I'm Sorry Spanky I have to live my own life

This week's format is "Me First", followed by an daily listing.    (You can just scroll down or become my facebook friend if you want to know what events I will be "attending")
With Lucky Sevens closed for a Mercy shoot, The He-man woman haters club will be accepting temporary memberships from females for conditional entry to this evenings "Bros before Ho's" festivities at the Lamp Post.  Dawson, feel free to bring the rest of your friends down to our creek, 382 Second Street. DJ Leonard Smalls and I will unite for another danceable affair, real man Chuck Daly (JC Tattoo Co.) will be back next week.  On Saturday Night, Leonard Smalls and I separate, as I'll be spinning at the White Star's Vinyl Solution, which will follow, Jim Vande Wounde Shopping Cart Landscape. art opening at the White Star.

On Sunday, my stomach and I help raise money for the 2010 4th Street Arts Music Festival with our gastronomical Chili Cook Off.  Much like our Macaroni and Cheese benefit last year. Five dollars will give you an all you chili you can eat affair. Judges, Downtown Councilman Steven Fulop, and Star-Ledger’s Pete Genovese of the Star Ledger, and the Jersey City Museum’s Brendan Carroll will award one top prize while mob justice will award prizes to Jersey City's finest crock pots. The event is being held at the spacious Parlay Studios at 161 Second Street (or more notable- behind the behind of Shoprite)

Next Tuesday, a new Live Music Series begins at Bar Majestic.  New owner,  Dave Pomplin has reduced his wine prices and refocused the menu back to a Mediterranean flavor complimenting flavors and with the sounds of Fiesta Flamenca for this inaugural event.  On March 9th, Roland Ramos give you plays with members of his  Forbidden Fruit , Kilsy's  bosa nova lounge act, The Touristas, play on March 23rd. These shows start at around 8 pm with musicians playing two sets. Currently, I am booking these shows along with the summer's Groove on Grove festival, as well as shows at the Jersey City Museum and 58 events. Email me with your band links if you are interested. Our next show at 58 will be a special JC Fridays. performance by local indie|rockers the Wyldlife

I am also happily getting back into the sporting mode with the first Jersey City Dodgeball Scrimmage on March 6th.  Much like smoking, and alcohol, Dodgeball has been banned is many schools for exposing children to the sometimes cruel world that adults live in. For $80, Co-ed groups 6 will compete in this fundraiser to benefit the children of the Learning Community Charter School. There are prizes for the First and Last place teams with fun for all at out after party at Lucky Seven's.

Finally, the studio apartment next to mine ($950/month, heat and hot water included), along with several downtown spots I know off are available. Email if you are looking for something.
