The Princeton NJ Cicada Merch You Need in Your Life is Here
Our friends at Planet Princeton are offering Princeton cicada merch to commemorate this only once every 17 year event. Get it while you can. You must order by this Wednesday (June 23rd).
There's a t-shirt for everything, so why not a Princeton Cicada t-shirt? Aren't they cute? I love them. The cicada invasion seems like the only thing people are talking about around here lately...me included. I'm obsessed.
When I go into Wegmans, after hearing the critters in the parking lot, I overhear people talking about them, and how loud they are, and I join in the conversation.
I brought my father to a doctor's appointment in Princeton last week, off of State Road, and they were even louder there. Fascinating. The doctor talked about how he road his bike to work, and they were slamming into him...ewwww. Lol.
I took my daughter to softball practice the other night and one of the other parents told me they couldn't even sit out on their deck on the Lawrenceville/Princeton border, because the sound was deafening.
In Palmer Square, downtown Princeton, the bent spoon made Chocolate Chip Cicada Ice Cream, which was sold out before I could try it. Darn.
The loud creatures are on everyone's minds.
The bugs will be in the area only until around the 4th of July, but, the t-shirt and conversations about them will last so much longer.
You can order the t-shirts here. There are three styles...all awesome...my favorite is the orange one. They were designed by local graphic artist, Kevin Ranallo, of In8Graphics.
The cool thing about these t-shirts is that you'll also be supporting local journalism when you buy them.
PS. This brand of t-shirt runs a little small, so order up a size.
Remember to order by this Wednesday (June 23rd).
