grove on grove on or in through the outside

hey all blogger was down yestersday (Wednesday)  but Groove on Grove is on for today (yesterday)
Thanks to All of the team the participated in the Kickball Scrimmage last Saturday. We raised $400 for the Jersey City Boys and Girls Club. Now that you guy and gals got your feet (and other places) wet, we can move on to the next phase of athletic development, the Kickball Olympics,  Save Saturdays September 19th for the Qualifiers and October 17th for the Finals. If you were part part of the original 8 let me know cause I am holding a spot for you. We are going to take on an additional 4 teams. More to follow on this.... but let me offer
Congrats to the White Star Team for placing first in the scrimmage.  Their center fielder, who caught about every fly ball, Coop,  was awarded the MVP, a $100 certificate from the Jersey City Tattoo Company   and a $100 Gift Certificate to their namesake  Falling just short, and unfortunately having to play in consecutive games, team Easy Riders  were unable to beat this powerhome team.  Their efforts or outfits did not go unnoticed. With players like the The Puerto Rican Pickle and Team Capitains fashion flavor, they were clearly deserving the  Another Man's Treasure Gift Certificate  On the field, Enver, who scored 6 runs on one play was awarded a MVP hair cut from Balance Hair Salon along with a gift certificate for Carla's new business  Groovy Sex Toy Party     Team Easy Riders Cheerleaders also manged to steak away the pair of Nine Lives skate shop's I Love JC shirts for their drum rolling and enthusiasm.   The Runs, who hoped to take the Kunstballers ( 58 Team) for a ride,  and Kickin it Old School, who took a short cut out of the  comptition both got some hats and tees from Grove Street Bicycles .  Early Exiters, Zombie Apocolyse, who will hopefully return with the help of a Boomerangs Consignment Gift Certificate.  The Bad News Beers, who almost rumbled with the Kunstballers over some waterballon violations (please note that beers main ingredient is water) got some sweet 58 T-shirts. Thanks also to the Purple Cobras for playing.
Even thought it's raining now, things are supposed to clear and be cooler for the 6 pm Groove on Grove tonight. Brooklyn's Ben Franklin starts it off and the Poconos  will be under the tent. Afterwards tonight, The Hominid Party at the Stockinette is on this Wednesday, it's an open mike, BYOB affair. The Jack Parson's Moon Project plays tonight.   DJ's Lucha spins at the Lamp Post. He will also be joining me this Friday for the Creative Grove Art Market.  Birbal is at the Star Bar and Steff's got DJ (i dont know) at the Lamp Post.
