The buzz around the hive…

The Brooklyn blogging community was all a flutter with news of MTV’s The Real World coming to Brooklyn for their 21st season. There are a ton of posts across the internet but the comedy gold is in the comments. Check out Gawker and Curbed for some chuckles.

There’s a new bar with a twist coming to Franklin Street. The Production Lounge “is a place were you can sit back and relax. Enjoy a cocktail and a bite to eat, or just some coffee and desert and at any given time you can watch various types of entertainment going on from auditions and rehearsals, to modeling shoots and workshops. Open mic nights and jam sessions to poetry readings and scene study classes. And best of all, it will be all live and the cameras will be rolling while you watch!” Oooo voyeurism comes to The Point!
And as for new bars, I wonder what’s going to come of the Manhattan Ave joint that has a For Rent sign in the window. I passed by today and the gates were up, the door open and the lights on.
Here’s an annoying one – Brooklyn Glamour is doing some sort of Mizz Greenpoint pageant at East Coast Aliens. Who wants to place bets the crowning will most undeniably be a hipster from Montana who’s lived here about five minutes? It’s a disgrace.

Greenpointer owns Kentucky Derby winner Big Brown. Who knew? – Washington Post
