Yes you might be tired of all things Macauley Culkin/pizza related, but this one is pretty good. Macauley acted out an almost perfect recreation of the 1981 short film Andy Warhol Eats A Hamburger, except of course with pizza. I’ve [Read more...]
From the Wall Street Journal:
City Council Member Stephen Levin must decide by the council’s last session of the year Thursday whether to vote against a measure to allow two towers—one 30 stories, one 40 stories—at 77 Commercial St., instead of two 15-story buildings.
The vote by Mr. Levin, who represents the area on the council, will likely be followed by his colleagues.
If allowed to build higher, developers Joseph Chetrit and David Bistricer would be expected to deliver 200 units of affordable housing and money for a long-promised park, softening the impact of thousands of new residents moving to the area. But to some in Greenpoint, voting no represents a rare opportunity to put a brake on the rapid pace of development.
We’re not hopeful that Levin will vote to limit the height of the 77 Commercial Street development. Especially since he voted to approve the Greenpoint Landing project after they threw the community a couple of bones. (Greenpointers suspects a conspiracy.) Very disappointing since a large part of his campaign pitch in Greenpoint was built around his opposition to the towers.
Saturday will be a good time to finish up your holiday shopping. You can reward yourself when you’re done at the Brooklyn Night Bazaar with two really fun bands: So So Glos and California X. The So Sos are a Brooklyn staple and their live shows are always fantastic. California X released their tragically underrated self-titled debut this year and its one of our favorites of 2013. We’re looking forward to catching them live.
So So Glos – Lost Weekend
California X – Spider X
Since we love all things Tribe:
Busta Rhymes and Q-Tip have just released a new collaborative mixtape. It’s called The Abstract & the Dragon, and it features “Thank You”, their recently released single with Kanye West and Lil Wayne. It’s also got guest spots from A Tribe Called Quest, Raekwon, Missy Elliott, Talib Kweli, and others.
‘Tis the season… for holiday markets to popup all over the city. People line the streets hoping to score local handmade goodies and artisanal wares. Sure these markets are great places to hit with your Xmas checklist, but now, for the fist time ever, Press Vintage brings the flea to you. Introducing the First Annual #EATANDFLEA Brunch Bazaar, a holiday pop-up taking place at Tutu’s and combining all of your favorite weekend activities in one. Eat. Drink. Shop. Be Merry.
Frustrated with the commotion of other holiday fairs, Emma Bracy and Ben Martel, founders of Press Vintage, partnered with Tutu’s to create the first ever #EATANDFLEA Brunch Bazaar: brunch in the front, bazaar-ing in the back, with some special added touches (like sexy live jazz and free Perrier) that will take you out of holiday hell while you get your necessary shopping on.
This one-of-a-kind holiday shopping experience highlights local vendors with fly gifts for all. Between Press Vintage‘s men’s–women’s–unisex offerings and Various Love Affairs‘ handmade designer digs you’ll have your clothing needs covered. Friends think they fancy, huh? Check out the jewelry selection, including Alkhemi9‘s metal masterpieces and the special sneak-peak of jewelry line KRI.MARINO (formerly of Downtown Diaries fame).
#EATANDFLEA taking place at Tutu’s, 25 Bogart Street, noon to 6pm on Saturdays (12/14) and (12/21).

From the “this is why we can’t have nice things in Greenpoint” file.
On Monday, December 16, Eat in Greenpoint will host a special dinner for people that like yoga, vegetarian food, and complete silence. The creators of the Sunday night silent dinners are teaming up with Pop Up Yoga NYC and Imagination Space for the event, which will take place entirely inside the tiny restaurant. [Read more...]
The rumors we have been hearing for the past month are true. Los Angeles Times confirms Sriracha shipping is halted for 30 days by state regulators. The city of Irwindale sued Huy Fong Foods, the manufacturer of Sriracha, Chili Garlic and Sambal Oelek, over odors which residents claim cause health issues. Production is stopped to give experts time to identify the cause and solution to the smells.
But have no fear! With Sriracha in limited simply, connoisseurs of the Asian hot sauce can take this opportunity to try a hand at making it themselves. Just fill up an old rooster bottle, and it’s practically the same: [Read more...]
The six piece band shreds with four guitars and has been known to elicit elbow-busting mosh pits. Interesting entertainment for patrons pursuing through hand crafted jewelry and vintage windbreakers. Despite the juvenile moniker, this punk band from Nashville rocks. Also on the line up: Pulring Hiss, Big Ups and Manors. Do yourself a favor – take a Tums and head over to Banker Street Saturday. You won’t want to miss this show.
