Local goods online shop Brooklyn Makers Shop is turning 1 this month! Since their launch on Valentine’s Day last year, Brooklyn Makers has grown to showcase the work of many Brooklyn-based artists and designers. Their selection focuses on locally and sustainably produced items, from home goods to apparel or toys (and the odd unicorn horn).
They’ll be celebrating with us at our Valentine’s Day Market on Sunday, February 9th. Here’s a sample of some of the awesome goods you’ll find there, PLUS a chance at a $100 gift card: Continue reading →
Our pals at Brokelyn just dropped the long-awaited 2014 edition of their Beer Book. And if you were thinking about gifting a box of Duane Reade chocolates to your loved one this V-Day, it’s probably a good time to reconsider. You know what’s better than waxy chocolate? BEER.
For $30, the book includes coupons for 30 beers at 30 bars all over Brooklyn (plus a few extras). So you can throw it in your pocket and hit the borough hard. They’re good for the whole year.
The best part, apart from the whole $1 beer thing, is that the book is like a little glimmer of foamy motivation that will get you to try new bars and neighborhoods that you might not get to otherwise. The Beer Book is actually 2 Books. What’s that, you say? Book 5 covers “Upper Brooklyn”(a new take on North) , which includes G-point, W-burg, B-wick, and B-Stuy (if I was a teenage girl texting, that’s how I’d break it down) and Book 6 covers “Middle Brooklyn,” which includes Cob-Hill, Dit-Park, P-Heights and P-Slope (sorry, not sorry). May we suggest a 30-bar crawl for the non-faint of liver? Continue reading →

The word actor refers to females, unless they receive rewards and the helpful professional on your flight – don’t call her a stewardess, it’s flight attendant. There is something to be said about gender neutrality in the work force, but when it comes to throwing a badass party, leave that to the hostess – tried and true – whose hard work often goes under appreciated. Let’s change that!
Books are dedicated to the subject. Hostessing is an art form in and of itself. You think you just walk into an amazing dinner party and that friendly mood, cocktail in hand and course by course perfection just happens? Continue reading →
