Show Your Vaccine Card at Krispy Kreme For Two Free Doughnuts, One Week Only!

Finally, someone is offering a perk to those who got vaccinated before it was being incentivized with cash payments. As the country continues to scale Covid-19 vaccinations, Krispy Kreme has found a way to show support for those who are protecting themselves and others by getting vaccinated. For me, staying healthy was incentive enough, but it’s nice to be acknowledged for doing the right thing .  Here’s the deal:

For one week only, 8/30 – 9/5/21, anyone who shows their Covid-19 Vaccination Record Card at any US-based Krispy Kreme location will receive two free doughnuts: an Original Glazed doughnut and an Original Glazed Heart-shaped doughnut. If you are feeling generous, you might offer your heart-shaped doughnut  to a friend, though I am pretty sure I would eat both doughnuts myself. Because free donuts.

Public Service Announcement: Please Get Vaccinated

I made my first appointment to get the Covid vaccine on the exact day that NY State opened eligibility for my age group, and was fully vaccinated by April. Being vaccinated allowed me to safely fly across the country to meet up with my sister (who is also vaccinated) for a mind-blowingly fun road trip across the state of Utah, which I will remember for the rest of my life. My time in Utah more than made up for hardly being able to leave my house of the better part a year. I feel that I owe not just my physical health, but the triumphant return of my mental health to the Covid vaccine. Thank god for medical science!

If you’ve already been fully vaccinated, thank you, and please congratulate yourself on doing your part to keep yourself and others safe as we attempt to beat this fucking virus, which as we can see is not backing down so easily.

Just in time for summer, NYC is opening up to in-person cultural events and experiences a bit more each day. Even art fairs such as Frieze and the Affordable Art Fair have successfully returned, which is great news for art fans! I’ve written previously about the very fun New York Gallery Tours, where local art historian Rafael Risemberg offers small group tours in NYC’s popular Chelsea gallery district, and I’m happy to announce that those tours will expand in size as galleries increase the number of visitors allowed inside their spaces at one time. But for those who aren’t able to get out just yet, and to accommodate folks located outside of  NYC who still crave an interactive art experience, Rafael offers his virtual Digital Arts tours, which are streamed live via Zoom. Best of all: there are no Covid restrictions!

Thanks to the successful rollout of the Covid-19 vaccine, we can finally start to think about the possibility of traveling during the pandemic. But while the numbers may be down, we still have to  remain cautious and take the basic steps (masking up, washing hands frequently, and keeping socially distant) to ensure our health and safety while on vacation. With that in mind, one item you will want to toss into your carry-on is a travel-size bottle of Disinfect & Shield 24 Hour Face Mask/Fabric Sanitizer.

Unlike traditional disinfectants on the market, Disinfect & Shield is non-toxic and completely safe for use around humans, animals, and plants. Disinfect & Shield has been tested to destroy viruses, bacteria, molds, and fungi, including strains of SARS, H1N1, E. Coli, EBOLA and harmful microbes including COVID-19 on contact.

Product Review: Jasmine Seven Yoga and Body Wipes

The Covid life has familiarized many of us not only with the concept of Working From Home, but also Working Out From Home. Personally, I am doing two or three Zoom workouts each week, which helps to fill up the time I used to spend leaving the house to socialize with other humans. Another thing we can claim a heightened familiarity with (compared to one year ago): Wipes. Did you ever imagine that you would spend such a large percentage of your waking hours wiping things? I sure didn’t. And yet here we are; all about the wipes.

Street Art That Has Dicks In It

Spot The Dick (All Photos By Gail)

While looking through my archives of street art photography, I noticed a few random photos that have dicks in them. This seemed funny to me, and I was ‘hard up’ (pun intended) for an idea, so I decided to make a post out of street art with dicks in it. I’ll add more pics of dicks to the post as time goes on. Because why not? There are more dicks out there waiting to be discovered; of this I am quite sure. I do not know the artist responsible for the banana-as-dick fetish-themed piece above (it might even be an ad), but when you’re feelin’ it, who gives a shit?

I saw this fun piece in SoHo last summer, when Covid was still kind of a new thing and the George Floyd murder was making people (rightfully) lose their minds. Is it any wonder that such a volatile social climate spawned this bold message of  “Racist(s) Can Suck My Dino Dick” emblazoned above a masked woman riding a, well, Blue Dinosaur-Dick-hybird? I think not.

Let’s zoom in for a closer look:

Ride ’em Cowgirl!

This piece is by Pure.Genius, whose murals are always topical, and lots of fun. And speaking of fun, please take a closer look at the outfit on the ‘rider’ and tell me you don’t think this lady is modeled after Walt Disney’s Snow White. Because of course she is.

Update: The artist has since told me that yes, it is Snow White, and she is “Using her White Privilege to fight racism!”

I call this one Mr. Potato Dick. If you know who the artist is, please leave it in the comments!

More Dick Pics coming as soon as possible!

Additional Dicks below, as promised. This one was spotted on 14th Street and 3rd Avenue on May 1st, 2021!
