Today marks the official grand opening of the (insanely cute) Fred Flare store on Meserole. There will be champagne, shopping & tasty treats for all at 7pm sharp! – Metromix & Refinery29
Grub Street has a first look at the new Kellogg’s Diner and it sounds ridiculous. Zagat rated chefs, mixologists at the bar and a lobster tank? Seriously? Not that any of this sounds bad, it just sounds a little over the top. Hey, but they’re still going to open 24 hours. – Grub Street
That degenerate teacher’s aide who was touching cheerleaders at 126 earlier this year has finally been charged. “Johnathan Williams, 29, was arrested for allegedly groping, fondling and harassing at least nine girls and a boy at Junior High School 126.” – NYDN
On Saturday night I passed by Production Lounge and it was hopping. It looked like a premier party with velvet ropes and quite a few hoity-toity looking peeps. It looked insteresting nonetheless. Not something I imagine is going to last too long but I’d like to see it find it’s niche. There are worse places in this neighborhood, that’s for sure.

A whole lotta harvesting going on in the ‘hood. – Eating In Translation & P.S. 132
This Sunday Black Rabbit is holding their First Annual Bobby Bingo Birthday Party. There promises to be outrageous prizes and free shots, plus an “intense competition as our most loyal bingo players compete for the coveted GOLDEN DOBBER AWARD! The Golden Dobber Winner gets free drinks at bingo for a year!” Wow, that does sound intense. – Black Rabbit
The Brooklyn Paper has a story titled What is a Brooklyn Girl? – If you’re originally from Brooklyn then you will find this HYSTERICALLY inaccurate. My favorite part? “Brooklyn girls push pedals: “A Brooklyn girl commutes on a bike and she probably rides with her baby on the back of it,” said Dave Dixon of Dixon’s Bicycle Shop in Park Slope.” That deserves an LOL. – The Brooklyn Paper
North Brooklyn is in store for another rezoning plan. “High-rise towers have become a common site in Williamsburg, both on the north and south sides, and the proposed rezoning is planned to limit major skyline and character changes throughout Greenpoint and East Williamsburg.” – Greenpoint Star via CB1info
