Happy St. Patrick’s Day everyone. Pour a Guinness, throw on some Primordial, and settle in with another edition of This One Goes To Eleven, now an official green-Exorcist-puke-free institution.
If you’re sick of the tourists and crowds at Brooklyn Flea, good news. Bushwick Flea is coming in April: Bushwick Flea will debut next month on a lot at the corner of Wyckoff and Willoughby avenues featuring more than 35 vendors, with a focus on vintage clothing and jewelry, said founder Rob Abner.

Perhaps it’s the fact I don’t want to write it, or maybe it’s because music this twisted can only really speak for itself, but when a release crop this good comes along, it’s always tempting to just say screw the intro, which is, of course, both its own form of intro and an invitation […]
A new Basque-inspired farm-to-fork restaurant, Maite, is now open in Bushwick. Bushwick Daily paid them a visit and was impressed: Its cross-cultural cuisine is rooted in Basque flavors with a Colombia flair, wrapped up with a major Italian influence.
