Mulchemian Rhapsody: Chipping underway in Tompkins Square Park!



Let the mulching commence!

Here are some photos via Steven as the two-day Chip-a-thon gets underway in Tompkins Square Park...






[Go Seahawks next season!]



And, despite the promise of a Mulch-themed brunch — bacon, egg & pine sandwiches, chocolate wood chip pancakes and unlimited Mulchmosas — the crowds have not yet arrived for the festivities, which last until 2 p.m. today...



... and again tomorrow from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.

And there are freebies. Per the Parks Department website: "We'll chip your tree and give you your very own bag of mulch to use in your backyard or to make a winter bed for a street tree."

(Please note that the workers WILL NOT mulch old documents that you need shredded.)

Got mine mulched. Feels good man. I don't feel so bad anymore about consuming a christmas tree. It's grown as a crop, not really different from a lettuce or a broccoli--plants which we mercilessly cut down and friggin devour with our teeth on a daily basis without the slightest bit of remorse or even second thought.

By the time we got to mulchfest
Most of the trees were gone
And everywhere there were bums and dudes on cellphones ...

Dogs were pissing all over that pile haha. The Empire State Building was lit up green tonight. In honor of Mulch Fest I assume!
