Thansk again to everyone who came out to last Saturday's Tear's in my Beer | Hurricane Sandy Relief Event at Lucky Seven's we raised $700 for the American Red Cross and donated a bunch of supplies to the JC Sandy Relief at Barrow Mansion. Donations and events to help with the recovery are contuning and building as the work that need to be done is quite massive.
Tonight Barcade is hosting a fundraiser for Sandy Recovery, the event is hosted by the Hudson County Habitat for Humanity The event runs from 6 pm to 9 pm with a suggested donation of $10. Baracde will also donate a portion of their proceeds from the event. On Thursday, Sustainable JC is hostiong their monthly Green Drinks and Art Party. As per their invite "in place of our new monthly tradition of a Green Swap-Meet, we will be COLLECTING non-perishable items, winter clothing, toiletries, etc. to be donated to the Jersey City Sandy Recovery operation, who has been doing amazing work since the storm hit to get supplies to those in need"
On Friday's The MiCK's host a SHOW FOR HOBOKEN at Maxwell's JC's They Live and Marvin Barry and the New Sounds play in support with Brooklyn's Ghost Pal crossing rivers to help. Meanwhile, The Everymen and the Brooklyn What and many more host a show at St. Vitus in Brooklyn If you didn't get a chance to see Ghost Pal at the Cemetery in September...On Saturday Night, Art House Productions hosts JC ReBuild, presented by Art House Productions, Instigatorzine, JC Slam, LaOla, and The Spaghetti Sessions.
I'll be still taking care of the Ladies this Thursday, but the Saturday tune in to Motorfunker Radio at Luckys.

If you haven't been to Pagan Thanksgiving, here's what you need to know. 1. It's at Just Jake's Montclair 2. We Cook the main courses (Turkey,Ham, Mashed, Stuffing, and Gravy) 3. You bring a side dish or a home made dessert. 4. International Wishbone Pulling Competition just before dessert. 5. If you don't have time to make something, please still come and don't give me that lame excuse, this event is a also a fundraiser for the Human Needs Food Pantry of Montclair, so you can relief your guilt with a donation.
