The new year means a new outlook on life, new goals and maybe the chance to newly reconsider any questionable hairstyle decisions you made last year. Bushwick’s Boobie Trap bar is starting off the year by taking aim at one of the most controversial dude looks in recent years: the man bun. The bar is offering “one full booze bottle” to any guy who removes their top knot on the premises, as the sign above states.
“We’d film the amputation and pin the bun up on the wall,” Boobie Trap co-owner Kristen North told us. (more…)
Ahh, bar bingo. It’s not just your granny’s game anymore. These days, bingo is just a great way to gamble, drink beer, and swear a lot when the person next to you screams out their win as if an alien is erupting from their chest cavity.
Bar bingo took Brooklyn by storm around ’08, but has sadly died down with new fads like bar trivia and the never-ending comeback of karaoke. And while many local spots like Union Hall and Bell House do host bingo-related events once in awhile, demonic websites like Yelp and other internet info sources are usually out of date.
Now B4 you freak out, we here at Brokelyn dug deep into the ball basket and found out where you can still feed your bingo addiction on a weekly basis! So grab your bingo markers and remember the ‘ole saying: Try not to take your bingo too seriously, because at the end of the day you will find that it’s just a load of balls.(more…)
You already know how we feel about Boobie Trap, the breast and board game-filled bar that calls Bushwick home: we love it. You also probably know how we feel about pizza: that we love it. We weren’t expecting our two loves to be slammed together into one great taste, but today DNA Info reports that Boobie Trap opened up a pizza joint across the street from their bar called Pizza Party, so lo and behold, our love grows more and more.

What it is: A funky corner bar that looks like a little girl’s dream room crossed with a Quentin Tarantino movie.
Why we love it: The vibe here is pure adult sleepover party fun: boobs adorn the walls, and the tables are inlaid with board games like Candyland and Scrabble. Grab a page of the rated-R coloring books or study the collection of dolls hanging around the bar.
What to order: The selection here is gloriously cheap and divey, full of good cans like cheap speckled hen and value meal beer-and-shot specials. The bar’s food menu is the tits too: it’s loaded with BBQ, such as pulled pork, spare ribs and smoked seitan, with sides like potato salad, baked beans and brussel sprouts.
Regular tip: Owner Kristen North was a bartender at several spots around the city including the Knitting Factory before opening Boobie Trap last year. At night, the curtain comes down and the bar’s signature “Fuck off” sign glows in all its glory.
