File Under: Yes, It Exists! I’m not one to worry much about counting calories, so I would likely never have even looked for something called Skinny Syrups, but this was a gift — and what a gift at that! The friend who gifted this pretty pink bottle of Jordan’s Birthday Cake-flavored Syrup to me knows that I adore anything that has to do with Birthday Cake (or the flavor thereof) and the fact that it is my favorite color is, as they say, the icing on the cake!
I have started sweetening my morning coffee with two teaspoons of this stuff and, man, is it ever scrumptious. And it has zero calories! Anyway, you can put this syrup on or in anything that you want to sweeten without adding any additional calories but instead adding the flavor of Birthday Cake. Win Win!
One thing that can be said about RuPaul is that (s)he always looks fabulous. While I am not a watcher of Drag Race, I appreciate the spirit of fierce competition and the flawless style aesthetic. Who could not love this amazing Pink Wig that Ru wears in the Subway Ad for the current season of the show? It is positively otherworldly.

When Winter Storm Gail hit the tri-state area in mid-December, people joked with me that the storm would surely bring with it some Pink Snow — because it shared my name, and everyone knows how much I love anything pink. Well, surprise (or not) — while exploring the neighborhood on the morning after the storm, I actually encountered Pink Snow!
The mysterious pink slush (which is what it had become by this point in the day) was found at the intersection of Avenue B and 9th Street, adjacent to a highly-trafficked bodega. I have no idea where the pink color came from, but I am glad I was lucky enough to document it before it melted and swirled down into the sewer and out to sea!
I originally took this photoof a giant paper mache (guessing) Pink Bunny Storage Ottoman (guessing again) at a NY Now gift show in August of 2019. I found it in my photo archives while digging around for a pink thing to post this week. How fortunate.
You can see it is rather big, so it would probably be a great addition to a child’s bedroom or playroom, as the back has a removable “lid” and I am sure you could store lots of toys and kid’s crap (or even linen) inside it. It’s pretty cute, definitely unique and also quite practical. Although I neglected to note the vendor, I did a search for “paper mache animal heads” and found this site, where I immediately recognized the Rainbow Striped Cow Head in the background. I have no idea if that is the correct vendor, but if you want to have a hand at doing some research Googling on your own, please leave any information in the comments.
If you’ve been paying attention at all, you know by now that the Pink Thing of The Day posts every Friday, with no exceptions. So why, you may wonder, am I posting Pink Things on a Thursday? Well, it is certainly because tomorrow is Christmas, and I have something even better than these assorted Pink Tabletop Christmas Tree Decorations waiting for you this Friday! You’ll see what I mean tomorrow!

For reasons that are a mystery to me, the southeast corner of First Avenue and 14th Street has become a dumping ground for assorted household garbage just recently. It’s beyond disgusting. Come on people; have a little pride in your city and refrain from dumping your garbage on the sidewalk. Every apartment building in the city has assigned bins for refuse disposal. You don’t need to strew your shit on the corner of a busy intersection. Losers.
As an example though of something that was probably abandoned on the spot, with little malice of forethought (though with a serious lack of personal responsibility), I recently noticed a discarded Play Stroller that was Pink enough to make make whip out my phone and document its sad demise. They could have at least tried to haul it to a trash bin.
I haven’t been inside a bar since March, or probably before that, but I pass the B-Side Bar, located at 204 Avenue B located between 12th and 13th Streets, many times each week on my walks. I always love to see this Pink Neon Sign glowing day or night, and I finally stopped to snap a pic, because it was way overdue to be featured as a Pink Thing.
I took the photo from two angles, trying to avoid as much street reflection as possible, although I do love the reflection of the sign itself against the glass! B-Side has curbside seating, if you feel like stopping by for a cocktail!
I did my research and it appears that somehow, although many pink trees have been in the mix, during the 17 years I’ve been writing this blog I have never posted a Christmas-themed story specifically entitled “Pink Christmas Tree/s.” I couldn’t believe it either. So, to everyone who was holding your breath for that post, here you go.
These festive Pink Christmas Trees were spotted decorating the entryway to NYC’s Museum of Ice Cream (located at 558 Broadway) as part of its Pinkmas (yes, I just typed that) celebration. The museum is currently running a promotion where buying one admission gets you a second admission for free, but this just applies to visits reserved for Thursday, otherwise tickets are $38 each. Reserve your tickets to visit the museum at This Link and use the code THURSDAYFUN to receive the buy-one-get-one offer. Remember that this BOGO offer applies to Thursdays only, and is good through December 31st. Hours are 12 Noon – 8:00 PM, Wednesday through Sunday. Pinkmas will be celebrated through February 28th, 2021.
An example of a ‘backhanded compliment’ if there ever was one, this felted wool artwork declaring “You Were Pretty Once,” in a lovely vibrant Pink color, was spotted by me last week while I was on a brief gallery crawl in Chelsea. It remind of something a (understandably) now-ex boyfriend once said to me along the lines of, “You looked really good last night. Of course, its been all downhill since then.” Needless to say (but you can see I am about to) we did not stay together long after that.
