BYOB and BYO art supplies. *Note, the next meetup is Friday June 23rd; there won’t be a drink n draw tonight.Continue reading →
In 2006, artist and educator Brooke Borg was a recent college graduate with a one-way ticket to Barcelona. In 2012, she finally came back to the United States, MFA in hand and fluent in Catalan, ready to continue teaching and creating art in Brooklyn. Her work has been influenced by her travels, her own family and religious background, and the experiences of others that she’s collected and adroitly examined by using drawing, sculpture, and electronic media. Last week, Borg invited Greenpointers to her Calyer Street studio for a preview of her newest works-in-progress about modern love relationships. Continue reading →

While on a walk in South Williamsburg I saw this amazing Egyptian Ronald McDonald wheat paste by Wizard Skull. Of course I instagrammed it and Wizard Skull sent me more twisted and disturbing Ronald McDonald drawings. The genius doesn’t stop there, as you can see with Freddy Kreuger as Skeletor and Abe Lincoln with a Rick Ross tattoo. Follow @wizardskull
Tuesday 15th – Sapporo Haru, 622 Manhattan Avenue
Our go-to local sushi place when too tired to cook. Thursday 17th – Selamat Pagi, 152 Driggs Avenue
Had been meaning to try the new Balinese place for ages. Mighty glad we did, it was fresh, charming and delicious.
Friday 18th – Calexico, 645 Manhattan Avenue
Finally got the timing right for the 12-1am Happy Hour, which means 2-for-1 Margaritas. The right way to start a weekend!
If your a food blogger, when you go out to eat with your buddies they get annoyed when you make them wait until you’ve finished taking a photograph of the meal before they can dig in. A recent transplant from London and new Greenpointer named Rosie, who runs Foodoodle, must really piss her friends off when she sketches her daily American meals. Aren’t these charming?
She instantly became a New Yorker when she enjoyed Christmas Dinner at Rosemary’s Greenpoint Tavern, which is in Williamsburg. And she’s got good taste: she eats my favorite breakfast, the grapefruit bruleé at Five Leaves and she enjoys Panetonne, olives and Prosecco for breakfast.
