Well it doesn’t quite feel like Spring yet but there I’m trying to bring a little optimism to the table this week. It’s nice to have had a few weeks where it’s still light out in the evening, summer concert announcements can’t be too far away and we’ve got metal, dance, pop, experimental and soul […]
The event is returning this year with music, food, and of course, beer from some of your favorite New York breweries. Tickets start at $65 and if you haven’t been to The Weylin (an event space inside the iconic Williamsburgh Savings Bank) check it out before it becomes the lobby of a condo. The Brooklyn […]
Well, that jerk Toby had me landlocked last week. Things I learned: you can make plans to go to Miami Music Week, but sometimes winter storms have other plans for you. Speaking of which, how the hell are we supposed to keep up with all of these fancy names for sh*t weather: Bomb Cyclone, Polar […]

St. Patrick’s Day is on Saturday March 17 this year and here’s an event you can attend to avoid the green-beer swilling masses. You are probably already familiar with Grand Street Restaurant Week. In a similar vein, a dozen Grand Street bars will be teaming up to offer food and drink specials for St. Patty’s […]
