How you can score free pizza AND rodent repellent tomorrow at the 1st Avenue L stop

Via the EVG inbox®…

WHAT: New Yorker's are used to seeing rodents in the subway but commuters may see a few that are too big to ignore on their commute to work tomorrow morning.

WHO: The event is being sponsored by earthkind®, a North Dakota-based pest prevention company and the makers of the award-winning Stay Away® Rodent repellent that’s proven to keep rodents out of indoor areas, safely and naturally.

WHERE: Giant mice will be greeting commuters at the E. 86th Street and W. 72nd Street subway stations before heading down to Pizza Rat’s home base at the First Avenue L station for an authentic NYC lunch of, you guessed it, pizza! Free samples of Stay Away Rodent® will be given to the first 5000 riders who greet the mice and give them a warm, NYC welcome!

WHEN: Thursday, November 12th from 7:30 am to 1:30 pm

WHY: The earthkind® mice are on a mission to teach New Yorkers how to keep “pizza rat” and other uninvited guests [ED NOTE: Family members?] out of NYC hi-rises, brownstones and homes without using poisons.

(Stuffed) Pizza Rats sighting on 1st Avenue

Here's a New York City Nature Scene from this afternoon on First Avenue between St. Mark's Place and East Seventh Street...

EVG correspondent Steven, who took these photos, didn't see anyone around to take credit for this installation...

However, the Pizza Rats are the work of Tina Trachtenburg, a.k.a. "Mother Pigeon," who creates soft sculpture pigeons and other urban vermin that she sells in city parks. She recently unveiled her Pizza Rat plushie in honor of the real-life Pizza Rat.

By now, perhaps, you've seen the viral video of the rat dragging a slice of pizza down the stairs to the L train platform at First Avenue and East 14th Street last night.

If not, then you can watch the video and read an interview with the man who shot it at DNAinfo here. (Matt Little was returning to Bushwick after working at Upright Citizens Brigade on Avenue A.)

Meanwhile, The New Yorker has an essay from the pizza rat — Paul, who has lived in the East Village his whole life. (Four months.)
