (aka The World!!) The Brooklyn Battle will culminate with all winners from each neighborhood competing for the Brooklyn Bloody Crown. Then it’s on to Manhattan… with a brief stop in Costa Rica.

People dancing to ethereal sounds, handmade natural fiber clothing, Mom’s and Pop’s cosmetics line. (All pictured below.)
Otherwise, loads and loads of jewelry. A couple of t-shirt makers.
I think this has a little more flair than Dance Africa but I can’t put my finger on why.

This party’s non-jeans wearing crowd brings the FiveSpot’s potential to life every 4th Saturday of the month. If you’re nostalgic of the days when people dressed up to go dancing in coordinated pairs, you’ll probably enjoy it. I attended the very first one two months ago. Resident DJ’s Mr Robinson and DJ Honky spin rare northern soul in between live performances by 60s singers. This Saturday Young Jessie from the Coasters is expected. Tickets are $7 on presale at myspace.com/digdeepernyc or $10 at the door.

On June 14, our neighbor Max Power organized a Bloody Mary contest at Rope. Participating Myrtle Avenue establishments were: Maggie Brown, Chez Lola, Pillow Cafe and Luz.

I missed it and I’m sure many of you did. Apparently Maggie Brown’s Bloody Mary prevailed, beating the runner up by a few votes.

On September 13, Max Power strikes again with a Bloody Battle at Pillow, the cafe at 505 Myrtle. This time, Dekalb Avenue bloody maries come to Myrtle. Participating contestants include Rustik and the Alibi. A more complete list is a-coming. Save the date.

Since Afro-Punk’s Urban Arts Market is coming back to Myrtle and Ryerson this Sunday, I thought I’d share these previously unreleased shots of the Afro-Punk Block Party from a couple of weeks ago.
