We’re a “have it your way” generation, right? We want everything tailored to our specific interests, tastes, and needs—so it’s only fitting that the create-your-own-adventure type of dining is taking off (à la Chipotle). In New York City, we’re lucky enough to have a lot of places that fit the bill: S’mac, Pomme Frites, Meatball […]
Williamsburg—and much of New York in general—has seemingly become a safe space for LGBTQ-identifying individuals over the last few years. However, two local men found out the unfortunate reality on Monday evening that hate towards same-sex couples still exists in our progressive city.
Maybe, just maybe, winter is finally over. With the raft of summer show announcements this week as well, seems like we can finally turn our attentions to spending time outside our apartments. There are plenty of great shows to catch this weekend, and here are the highlights.
Tucked away down an alley, hidden from view in East Williamsburg is a gorgeous, pink Australian cafe that’s destined to become the neighborhood’s next buzz restaurant. As lovely as a Thiebaud painting, the curiously named Carthage Must Be Destroyed, is situated in an old industrial warehouse which has been transformed into an enchanting homage to […]

In Bushwick, there’s a new bar from the people behind Old Stanley’s. Pretty much everything they touch is gold in our book, so you can count on this being a welcome addition to the neighborhood.

We return once again to our regular schedule after a weekend away to witness another regular occurrence, sporting heartache at the hands feet of my local team. Throw in a much lighter wallet coupled with some jetlag and it sounds like a bit of a waste of time, but much like music, you don’t get […]
Things to consider: anyone who has ever deemed themselves a fan of LCD Soundsystem knows loss, disappointment, and the aching void left unfilled in the absence of a band they love. In 2011, it wasn’t ‘see you later,’ but ‘goodbye for good’—or so the fans believed. There was no implication of this being a publicity […]
Free shit alert! Starting April 22nd through July, Steve Madden Music will be holding one free show a month at Music Hall of Williamsburg.
