Hot Sauce, Summer in the City: A Scorching Afternoon with Heatonist

Heatonist Founder Noah Chaimberg

One of the great things about writing for Greenpointers is occasionally getting to watch dreams transform into reality.

When I first met Heatonist founder Noah Chaimberg, it was on a bitter, snowy Sunday morning back in February. He was shivering on the doorstep of a Wythe Avenue construction site, kindly waiting to greet me and explain his zany vision for a spicy future. He was part-way through a Kickstarter campaign, with the hope of raising enough funds to turn said construction site into a hot sauce tasting room and events space, complete with the world’s first hot sauce sommelier.

FREE Live Performance by Laura & Greg at Sunday’s Summer Market (7/19)

When I first heard of Laura & Greg, I was intrigued by its connection to neighborhood favorite, Van Leeuwen Artisan Ice Cream.  Another Brooklyn-based somebody in a band? I thought it can’t be that good. But then I loaded up their first music video for “Muscle Memory” and discovered a beautifully composed song and a compelling animated video. I don’t have clever words at the moment to give this talented musical duo proper credit. Let’s just say their songs make my ears feel good.

I’m so extremely excited to have them at Sunday’s Greenpointers Summer Market perform live!!!

Sunday, July 19 @Greenpoint Loft (67 West St, 5th Floor) 1-7PM

Reach Out And Touch Faith: Havanah Jesus Makes Divine Skate Style

Chiara-Livia and Mi Gerer are making some serious waves. The sisters are the creatives behind Havanah Jesus, a fashion skate apparel line that is also a film and tv production company, which also produces events and parties. With a “cross between urban life style and holy imagery,” the images have a lifestyle brand down pat. Oh, and it’s pretty awesome  that they’re based in our beloved Greenpoint, too.

I’m particularly psyched about the idea of two sisters running a business, since I’ve been working towards similar goals with my best sister (and only sister). I had the pleasure of catching up with Chiara and Mi to discuss designing and sisterhood.
