Happy Friday! Got big plans for the weekend? Cancel ‘em! You’re going to need a lot of time to shop Infinityshoes.com, where all Miz Mooz styles are 30% with the code SPRINGFLING.
Notice anything different about this blog? Of course you do! We’ve created a whole new look for this year, which is clean, easy to read, and just flat out adorable- if I do say so myself. Hope you think so too! Moving right along, let’s take a look at what else we’ve been up to. This weekend, various members of the Miz Mooz team will be performing the following grand feats of endurance:
So, if this video showed the laymen and not just the super stars, you’d probably find us loitering by the refreshment table, walking our bikes up hills, and wondering why the heck did we sign up for this torture!?! It was mostly about the spandex outfits.
For the second year, Miz Mooz will be represented in the Brooklyn Half Marathon! Of course, the best part will be after crossing the finish line in Coney Island, and enjoying a celebratory Nathan’s hot dog.
A mini food festival, heavy on entertainment, this requires another power of endurance. Namely, the ability to eat lots and lots of delicious food, while navigating looong lines and dodging hipsters. Also, it’s free! The tunes are going to be just as rockin as the food, we’re especially stoked to see The Flaming Lips and the Yeah Yeah Yeahs.
So, there you have it! Expect a full report (including pics of the spandex clad bikers) next week, and tell us what you’re up to these days!
First stop, Neon Museum! Neon is second only to glitter on my list of favorite kitsch, and this place is incredible. It’s more neon sign graveyard than museum in the traditional sense, with a collection of rescued signs dating as far back as the 1930s. Behold:
Then we went to a show, which was not technically off the Strip, (but still something brand new, and I make the rules here so it counts). LE REVE. Woah. Prancing showgirls this was not. I couldn’t find a good clip to embed, so you’ll have to look at these pictures and imagine the following: water, fire, flying, acrobats, swimmers, divers, dancers, and clowns.
For our last meal of the trip, we ventured to the legendary Lotus of Siam. Tucked away in a strip mall on a quiet (read: desolate and scary as all get out) stretch of road, this place has been lauded by those in the know as the Best. Thai. Ever. Needless to say, I was excited. The verdict: It was good, but certainly not the trancendent experience my tastebuds were ready for. A case of unreasonable expectations? Perhaps. I guess we’ll never know. Now, for the pics
So, another successful trip down, see you in August Vegas!
Oh, also, we sold some shoes
I haven’t made any New Year’s resolutions per se, but I do have a list of things that have been swirling around my brain for a while, and I want to get them out of my brain and into my real life (which reminds me of this song). They mostly involve attempting uncommon physical activities, performing crafty projects of all types, and eating weird things (did I mention I’m from Brooklyn?). Anyhoo, the first step is writing about them here for all of the interwebs to see, in order to invite public shaming should I not follow through.
Feats of Strength:
Trapeze! I mean, I already have some sparkly spandexy outfits, so why not?
Become a Wii Just Dance Master. Again, the sparkly spandexy outfits!
Master Crafter: I’m going to
Tie Dye. Everything.
