Soule Restaurant: The Buzz

Soulé International is holding a coat drive for Coats for Kids this winter! Information and the drop box will be available at Soulé shortly... Jerry Seinfeld's new reality show set up a casting tent at the Brooklyn Flea Saturday, hoping to attract couples who want to air their dirty laundry on TV. Perhaps wisely, locals weren't biting, and only about a half dozen couples stopped by the casting tent for "The Marriage Ref" at the Fort Greene market... Congratulations, Councilwoman Letitia James for winning last month’s election... Fort Green Park doesn’t exist, according to the MTA map... Pratt institute has decided to demap portions of Ryerson St, Grand Ave and Steuben St, on what is now the Pratt Institute campus, “in order that the closed street areas may be integrated with abutting property of Pratt Institute for redevelopment for educational purposes.”... Clinton Hill resident Amy Oztan visits movie set in Brooklyn and takes pictures for her blog, 'Filming in Brooklyn,’ where she posts movie locations in Brooklyn. Her latest is a shot of Salma Hayek in a guest spot on NBC's '30 Rock' in Cadman Plaza Park... Jamaican reggae artist Major Mackerel was recently slashed in the head and arms with a sword in East Flatbush. Goodness... What possessed protestors from the Westboro Baptist Church of Topeka, KS to come to Brooklyn preaching fire and brimstone? Protestors with anti-Semitic, anti-Obama, and anti-homosexual signs were outnumbered by about 30 to 1 in September as they protested downtown Brooklyn and Park Slope. The Topeka group, which included children encountered counter-protestors at every turn bearing placards that read, “Jesus had 2 dads” and “We say NO! to Racism, Anti-Semitism, Homophobia and Hate.”... You know, sometimes being a Brooklynite just makes me proud…
