In Williamsburg, a new vegetarian restaurant and bar has opened in the former home of Moto called Bar Velo: Longtime Williamsburg haunt Cafe Moto has been reborn as a cycling enthusiast’s temple to two-wheeled transportation called Bar Velo, opening Monday on Broadway. John McCormick shut down his 14-year restaurant a few months back to retool the […]
Halloween is on a Monday this year, so many of the major events are on Friday and Saturday. That said, The Brooklyn FRIGHT Bazaar runs all week in Greenpoint. Things start early on Thursday at The Gateway with Del Caesar (as Ceasar Clearwater Revival), No Ice (Bruce Springsteen & The E St Band) and more. […]
Remember all those mean things I said about August last week–how the pickings were slim, there weren’t many shows, and so on? Well I take it all back. This week makes up for it and then some, so let’s thank the almighty law of averages and get on with it.
Here I go again on my own. Going down the only road I’ve ever known. Wait, what? Sorry, blacked out there for a second.
Burned out on this heatwave? Join the fucking party, pal. Trust me when I say it’s cooler down here, six feet under.
The party hits Bushwick this weekend at the Onderdonk House.

Hopefully I’ll doing more of that moving forward, so stay tuned and remember to support your local bands. Now, on to […]

Given the inevitable surge in ridership it will face when the L gets shut down, we’re going to need the improvements: Metropolitan Transportation Authority honchos will finally give the G train the attention straphangers have been demanding for years when they stop L train […]
Apologies for the feature-related interruptions of this section of late, but time and words—as I’ve learned the hard way—are definitely finite resources.
