The Yellow King has been there the whole time. Of course!
Time is a flat circle and we are trapped in eternity, doomed to repeat episodes of True Detective over and over again over drinks, which doesn’t sound so bad actually. Still, you don’t want to do it alone, so why not hit The Silent Barn’s Yellow King welcome party/8-hour marathon of True Detective this Sunday? Starting at 1pm and leading into the big finale at 9pm, they’ll be showing every episode of the first season, with time scheduled afterwards for people to pick their collective jaws off the floor and stop weeping.

Everyone loves doughnuts, of this we’re sure. Frankly, if you don’t like them, you can close this tab and just keep on walkin’ buddy, because we don’t want to know you. Now that any presumed doughnut-haters are gone, we can share the exciting news that vegan doughnut emporium Dun-Well Doughnuts is hiring a weekend baker to make some doughnuts for them. Do you have the pastry skills to do it? (more…)

Awards, awards, awards. Always going to the same famous, beautiful rich people for doing their famous, rich people things. Isn’t it about time us shlocky normal folks got rewarded for the everyday victories we feel good about, like DDing for that party that time, or actually moderating ourselves to a reasonable four beers last Thursday? Well, apparently, now we can. At the Lisa’s Choice Awards, hosted by artist/comedian/self-proclaimed psychotherapist Lisa Levy at Pine Box Rock Shop next Friday, everyone can get an award for the achievement of their choice. At least, anyone who wants one can. (more…)
We crowned James’ bloody the best in Brooklyn, but a new contest wants some challengers.
When it comes to bloody marys, we’ve already had our say as to what the best one in Brooklyn is, and we’ll gladly stick to that decision. But obviously that argument never ends, and it’s not like there are any losers when people get together to argue about and try alcohol. To that end, the folks at the NYC Hot Sauce Expo are doing a citywide search for the best bloody mary with their Bloody Mary Mix Down. The competition is coming to Bed-Stuy’s Beast of Bourbon on Monday and, if you bartenders out there want to rep your bar’s bloody, you can sign up to compete now. (more…)

Remember LoftOpera, those guys and gals who are making opera cool again? Well, they’re alive and well and living in Paris are all set to do a show about living in Paris. So once you’re done recovering from the commercial oppression of the holiday-that-isn’t-even-a-holiday (I’m talkin’ to you, Valentine’s Day), how about taking some highbrow art in a loft with a view of the city skyline with LoftOpera’s production of LaBohème?

Do you need a couch, or do you need dinner? via Flickr user micahaci
Bunna Cafe, the nomadic vegan Ethiopian restaurant that has travelled from Smorgasburg to private Brooklyn events to indoor markets is now ready to move into its permanent home at 1084 Flushing Avenue in Bushwick.
But they need your help in providing a little bit of seating. So, they’re asking for someone out there to donate their couch to them, in exchange for steamed kale, obviously. (more…)
People love dinosaurs. We can’t quite be sure why. Could be the mystery surrounding them and how they lived, could be Jurassic Park, could be a yearning for a time when the world was just one whole continent smushed together. Whatever your reason for loving dinosaurs is, dino lovers of all stripes can find some fun at the 100% Dino Party at the Silent Barn, on Sunday at 8pm. Dinosaur movie breakdowns from an expert, a (safe) live volcano and uh, dinosaur erotica are all on the docket for Sunday. (more…)
If only someone had been there to shake the crime stick at them.
Hey there foppish 20somethings of Bushwick, in your darkened bars lit only by hanging Edison bulbs: do you know what’s lurking around those trendy bars you love? CRIME. Yes, despite the Twelve Years of Bloomberg ushering in an era where even thinking about committing crimes (except white collar ones…) seemed to get you a police response, you’d think there was no more of it in Brooklyn. But think again loser, because investigative journalist Conor Woodman went to a bar in Bushwick and he found crime. Well, a pickpocketing staged for TV cameras. But, crime! Those terrified Super Bowl visitors were right all along. (more…)
