The Week In Links: Zines, UnFancy Food and RIP

NYC Zine Fest

What a crazy week was last week! First off, I want to send my condolences out to the families of Neda, Farrah Fawcett, Michael Jackson and Billy Mays.

Sunday, I went to the Unfancy Food Show at East River Bar in Williamsburg. It was so much good food. I ate pickles, beef jerky, ice cream and a shepherd’s pie-like beef pattie. UPDATE: I was quoted in the New York Times.

Saturday, I stopped by the NYC Zine Fest at the Brooklyn Lyceum and was amazed at all the cool zines. It was nice chatting with Ayun Halliday who is the founder of the zine East Village Inky.

Thursday, I drank jargaritas at Obliterati.

Wednesday, I listened to David Carr read from his memoir, The Night of The Gun.

Tuesday, I attended the Microsoft Preview party. The HTC Snap is the phone I would love to get and the “Inner Circle” button is cool.

Kelly Ripa, RKB and Me

Yesterday, I attended a fun Electrolux press event. Kelly Ripa, the Electrolux spokeswoman, introduced their Valentine’s Day promotion where you can send a virtual cupcake to your sweetheart and Electrolux will donate $1 to ovarian cancer research. There are also auctioning off a Red Hot washer/dryer on Ebay.

The bidding on the “Red Hot Red” kitchen – which includes a built-in range, dishwasher, refrigerator and microwave – starts Wednesday, February 11th at 3 p.m. EST and lasts until 3 p.m. EST on Wednesday, February 18th. All proceeds of the charity auction benefit the OCRF as part of Electrolux’s commitment to help this worthy cause.
