Happy Birthday Dear Diamond… (7/02)

Diamond_BirthdayNeighborhood favorite The Diamond is turning eight this week and you’re invited to their party!

On Thursday they will be celebrating their Eighth Anniversary in style with the return of eight of their favorite draft beers from throughout Diamond’s lifetime. Between 5-8pm these will all be half-price, so the likes of Harviestoun Bitter & Twisted, Local Option Dampfbier, and Schneider Weisse can all be quaffed for a mere $4 a pint. Happy Birthday indeed.

But the party doesn’t stop here. Saturday July 4th they will be hosting their famous Independence Day Grill Out….where $5 gets you a giant bratwurst with potato salad and watermelon, accompanied by a rad patio soundtrack from vinyl junkies Jackson Mico and Proudfoot.

While you’re there be sure to have a quick round of shuffleboard and if you’re rilly good then think about signing up to the monthly tournaments…winners get their name on the esteemed plaque of fame!

Diamond Bar is at 43 Franklin Street.

Greenpointers.com contributor, Chérmelle D. Edwards has a very cool site called smdlr and was featured this week on Serious Eats as one of the best 5 coffee blogs!

A couple who got married in Greenpoint in 1950 and were the first to celebrate their nuptials at the Our Lady of Snow Hall on Graham Avenue, just celebrated their 63rd wedding anniversary. Congratulations, Kay & Joe! (Greenpoint Gazette)

In case you thought everyone was happy about less garbage coming to Greenpoint, local trash collectors are upset about the reduction of capacity for transfer stations in such places as North Brooklyn. In all fairness, it doesn’t make sense to make it harder to get rid of trash in neighborhoods that are about to build monster condos filled with more rubbish makers. So, don’t build the towers and we’re good.  (Craine’s NY)

And finally… Of all things Halloween in Greenpoint this year that I find the most intriguing and terrifying, it would be sitting in a canoe at night on a horror-themed Newton Creek, but that’s exactly what our friends at the North Brooklyn Boat Club are doing this October 31st. (NY Daily News)
