Sultry weather falls across the land—yet Halloween hour is close at hand. Creatures crawl in search of blood to terrorize our North Brooklyn ‘hood.

And though you fight to stay alive, your body starts to shiver; for no mere mortal can resist the evil of the thriller.

Humboldt & Jackson Has a New Dinner Menu, But First Let’s Talk About Humboldt & Jackson

Spaghetti and Mama’s Meatballs. Photo by Molly Tavoletti.

Echoes of the Cozy Royale catering hall can still be heard in the warm dining room in the back of the bar at Humboldt & Jackson (434 Humboldt Street). The Royale’s former owner, Joanne Perrotta, had turned down many other offers when she was looking to retire. For years, families and neighbors gathered for dinners there, and Perrotta wished to pass on that sense of community along with the space. Perrotta cared more about who was going to take the place over rather than what it was going to be.

The first time I set foot in Humboldt & Jackson was the very day it opened. I followed the renovation of the Cozy Royale into this place, a newly-titled “American Tasting Room,” step-by-step on my daily walk to the Graham Avenue L train and was thrilled to have a prospective place to call my own—my Cheers, if you will. I would cement my status by getting in right at the beginning. Over the three years since their opening I realized that the feeling of ownership and comfort that I felt is exactly what Bill Reed, the bar’s charismatic owner, wants for all his guests.

Your Ultimate North Brooklyn Derby Day Guide

The sun’s been peeking out just enough to give us a taste of summer while whetting our palettes for delectable mint juleps, the staple drink of the Kentucky Derby. For almost a hundred years the fresh-tasting cocktail has been served up at Churchill Downs to thirsty horserace fans. And the two-minute run for the roses isn’t just a vehicle for cocktails, it’s also a runway for southern-style fashions. When the race began TV broadcasts in the 60s, women got the chance to stand out for their moment of fame by donning ever-spectacular millinery. And it seems that the hats just keep getting bigger and bolder—the royal wedding 2011 renewed an interest in the grand hats. If you plan on watching, dressing in your finest and hitting the town, here’s our picks for where to celebrate Derby Day in North Brooklyn this Saturday May 6th!

Pushed It To The Limit: The Pants-Splitting Black Tap Popup At Humboldt & Jackson

Humboldt & Jackson - Black Tap Sundaes
Cookies N Cream Supreme and The Cookie Shake

Ok, so the headline is a bit of a misdirect. A few years ago on a trip to Barcelona, after stuffing myself silly with salty cheeses, meats, olives and wine for a week I actually did split my pants—and with a sweatshirt tied around my waist, I had to make an emergency run to H&M to appropriately clothe myself. So before I headed to Humboldt & Jackson’s Black Tap takeover on Saturday it actually crossed my mind that all the calories might cause another trouser explosion—but thankfully my will, and my pants, held strong.

Humboldt and Jackson (434 Humboldt Street) has been delighting the neighborhood with popup chefs and restaurants since they opened their doors three years ago—so if you’re a foodie you can get in the know and impress your friends by following their Instagram, which is where they announce all their events. And on this occasion, they teamed up with Black Tap. In case you’ve been living under a pile of fancy foodstuffs (or you’re not a millenial), the restaurant is famous for their epic and Instagram-worthy #crazyshakes boasting lines that can get up to six hours long. It’s a next level burger and shake joint and on many tourists’ Manhattan-must-do lists. Continue reading
