Soul Imperial is starting a new party series tonight Saturday 3/1 at Broken Land (105 Franklin St) from 10pm-2am. They will be playing a mix of throwback hits from all decades with some current tunes as well. This is a continuation of the party they used to have at K&M for over 5 years (and another 3 years at Royal Oak before that). They sent us this mix to give us an idea of what to expect at this hopefully regular party night in Greenpoint. Loving it! Continue reading

Yes I need fish tacos, a bikini, the limbo, beer, sun and warmth! The Diamond Bar can provide a few of these wonderful things that remind of us summer and help us of forget about this dreadful winter we all wish was long in the past.
This Saturday (2/15) from 4-8pm join a handful of summery local vendors at The Diamond Bar (43 Franklin St) and forget for a little bit that it’s still February in New York.
And don’t forget to wear you Hawaiian shirt – duh!
When this world makes you crazy /
And you’ve taken all you can bear /
You call me up /
Because you know I’ll be there Continue reading

Deets: Greenpointers Valentine’s Market on Sunday February 9, 2014 from1-7pm at Greenpoint Loft (67 West St, 5th Fl).
Every year The Diamond (43 Franklin St) – the Greenpoint bar with the gondola in the yard – organizes a ski trip to Plattekill Mountain in upstate New York, followed by an Aprés Ski Party. This year the after party involves a Mac n’ Cheese competition, live ski lounge music and free drinking for skiers from 8-10pm!
Over some delicious mulled wine, I chatted with bar owner and beer genius Dave Pollack about the three most important things in his life (this weekend) – skiing, beer, and mac n’ cheese.
This adventurous and cheesy day is happening this Saturday 1/25/14. Skiing is 6am-7pm. After party starts at 8pm. If you want to get in on this ski trip or enter your mac n’ cheese into the competition, email Dave dave (at) thediamondbrooklyn (dot) com. Continue reading
Broken hearts and sour kisses welcome.
Even if the gift tag says “To: You, From: You” – remember, before you can love anyone else you MUST love yourself – and a great way to show yourself love is a shiny new pair of earrings or a grilled cheese sandwich. We’ll have stuffs for your BFs & GFs, too.
Make sure to RSVP and spread the love!
