It’s Monday, the start of another boring week of drudgery at your office or your home office. Maybe you’re sick of wearing a suit or dealing with Optimum and the world’s worst internet service and you want a job that’s wild and free. Well, this documentary on Bill, the Best Pizza delivery man, will give you an insight into another way of living. Perks of the job include exercise, making good money compared to bike messaging and having people get excited at your presence. Downsides include getting jumped by kids, trying to balance two bags of pizza on your bike and severed pinky tips. Do those risks outweigh the fact that sitting in a chair every day could be killing you? Only you can decide!

Not with these though, these look great. via Facebook

Everyone wants their next food creation to be the next cronut or next ramen burger, anything but the next cupcake, because that’s how you go bankrupt. Of course, what’s the magic formula to making a food that people take Instagrams of themselves waiting on the line, buying the thing, eating the thing and throwing up because they are too many of the thing? No one quite knows, but dispenser of cupcakes and love advice Allison Robicelli is openly declaring her intention to make an Instagram-worthy, line-causing ridiculous food product at her Bay Ridge bakery (9009 5th Avenue), as part of Robicelli’s Jump the Shark Summer. This is so crazy it just might work. (more…)

bushwick beverages

Everyone’s pretty happy when booze is involved.

There are so many damn local breweries and wineries these days that it’s impossible to keep up and drink all of their products. Unless of course…unless someone put all of the alcohol in one place, like some kind of festival or celebration. Oh hey look! Arts + Crafts did just that, with next weekend’s upcoming Bushwick Beverages, a beer and wine festival allowing you to wander Troutman Street drinking the best local beer and wine that’s out there.

Like this, but in front of the museum

We can never have enough farm stands. Well, probably we can, but we haven’t reached capacity yet, whatever it might be. So let’s give a big neighborly welcome to the newest farm stand in Brooklyn opening on Thursday, located right in front of the Brooklyn Museum and run by Project EATS. What’s so special about this one? Well, for one, the food will come from farms in Brownsville and East New York. And eventually from the grounds of the Brooklyn Museum itself, so there’s that.

j'eatjet? brunch

Brunch: it’s that magical meal that’s somehow both over- AND underrated. It’s a great way to start a weekend or coast through a Sunday morning hangover, a meal where you can order a boozy drink and loudly proclaim “It’s five o’clock somewhere, right? Who cares? It’s brunch o’clock here!” to the hearty enjoyment of nobody, because come on. Brunch can also be expensive, as day drinking is apparently a fancy affair once you introduce a fruit cup to the occasion.

Still, there’s no need to be one of the five richest kings of Europe to get your boozy brunch on. Instead of buying a sixer of Milwaukee’s Best to drink alongside some hastily-made scrambled eggs at home, class it up by heading to these eight restaurants which offer the best Brooklyn unlimited brunch drink specials. And even though we’ll be focusing on the bottomless, don’t forget The Saint Catherine’s excellent 2-for-1 brunch cocktail deal we recently alerted all ye brunching faithful to. (more…)

You can help adorable dogs like Ramona Quimby here, just by drinking. What a deal! via Facebook

Despite the idea that a lot of people love dogs, some people mistreat or abandon them. Those people are dicks, but this weekend, you’ve got a chance to counteract some of that behavior by doing what do you best: Drinking! This Saturday, July 12, Badass Brooklyn Animal Rescue is partnering up with the Brooklyn Brewery for a tap takeover and silent auction at Rosamunde Sausage Grill (285 Bedford Ave. in Williamsburg) to save dogs from being put to sleep at pounds in the South and help find them homes up North.

If you can get a seat at Pok Pok, you can experience one of New York’s best cheap eats. via Facebook

As befitting Brooklyn’s reputation as a place for good food (for everyone but Vogue anyway), it’s been popping up in “Best Of NYC” food lists like New York Magazine‘s Best Cheap Eats more and more. After having 15 and then 18 spots the last couple years though, Brooklyn had 31 of the 100 Best Cheap Eats this year, with restaurants spanning from Brighton Beach to Greenpoint. While on the one hand this could mean longer waits at your favorite spots, on the other hand, more places on this list means a bigger cut of appropriations from the City Council. Or at least that’s how we understand it. So there’s that. (more…)

The United States of Alcohol. Via.

It’s America weekend, and as we all know, Summer America is the Best America. Summer America means drinking cold cheap beer in the hot outdoors. We’re suckers for clever beer can branding in the summer time, the kind that plays off our patriotism, our nostalgia or our desire to at least not look like your average frat bro/basic bitch when guzzling mass market hops. So using our expertise as cheap beer consumers, we present: Brokelyn’s definitive ranking of the throwback and AmeriCans of summer 2014. (more…)

ice cream takedown

Can you do better than Captain Scummy? We hope so.

It’s ice cream season (well, it’s always ice cream season but it’s especially so now) but you don’t limit yourself to that corporate ice cream like Baskin’ Robbins or Ben & Jerry’s. You make it yourself, with love and effort, and your friends love it so much that sometimes they ring your buzzer at 3am asking you for some of your homemade stuff. If that describes you, than the Ice Cream Takedown, going down at the Bell House on July 27, wants you to put your best ice cream up against other Brooklynites confident enough to proclaim that their ice cream brings all the boys to the yard.

The Saint Catherine

Why have one Lillet Rose when you could have two? via The Saint Catherine

Our love for The Saint Catherine is well-established, what with the a whole post declaring it loudly. Still, there’s always room to love a place more, especially if they do something like make it much easier for you to drink your weekend away. And what do you know, The Saint Catherine is doing that, with an email they sent alerting us to the fact that they’re offering two-for-one specials on their brunch cocktails starting this weekend.
