Wholesale flower guys were prepping rose bouquets out in front of the old Panamanian storefront church at Franklin and Dean this morning, and the Avenue was all a-flutter with flowers as I walked to the train. Happy Valentine's Day to all (even if it's a Hallmark Holiday, it's nice to see flowers in February).
If you're looking for something to do tonight, punk band Big Ups is throwing a record release party with Flagland at Shea Stadium in East Williamsburg to celebrate their new split record. How is this Franklin-related? Well, they chose cover art from our little corner of Brooklyn to celebrate the fact that, as bands, they are "always friends." Awww.
