Welp, the lists are officially out, and while I don’t necessarily object to semi-major sources pumping out their year-enders before December—SEO is an early-bird’s worm, after all—you won’t find one here for at least another two weeks. In other words, keep your eyes peeled and pants on. It’s coming, but as with everything in this […]
It’s that time of year again when we all get stressed out about what to buy our loved ones. Thankfully, there are several markets and pop-ups coming your way to help make the season a little bit brighter (and hopefully less stressful). First off, two markets are coming to the Brooklyn Bazaar. On December 2 […]
Your Thanksgiving travel playlist—presumably enough to get you to familial hell and back—starts here. Dig in, huddled metal masses.
Nestled inside the Franklin Guesthouse hotel in Greenpoint is the second restaurant from the owners of Glasserie. BarGlory serves a fantastic fusion of Mediterranean and Asian dishes in an unassuming environment. Start with their fantastic dumplings, our favorite being Pumpkin, Ricotta & Spicy Apricot ($4 each), though the Shrimp Shu Mai and Lamb & Pistachio […]
Mozilla is launching a Firefox browser update today, claiming it’s much faster than Chrome. To celebrate the occasion (and to help get the word out) they’re offering a free fast ferry between Greenpoint and Manhattan with donuts and free coffee, plus live music on the later ferry on November 16th. More details below: On November 14th, […]
At least Market Hotel and Elsewhere are now open, but this definitely sucks: It’s bittersweet to share that 2018 will be Vans’ last year at our House of Vans Brooklyn location. When we opened doors of the Greenpoint warehouse seven years ago, we never imagined House of Vans would be so well received by the […]
Now that the annoying, street-blocking NYC marathon has passed (can we just cancel the damn thing next year?) there’s a new marathon coming to Williamsburg this Sunday. The New York Sorta Marathon is a .2 mile-long race that’s “basically just a finish line” for people who are too busy to bother with training for a […]
Welcome to another Halloween edition of This One Goes to Eleven, where we’ll be more or less doing the same thing we do, week-in, week-out from January to January. But hey, if that’s what got you in the door today, that’s cool with me. Let the (sonic) terrors reign.
Brooklyn is always packed with things to do on Halloween, but this year it seems like there’s even more going on than usual. We’ve already told you about all the scary films you can see in Williamsburg, Greenpoint and Bushwick. We’re excited to see The Rocky Horror Picture Show at McCarren Park Pool on Saturday! Here are […]
Oh Market Hotel, we’ve missed you so! Welcome back. You can celebrate their grand re-opening November 1 with the always-entertaining So So Glos and LVL UP.
