Undead Jazz Festival at CFSBK

This Saturday, June 25th from 8pm-3am CFSBK will be one of the hosts for the 2011 Undead Jazz Festival. Founded in June 2010 the Undead Jazzfest is new kind of festival, bringing together an incredible array of artists from the new jazz and improvised music community currently exploding in New York City.  With no headliners, affordable tickets, unorthodox venues and no drink minimums, the Undead Jazzfest aims to shake the public perception of what jazz can be today, celebrating the incredible music being made in a setting that is inviting to both the veterans and curious new fans.

CFSBK's New Website
In one week, CFSBK will be launching a new website.  We're leaving Typepad and migrating this blog to Squarespace.  The new website will offer more features for members, a much cleaner design and easier navigation.  The www.CrossFitSouthBrooklyn.com URL will stay the same but if you use the typepad URL you'll have to update it to continue to follow the blog.  All the previous posts and comments will still be available on the new site so don't worry about losing any workout notes.  This site has been good to us and we'll miss the old blue and gold design, but greener pastures await...

If you were given $100k that you couldn't spend on yourself, what would you do with it?
