Punk Rope Games IX a Huge Success
More news and pics to come, but here’s the quick and dirty recap:
8 teams competed valiantly for the Punk Rope trophy with Muted Mutton (Joe Katz, Claire Francois, Rich Mudge, and Shawnette Proper) claiming the team title. There were some great costumes, some fantastic individual performances, prizes galore, and lots of laughs. We wouldn’t have it any other way! Next year will be the 10th anniversary of the Games. Who’s in?
Join Shana tomorrow (Monday 9/25) at 7pm
for the final Punk Rope class at Solar One
We had a good run at Solar One, but tomorrow’s Oktoberfest-themed class will be the grand finale this season. Join Shana at 7pm at the East River and 22nd Street. Suggested donation is $15. The next Monday Punk Rope class will take place on 10/30 at the 14th St Y followed by a happy hour at Otto’s Shrunken Head (538 E. 14th St). Naturally the theme will be Halloween and it will also be my homecoming as I’m moving back to NYC on 10/28. Yay! We’re looking hard for a new location for a Manhattan class so please drop us a note if you have a suggestion. We’re also looking to restart Moshfit at Otto’s.
Punk Rope is good enough on its own, but toss in Heather’s homemade pretzels and a killer Oktoberfest playlist and you just can’t beat it. I consider myself a pretzel expert and although I’m slightly biased, Heather’s pretzels—made the old-fashioned way—are second to none. And rumor has it there will be a happy hour at the Diamond Bar after class. Punk Rope Greenpoint takes place every Wed night at 7:30pm at the Greenpoint Y (99 Meserole Ave). First 3 class free for new students. Always free for members of the Greenpoint Y.
