Pillow fight, plus...NYC was Borf'd?

I hope everyone had an opportunity to take in the absolutely lovely weather we enjoyed this weekend. Certainly one of the best Easter/cherry blossom weekends we've had in recent memory, weather-wise that is. The tourist volume has been intense the past few days, but will hopefully quiet down to a dull roar as families start to head home this week.

Those of you who happened to find yourselves in Dupont Circle yesterday may have noticed a peculiar sight: a bunch of people engaged in pillow fights. However, despite the spontaneous appearance of the feathered fights, it seems they were actually a coordinated effort. Yesterday was some international pillow fighting day or something, at least that's what the Huffington Post is saying.



And speaking of peculiar sites, the Mrs. and I recently returned home from a trip to NYC. During our meanderings around Greenwich Village, we encountered this scene, which should be familiar to many of you around DC:



I guess I didn't realize that Borf made it up as far as NY?

I saw a Borf tag in Paris and sent the photo to DCist back in 2005. If you go to Dcist and search fro Borf and Paris it should show up.
