Hey guys, we know we wrote about it a little while ago, but remember how TromaDance is coming to Bushwick on June 27 and 28? You know, the free all-day film festival celebrating independent movie making that any schlub can go to, because it’s free? They recently announced that comedy troupe Murderfist will be performing live, and to celebrate the occasion, Murderfist made some TromaDance promo videos. They’re NSFW-ish, so they’re after the jump, but if you can get away with watching a 30-second video that features ass tits, you should definitely watch them. Come on, it’s Friday! (more…)

While the Clinton Hill bar got some press this week for telling parents to pack up their kids and leave, Bed-Stuy City Councilman Robert Cornegy is making waves in the parenting world with the opposite tack. He’s opened Brooklyn’s first “community lactation station,” for mother who are out and about and need to pop in to feed their kids. Expect him to really milk this one when he’s up for re-election.

Horrible robot baby sitters will even take care of our children one day.
Since an early age, you probably couldn’t imagine the future without robots thanks to the robots that proliferate in pop culture and blockbuster movies, from Battlestar Galactica to Terminator to The Matrix. Now that we’re nearing the future, there’s more and more robots around us, taking control of us. You may have become part robot yourself, with your iPhone in one hand and tablet in the other, Google Glass on your face, your mind in the Cloud, and even the hand used to mix your drink will soon be robot hand… To prevent your electronic body part extensions from running out of juice, meet others of your kind at the 100% Robot Party at Silent Barn, (603 Bushwick Ave), tomorrow night.

The summer this won’t happen. Photo by Kenny Rodriguez via Facebook
We’re all rightfully excited about the summer, and the rebirth of outdoor fun in the city for a few months. Sadly, there’ll be one summer tradition that’s hanging up its viking helmet and beer bong, as after five years, Tiki Disco won’t be returning to the Roberta’s garden. It leaves an enormous speaker-sized hole in our hearts, but the summer must go on. (more…)
This morning we learned of a polyamorous house in Bushwick seeking roommates looking to escape judgement. The three-story building has fifteen bedrooms and its occupancy is being coordinated by Leon Feingold, the co-founder and co-president of polyamorist group Open Love New York. Feingold said they’re not advertising to the public and are currently only considering “friends and friends of friends.” That’s tragic, because this is one of the more appealing housing options we’ve come across in a while.

You know how you sometimes (always) wish that beer would just arrive at your doorstep on command? Well, now it can, thanks to a highly sophisticated transport device taking over the city: the cargo bike.
No, this isn’t your run of the mill, throw your kids in a basket tandem. Bed Stuy Beer Works, a beer retailer and wholesaler in Bed-Stuy, has teamed up with cargo bike delivery cooperative Full Lane Logistics to bring hoppy brewy goodness to your home – and cold, too. It’s the perfect news to learn as we gear up for summer. (more…)
In addition to being delicious, this Cuban supports theater. via Facebook
Trip on the sidewalk in Bushwick and the odds are you’ll find yourself sprawled out on the ground in front of a restaurant (and everyone will be laughing at you). Bushwick has so many restaurants that even if you live there you might not be able to afford to try all of them. Until now, because eight of Bushwick’s best food spots are inviting you out to a night to of gluttony in support of theater at A Taste of Bushwick on June 16. (more…)
