You might know Rafael Espinal as the City Council Member from Brooklyn who repealed the “no dancing” Cabaret Law and established the Office of Nightlife. Maybe you’ve heard about his work to reduce the plastic pollution in our oceans and parks by banning plastic straws. Or maybe you’ve met him around Brooklyn, where he can […]
This is sad, but unsurprising news. We remember a time in the early aughts when Enid’s was the most popular bar in North Brooklyn. The trendsetting bar and cafe set the pace for countless establishments that have sprung up since, outliving many of them as the neighborhood underwent dramatic change. It’s still a damn fine […]
Crazy good records on tap this week, five weeks until spring, it’s dark and we’re wearing sunglasses. Let’s do this.
