Hi if you’re a narc or a square please kindly X out of this post and read this instead, but for the rest of you, relax! It’s Friday! And Sunday is egg-laying rabbit day or something, but it’s also 4/20, that most highest of holidays. Let us take a moment to acquaint you with your 4/20 spirit guides for this year’s holiday, the ladies of Broad City. Not only are Abbi and Ilana, the two young New Yorkers on the show, unabashed stoners, they’re lady bro stoners, the likes of which have never been seen on TV before.

Has your bike barely survived this winter without falling apart, the same that the rest of us have? No shame in that, it’s been a tough winter for things being sentient and non-sentient. But if you want to give it some love, and you’re a lady or identify as one, WE Bike NYC invites you to Crown Heights’ Bicycle Roots at 6pm on Saturday evening to get a rundown on how to get your bike ready for spring and summer. Sorry, no boys allowed though. (more…)
On Earth Day (April 22), you can celebrate the Earth, celebrate sustainability and celebrate yourself all at once: Babeland in Park Slope is giving away free Solar Bullet vibrators to the first 25 people who walk in the store! Doors open at noon, so take an extra long lunch if you need to rush down to Babeland door for your free sex toy. And don’t forget to properly recycle your old battery-powered devices so you do something good for the Earth while doing something goof for yourself.

Brooklyn! Everyone wants to live here these days, but how can you be sure you really live here? If you’ve experienced any of these things that only a true Brooklynite has, you know that you definitely do! (more…)

Brooklyn is a borough of many tastes all colliding together at once, which gives you plenty of options when it comes to nightlife. If you’re into it, we probably have it. With that being said, it still struck us as odd that Barclays CEO/sentient hashtag Brett Yormark told the Hollywood Reporter that Brooklyn has 385 country bars (thanks to a heads up from Atlantic Yard Report’s Norman Oder). That’s a lot of twang! And also possibly just made up out of thin air? Join us in trying to name all of these bars. (more…)
This could be you, at work, if you’re willing to pick up and move. via Flickr user Smokers High Life
Despite the fact that there are some cool jobs here, the last national job forecast we saw advised people seeking money in exchange for services rendered to go west, including Colorado. And lo and behold, we’ve come across a job that you can only have in Colorado and not here: pot critic. Yes, seriously, pot critic. Sadly, you can’t telecommute to the job, so the question is, would you pack up and move for this job? (more…)

The G isn’t exactly a line one that’s known for technological innovation, unless you count “waiting for so long it feel like you’ve gone back in time” as a form of time travel. Which maybe you do. But over the weekend, we noticed what looks like a promising upgrade for the G. Not more than four cars per train, but one of those fancy touchscreen kiosks that give you directions and real time-information on train delays. Well look who’s fancy now. (more…)
In light of today’s sad announcement from Incubator Arts Project that it will not be renewing its lease (due to rising costs of running a nonprofit), the theatre world sure could use a pick-me-up. And just in time, a ragtag band of artists known as the Letter of Marquee (LOM) Theatre Company are putting on a show. It’s Passover, so your reaction of course, is “What makes this show different from all other shows?” Well for starters, it’s free. And it’s taking place in bars across Brooklyn starting next Tuesday. And it also involves pirates. (more…)
