Art works in Tabla Rasa's ongoing exhibits in the front of the gallery are more expensive, but after viewing those exhibits continue to the backroom (where art works are stored and packed for shipping and the gallery owners have their office) for an art sale in which all art works have prices no greater than $400.

Parking in Carroll Gardens

A friend of mine is driving in from out of town for a few days and looking for a parking garage around Carroll Gardens/Cobble Hill/Park Slope or even downtown Bk if there is anything cheaper there. Is there anything that you guys can suggest? Googling came up with a couple of places, but it's always better to have a personal suggestion :)

Art // Evil Genius

(no subject)

Hey guys!

So I'm helping out on a student film in an attempt to build a spaceship. Well, the interior of one.

Does anyone know where to get cheap/free scrap metal, tubes, pipes, wires, switches, lights, and general hardware? Any scrap metal yards willing to give some stuff up around? Any junkyards that would be good for searching? Any good places for cheap lighting (like LED strips and the like)? It's a student production, so the cheaper the better.

Thanks, guys (:

Brooklyn College-area hotels

Hi all. My Mom is coming for a visit at the end of the month and I'm trying to help her find a hotel. I'm living near Brooklyn College and she was hoping to stay somewhere closeby. I've googled, but the closest thing I came up with was the HoJo's on Utica, which doesn't strike me as a great place to stay.

Does anyone have any experience with any of the hotels in the area? A friend said he thought there were B&Bs nearby, but didn't have any specific info (he also suggested there were Kosher hotels in Borough Park, but Mom is arriving on a Saturday, so I'm thinking that won't work).

Ideas? Recommendations?

Kennels / Cat Sitters.

Hi guys. I won't bore you with all the details, but the long and the short is that I need to be out of my current (Bed-Stuy) apartment by October 1. I've put in an application for an apartment (Midwood), but I won't find out for sure if I have the place until Monday or Tuesday, and I want to prepare for the worst in the event that this place falls through (I've already had one apartment get sniped out from under me).

I have four cats. I have an offer of a couch for me, but the cats would have to go elsewhere.

Can folks recommend either a cat sitter who can house cats at their place, or else a good kennel? Ideally in Brooklyn, but I'm open to other boroughs, depending on the situation.

I'm also open to any other brilliant suggestions folks might have. :)

fish adoption!

So, I'm moving to Seattle at the end of the month and, unfortunately, I can't bring my four betta fish with me. :(

All of them come with tanks, decorations and aquarium thermometers, if you need them. (two are in a 2.5 gallon tank, one's in a 5 gallon, and one's in a 3 gallon clear bin)

Baby is a cellophane veiltail:


I also have Dancer (blue/purple, very pretty), Scuttle (orange dalmation) and Snacky (bright red). All male veiltails.

They're very dear to me and I am desperate to find them good homes before I move. If you'd rather email me, it's erinbardwell at gmail.com
