Talk about urban farmsteads–I was walking down Lafayette Ave. behind a man and his toddler daughter when I heard the little girl exclaim, excitedly, “Chickens!” And sure enough, there is a coop full of clucking hens in a corner of the Hattie Carthen Community Garden. I’m hoping this means there will be fresh eggs for sale at the Farmers Market this summer. I haven’t heard anything about a rooster crowing and waking up the neighbors, though (an experience not-so-fondly remembered from my childhood). But given the noise level in the neighborhood at times, maybe a rooster crowing wouldn’t be all that noticeable.
I spotted these flyers for a benefit party at Amarachi Lounge on Franklin Ave. in the window of the Latin deli on Nostrand (a few doors north of Dunkin Donuts). It reminded me of The Changeling & Inquisigal’s review of Amarachi last year, where I suggested in the comments that it was the perfect place to host parties. And now look! Not even a year later. (Yeah, I know, this has nothing to do with me).
Here’s the event info:
