The Park Church Co-Op (129 Russell Street) has been hosting weekday happy hours at local bars for neighbors to gather, get to know each other and chat about whatever is on their minds. The church will even buy your first drink (!), so this seems like a pretty low-stakes way to get involved in your local house of worship/performance space/community center. The next one is happening tomorrow night (8/1) at Goldie’s (195 Nassau Ave) at 6:30pm.

HAIRCARE: KENNALAND| 113 Franklin Street Amy Bradbury, Head Stylist & Laura Estroff, Head Colorist
Greenpointers: What are the biggest changes that your hair goes through in the winter months?
Amy Bradbury: It tends to be more dry so a lot more people need to use a heavier conditioner or a mask and use products that help with a drier scalp for dandruff or static.
Laura Estroff: Also, your hair tends to get really tangled on the ends due to scarves or hoods or hats, so using moisturizing products is huge, as well as masks. A lot of people also have hat hair from their hats so something like a dry shampoo will help reduce the oil and give you a little more life and volume.Continue reading →
The NYPD has released surveillance images of two men suspected of carrying out a violent attack against another man on Nassau Aveune between Diamond and Newel Streets on September 15th. According to News 12, two men approached a 36 year-old man from behind, and knocked him to the ground. Once he fell, the assailants continued to punch and kick the victim’s face and body. The victim was taken to Bellevue Hospital.
While members of the North Brooklyn Community facebook page have speculated that the attack began with a game of pool at Goldies, the bar’s managers say there was no argument inside the bar. They explain, “the police did inform us to an attack that happened several blocks away, as they stopped by to review the cameras we have that show the sidewalk, I think to see if they could track whoever did the attack as they passed by. There certainly was no attack inside or outside of Goldie’s.”Continue reading →
A year ago, we were at the beginning of a five-day intolerable heat wave. Luckily, it seems we’ll only get a handful of 90°+ days this year which means more time outside drinking frozen cocktails!

It just so happens that they’re perfect for that cooling afternoon drink or to pretend you’re actually on a tropical vacation. Here are the spots happy to put a tiny umbrella in your drink.
