Say “Thanks” or “Happy Birthday!” with a ten-pack of these cards from Etsy.

Eat These Wings

Because you can never get enough: Greenpoint bar Red Star is holding a wing-off this Saturday to determine the best wings in Brooklyn. Brooklyn Borough President/official mascot Marty Markowitz will be presenting the trophies. Come drink beer, lick sauce off your hands, etc. Plus, wouldn’t you rather spend Valentine’s day recovering from a wing-induced hangover?

Hot Chip and French Horn Rebellion at Music Hall

IMG_8427.JPG
A shameless night of dancing and sweating is what I would call last night’s sold-out Hot Chip show at Music Hall of Williamsburg. It’s rare to see a massive crowd so willingly succumb to dance beats, but Hot Chip (and the happy hour specials) were able to entrance the crowd for their hour and a half long set. Having already sold out two shows at Terminal 5, these tickets were hard to come by, but those who got in were captivated by the British electro-pop’s seemingly flawless set. Earlier this week Hot Chip celebrated the digital released their fourth studio album, “One Life Stand.” The British ensemble performed tracks from their latest release as well as crowd favorites including, “Over and Over” and “Ready for the Floor.”
Hot Chip drew a massive crowd of skinny jean wearing hipsters who all seemed to be surprisingly impressed by the opening act, French Horn Rebellion. The Brooklyn-based electronic duo drew a large crowd away from the downstairs bar to serve up a batch of hot beats, a dash of drama and one killer french horn solo from the balcony.
