The Commodore’s Stephen Tanner and Chris Young have a new big space called El Cortez. The team sort of intentionally ignores any notion about what a Mexican place “should” be, and rather includes dishes and ideas from what Tanner calls “all three Mexicans,” reports Grub Street. Those three include American Mexican, “hot plate Mexican,” and “Mexican-Mexican.” [Read more...]
As if the announcement of the Holy Ship lineup wasn’t enough to rock all of our Monday boats, there’s plenty more reasons that it’s hard as eff to get anything done today. Owsla hardstyle/bass artist Valentino Khan will be gracing Brooklyn with his very awesome presence this Wednesday, 7/8, when he headlines at Output. [Read more...]
Malia was spotted on the set of Girls on Thursday and reportedly has landed a summer internship with Lena Dunham’s critically-acclaimed HBO show, TMZ revealed.
The soon-to-be 17-year-old, whose birthday is on Saturday, was seen at the Aurora Ristorante in Brooklyn
Hey good for you Malia for somehow scoring that internship and good for Aurora for getting more press than they probably ever could have paid for. Let’s just hope Lena Dunham doesn’t bring the Secret Service into any of our favorite dive bars. See more pics at The Daily Mail.

I guess something is happening this weekend, right? Something about independence day, I forget, I did watch that documentary with Will Smith all those years ago. There are some fireworks to see as well. If you’re just looking to rock out with hopefully an extra day off to enjoy, we’ve got you covered too.
This year, Macy’s will be having fireworks at two separate locations: 1.) a double barge barge just south of the Brooklyn Bridge, and 2.) at a series of barges between East 23rd and 42nd Streets.

WHERE TO SEE THE FIREWORKS
DUMBO & Brooklyn Heights
As always, DUMBO and Brooklyn Heights will have fantastic views and most waterfront locations, including Brooklyn Bridge Park, Pier 1 and the Promenade, are open to the public. You can also head the Brooklyn Bridge Garden Bar if you don’t mind shelling out $125. [Read more...]
