Peanut Butter and Charity go together like…. well… Peanut Butter and Jelly. While you can’t make a sandwich with Charity, you can do some pretty neat things. This is one of them. To celebrate National Peanut Month (March), Peanut Butter & Co. and the National Peanut Board are teaming up to create a PB&J Art Exhibit, and they’re calling it “The Nutropolitan Museum of Art”. It’s a FREE event open to the public this weekend in NYC for 3 days only (March 4th – March 6th). Each family in attendance gets a free jar of peanut butter plus a second jar of peanut butter donated to the NYC Food Bank in your honor. Peanut Butter Boy will be attending the press event earlier in the week, but if it’s as cool as it sounds, I may make an entrance on the weekend too! Read on for all the gooey details.

3. If substituting a taxi for the metrocard: raise free hand in the air, point one finger at the sky and whistle (Tip: Women seem to be better at this than men). Inform the driver to take you to the intersection of Mulberry and Spring St. Proceed to the Openhouse Gallery at 201 Mulberry St.

Peanut Butter Boy has more up his sleeve when it comes to charity. Sometime in the very near future I shall make an announcement….
