3. Wassabasco is kicking it olde school at with their latest burlesque show. Really old school, like when people thought the world was flat and witches were burned at the stake old school. (Friday) (more…)
So many bikes, so little money. At least some of them will be cheaper than usual. via Facebook
Just because the temperatures will start dropping soon and you’ll have to start wearing sweatshirts and (eep) jackets, doesn’t mean you should stop riding your bike. That’s just what the Car Lobby wants. And hell, fall is a perfect time to buy bikes or bike accessories, or at least it seems that way, because Ride Brooklyn is having a giant sale for Labor Day weekend starting Thursday. (more…)
It doesn’t matter what season it is summer, fall or even fummer (summer + fall) when cheap tacos come calling we come in droves. Blind Barber (524 Lorimer Street, Williamsburg) the barbershop that happens to have a cafe/bar in the front will be having $2 Taco Tuesday starting tonight. (more…)
Despite the fact that we don’t want it to, summer is ending one of these days, which is a bummer. However, you can look forward to more than just playoff baseball as the temperatures cool, at least if you win this new contest we’re running with the folks at Glasslands.
Remember the season pass that they sell, the limited-run card that gets you into every show no matter how sold out it is and also gets you a drink when you walk in the door? It usually costs $235, but you can skip all that paying nonsense and get one absolutely free, merely by entering below. How exciting! A magic card that allows you access to every show at Glasslands from September 1 to November 30 (and a drink at that show), in a season that includes shows from Dinowalrus and Javelin, a Robyn dance party and the Glasslands 5th Anniversary party. Why are you still reading? Enter now and win!
Landlords! They’re not all bad guys, even if they’re the guys who get upwards of 60% of the money you make in a month, every month. Still, a little bit of resentment might be natural, so one landlord who manages property across Williamsburg, Bushwick and Bed-Stuy is trying to circumvent that in a novel way. No, not with cheaper rent, but by giving tenants fixies when they sign a lease. We think we’d still rather have the cheaper rent. (more…)
Brokelyn’s collective enthusiasm for dive round-ups and Beer Books is something near and dear to my heart, but I confess that wine is my preferred libation just about always. While discounted beer and well drinks are a dime a dozen, the cold, bubbly fact is that wine is rarely invited to happy hour. Perhaps wine’s European aura implies dollar signs, or the fact that it comes in smaller bottles than liquor – with annoying corks, at that – or maybe it’s because “tempranillo” is harder to pronounce than “ale,” but people seem to think wine is too fancy for happy hour. THAT’S NOT TRUE.
I won’t be fated to a life where my only options are expensive wine at a bar or cheap old grapes at home… and if committed to going out, I’d like to be somewhere $20 gets me three glasses rather than two. I’ve found bars with awesome wine happy hours for me, and therefore I found bars with awesome wine happy hours for us. (more…)
Good Will Hunting, in which the genius played a genius.
Yesterday we were heartbroken to learn we lost Mrs. Doubtfire, Genie, Mr. Keating, Dr. Sean Maguire, Peter Pan, Mork, and one of the most brilliant actors of the last couple decades, when Robin Williams took his own life. Williams left a hell of a cinematic legacy, so a couple spots in Brooklyn will be honoring him with free marathon screenings of his work. (more…)
