It’s the holidays and if you stayed clear of the madness of black Friday and cyber Monday, you might still have a pile of people you need to buy gifts for. Or maybe it’s just time to treat yo’ self! Toasters and electronics are boring. Give and get some original art!
If you don’t live on Franklin Street, you may not have noticed the great series of pop-up stores that have begun to occupy Duke’s Annex, the small space next to Duke’s Liquor Box. Throne Watches is the current pop-up store, and we were curious about their beautiful leatherwork, so we asked Travis Alexander, one of Throne’s founders, about their watches and what you can expect to find at their pop-up store. And now they’ve extended their Duke’s stay, so now you can catch them through the end of December.Continue reading →
That time of year is upon us, when we are supposed to be thinking about family and friends and happiness and cheer, while trying to deflect all the stress and pressure the season also brings. Sometimes a little pampering can help do the trick. Whether you gift it to yourself or a loved one, no one is going to want to return a massage or a great hair cut.
At Sparrow Salon in Greenpoint “everything is intertwined. If you look good you feel good. If you feel good you can do good. If you do good you feel good. And if you feel good you look good. You can’t take one away without the others suffering.” That’s the key behind Sparrow’s blend of massage, hair styling, and sustainable gifts and beauty products.
And for Cyber Monday get 15% off all gift certificates with code “HappyHolidays” and 20% off all retail in the shop or online with code “HolidayGifts”.
Every day get $20 off the first massage and $20 off the first Hair Cut or Color. Just mention this deal during service.

Well folks there are only 2 days until the big Christmas Day and many of us are scrambling. Maybe we forgot about our sister-in-law or that weird cousin no one talks about. Well everyone loves coffee – especially Cafe Grump Coffee. So when you’re getting your first or third daily espresso, grab a gift box before its too late! You don’t want to remember in the airport or on the road and be forced into buying a snow globe. (Nothing against snow globes)
