Flight Of The Conchords Will Not Return For Third Season

We’re going to miss you Bret and Jemaine

Bret, Jemaine and James (co-creator/director) said ‚”we’ve noticed the less we say about the future of the show, the more people want to talk about it, so in an effort to reverse this trend we are today announcing that we won’t be returning for a 3rd season. We’re very proud of the two seasons we made and we like the way the show ended. We’d like to thank everyone who helped make the show and also everyone who watched it. While the characters Bret and Jemaine will no longer be around, the real Bret and Jemaine will continue to exist.

Williamsburg Openings

There’s a couple of great new places in the hood. First off, if you haven’t been to The Manhattan Inn, drop everything and go tonight. Great drinks, great food and live piano jazz and ragtime music. As our friend Kate said, the vibe is a little “Deadwoodish,” but in a good way.
The Woods opened a few weeks ago and has quickly become a staff favorite for cheap drinks and tacos. Also, we just tried M Noodle Shop and loved their noodles. If you like M Shanghai Bistro you’ll be happy because it’s run by the same people.
In other news, according to Brooklyn Based the rumors are true… there will be a Freemans Williamsburg, which of course should come as no surprise.

Mountain Man / Alex Bleeker

On Friday December 11th, Mountain Man, Alex Bleeker, Liam the Younger, and Luka (No Demons Here) will descend upon the majestic Lutheran Church of the Messiah in sleepy Greenpoint, Brooklyn for a night of quiet, unamplified ballads and hymns. It’s a real pleasure to host this show in the amazing Church, which has previously been host to performances by Mt. Eerie, Marissa Nadler, Calvin Johnson, and Kria Brekkan, among others. The intimate venue, along with a heaping of blankets, should make the Church basement feel more like a coffee house, or house show, which, in my opinion, is the only way to absorb real, honest to god Folk music.
Here’s a good feel of what Mountain Man will be like live:

BYOB (The B stands for Blankets, and Bourbon).
There’ll be cider, but you’ll have to bourbon it up yourself on the down-low.
It is a show at a church, ya know.

Williamsburg's Fatty 'Cue

Usually when you think of BBQ, you think of richly sauced, sweet, slathered meats dripping with barbecue sauce. But not this place. Not Fatty ‘Cue — where mostly what’s dripping is fat. Deliciously cured and intensely smoked meat fat…
Meet Andrew Pressler, the Chef de Cuisine at the soon-to-launch Fatty ‘Cue in Williamsburg, Brooklyn. He’s showcasing a new concept for delivering high quality, heritage breed meats on the barbie. Introducing the unique spices and flavors from all over Malaysia and Thailand to the bbq lover’s palettes, a passion set in motion by the Fatty ‘Cue founders, Executive Chef Zac Pellaccio and BBQ Pitmaster Robbie Richter. These are flavors they’ve come to master through years of testing and perfecting. A menu full of new ideas that they say, ‚”Americans are ready for”.
So, get ready to get your hands greased up on animal lard, because this, my friends, is their specialty…
