And here we were enjoying its already-enticing blend of shit and oil spill. It’s about to get even better: Between the problem child G train and the collapsed East River Ferry ramp, getting to Greenpoint has lately become an even more cumbersome chore than it was when all systems were go, if there ever was […]
The beer gods are smiling on Greenpoint. The guys who own Brouwerij Lane on Greenpoint Ave. today unveiled Greenpoint Beer & Ale Co., the brewery arm of Dirck the Norseman. Dirck has 8 new brews on tap and we tried them all. Here are our thoughts.

When Garry Embry, a native of Louisville, Ky., decided to quit the corporate world and open a bar, specializing in bourbon was a given. Of the more than 100 bourbons lining the bar at the Moonlight […]
Breaking news: the G train is a piece of shit. It’s infrequent, often late, and it wastes your time by meandering hither and thither through Brooklyn before getting anywhere anyone would actually want to go.

This is just what Brooklyn needs! More tourists. Ugh. They should just shuttle them off to Brooklyn Heights: The circuit would focus on everything from Greenpoint’s coffee outpost Café Grumpy, where Lena Dunham’s character Hannah Horvath once slung lattes, to a Bushwick warehouse where Shoshanna (Zosia Mamet) accidentally smokes crack. But don’t expect a glitzy […]
From Greenpointers: The Williamsburg store closed officially this past Sunday, March 2, and the tentative opening date for the new Greenpoint location, at 74 Guernesey between Norman and Nassau, is set to tentatively open this Saturday, March 8th.

Prolific instrumental post rockers Russian Circles stopped by for two sold out shows at Bowery Ballroom and Saint Vitus. Below is a video of the complete Brooklyn set.
Because, duh, doing it with a condom totally ruins the sensation. When you’re out at the bar, or at the club, or at the dance party trying to get your goose fed, do you keep in mind that you should wrap that shit up? Be honest, this is a safe space. Also, we know you’re […]
