And just like that, another month is over. Time sure does fly when you’re eating solid food and partaking in alcohol again! Sober January was a time for introspection, but it was February which fostered appreciation. Sometimes you need to take a break from indulgences to understand their unique role in your life. I’m still […]

If you can remember way back to December of 2016 — God, how time crawls during the Trump era of horrors — Roberta’s began receiving death threats related to Pizzagate. Of course it was all utter nonsense created by a bunch of dim-witted, right-wing trolls. But to commemorate the insanity, they’ve teamed up with LIC Beer […]
WNYC and two anonymous donors (hopefully not right-wing trolls this time) are making it happen.

Now, a consortium of public […]

Woohoo! It’s a short work week! I was really scratching my head on Monday as to why we’re still celebrating President’s Day. After all, the one we have in office now is a total ass clown and the ones who founded the country thought it was cool to own people. It might be time to […]
TRENDING hardcore, CRAZY shows, and…figure skating? Yep, it’s another weird week here in Brooklyn Metaland. Let’s get to it.
Nothing pithy or illuminating to say this week, just more metal. Not that anyone’s complaining… WHAT TO HEAR: At the vanguard of this week’s releases are Harakiri For The Sky and their sweeping fourth full-length, Arson (Art of Propaganda). Widely regarded as one of the most redeemable post-black-metal acts in the infinite yawning maw of […]
The new ferry route will operate between North Williamsburg and 20th Street/Ave C (Stuyvesant Cove) in Manhattan. The MTA and DOT announced their plans for increased ferry service at a Community Board 1 presentation on Tuesday: during rush hours (which have yet to be defined), the plan is to run 8 boats per hour in […]
