The Village Voice is proud to announce the final lineup of 60+ breweries for the 5th Annual Brooklyn Pour Craft Beer Festival on Saturday, September 26th from 3pm – 6pm at Brooklyn Expo Center here in Greenpoint!
Marie Mamonia, founder of WeMakePeace.org, contacted Greenpointers about an album release she is putting out for International Peace Day, on the 21st. She brought in some local acts, and with the proceeds giving 80% back to the cause, we were at least going to have a listen. (Beats the paltry return on the UHO and rapper CD scams in Midtown).
She picked some good acts.
Buy window disappears this Thursday so here’s the link, and here is our favorite performer:
Kevin Maher is a busy man. In addition to his professional duties as a producer for Comedy Central and freelance writer for IFC, Maher is a full-time husband and father of two boys. Even still, he manages to eek out just enough time to “geek out” on pop culture topics at Nitehawk Cinema once a month. His event, “Kevin Geeks Out“, offers a deep dive into a particular topic by inviting guest speakers, sharing film and TV clips, and producing multimedia presentations.
This coming Thursday, September 17 at 9:30 pm he’s taking on the light-hearted topic of the end of the world: the Apocalypse. It will be his fourth show at Nitehawk (136 Metropolitan Ave.) in as many months.

Before, it served two purposes. You came to Sunshine Laundromat and Pinball because you either wanted to do your laundry, or you wanted to play a machine from the incredible collection of pinball. Or, of course, you wanted to hang out with the owner Peter and his awesome lab Choco.
Now, you’ll have so many more reasons. Sunshine, in case you haven’t noticed while walking past on your bleary-eyed morning stumble to Upright, has got a brand new bag. Continue reading →
