Sunday, Sept 20, 2009, 12 pm to 7 pm — Brooklyn Urban Arts Market — That’s Where You’ll Find Me

From the Myrtle Minute:


Party and shop locally through out September! The Brooklyn Urban Arts Market returns to Clinton Hill on all four Sundays this September, taking place on Myrtle Avenue between Emerson and Grand near the PrattStore. This is Brooklyn’s answer to those commonplace street fairs that take place in Manhattan – this open-air market will house 50 local artisans, vendors, and entrepreneurs hand-selected for their innovative creations, fresh urban perspective and DIY spirit.

The music is back too, and we’re happy to report that local favorites Soul Summit will spin the closing set at every event! We’re bringing back live music too, with a special treat for the kids – each event will kick off with a youth band, including the School of Rock All Stars!

We’ve added a new dimension to this year’s event – we’re actually closing 7 blocks on Myrtle Avenue from Emerson to Clinton as part of DOT’s Weekend Walks Initiative. Move About Myrtle will take place at the same time as BUAM, and will transform the Clinton Hill portion of Myrtle into an active, pedestrian-friendly public space perfect for walking, cycling, dancing, and people-watching.

As if Move About Myrtle isn’t enough, you can be sure that we’ll be working to help our existing merchants take advantage of this flurry of foot traffic – we’ve got a number of plans in the works to get our visitors to travel the avenue, including the distribution of our new shopping guide and a sort of Myrtle Avenue shopping scavenger hunt (more on that soon).

Check back in early August at the Myrtle Minute or at our partner’s website, for the more info and the latest updates. Major funding for the Brooklyn Urban Arts Market was generously provided by Deutsche Bank Foundation.


Sounds like fun so come join me. I’ll have back to school goodies and some early holiday offerings.

Sometimes he gets on my nerves…

It’s Sunday. I have two papers due by midnight tonight and a group project due tomorrow. My aunt and my mother kept me out till 11 p.m. yesterday so I got absolutely nothing done. I finished my first pass at the final draft of the group project at 11 a.m. this morning. Just finished one of my papers for Org Behavior and about to start on the second. I’ve only had crackers and cheese and a Pepsi all day. I’m tired and cranky.

The man just called to check on me and I told him all my troubles. How the old biddies (my nickname for my aunt and mom) kept me out all day going to B.J.’s, Shop-Rite, the mall, and various other places while I kept saying I have papers to write, I HAVE PAPERS TO WRITE!!!!

Of course being the sweet caring understanding beau that he is…

He proceeded to LECTURE ME about waiting till the last minute to do all my assignments. Then he politely told me to get off the phone and get to work. He would call me later.

Where was the sympathy for my plight?!!!!

Damn, I hate when he’s right. Let me get off my blog before he checks and finds out I’m goofing off again. I guess I will tell y’all about the two new bags and new earrings I bought at the mall yesterday, later.
