From the inbox this morning, there’s major news in Cody’s Greenpoint empire.

Want to let you know that Brooklyn Label is almost done with it’s re-vamping. Here is what we have to say:

New hours, new menu… same great attitude at Brooklyn Label. We are now open weeknights for dinner, until 9 pm. On Friday, Saturday, and Sunday, we are still open until 10pm. We’ve also added a healthy selection of vegan and vegetarian items to the dinner menu, and there’s more to come. The coffee and espresso drinks are still the best, and it’s still a very cool place to hang out.

Over at Papacitos we are planning a May 5th Opening of the Garden with a big festive party! Papacitos has great new Specials Nightly, a daily Taco Special for only $1.50 with Tecates only $2. In addition, starting May 5th Papacitos Goes LATE NIGHT!! Delivery will be available from MIDNIGHT – 5AM!!! Check out papacitosbrooklyn.blogspot.com for all the new delivery details.

And finally Brooklyn Standard is hiring Locals! Look at the site for a updated profile, opening date, and email info for JOBS!! Fighting un-employment at a local level.

Although I’m still not ready to deal with Brooklyn Label – I was in there not but two weeks ago to grab coffee and a bagel to go and it was like a fifteen minute ordeal and I was the only person there. But, I am going to promise to have a little more patience and go there again, one day.

Papacito’s on the other hand is pretty great. Quick delivery – and the dude even trekked up the five flights to bring it to my door. The burritos are really good and in just a couple of months they’re going to be delivering until 5am (seriously?!). Wow.

Taking a closer look at the Brooklyn Standard blog, the latest post describes Cody’s latest joint as the new standard for the local bodega.

Brooklyn Standard Deli LLC is a natural foods Grocery, Bakery, Convenience Mart, and Eatery. It is the new standard for the “Bodega”: giving the neighborhood what it needs. Everything you love about your local Bodega: smokes, soda, cheap eats, egg on a roll, deli sandwiches, news paper and magazines, late night munchies.

Beginning April 1st, 2009 all of this, and more, can be experienced 7 days a week from 7 am to 11 pm at Brooklyn Standard’s 1400 sq. foot locally and artistically customized space at 188 Nassau Ave., at Jewel and Humboldt.

Brooklyn Standard sounds awesome (and what a pretty chandelier!). And around the corner from where I grew up, nonetheless. I’m kinda missing my old side of the Point. Especially with all the new things popping up over there.

I know you probably are super busy but please help fuel my blog addiction. Is it possible to become addicted to reading blogs? Blogism I guess they might call it.
