Hey NYC tumblpeepz! Is anyone looking for a couple sublet-ers for March?
the deetz: queer trans couple [artist+programmer], vegan, introvert, quiet. Lived in NYC but then moved to Philly for the past year. My partner starts their job on March 1st and we’ll probably be looking for our own place ASAP, but we’re trying to bridge the gap because we can’t pay the usual up-fronts for a place (we have enough $$ atm to sublet but not lease)
ETA: we’re looking for $800 or less! [pref in brooklyn]
We also don’t really care about your personal lifestyle [if your vegetarian, or not; if you like to party/host parties; if you’re not queer or trans but are an ally] because we’ll only live with you for a month!
email justthekid at gmail.com or send an ask???
[we’re also posting and emailing on craigslist and asking our other ppl’s ppl about this but yeeaaaah]
talking to CL ppl but only one reply so far!
If you’re looking for Grade-A cool people to move in with you, reach out to Adrian ASAP!

Drawing Party With Raina Telgemeier, Dave Roman & Laura Lee Gulledge!
What do you do when Raina Telgemeier, Dave Roman and Laura Lee Gulledge come a-calling? Well, if you’re at Bergen Street, you throw a party so BIG that it happens twice! That’s right: from 3-5 on Saturday March 1st, we’ll be having a kid’s drawing party. Then Raina, Dave and Laura Lee will take a break, before we start back up again at 7! At that point, this intrepid trio will settle down and have a talk about what it’s like making comics for kids, how they got into it, what sort of pencils they like, what IS the best kind of cupcake…and they’re aiming to stop in time so that you can ask them some questions as well. Snacks? Of course. Drinks? You got it. Three of the best cartoonists working today hanging out and being all around wonderful? Yep. Especially that.
(For those of you who might have been living on the Moon, welcome back! Raina Telgemeier is the cartoonist behind Smile, Drama, the Baby Sitters Club series and the upcoming Sisters, Mr. Dave Roman is responsible for the Astronaut Academy series and a metric ton of other titles, and Laura Lee Gulledge recently published Will & Whit, the powerful follow-up to 2011’s Page by Paige. And yes, there’s a Facebook page. Why, it’s right here!

Otherwise known as Mike, the guy you’ve seen every Wednesday and Saturday for oh, pretty much as long as there’s been a Bergen Street Comics, this coming Tuesday will see our man bringing the knowledge to the East Side, with his lecture “The Rebirth of the American Comic”. An “eyewitness report” on the creative resurgence of the American comic book and graphic novel beginning in the 1980’s and continuing to present day, Mike will describe his own journey through various corners of the field, including a look into the creative process behind his critically-acclaimed comics.
The event is $15 for Non-members and $7 for Students and Seniors and will take place at SOI, which is located at 128 East 63rd Street. You can read more about on the SOI website. Come on out!
