Well, it’s here, the as-of-yet unnamed massive blizzard that’s going to dump a foot of snow on our doorsteps and cause everyone to experience the joys of working from home. It also means people usually engage in some strange behavior wrought by what we can only describe as “snow madness.” Make sure you don’t get caught up in it, because you’re a hardened New Yorker, not some easily spooked SoCal flibbertigibbet who can’t understand the concept of frozen precipitation.

Tastes enough like meat that you’ll wonder if it actually is.
The city might be gearing up for a snowpocalypse at the moment, but don’t let that distract you from the important things. For instance, you have about three hours to snag your free Chipotle burrito before the entire city implodes in a cloud of powdery snow. What’s that? You haven’t heard about the burrito chain’s big push to bring its Sofritas vegan burrito to the masses? Well, the deal is, you buy one of their new tofu-based gut-bombs and you can get another free burrito of any type in the future. The only catch? You have to eat tofu and you can only use your voucher between tomorrow and February 28. (more…)
What it is: Beer garden and sports bar with great grub eats, board and other games to keep you busy.
Why we love it: This is a sports nut’s dream. You can count on Red White & Brew to show the game you can’t watch at home since you finally cut the cord. And if you’re not exactly obsessed with your team’s road to the Super Bowl, you can duck out back to the beer garden to escape the cheering maniacs. On select Fridays and Saturdays, a cover band comes on through to keep your head bobbing to some live music.
Who to bring: Hang out with your fellow fantasy football owners to talk smack on any given Sunday, Monday, or Thursday, a few pals to rock out with to the live music or tunes of your choosing thanks to their jukebox, or even a date! Use one of their many board games to break the ice. And seriously did we mention the back garden?
What to order: Even if you’re the pickiest beer drinker, Red White & Brew will have something for you. With 14 taps and at least 6 of them from local to international to micro breweries, there’s something for everyone.
Fun fact: The space has been a bar in some form or another since the 1920s, so celebrate history and another Clue or Guess Who victory while you take another sip.
Ever have a real good time at a cool show at Brooklyn Bowl, and wanted to thank the person who made it all happen? If it’s been in the last few years, you can probably thank Lucas Sacks, who’s been part of the talent booking team at the venue for the last three years and has been the main booker the past six months. Beyond thanking him, you might also want to ask Lucas how it is he managed to make a career out of booking acts like Robert Plant, Lauryn Hill, Deer Tick and The Roots. We wanted to know too, and Lucas was happy to clue us in. (more…)
