You guys tired of all the free outdoor movies happening this summer? We know, it’s like, “Hey man, let us PAY for our entertainment, you’re making it too easy.” Well, bad news for those of you intent on paying: Habana Outpost‘s typically excellent Sunday summer movie schedule just landed on our inbox, and guess what? It’s a bunch of free excellent movies. (more…)
1. Get together with people at LaunchPad and watch 16mm cartoons. Yeah, cartoons! (Friday)
2. Put a tear in your beer (which is a free Sixpoint if you get there early enough) at the Brooklyn Country Jubilee (Friday)
3. The Brain Cave Festival and it’s one-hour Radeberger open bar continue through the weekend (Friday – Sunday)
As the weather becomes naturally more warmer, we look for signs of summer everywhere, like say, the re-opening of Habana Outpost. And oh, what do you know, it’s this Saturday. And while the frigid winter might have had you welcoming a future marked by global warming, the environment still needs some of tender lovin’ care courtesy of the people of Earth. So Habana Outpost, which already has already had their bathrooms recognized for eco-friendliness, is hosting their sixth annual Earth Day Expo when they open, which will feature tons of fun (and free!) activities that’ll help you keep the greenery green.

Do you hear that, brokesters? Hark, in the distance, but growing stronger every day, is the faint jingle of SUMMER 2K13, barreling its way to your doorstep like so much tanning-oil lubed Santa Claus. We’re trying our not to get too amped up yet, considering we just got like the second biggest snowstorm of the year two days ago, but the signs are starting to pop up already. Namely, Habana Outpost, that oasis of warm-weather outdoor drinking (and exquisite peeing environs), opens its gates for the season in a mere 3.5 weeks. And if a summer of slinging frozen drinks and roasted corn sounds good by you, the bar is hiring this week! (more…)
For all of our celebration of Brooklyn’s nightlife, with its almost non-existent last calls and bars on every corner, it never seemed like it could hold a candle to New Orleans. In New Orleans, last call is non-existent and you can wander the French Quarter, drink in hand. But DNA Info says, now, a group of residents is finally putting their foot down, drawing the line at a Habana Outpost, um, outpost, going up in the French Quarter. (more…)
This is the weekend for grabbing summer, throwing it on the bed and having one last big sloppy fling before you trudge back off to the real world on Tuesday. Perhaps you’ll spend it touring Brooklyn’s best dive bars, or jumping into the pool one last time. But you students/parents out there know there’s a part of you that should be preparing for school. This Habana Outpost Back to School Bash on Monday is you saving grace: drinking for you, free school supplies for the kids. Just as school was meant to be! Oh and Elmo is going to be there too, which we assume is real Elmo and not anti-semitic Elmo. (more…)
So your ex-boyfriend is coming to visit you in Brooklyn for a two-week trial period to “see if he could see himself actually living here” and while you believe it’s impossible to for him to really know in such a short, pressure-cooker of a visit, you miss him and you want him to move here, so you’re entertaining the idea that this trip could seal the deal.
You two dated three years — two spent together in New Orleans, one apart when you moved to New York — until the distance became too much and you had to break up. But it turns out you still care about each other and most of your problems resulted from being apart. You both are working off the premise he’s just not that into New York, but definitely still into you. So what makes up the perfect sales pitch? (more…)
We tell people all the time that NYC is a great place to live even when you’re broke, and never is that truer than in the summer, when the city splits open at the seams and releases everyone into the wide open. The almost nightly barrage of free movies, free concerts, cheap drinking spots and no-cost revelry makes you drunk on the idea that this is indeed the best city in the world, even if you don’t have a dime. And there’s seemingly more every year. Here, in honor of today’s high temp, our top 88 reasons why summer belongs to brokesters: (more…)
One week in Broketown: Dave makes out with a stranger during a dance-floor balloon drop and someone yells “Get a room!” Rachel gets smoochy along with lots of other hammered horny hipsters on sloppy drunk bus back from Tiki Disco at Rippers Rockaway Beach. Alison ditches a jerky first date at Habana Outpost. Kenji gets romantical and makes crepes for his date, only to later discover she has severe gluten intolerance and he has actually poisoned her.
There are way more than eight million dating stories in this only sometimes Naked City. What’s yours?
