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]

When I was 23, I moved to Seattle from New York City, for no particular reason except that I felt compelled to. When I got there, I was coming down from a pretty irreverent sex life in the Big Apple. I’d just had my first foursome and I was at what you could call a sexual peak. So basically, I was horny all the time.
I moved into a condominium which was like living on Pluto or some planet where I was the only inhabitant. My new condo had an elevator, a gym downstairs, two bathrooms, and a dishwasher. I’d never lived in a nice place before – especially one with a dishwasher — and I truly didn’t know what to do with myself. Keep reading »
Seeking a soulmate for your child doesn’t just happen in the movies, y’all! Like the scene in “Because I Said So,” where the mother posts an ad online secretly seeking a male partner for her daughter, a Philadelphian mom has taken notes and brought the helicopter mom to the next level. Looking for a “Sugar Baby for [her] Son,” this mom asks for a 19-year-old or younger to swipe her son’s V-Card before he heads to Harvard. Keep reading »
If you’re a graphic designer, or know a graphic designer, you’ve probably heard them complain about how often they’re asked to work for free. Designers are often “invited” to do work on spec, with the hopes that their designs will be used by a company. Companies do this, promising that “it’ll be a great piece for your portfolio.” But what it really boils down to is people working for free, and companies reaping all the rewards. And this is especially prevalent on Craigslist.
This same thing happens in a lot of other creative industries: Writing, modeling, you name it. For those just starting out, it may make sense to work for free to build up their portfolios. But more and more companies are relying heavily on free labor to do the work, leaving skilled creatives out in the cold. That may be why one disgruntled graphic designer posted the following message to Craigslist: Keep reading »
It was only a matter of time before cronuts, the delicious pastry baby of a croissant and a doughnut, made its way to the Craigslist “Casual Encounters” section. Since chef Dominque Ansel birthed the cronut, they’ve been are so hard to get your mouth on that the people of NYC have taken extreme measures to taste one. Predictably, some have posted Craigslist ads offering to pay up to $40 — that’s eight times the retail price! — for just one cronut.
And once you’ve offered to pay a ridiculous sum of money for a pastry, you’re just a hop, skip and a jump away from trading a cronut for a blowjob. “I want a dirty little slut who is willing to blow me for a genuine Dominique Ansel Bakery cronut,” says the Craigslist ad with the headline “Seeking Cronut Slut.” He’s 34 and has a fresh supply of cronuts for the right woman. But where is he getting his cronut supply? I’m tempted to reply just to see if I can get him to reveal his sources. Must. Try. Cronut. [Huffington Post]
