Jamie and I were out at Coney Island to see the Fireworks on the Friday before the Friday before the Labor Day Weekend. As we sat eating hot dogs and fries at the boardwalk-adjacent tables by the Nathan’s that faces the beach, I noticed a Pink Panther earning some cash by posing for photos with tourists. Because a panther’s gotta make a living.

If you’re in the market for a new sweet ride, why not consider the first car named for its own hastagVolkswagen’s 2017 limited-edition #PinkBeetle? We had the opportunity to see the #PinkBeetle all up close and personal at a fun launch party earlier this week, and it looked like it was just made to be the Pink Thing of the Day, so here we go!

#PinkBeetle Front

Fresh Fuchsia Metallic is the color of this beauty’s vibrant pink-hued exterior.

A & G Merchandise is a fun home furnishings store that’s just across the street from Sea Thai restaurant in Williamsburg, and Geoffrey and I often use it as our meet-up destination when we are heading to Sea from different points of departure. Recently, I arrived a few minutes before G, so I had time to browse a bit and see what’s new.

Pink Poodle Book End

Check out this pair of Pink Poodle Book Ends! They look super retro and would be perfect as part of any Midcentury Modern decor! Made of heavy cast iron, one of these could easily serve as an impromptu bludgeoning device if you were being chased around your house by a mad man and didn’t have time to get to your kitchen knives.

The pair sells for $69 and you can buy them at This Link!

Pink Thing of The Day: Pink Corridor and Stairwell

Oh my, I do love a Pink Room. This corridor will take you to the staircase that leads to second floor location of Meet on Chrystie, a corporate meeting space whose décor could only have been done by an artist. It’s pretty groovy.

Pink Stairs Up

I loved how the aesthetics kick in before you even enter Meet, with its bright pink corridor and pink-painted stairs and railing.

Pink Stairs from Landing

The pink accents stop before you continue on to the third floor, so you know there was a bit of branding going in the decision to create these colorful flourishes.

Pink Stairs Down

It just makes you feel happy and welcome, as you bask in the glow of the pink.

I’ll be back.
