(sponsored)


As we know all too well from the past month, New York weather BE CRAZY. One day it feels like Spring in January and the next, we wake up only to trek through a few feet of toxic slush to a delayed train. If only there was a better way to get the weather report than sifting through an hour-by-hour forecast in a state of half sleep, trying to determine what shoes to put on…

Welcome to the world of Poncho, a personalized weather service that emails/texts you each morning with an update specifically tailored to your daily habits. It’s just like the device in Her, except instead of Scarlet Johansson whispering sweet nothings into your ear, it’s an adorable cat in a poncho telling you the weather. Continue reading

Free Your Time With Vervelux – North Brooklyn Cleaning Service

(sponsored)

Let’s talk about the wonderfulness of a clean home that you didn’t lift a finger to accomplish.

It may seem like a luxurious thing to do, but that feeling of getting home after a long day at work and your entire apartment is tidy and smells terrific is really priceless – and you deserve it, because you did work hard for it – but you didn’t have to do it yourself!

Sure you could clean your own apartment but you could also cook for yourself and pour yourself a glass of wine, but you still go out and have someone else do those things for you on a regular basis, right? One night out in this town could easily be more expensive than that amazing clean home feeling. So what are you waiting for? You don’t have to justify it to anyone – even yourself.

So you are ready for a really clean home – now what? Finding a reliable and trustworthy cleaning person is a whole other endeavor. Not anymore!

The folks at Vervelux, a North Brooklyn based cleaning service for over 6 years just made getting your apartment spotless AND your laundry and dry cleaning done a whole lot easier with a customizable online ordering service! And they service Williamsburg, Bushwick, Greenpoint & LIC. This is the future of cleaning, people!

Picture this: you’re at your desk and check your calendar and realize you have guests coming over for dinner but your place is a wreck and you don’t have a clean shirt to your name. Type in Vervelux.com and they will magically take care of everything!

And as a Brooklynite who cares about your own health and the environment, Vervelux is a green cleaning service, using only eco-friendly products that will get your home truly clean, rather than covered in toxic chemicals. That goes for their Laundry & Dry Cleaning services as well. Think pick-up, clean, fold and drop-off.

This isn’t just house cleaning and laundry service – it’s peace of mind. Vervelux are professionals you can trust to clean your home so you can enjoy living there.

Introducing the Brokelyn Beer Book!

Our pals at Brokelyn just dropped the long-awaited 2014 edition of their Beer Book. And if you were thinking about gifting a box of Duane Reade chocolates to your loved one this V-Day, it’s probably a good time to reconsider. You know what’s better than waxy chocolate? BEER.

For $30, the book includes coupons for 30 beers at 30 bars all over Brooklyn (plus a few extras). So you can throw it in your pocket and hit the borough hard. They’re good for the whole year.

The best part, apart from the whole $1 beer thing, is that the book is like a little glimmer of foamy motivation that will get you to try new bars and neighborhoods that you might not get to otherwise. The Beer Book is actually 2 Books. What’s that, you say? Book 5 covers ”Upper Brooklyn”(a new take on North) , which includes G-point, W-burg, B-wick, and B-Stuy (if I was a teenage girl texting, that’s how I’d break it down) and Book 6 covers “Middle Brooklyn,” which includes Cob-Hill, Dit-Park, P-Heights and P-Slope (sorry, not sorry). May we suggest a 30-bar crawl for the non-faint of liver? Continue reading

Human at Ease Now Taking Applications for 12-Week Training Course

(Sponsored)

Ok, let’s be real. We all ate ourselves to pieces last week and with the holidays just around the corner, we’re not stopping. I like to binge eat as much as the next guy, but it probably wouldn’t hurt to remain physically active while doing so. It’s easier said than done, but our friend Dy from Human at Ease (ease is their middle last name) has a program that guides people through the intense process of getting fit, and as a result, it’s a lot less intimidating.

CSI Rentals Grand Opening Tonight

(Sponsored)

Photographers and filmmakers, your lives are about to get a little easier.  CSI Rentals is opening a new location in Bushwick where you can rent pro cameras, lenses, gels, video equipment and sound gear. Just to clarify, CSI:Miami is not coming to Bushwick, although it really should.

The Grand Opening will take place tonight from 5-7:30pm and will feature live demos of the latest from Sony HD Cinema (camera nerds, go wild), shooting and work flow samples, and as the flyer states (in caps) “FREE GIFTS FOR ALL.” What will these gifts be? We have no idea, but my best guess is a rental coupon or maybe a camera strap? CSI also promises that you will meet friends.  So if you want friends, a new camera strap, and some free snacks, this could be the night that changes your life 4EVER. The new location is at 1138 Flushing Avenue, between the Morgan and Jefferson L stops.

Seriously though, it’s about time we had a place to rent equipment locally, since the hood has become home to so many professional photographers, filmmakers, and artists, as well as photo studios, sound stages, and galleries.  Also it’s worth it to note that they have a delivery option, for the super lazy or super busy among us (could go either way on this one).

FREE GIFTS FOR ALL!

“Smart Aging Face Spray” Guinea Pig

Last year, loyal and daring contributor Peter T got a complimentary spray tan from local Greenpoint business Amber Organic Tan Studio. The tan, as you can see, took Peter from tropicant to tropical!

Marzena recently supported Greenpointers by sponsoring a post and offering readers a discount for her services.

She also offered me a complimentary “Smart Aging” Face and Neck spray (value $50) knowing that tanning is not really my thing. I wear a gold chain with an Italian horn around my neck – I don’t need anything else to scream Queens Guidette while I’m pumping freestyle in Jon’s pick-up truck!
