Hi, do you ever like, wake up at 3am all the time in total existential crisis mode? COOL, ME NEITHER! (JK, I totally do.) This has been a fun way of telling you that I have been awake for a very long time, making this an ultra-sleep-deprived week since I got locked out of my apartment on Monday night and had to sleep on a very small sofa at a friend’s! (Her dog licked my face! That was my alarm clock!) All of the delirium for me, thanks! Anyway, I am going to keep this intro bit short since I am clearly borderline incapable of forming sentences. (It’s still too early to go to Starbucks, UGH.) But basically, while I catch up on sleep this weekend, YOU can do tons of great stuff – it’s closing weekend of the BK Comedy Festival, plus it’s the NY Art Book Fair, there are pumpkin spice goth dance parties, queer fetish dance parties, emo dance parties…SO MANY DANCE PARTIES…there’s a Bill Murray birthday celebration (our GIF theme) and MORE! BUT FIRST, here’s some rad #CONTENT you might’ve missed on BYT this week:
