Dear Taco Dude,
First of all, I’d like to let you know that I feel your pain. While you were weathering the blizzard in Baltimore, I was also snowed in and hungry in New York City. It sucks to have a “shItty little hybrid douchemobile” that won’t make it to your neighborhood Taco Bell when it’s “snowing like a bitch outside” (not to mention the “few drinks too many” you’d thrown back), but dude, put yourself in my snow boots! Not only did I not have a ride in last night’s storm, I don’t own a car and getting a taxi in NYC would have been like an act of God. My hungry ass had to huff it, through the snowdrifts and gusts of icy wind, to the local bodega for whatever scraps I could find. A sad turkey sandwich. No tacos for me. Keep reading »
With the pretty lights and copious booze, New Year’s Eve is the ideal setting for romance to bloom. Or, at least, to cop a drunken feel.
All you have to do is make sure you don’t piss all over yourself… Keep reading »
Forget Tarot readings, or visiting a psychic to find out what 2014 has in store for you. A man claiming to be able to “read” a woman’s breasts and gain insights into her “Happiness, Success and even Romance” is offering his services for free on New York’s Craigslist! He discovered this magical skill when he was with a half-naked woman and out-of-the-blue he said, “Did you know I can read your breasts?” “You can?” she responded. “ok — go ahead.” Keep reading »

When his wife gave him an ultimatum to choose between her or his 2006 Harley-Davidson XL1200L Sportster, Bob White of Virginia decided to put both of them up for sale on Craigslist! The listing price for the hog/wife package deal (both in “excellent condition,” Santa hat not included) is $5,900 OBO, but he will consider trades. You can check out an an excerpt from the ad featuring deets on both models after the jump. Oh, and you can call or text Bob to test drive the motorcycle, but not the wife, if you’re interested. GUH. Warning: prepare to be offended.

The stories that live in Craigslist’s Missed Connections board are often the stuff of movies. A user at Reddit found one of its greatest gems this week: a post written by a man looking for the girl he spent Thanksgiving with in 1973. Pass the tissues please!
Read it, after the jump: Keep reading »
A Minneapolis woman who is now pretty much my hero seems to have gotten fed up with the helpless feeling that comes along with being leered at on the street. She posted an open letter to the man who shouted nasty comments at her from his car on Craigslist Missed Connections, basically voicing the internal monologue of every begrudging catcall recipient there ever was.
The woman, who calls herself “the blonde you shouted at,” tells it like it is and explains just how damaging the dude’s actions are with statements like:
…Thanks to you I would spend the entire train ride home feeling scrutinized and gross because you didn’t have the willpower or maturity to keep your mouth shut; that your wife and daughters or at the very least your mother deserve better than a cowardly man who shouts at women from the safety of his car.

Waffle & Wolf is a waffle shack in Williamsburg, Brooklyn, that serves all manner of amazing waffles, both savory and sweet. Apparently, Waffle & Wolf is also where a reddish-haired man works that reminds this Craigslist poster of her deceased father. At first, the ad reads like a woman searching for a potentially long-lost family member — could the ginger waffle maker be her half-brother?! But no. She indicates that despite the resemblance, the chances of them being related are slim — but couldn’t they pretend for the sake of her incest-fantasy? Yes, this Craigslist post (which has since been deleted) quickly goes from sweet to sexual and also really kind of sad. Keep reading »
Lucca and I have been discussing a possible move to Brooklyn, but have been a little disappointed to discover that the rental market is not that much better than Manhattan. So when I saw this ad for a $800 room in a prime Williamsburg apartment, I was like, Hmm, maybe there are still deals to be had in Brooklyn! CLICK. Shoulda known. As is the case with the majority of real estate deals in this fair city of mine, this one has a catch. The apartment’s remaining roommate loves discussing the situation in Syria. Like, constantly. Weirdly enough, so does Lucca! Too bad this pad isn’t pet friendly. [Craigslist via Free Williamsburg]
