Hey guess what, Bitches? Flying Tiger has reopened their Manhattan-based stores and I could not be more excited to shop there once again! I happened to be uptown yesterday near 74th Street and Third Avenue and stopped into the store at that location hoping to find a Pink Thing or two for blog. Mission: accomplished!

Kids love to play with Slime, and Flying Tiger is currently selling Pink Slime in a Pink Pig-shaped container. Squeal.

I believe the “cloud” graphic on the packaging is meant to indicate that the slime is soft to the touch, and not that it farts or emits gas of any kind when poked with a finger. I neglected to note the price of this fun pink thing, but my guess would be that it sells for around $3.00.

Do Unicorns ever go off trend? I don’t think so, and certainly not as long as the amazing Flying Tiger Shop has these Pink Unicorn String Lights in stock!

These lights would be a great addition to a little girl’s bedroom (or any child’s room), but they would also be fun to light up the room of an adult who just loves Unicorns, or the color Pink!

Just $8 for a string of ten lights, while they last!

Designing couple Charles and Ray Eames’s interest in design for children extended to many different kinds of playroom objects, including this hanging rack made from colorful wooden balls. The Hang-It-All Clothes Hanger (1953) remains in production to this day, and you can find an inexpensive version at any Flying Tiger Shop.

Restaurant Review: TBar Steak & Lounge

One of the best things about the expansion of uptown Q Train service is that it’s now so much easier for downtown foodies to escape their dining comfort zone and visit great restaurants on the upper east side, such as TBar Steak & Lounge! At TBar, you’ll encounter the same high quality steaks served at classic, old-school establishments like Morton’s or Bobby Van’s, but TBar’s sleek, contemporary decor elevates the atmosphere to something a bit more festive, while they also offer a broader menu. Despite the word Steak being prominently displayed in its name, TBar’s also serves expertly-prepared fish, chicken and duck dishes as well as burgers, pasta, and huge fresh salads, so there really is something on the menu for every palate.

You will feel welcome right away in the the well-lit, open space of the main dining area, though it can get a bit lively when the room is full. If you are looking for a quieter, more intimate dining experience, you can ask for seating in the back room, which has a cozy feel with its recessed, red lighting.

When I see something like this, a bag of assorted-sized Pink Pom Poms, I want to buy it just to own it, even if I have no practical use for said pop poms — because it’s not like I am person who does crafts, or anything like that.

Just look at them: so fluffy, pink, so beautiful to behold. It looks like you could string them together and make a necklace, though I do not think that a pom pom necklace is my style, Maybe I’m wrong,

Reasonably priced at just $2.00 per bag, at Flying Tiger Shops everywhere!
