How you'll feel if you miss this party

How you’ll feel if you miss this party

It must be because it’s fall that everyone is stuck on school stuff, that or we’re caught in some kind of inescapable nostalgia trap Still, here it is, because we’ve taken you to homecoming and now Mary’s Bar in Park Slope wants to take you to prom. Mary’s Bar isn’t having just any prom though, they’re having a prom on Halloween itself. A Carrie-themed Halloween prom. Wear something nice, but not so nice that you can’t get it covered in blood or burnt up in it. (more…)

More of this in Park Slope? Sure, sounds good.

It’s no surprise with the sky high rent in this city that restaurants are constantly opening and closing, and from time to time they seem to be playing their own version of musical chairs. To a certain degree that is what’s happening in Park Slope with Cajun pizzeria Two Boots Pizza, which Park Slope Stoop noticed is coming back to Park Slope. (more…)

Nicer than where we live. via Brooklyn Properties

As we all know, before he was forced to flee price increases for public housing, Mayor Bill de Blasio and his family led a charmed life living in Park Slope. That’s over now, and because their house was getting lonely, you can now rent it (to live there we mean, not for parties) and tell people how you live in Mayor Tall’s house. Thinking it can’t be you? Well, it won’t be fore financial reasons, because the three-story, three-bedroom house Park Slope townhouse is going for $4,975/month. The only downside? It doesn’t come with a cool intimidating police security patrol. (more…)

dr-horrible sing along blog

This, sadly, is who you are inside, not Captain Hammer

In the comic book movie that is our lives, we go around thinking that we’re the heroes, but there are only so many heroes out there. The sad reality is that we’re much more likely to be the hapless bystanders or even hapless villains of our own stories. So, why not embrace that reality next month by buying a ticket to the Doctor Horrible’s Sing-Along Blog Sing-Along Party at Union Hall and singing your hapless, loveless lungs out with other wannabe world rulers?

video gallery

Goodbye to all this. via Facebook

One of the drawbacks of living in an age where we can all binge watch Netflix without pants or forced social contact is the disappearance of video shops. Park Slope Stoop reports the pantless Netflixing that defines our era has likely claimed Video Gallery (316 7th Avenue), Park Slope’s last movie rental store, after 15 years in business. (more…)

lefferts community food co-op

Thrill to the minutiae of running a grocery store…but not in Park Slope! via Facebook

If there’s one thing that Park Slope has been lording over us for lo this many years, it’s their fancy food co-op, full of Daily Show segments, ridiculous arguments, celebrities skipping work shifts and low prices on food, that last one being most important of all. People in Prospect-Lefferts Gardens got sick of Park Slope’s shit though, so they’re opening their own food co-op this year, the Lefferts Community Food Co-op, according to DNA Info. (more…)

freddy's bar

Bring some meat, it’s welcome here. via Facebook

Look, this Monday’s Labor Day, and we get it; for most people, this means that it’s time to regret that you once again called it the “Summer of YOUR NAME” and didn’t actually go skydiving, learn to play an instrument, or get anywhere near sculpting that beach body. It’s also the time of year when you’re likely to walk into your local pharmacy and see decorations for Halloween and beyond for sale in the seasonal section which goddamnit, already, really? That’s okay, because Freddy’s (627 5th Avenue, South Slope) is here to help, with a free Labor Day BBQ. (more…)

bartoon

Roundy bartooned our own Tim Donnelly at our Beer Book release party at The Graham earlier this year

Some bars just look better on paper. Without the sticky floors, rowdy ex-frat boys and frustrated bartenders, your favorite bar sounds so much more idyllic. Bar Scrawl illustrates Brooklyn bars in their most perfect states, in a series of comics that bring you to your favorite drinking establishments without the tab.

Bill Roundy, also known as the artist behind Bar Scrawl, will be exhibiting his drawings at South Slope bar Supercollider (609 4th Avenue) for the month of September! Head out on Friday, September 5 for the opening reception, where you can drink a selection of 18 beers, the taps of which have already been illustrated by Roundy himself. (more…)

We don’t know what it is about Nutella that makes people INSANE for it (is it the Kobe endorsement?), but that’s what it does, and we can live with that. What we’re unsure of is whether Nutella fans in Brooklyn will be able to keep it together now that the word is out, courtesy of Park Slope Stoop, that a Nutella bar is going to open in Park Slope soon.

No longer at your cervix. via Facebook

Hey, remember Boing Boing, the Park Slope breastfeeding boutique that offered discounts to lesbian couples and whose owner wrote about the possibility of being priced out of Park Slope? That possibility has become a reality it turns out, because according to Here’s Park Slope, owner Karen Paperno is closing Boing Boing’s doors in order to focus on a charity trip to Haiti. (more…)
