Burned out on this heatwave? Join the fucking party, pal. Trust me when I say it’s cooler down here, six feet under.
Last month the guys at BK Buttons released their first Brooklyn street sign pin, Greenpoint Avenue, and today they announced that anyone ordering a button can swing by the Pencil Factory Thursday evening to pick up their order:
For those of you working/living in Greenpoint, we will be hosting a “pin pick-up” at the Pencil Factory at 142 Franklin St at Greenpoint Ave, on Thursday (7/14) evening 6:30 – 8:30pm – please do swing by and pick up your order!
They’re still taking orders now through BKButtons.com but when we asked if we could pay cash for a pin tomorrow evening at the Pencil Factory pick up, they replied saying just “Maybe?”
Not a bad way to rep Greenpoint, I suppose! What’s next, a “West St.” pin?
