We know good hair is a primary concern of Brokelyn readers because of the response we got on this cheap men’s Brooklyn haircut post and this one for the ladies, and also Bill de Blasio’s mullet. Next Tuesday, Oct. 22, a Park Slope salon is offering a chance to get a half-price ‘do and do right by someone with cancer. (more…)
Mario was a stooge of the monarchy, actually. Fun game though
There is, basically, nothing to look forward to on Mondays. Even if your birthday is on a Monday, you’re more likely to do something the preceding weekend than expect people to enjoy themselves the day after the weekend ends. So aren’t we surprised to be looking forward to this coming Monday, when the skint and Union Hall join forces to provide three hours of free old-school video games at Our Princess Is In Another Castle.

After some namby-pamby liberal egghead judge threw stop-and-frisk in the judicial toilet and flushed it without a second thought, New Yorkers knew crime would go up. Mayoral hopeful Joe Lhota even helpfully suggested getting rid of it led to the recent motorcycle gang beating on the West Side Highway. But little did we know that the criminal mindset would filter down to our animal friends, as Park Slope, under seige from a feral bully cat, is now finding out. (more…)
Ah ha, so the true superpower was the power of reading! via Facebook
Heroes come in all sorts of shapes and sizes, we can’t all be Thor after all. Or even Hawkeye. But if you like kids and like the idea of them being able to read all good and stuff, you can be heroic in your own right, and even better, you can get paid for it. That’s because the Park Slope location of 826NYC, otherwise known as the Superhero Supply Store, is looking for a program coordinator to make sure they don’t (metaphorically) trip over their own shoelaces. Don’t forget to bring your Batarang to the interview. (more…)
So, Park Slope’s Walk-In Kitchen: it exists, and it even comes with a an endorsement of sorts from our own handsome food expert, Kenji. Still, maybe you’re on the fence about it. Or maybe you just want as little human interaction as possible because Seamless has spoiled you that way. Well, good news: the Walk-In Cookbook will not only deliver to you now, and not only can you order online, but they’ve also got a 20% discount code for you to take advantage of between now and Friday.

What it is: An intimate little tavern on the edge of Park Slope with a fine cocktail menu, friendly staff and excellent jukebox.
Why we love it: The owners Michael and Ann are so cool you’ll want to become their third partner. The brick-lined space is a great place to meet your neighbors or catch up with old friends. It’s one of those bars you won’t feel like an outcast if you just want to bring a book and read. (more…)
Miss the Saturday Brooklyn Flea at Fort Greene? Don’t worry, you can always catch it in Williamsburg on Sunday. Miss it that day too? Well, you’re SOL, at least until Columbus Day, when finally, finally one of those Brooklyn Flea expansionswe’ve been hearing about comes to Park Slope. Which, how did it ever take so long to end there in first place? (more…)
Sometimes you’re just feeling OK. Not “blah,” but also not good or bad. You just feel OK, and you don’t want to get inundated with a bunch of places telling you where to find the best time ever. You just wanna have some alright sushi and call it an evening. Enter Alex Watt’s “OK in BK,” in which Alex will take you on a brief guided through places that are OK. First up, Park Slope! (more…)
You’ve still got time to darken the door of this dark bar.
Have a good weekend guys? Avoid being trapped by hipsters? Maybe do a little repenting? Did you go to Jackie’s Fifth Amendment expecting to have a very meaningful time because it was supposed to close Saturday? Well, we’ve got good news and bad news. The bad news is that you didn’t have a meaningful experience, because of the good news, which is that the bar is still open. For how much longer, no one knows. (more…)
Your last chance to look as good as this mannequin, for cheap. Via Facebook
Want new clothes? Pff, we all do buddy, get in line. Sorry, that was mean, haven’t had our coffee yet. But the point remains, everyone wants clothes to wear, but they don’t want to pay full price for them. If only there was a way…oh, here’s one. It’s a little sad though/ After four years in existence, Park Slope thrift store Odd Twin (164 5th Avenue) is closing its doors forever. The silver lining to this is that you get to take advantage of their closing sale, which includes up to 50% off items in the store. (more…)
