Loaves and Fishes: The Hook-up (12/29)

Behold the Loaves! Via The Straits Times
Behold the Loaves! Via The Straits Times

Hey, Greenpoint! Hope you’re keeping warm in this frigid weather, and enjoying the swing time between Christmas and the New Year. You might be merry, but the news cycle was biblical. Both Loaves and Fishes were in the spotlight.

Up first, lovely loaves. A bread crawl through NYC (via Singapore!) finds the best bread in all boroughs at Torst (615 Manhattan Avenue). The Greenpoint Sour and Russian Rye got special shoutouts!

As for Fishes: Greenpoint Fish and Lobster (114 Nassau Ave) hosted its 3rd Annual Feast of the Seven Fishes Dinner on Christmas Eve. The dinner is an Italian-American Christmas tradition. And it wasn’t just diners at the restaurant who were feasting. According to News 12, Greenpoint Fish and Lobster sold 100 pounds of fish, more than 100 lobsters and almost 1,000 clams in the two days before Christmas Eve to neighbors looking to make their own holiday meals. 

But, not every restaurant in Greenpoint felt such loving vibes over the holiday. In fact, Peking Express (237 Nassau Avenue) was robbed of $1,200 on Christmas Eve. Police are asking the public to help identify the perpetrator.

Chicano Batman Packs Warsaw on Fall Tour for ‘Freedom is Free’

All Photos by Onile Thomson

Chicano Batman packed Warsaw (261 Driggs Ave) for their second night in New York City. The fall tour supports their album Freedom Is Free, released in March. The album is among Billboard’s Best Albums of 2017 So Far and was recorded at Diamond Mine Recordings in nearby Long Island City. The tour kicked off in their hometown of Los Angeles late September, with three sold-out shows at The Fonda Theatre.

Openers Khruangbin & The Shacks started off the evening with mellow vibes and some instrumental tracks that felt almost improvised. The tempo eventually revved up a bit to pump-up the audience in preparation for the energetic headliners. Chicano Batman blends the sounds of soul, Brazilian Tropicalía and a bit of old school R&B. Like the well-dressed performers of their 1970’s predecessors, these are show men. You can see a display of that showmanship in their debut Conan performance filmed earlier this year.
