You’ve seen Abbi destroy one grocery store, now see her try to work at one
Very soon (February to be exact so maybe not that soon), our long national nightmare will be over, and we’ll have more Broad City episodes. Until then, we don’t know, watch the shorts that are being slowly released before Season 3 starts. Or, you could get an up close and personal view of everyone’s favorite misadventuring Brooklyn girls by heading to Bed-Stuy on Monday, because the show will be filming at a food co-op in the neighborhood. NOTE: Do not actually try to get up close and personal, that’s creepy as fuck. (more…)
Well, it’s official. After a summer of rumors, Cameo Gallery has announced that it will close permanently on November 21. We kind of knew it was coming, and probably so did they, but it’s still no fun to hear.
The news comes as the latest in a slew of closures of BK event venues. Cameo has gone the way of Trash Bar, and dozens of other venues that suffered rent hikes and shuttered their windows. (more…)

Maybe you never pictured yourself as a budding urban designer, but Fort Greene Park’s pathways are getting a makeover, and you could be the Nick Arrojo to the Parks Department’s Stacy London. As part of the People Make Parks initiative, the Parks Department is committed to incorporating community suggestions about how parks should look, feel and move.

The worst part about the end of summer, after taking into account the fact that you can’t live at the beach anymore and you have to put your shirt back on before going outside, is that it’s the end of outdoor movie season.

Or so they claim, and you know what? We’re not gonna fight about credit when there are free movies to be seen throughout Brooklyn in October. (more…)

Queens is having a moment, what with being home to the NL EAST CHAMPION NEW YORK METS and being the latest borough real estate’s eye of Sauron has fallen on. Now adding to that, Queens might get a huge infusion of leather fringe shirts, inappropriate Native American headdresses and dudes asking you where they can get some Molly, because the producers of Coachella want to have a three day festival in Flushing Meadows Park. Why it’s not being called “Queenschella” is beyond us, but then, we’re not marketing gurus. (more…)
You can’t hug a tree if you don’t have one to hug, right? Right! via Flickr University of Michigan’s Flickr
Trees do great things, like provide shade and a nice thing to look at while doing some pondering, and oh yeah, spewing out oxygen as a waste product in order to keep all life on Earth going strong. Wouldn’t you want a hardy, life-sustaining part of the planet in your backyard or community garden? Hey great news, you can have one, because this weekend is the first fall tree giveaway courtesy of the MillionTreesNYC project. (more…)
