If you’re suffering the wave of back-to-school nostalgia that Target commercials and Old Navy window displays forces on the post-grad crowd, you’re not alone. You may be done shopping for dorm supplies (take a minute to celebrate never needing a shower caddy again) and composition books may never be in your life again, but you’re never too old to continue learning.
College classes are tempting, and expensive, to broaden your education, but there are plenty of university-less classes in New York that will teach you valuable, and practical lessons, like new languages, how to further your career, make a ceramic bowl, code an app, and much more, and you shouldn’t have to take out any loans to do it!

Wouldn’t it be cool if you could go out to dinner and be certain that your favorite alcoholic beverages were available, for around $3 per drink? Have we got news for you: Brooklyn has some awesome BYOB restaurants, so going out to eat and drinking cheap doesn’t have to exist only in your dreams.
A BYOB restaurant is a beautiful, cost-effective option often overlooked in a city where you’re constantly stuck $12 for something you already have in your fridge and could’ve poured into your own mason jar. We’re obviously not taking any kind of anti-bar stance here, but if you have a few odd beers at your apartment and want to get rid of them, why not take them out for a night on the town at at one of Brooklyn’s best BYOB restaurants?

Listen, team. A new NFL season is upon is. The days of relaxing at home, watching baseball and golf, and not suffering from concussions are OVER. It’s time you suit up, get yourselves ready and in some semblance of shape, get the hell out there, and be ready to ruin that summer body you probably didn’t have all over again. Put on your uniforms: loose-fitting, elastic-wasted pants and a jersey that’s one size too big, which you’ll need to hide that new wing and beer gut. You better come hungry. For victory! For glory! For like 10 wings for just under 7 dollars! Once the whistle blows, this shit is getting real. Because it’s time. It’s time to eat your weight in chicken wings for mere pennies during wing specials at these 9 spots. (more…)
