Pink Thing of The Day: Pink Barbie Shoe in the Subway

On New Year’s Eve Day, I posted this photo with the heading, “Someone Lost a Shoe in The Subway,” and it got about 100 likes overnight — more than most of my photos and certainly way more than the majority of my blog posts that I share on that page. So, I thought that maybe, if re-purposed as a Pink Thing, the photo could work its viral magic on my blog traffic! A girl can dream. Here’s the back story on this photo:

I was out that day with my friend Naomi and I spotted this shoe laying on the sidewalk at around 99th Street and Lexington Avenue, so I snatched it up. Because: Pink Barbie Shoe. When I got into the subway I “staged” it on a remote stairway used only by the subway crew, et voila!

The Ramones were so right on when they sang “Well, New York City Really Has It All,” because hungry, on-the-go Manhattanites can now purchase a freshly-baked cupcake at any time from an ATM right on the street! It simply does not get any more Space Age convenient than that. If you live in NYC, you might even remember when this made the local news.

Cupcake ATM and Storefront

The Cupcake ATM is attached to the front of Sprinkles Cupcake Store, and it is continuously restocked day and night with a variety of freshly baked cupcake flavors and even Cupcakes for your Dog! New York City!

Sprinkles Cupcake ATM is Located at 780 Lexington Avenue between 60th & 61st streets (Near Bloomingdale’s!) in NYC!

Brother Jimmy’s BBQ’s Murray Hill location proudly celebrates its 5 year anniversary this month. The popular southern BBQ restaurant and nightlife outpost has consistently served up quality cuisine, flowing cocktails and great memories as patrons continue to “Put Some South in Yo’ Mouth.” Now, in an effort to give back to the community that has allowed Brother Jimmy’s BBQ Murray Hill to thrive, the restaurant will host a Backyard BBQ Block Party on Tuesday, August 20th from 4:00 PM – 7:00 PM at its Lexington Avenue and 31st Street location.

Brother Jimmy’s Backyard BBQ Block Party will feature free concession stands to anyone passing by, with enough food to feed over 1,000 people. Brother Jimmy’s BBQ fans will be able to enjoy cotton candy and popcorn machines, along with many signature dining favorites such as Frickles, 500 Pulled Chicken Sliders, 150lbs of Rib Tips, Cole Slaw, Corn on the Cob and refreshing home brewed iced tea and lemonade. A BBQ Block Party would not be complete without a whole hog smoking right alongside the sidewalk.

“We are thrilled to reach this milestone in Murray Hill,” says CEO Josh Lebowitz. “Brother Jimmy’s BBQ Murray Hill has grown into a community of regular customers.
