While writing my book How Not to Be a Dick, (now available in stores and online!), there were a lot of Brooklyn-centric situations that I couldn’t quite fit in. So, for all my loves reading Brokelyn, who already know how I feel about things like 2 Broke Girls, and firemen, I’m giving you a sneak peak inside the book, and some fancy fun extras that effect us in our very own borough, like my thoughts on raves.

Last night’s episode of 2 Broke Girls was a repeat. Boo, but more importantly YAY! During my half an hour break from TV, I decided to hunt through the Twitterverse to see what those crazy kids are saying about the show that at least 10 million of us are watching together. This proved super difficult since a majority were just quoting or saying things like, “#2brokegirls HAHA”, “#2brokegirls I love this show!” I sifted through a crap ton to find ones with actual thought attached to them, to bring you this list. Seriously, 2 Broke Girl fans, you need to work on your communication skills. Twitter highlights and bonus vintage Kat Dennings below! (more…)
‘Tis the season, to drink and eat. This nifty gifty can help you do both, deliciously, for only $11. Brooklyn-based company Royal Rose makes some pretty incredible infused simple syrups. With flavors ranging from Cardamon-Clove and Three Chiles to Rose and Lemon-Lavendar, your gift can make anyone a master mixologist in no time. Or just encourage them to make you more drinks. A bonus cocktail recipe from Royal Rose Syrups below!
In last’s night episode of supposedly “America’s number one new comedy” our favorite 2 Broke Girls find themselves with a busted oven. Simple, “tell the landlord,” you think. Then you find out Max hasn’t been paying the rent, so that won’t work. You guys! Caroline then, unselfishly, offers to sell one of her belongings, an exclusive and expensive T.A.T. ring (is this really a thing, or a made up thing? Tell me, rich people!) for them to get a new oven. And so the brokelynista adventure begins! Cash for gold stores! Bathroom pop-up sales! There’s not much ado about Brooklyn in the episode, however, there were a lot of ethic, sex, and vibrators jokes to spare. (more…)
Let’s admit it: you watched Titanic three times in the theater, and there is some girl/guy you went to high school/college/family reunions with that still claim it as their favorite movie of all time, and they’ll never LET IT GO. And you like to drink. So here’s something you both can enjoy: The Gin and Titonic Ice Cube Tray! This lil’ guy not only makes ice-cube Titanics, but also those pesky icebergs. So you can scream “ICEBERG! STRAIGHT AHEAD” and joyously clink glasses leading to your cubes’ destruction. Does not come with nude drawing of yourself, however.
Egack! A simply designed watch on a SLAP BRACELET?! The void on my wrist/heart has been filled. I’ve been eyeing these puppies for a while, and have been putting off the $40 investment. But what is this? You can get a smaller one (“sized for kids and lady-sized wrists”), and give it to the person who wants to relive the childhood excitement that is the slap bracelet while never being late, for only $19.95! Don’t let the “Jr.” in the title dissuade you. Karina and I tested them: They fit our lady wrists, and they come in a variety of colors.
Who doesn’t love a good yoyo? And I’m not talking about the Ma kind. Module R, an art and design store on Atlantic Avenue, has a design your own yo yo kit for only $16! It comes with a wooden yoyo, a set of acrylic paints and an itty bitty paint brush, all bundled in a well-designed case. Great for the art school drop out on your list, or the ones like me who will crudely draw a ding dong on it, then stroll around Williamsburg, “walking the dog.” $16, Module R, 141 Atlantic Ave.
In this very special Thanksgiving episode, Caroline and Max make mad tips, convince Han to keep the diner open to feed the homeless and Caroline starts to grow a backbone; which is about damn time! Things seem to be going pretty swimmingly. But THEN (dun dun DUHN): Caroline accidentally breaks Max’s mixer. It’s seems though Caroline is getting tougher, she’s still just a rich dumb blonde. When they go to a department store to buy a new one and realize they can’t afford it, they decide to get jobs as Santa’s elves. Hijinx and zingers (too many zingers?) and all the vagina jokes you could hope for ensue! (more…)
There’s been a lot of hubbub going around about the mustache ride at the Brokedown Throwdown this Sunday. What is it exactly? A magic mustache-shaped carpet that whizzes through the air to Disney tunes? A horse with a mustache? Or just a dude with a handlebar mustache holding a sign? You’ll have to come on Sunday to see for yourself! But just because you’re awesome, and I’m pretty ding dang excited to see you at the party, I’m going to give you a little preview of what’s to come. I’ve uploaded some of my top secret plans below. Shhhh, shh, shh… mustache ride. (more…)
The Jug Addicts appearing Sunday at the Brokedown Throwdown.
Are you guys totally, unbelievably psyched for the Brokedown Throwdown on Sunday at Public Assembly? Is your head spinning from the thought of freshly made grilled cheese sandwiches, a Sixpoint open bar, a yo-momma-joke-off and a ding-dang MUSTACHE RIDE? Fantastic, we’re on the same page. Let me throw even more exciting things into the awesome fire for you to ensure the best fall Sunday of all time: What would you say if I told you that not only do we have the awesome ukulele playing comedian Ben Lerman, but also a bonafide JUG BAND?! And that said jug band was called the Jug Addicts?! Well, we do. Jug Addicts and Brokelyn: a pun match made in heaven. A full Brokedown Throwdown schedule, below! (more…)
