What’s Up Peekskill? Tattoos and bare butts!

Feeling naked when you’re nekid? Perhaps a tattoo can give you some peace of mind on Nude day. You’ll probably get naked to get that tattoo on your butt anyway! And Peekskill’s own Speakeasy Tattoo is just the place to do it!
bad butt tat (tattoo by Cavan Infante – link from Rattatattoo.com)

Thursday, July 14 – Happy Nude Day!

And perhaps appropriately, it’s also Pandemonium Day — It can get crazy with all those nekid people running around.

And to our French friends, who helped us during our own revolution, sorry about the Freedom Fries thing… Salut! Happy Bastille Day!

What’s Up Peekskill? Did someone say Gin Day?

Saturday is International Gin Day! Did you know that gin is actually quite healthy for you? (Like you needed an excuse to have that martini.) But it is! It helps with arthritis pain, cleans your liver and barrel-aged gin has tons of antioxidants. Now, I’m no doctor, but that sounds pretty good to me. And how do you think Humphrey Bogart dealt with Katherine Hepburn on the African Queen – what a nag!
