It’s the Holidays folks and there is a bunch of stuff happening this holiday weekend. So without further ado, here it goes. Due to popular demand, the Spread Love It’s The Uptown Way Tees are now available at Word Up Books (2113 Amsterdam Ave @ 165th Street). While you are there, make sure you pick up a few books for those folks on your shopping list.
Today is also the last day of the Bread And Yoga Holiday Market (5000 Broadway) so make sure you hit them up. Our good friend, Andrew Short of the 83 Mark Collective, will have a limited amount of the UC tees as well as his own awesome collection.
