It’s been an action packed week with parties, shows, and a hot dog cook-off.

I went to Neal Medlyn’s Unpronounceable Symbol show at PS 122.  I may go again next week since Bridget Everett will be making a cameo.  The show was reviewed by the New York Times.

Thursday, I went to see Little Jackie perform at the Steve Madden store on Rivington. Their new album, The Stoop, is out now.

Friday, I chilled out with friends at Prospect Park to celebrate Brian Van’s birthday and listen to The Brazilian Girls.

Yesterday, I competed in the Third Annual Great Hot Dog Cookoff. My purple haze hot dogs are pretty and tasty.

Today, I found out that I am featured in an article about clothing swaps in New York Daily News. Yay!

Today was fun walking around lower Manhattan and East Village. First, there was a clothing swap at St. Margaret’s House.  Then, my friends and I dodged the rain by walking under the overpass by the East River. We saw the structure for the New York City Waterfalls, a new public art project that will be on display starting  June 26.

Later we went to The Delancey for rooftop BBQ, and later went to listen to experimental music from composer Barney McAll.
