The holiday season is over, Super Bowl Sunday just happened, Valentine’s Day has come and gone, but another annual tradition remains — Phil Collins Day, taking place tomorrow (February 17) at Greenpoint Beer and Ale.

Good Room celebrates a decade of operation this year.

A local baker is serving up sweet treats for the Lunar New Year. More good news for sweet treat fans: Paloma the Bakery opened on Nassau Avenue. Coffee shop by day, bar by night, Red Rover is up and running on Manhattan Avenue.


The Less Dead, from the owner of Brooklyn Safehouse and the Mallard Drake, has also just opened — Lord knows we needed a cheaper, low-key spot to open!

As always, we have a Community Cookbook recipe and a weekend roundup.
