“You a bad girl and your friends bad too
You got the swag sauce, you drippin Swagu.” - Kanye West, feat. on “Mardi Gras” - Drake
That’s exactly how we’re feeling after our @FRIENDSNYC’s Pop-up Pizza Party last Thursday. If you missed out on the fun, let us recap for you real quick:
Tons of peeps came out and held it down on August 23 at FRIENDSNYC 56 Bogart St. location from 6-9 p.m. Ya homies here at FRIENDSNYC sought out the tastiest pizza parlor - HEY, @archiespizza, our delicious neighborhood New England Greek-style pizza joint - who demoed FREE, delicious shizz All. Night. Long… JK, we kicked everyone out at 9 p.m. Sorry not sorry!
FRIENDSNYC co-owners Emma Kadar-Penner and Mary Meyer label these special events as “Natty Thursdays,” a nod at our favorite “nat”-ural wine distributor, MFW Wine Co. These monthly neighborhood hang outs provide shoppers (that means you!) with a free boozy element + a discount deal. August was the month of free wine and pizza, plus an insanely good discount on vintage tops, bottoms, dresses and shoes. As music blasted and energy lifted, we understand why visitors and locals alike perused our racks both in and outside, looking for eclectic and authentic pieces to wear. And after all that Mercury Retrograde madness, a good time was definitely deserved!
Missed out on our latest event? Don’t worry, we hate FOMO more than you do. Trust. FRIENDSNYC will be having their next pop-up Thursday, Sept. 20, from 6-9 p.m., featuring illustrations from visual artist, Meagan Morrison. You can find more of her work on Instagram @travelwritedraw.
Sh*t is (also) gettin’ spooky. Very, very scary, like sh*t you see in the movies. Yes, we love Drake, but even more so - we love flash tattoos - and they are BACK in October! Be sure to keep in the know for our next events by following @FRIENDSNYC on Instagram. “Last time was nuts. I’m sure this one will be too,” Kadar-Penner said.
Come make FRIENDS with us in person every day at 56 Bogart St, Ground Floor in Brooklyn, NY, from 11 a.m. - 8:30 p.m., for all that indie department goodness. We’re also available 24/7 online at https://friendsnyc.com/ - because that’s what friends are for, right?
