Curious about the Meat CSA? Herondale Meatfest on Wednesday!
If you’ve been considering joining the meat CSA program, come to the gym Wednesday evening (11/5) between 5-8pm to meet farmer Jerry Peele and sample his delicious wares.
He’ll be selling packages of his famous bacon and ground beef (at a discount), running a raffle for a 15-lb meat share (tickets are just $10), handing out shares to members, and signing up new ones on the spot. Questions? Email mignyc [at] gmail.com.
CFSBK Art Show: Seeking Graffiti Artist/s!
CFSBK’s first Art Show is less than three weeks away, on November 22, from 7:30-10:30pm. Save the date, it’s going to be completely awesome (and free alcohol, so, you know). All our artists and visiting feature artists are listed here (plus Alona K.!).
We are looking for one or two graffiti artists or people who are good at drawing on a large scale (especially letters) to help create decorations for the show that afternoon (between 2pm-6pm). If you’re interested in playing with lots of markers (not paint) and making some cool, temporary art in the gym, shoot Kate an email at Katharine [at] CrossFitSouthBrooklyn.com.
(One of the signs can created ahead of time, so if that time doesn’t work and you’re talented, still send an email.)
