A NIGHT OF HOPE Wine Tasting to benefit the Queens American Cancer Society
(ACS) happened last week, on June 17, 2010 at The CityView Racquet Club
Penthouse, on an unassuming block on 32nd Place (between Skillman Ave. &
Queens Blvd.) right here in Long Island City. It was a HUGE success. Huge.
The 2nd time around proved that this is an event that is great for Queens
and can grow to be bigger each year! 205 guests attended, drank red and
white wine, ate deliciousness from FreshDirect, bought raffle tickets and
raised about $29,000. This is a 101% increase over last year's
event and there is so much room to grow! I know I had fun.

Professor Dabby graced LIC with his presence at The Creek and The Cave
Last night Professor Dabby graced LIC with his presence at The Creek and The Cave. A local celebrity on Queens TV, Time Warner Cable channel 35, Dabby
came by, talked with owner Rebecca Trent, posed for the paparazzi and laughed at the comedy show, Savage Animal.
Savage Animal is a free comedy/variety show written and hosted by Pete Isip, Anthony DeVito and Greg Stone; the show features New York's best and
brightest comics, improvisers and various other performers from all walks of life. Unlike most stand up or improv shows the audience is the main
ingredient; often audience members will find themselves deeply involved in the act itself, at the very least always walking away with fistfuls of free
gifts and stomachs full of won alcohol. Each show is based on a suggestion given from the previous show. So, if you write an idea for the next show
there's a chance you can see it come to life.
Here are a few videos on YouTube, catch a laugh! (COMING)
You may have heard of the Blue Dog, but what about a pink poodle or a blue mohawked mutt?
canine companion Molly (a Maltipoo), her mom, and I, checked out the
Dognique Spring Dog Festival this weekend. A new trend we are noticing in
doggie outings- hair dye.
For the more eccentric pet owners, dog hair dye has become a hot trend in
pet grooming that continues to grow in popularity. People really dye their
dog's hair. Crazy colors too - pink, blue, orange, purple, whatever.
"Whatever the trends are with humans, they are crossing over to pets," says
Tierra Griffiths, APPMA spokeswoman.
Pet owners are taking their beloved dogs to grooming parlors where they are
not just given a shampoo and cut -- but a full-on, multi-colored fur job. If
you are going down this route, you made need the help of the Trimline
Collar. Watch the video featuring an experienced groomer in action:
Dyeing your dog's hair is a trendy new way to get your pet noticed! Be
creative any day or touch up small spots on brown or black coats. But, you
have to remember that you can't use people hair dye on your dog. Dogs are
not build the same way people are. I mean, they can't even use our shampoo,
so there's no reason to you human hair dye on them. However, if you choose
to dye your dog's hair, use cool- aid, food coloring, diluted with water
(it's easily washed off and does not irritate the skin), or find a pet- safe
hair dye and get creative!
Plus, fun free tip of the week! Bring in a reusable tumbler and Starbucks
will reward you with a free cup of coffee on April 15, 2010. Learn more
