Lots of must-hears this week, so let’s get to the business of hearing them. Onward, downward, whatever. WHAT TO HEAR: Leading us off this week is Baroness, one of the few late-2000s sludge acts, along with Mastodon, still carrying the torch aloft. But a long time (and a lot of miles) have passed since the […]
MADRE opened last week at the Franklin Guesthouse hotel in Greenpoint. It’s replaces BarGlory — a small plates joint we loved, operated by by an outside team — with an internally run operation: The cozy new-American restaurant, located at 214 Franklin St., will feature a wide ranging seasonal menu that may change from week to week, […]

It’s named for Abe Vigoda, which is an odd choice for a Tiki-inspired joint, but we appreciate the eclectic choice. Abe’s has two pool tables, plenty of sweet cocktails, and a snacky menu that features hot […]

More from Greenpoint Post: A new Asian-inspired cocktail lounge opened last week on Manhattan Avenue. Sama Street, located at 988 Manhattan Ave. in north Greenpoint, is the brainchild […]
Apologies in advance for the impending sportiness of this section over the next few months. I have my 30th birthday, several weddings, a bunch of work stuff, and a cross-country studio trip for my band all on the ol’ Google calendar. But when I’m here, I’ll do my best to spit up one of these, […]
The delays have already begun, but now the MTA has a detailed map that outlines what to expect from now through summer 2020: With the revised approach, L customers will have normal service during the highest ridership times. Weeknights: 8 PM to 5 AM L trains run every 20 minutes between Brooklyn and Manhattan and […]
Across the world, people are worshipping a zombie prophet and mourning the ashes of humanity’s most famous cathedral. Needless to say, it’s been a pretty metal week in our neck of the multiverse, so stop by and check it out.
