This is a great opportunity to sample some new restaurants, especially if you support one of the small businesses hit so hard by Hurricane Sandy in October 2012.

bluecar_clipartIt’s not easy finding a free parking space in New York City.   They are rare, coveted things, especially the ones where you can stay parked for a couple of days or more without risking a parking ticket or getting towed.  The New York Times estimates nearly half of all traffic in residential neighborhoods such as Park Slope is drivers looking for a parking space.  To the rescue are two new bits of technology.

StreetParkNYC connects drivers leaving a space together with drivers who want one.  Drivers are charged a $5 to find out about the available space, which is shared by the ‘seller’ and StreetParkNYC.  It’s cheaper than paying for a garage, and — so far — it is not illegal.

It’s called Karaoke Killed the Cat 2011, and it’s happening at Union Hall, the combo restaurant, bar, bocce court and live music venue in Park Slope.  New Year’s festivities begin with a New Year’s Eve karaoke dance party with a $15 entry fee, but the ‘morning after’ party is FREE.  Except that it starts at 11 p.m., which could be considered morning for those of you who were out really late welcoming in 2011.  And after all, this year New Year’s Day night is on a Saturday night.  Union Hall is at 702 Union Street, at Fifth Avenue, in Park Slope.

Take me out to the ball game — circa 1864.  Cheer the New York Gothams as they take on the Flemington Neshanook, using vintage play rules.  This is a special event at the Old Stone House in Park Slope, which served as the original clubhouse of the beloved Brooklyn Dodgers baseball team.  The game is 11 a.m. Saturday, part of a five-borough festival celebrating New York City’s historic buildings.  Find the full weekend schedule here. Take the kids.  Except for a special evening tour of Gracie Mansion in Manhattan, all the weekend events are free.
