Get your Rick Dance on dog, it’s a big night. A big night for the Rick Dance.
Well, we made it, everyone. We were spared the wrath of Hurricane Joaquin, and not only that, our lack of total panic has been rewarded with some pretty freaking nice weather this week. How best to celebrate? Well, if you look at the Brokelyn Events Calendar, there are plenty of cool things to do. These five recommended here though, are the bonafide best things to do tonight in Brooklyn, so put on a light layer (without no rain boots) and haul yourself to one of them. (more…)
Well, it’s official. After a summer of rumors, Cameo Gallery has announced that it will close permanently on November 21. We kind of knew it was coming, and probably so did they, but it’s still no fun to hear.
The news comes as the latest in a slew of closures of BK event venues. Cameo has gone the way of Trash Bar, and dozens of other venues that suffered rent hikes and shuttered their windows. (more…)

Here we are on Thursday and we haven’t been washed away by a hurricane yet. Now the word is that all the rain and the wind and the need for sandbags will come this weekend, so you know what you should do today? Make today your weekend! As the Brokelyn Events Calendar shows, there’s plenty to do, and those things to do have a weekend-y edge to them like a jamborree, a rock show and a dance party. (more…)

Working from home is hard. You get distracted by your roommates, your cat feels neglected and sits on your computer, you get the insatiable urge to catch up on the latest episode of whatever you’re binge watching, the next door neighbor is rehearsing with their experimental Satanic grindcore band and your walls are made of paper. So, you go to the local coffee shop, but how long can you really hang out in a coffee shop before succumbing to the caffeine jitters and going into debt from all that expensive fair trade coffee? Wouldn’t it be great if, instead, you could bring your laptop to a bar with a great happy hour? Somewhere where instead of getting distracted by your cat, you could take work breaks where you shoot the shit with a bartender, who are known to provide great inspiration?
GUESS WHAT? You totally can do that, because there’s a bunch of Brooklyn bars with wifi, happy hours that start early and best of all, plenty of space for you to get some work done. (more…)

As I understand it, Brooklyn is about to be hit with a rainstorm of biblical proportions, a period of rain and gloom that hasn’t been seen since ol’ Noah was undertaking his exploits that would eventually earn him a Hollywood adaptation by Darren Aronofsky. The way I see it, you can either give in to the gloom and work on your Morrissey-inspired poetry, or you can slap on your rain boots and hit up one of these fun things to do found on the Brokelyn Events Calendar. I say do the second one, since if you brave the rain when no one else will, it’s a shorter wait for a drink at the bar AND you get to learn about sword swallowing or hang out with Mara Wilson.

You can feel it in your sexy young bones, New York City being swept up in a wave of sports (specifically NL EAST CHAMPION NEW YORK METS) fever. Resist all you want, soon you too will be screaming things at a bar along with other people who are hoping the screaming will help move things your way. Of course, you could also take that aggression and get out there and compete at sports, but what’s out there? Oh hey, Brewskee-ball is, and a sport that encourages both alcohol consumption by its competitors and a lack of much movement, it sounds perfect for you. Even better, we can get you hefty discount a full season of all the action. (more…)

It’s Tuesday and that’s pretty good, in the sense that it isn’t Monday, right? Right. Also in the sense that there’s some pretty good things going on, as per the Brokelyn Events Calendar, which obviously isn’t special to Tuesday but is at least nice. I don’t know, Tuesdays are pretty anonymous, but maybe you can make your Tuesday less so by going out and having some fun at one of these things. (more…)

Hello there everyone. Glad to see we’ve all survived the spectacular destruction wrought by the super blood moon, what with the raining sulfur and the dead rising and the super werewolves. Now that we’re over that, you might wish you’d been killed in the ensuing chaos because it’s Monday. If that had happened though, you wouldn’t have been able to enjoy the fun tonight, as prophesied by the Brokelyn Events Calendar, like a comedic anniversary, bingo and finding out why everyone’s going so damn crazy about bread.

As they do every year, Michelin is about to announce what they consider to be the best restaurants in New York City. And while we all love a good meal out on the town, sometimes you don’t want to take out a mortgage to be able to afford it. So that’s why we have the Michelin Bib Gourmands, which are the best restaurants the prestigious guide says you can get two courses and a glass of wine or dessert for $40 or less. Brooklyn is all over the list, with 32 restaurants to eat out at and look fancy and impressive, which is great. However, when it comes to choosing the dessert or the wine, don’t ask us what you to do. It’s your journey. (more…)

Wednesday is here and that means fall is here too. Well, fine, I guess that’s just the way it’s gotta be. Fortunately for us all, the first day of fall has some great stuff going on, as found on the Brokelyn Events Calendar. So put on your sweater or your hoodie, get out there and have some fun. Oh hey wait, actually leave that crap at home, it’s gonna be like 70 degrees at night. (more…)
