Do you like bicycles, art, and weird shit?  What a silly question, of course you do!  That said, you’re going to want to attend the silent auction benefit, "Bizarre! Weird Bikes! Weird Art!”  (plus, I think it’s common knowledge that anything with three exclamation points in the title is guaranteed to be awesome).  It all goes down tonight from 8-midnight @ Brooklyn Fireproof Bar (119 Ingram St.).    Not only ...

You’re on a U.S. postage stamp, your 1943 painting "Roots" set the record for the highest-selling portrait by a Latin-American artist, you’ve even had an Academy award nominated film made about you! With Salma Hayek no less! (The movie made me tear up darnit, Frida.) Now I know that I ... Read More
