Another Harry Situation May Be Coming to Columbia

Get your morning scoop on another Harry situation, poking your favorite clothing item, a Mexican spaceship, a Jell-O competition and a not-so-fancy food show in today's local blog round-up.

  • I don't know if it's Harry Potter week in my world or what, but it appears Ms. Emma Watson might be attending Columbia University in the fall.  The Harry Potter starlet has yet to confirm her attendance at the New York university nor has Columbia confirmed that they'll be providing a storage locker for her broomsticks.

  • A number of New York-based fashion companies are ready to be poked, as the social media wave peaks over couture.  There's really no point in walking away from the Internet in your $2,000 gladiators if the Internet's just going to follow you anyways. [Guest of a Guest]
  • The delicious Soho-based Mexican spaceship Calexico touched down in Carroll Gardens on Tuesday, and the locals couldn't be happier to have a nearby taco dreamland. This stuff isn't just adequate, it has achieved "mind-blowing status," reports one Brooklyn blogger. [A Brooklyn Life]
  • Missed the fact that a Jello-O mold competition went down in Gowanus last Saturday night?  It's OK, here's a quick wrap-up complimented with video from The Feed-bag. [McBrooklyn]
  • You'd think you make some fine-looking food, do you, fancy pants?  Well, that's just too darn bad, because this Sunday the unFancy Food Show is going down at the East River Bar from noon to 6pm.  Come early, leave soaked in Jell-o. {The Feed-Bag)
