The San Damiano Mission (85 N 15th Street) has the past few years not only been a church with some cool-as-heck Friars, but also they’ve been the home for a popup BBQ joint, been a community gathering spot, and they’ve hosting concerts of all genres of music in collaboration with The Lot Radio across the street. And if you don’t know The Lot by now, they’re an everyone-feels-welcome outdoor cafe/bar/DJ booth and hang spot.
On Thursday, August 30th, the Lot and The Mission are collaborating to bring talented pianist Hans H. Suh to the Mission for a classical concert. He’ll be playing Schumann – Arabesque; Liszt – Sonata in B minor; and Ravel – La Valse. Tix are $15 and you can get them here.
For many folks, attending church is an annual event. Luckily we have some pretty cool houses of worship right here in our neighborhood, if you’d like to dabble in holiday worship this year. Continue reading →

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 whosoever shall be found without the soul for getting down, must stand and face the shutdown of the L and rot inside Williamsburg’s shell. The foulest stench is in the air, the funk of Newtown Creek’s years. And grizzly ghouls from every tomb are closing in to share your doom. And though you fight to stay alive, your body starts to shiver; for no mere mortal can resist the evil of the thriller.
