It’s Tuesday, the fifth day of the year, and we’re finally leaving things like 2015’s extended summer and Charlotte Flair being a face and staying home and being boring behind.

Holiday shopping is stressful, what with your family members asking for bad gifts and the crowded stores and the people waiting to steal your credit card information from online shopping sites. We do what we can to help with our gift guides, but we can’t do it alone. So, the DUMBO Business Improvement District is stepping in to just hand out free DUMBO cash to that’s legal currency at participating businesses in the area.

You know, usually Tuesday feels a little better than Monday. This particular Tuesday though, it feels like the world is just coming apart at the seams. You’ve got a junior Mussolini running on top of the Republican field, you’ve got the Supreme Court thinking about upending the entire idea of voting power in America and the less said about governing in New York State the better. Sorry, didn’t mean to bring you down. Break through Existential Dread Tuesday by checking out the Brokelyn Event Calendar, particularly these fun things to do. (more…)

Baseball is over until spring, so on the one hand there’s a good reason to go out and do stuff tonight. On the other hand, the Mets just lost the World Series, so there’s a good reason to sit in the dark and not do anything tonight. If you want to do stuff, the Brokelyn Events Calendar is here for you.

It’s Monday, and it’s a big day. Not because you want to shoot yourself into the week with energy or because Alberto Del Rio returned to the WWE last night, but because this is the last day of the week before you should let baseball take over your life and watch the Mets in the World Series. Fortunately thanks to the Brokelyn Events Calendar, you’ve got some options as to what your one non-baseball watching night out should be. (more…)

Oh, hello there. I didn’t think anyone would be around, doing nerd stuff like reading today, what with the sudden onset of spring-like weather hitting again and chasing away any thoughts of fall moving its stuff in and getting comfortable. That being said, you’re here, so at the very least I can let you know some good stuff to do tonight that I found on the Brokelyn Events Calendar. You could even get out there and do it wearing a t-shirt. (more…)
