1010 WINS... today!

I taped an interview with John Montone yesterday, and apparently it's playing today! I have heardn't it, so I don't know if I come across like a moron. Let's hope not!

Here we are:

You can listen to the live broadcast online. Look for "listen live" on the right. It airs over and over through out the day- I wish I could tell you exactly when.

Update: I don't sound like a total fool! Yay!

Are YOU a SIGHTING?


Lots of you are going to be getting your t-shirts in the next few days. I hope that you'll submit pictures of yourselves for the blog! Smile pretty, like Tim does in this picture from Portland, Maine. If you don't want to smile, do something idiotic!


New Yorkers: be nice to Tim, despite the BoSox hat. He failed 3rd grade a few times.

Toosday's oopdate

Yesterday's sunny weather has turned to doody, but yesterday's gloomy blog post makes way for today's happy news.

WE LAUNCH THIS SATURDAY! That's June 13, darlings. Be in Prospect Park for Brooklyn Gay Pride, and come find up at the "Kids Space." That's inside the park, at about Prospect Park West and 15th. We'll be serving children, then welcoming everyone starting at about 1:oopm.

If you haven't been to Brooklyn Pride, you're missing out. It's more laid-back than the Manhattan celebration, and has a "local" feel to it. It's a grand time. I couldn't be happier to launch there. I'm really pleased that we are an official part of the celebration (instead of just wandering the perimeter) and that we are at the kid's part of pride.

I've got some great toppings lined up; I'm going to do a few rounds of taste-testing before I announce them. Don't forget, if you wear your BGICT swag I'll top ya for free!

Oh- and one last thing- my boss is in Ice Cream Court today! Let's hope she's not sent to Rikers!

Department of Consumer Affairs: Wonderland

I really appreciate all of you for getting "on board" with me on this. I didn't mean for it to "hit" quite as early as it did- I had planned a press release for this week, but word got out early. Keep checking by, and trust me- it will be worth the wait. Stick with me, peeps!

Can I get through to the folks at "SEVEN ON YOUR SIDE" or some other advocate group? Last week I was assured that my Mobile Food Vendor Permit was in the mail. I applied for the thing on April 27, and there is a 3-6 week wait until it shows up. Today makes 6 weeks, and it still hasn't shown up. I called this morning to ask about where it might be. Bear in mind I am just about the nicest dope EVER about this stuff. So polite, you think I'd get some help.

So, Miss DCA tells me that I the paperwork went through on May 27 and my license was issued. I mentioned that the 6 weeks are up, and she said "not since May 27, when your paperwork went through." But I applied for the thing on APRIL 27, numbnut!!

Anyhow, I'm still on track to "launch" this weekend. I'm just a little wigged out by the timing.
